I cannot stress the importance of conscious living enough. I recently switched up a key part of my skincare regimen and that had me substitute my BodyShop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner for the much simpler Thayers Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner.
My artificially green toner was doing a good job but a good, more natural substitute was not a bad idea. I have often seen ladies prescribe witch hazel as a cleanser for the scalp when protective styling. So far, my experience with it has been great. The first night I used it, I literally thought I was cleansing my face with water because I didn’t immediately feel the sting of the toner like I would with the former toners I have used. This was really gentle and slight tingling followed afterward.
Witch hazel is extracted from the shrub and has many benefits as an astringent. It is great for skin care and even scalp care as it combats dandruff. Wellness Mama goes into more details here.
If you have sensitive skin, witch hazel also makes for a great aftershave. Many have claimed that the combination of witch hazel and shea butter gave them great skin! You could try it out! Many have also testified that it worked great to relieve their eczema!
Indeed witch hazel has a ton of uses. So far, I have used it as my toner. After cleansing my face at night, I follow up with the witch hazel before sealing with some light oils and lotion. I can’t wait to try it in other ways! Have you ever used witch hazel? How has it worked for you?© Copyright 2016 Tunrie, All rights Reserved. Written For: Get your Sizzelle on!
