Witch Hazel: Nature's ALL-Purpose Skin Purifier

I recently discovered the major benefits of Witch Hazel while on a quest for a new facial toner.  As a person with combination oily and dry skin, finding a toner that removes oil while not drying out my skin has been a challenge.  The majority of drug store toners contain chemicals and alcohol which can strip the skin rather than tone it, but witch hazel is different!

Witch Hazel is an all-natural astringent that is derived from a flowering shrub located in North America, Japan and China.  For centuries, people across the globe have been using the extract from the bark and leaves to clean and calm a multitude of skin issues including cuts, bruises, swelling and bug bites.  Since witch hazel is high in 'Tannins,' otherwise known as 'Tannic Acid,' it naturally causes swollen blood vessels to contract and shrink.

Here are just a few examples of how you can implement Witch Hazel into your services:

  1. Facial toner for all skin types, including normal, oily, dry, combination and acneic skin.
  2. Topical treatment of acneic and blemished skin.
  3. Pre-depilatory cleanser.
  4. Post-depilatory skin soother and cleanser.
  5. Varicose vein treatment.
  6. Aftershave treatment for men.

**Insiders Tip**  The most beneficial witch hazel is the type that is non-distilled AND alcohol-free.  My favorite line is by Humphreys Pharmacal Inc - Check out the Cucumber & Melon Redness-Diffusing Witch Hazel Astringent.
