Witch hazel may sound like a tonic straight out of your great grandfather’s medicine cabinet, but it is actually a potent astringent used in modern day beauty products. Its use dates back hundreds of years; in fact, Native North Americans taught the Puritans how to extract the plant derived remedy. Today, witch hazel is used for treating skin disorders like acne, psoriasis, insect bites, and poison ivy because of its naturally astringent and anti-inflammatory benefits. Found in everything from body lotion to eye cream, witch hazel is best for oily, combination, or problematic and temperamental skin.
