Take Tips On This Toner
When red bumps, rashes, and irritation make their mark on your face (whether it's weather, hormonal, or environmentally-related), it's never a fun game to figure out the cure. Trips to the dermatologist and expensive prescriptions are not always the only answers — we've learned firsthand that a little research can go a long way when it comes to conquering skin woes naturally.
This is exactly how we found our new go-to toner: Witch Hazel.
Why does it work? Witch hazel is an extract from the leaves and bark of the Hamamelis virginiana shrub, which has a long history when it comes to skin care. Witch hazel is naturally anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, which is why it can reduce the appearance of acne, redness and skin irritation. As a toner it also helps lock in moisture — a remedy for oily and dry skin — and is high in tannins, which reduce the appearance of fine lines.
We suggest applying it with an organic cotton pad after cleansing and follow it up with your facial oil/moisturizer.
Our favorite brand, Humphreys alcohol free formula, combines witch hazel distillate with lilac, aloe, and hyaluronic acid to cleanse and moisturize, while extracts of papaya and pineapple leave your skin soft and smooth.
