Why We Love It
1. Refreshes as it keeps odor-causing bacteria away.
Witch hazel can be beneficial in reducing body odor by decreasing the survival of odor-causing bacteria on the skin through its ability to lower the skin's pH level. By incorporating witch hazel into your skincare routine, you can help neutralize body odor and maintain a fresh feeling. It's a great addition to your shower essentials.
2. Absorbs excess oil without stripping.
The natural astringency of witch hazel, attributed to its high tannin content (similar to that found in grapes), can provide a multitude of benefits for the skin. Witch hazel's astringent properties can help to minimize the appearance of pores, firm up the skin's surface, and most notably, absorb excess oil. This makes it a powerful tool in combating body blemishes and breakouts. By incorporating witch hazel into your skincare routine, you can achieve clearer and smoother skin.
3. Soothes redness and irritation.
One of the key components of witch hazel is gallic acid, a potent antioxidant with impressive anti-inflammatory properties. These properties make it an effective solution for alleviating itchiness, reducing redness, and soothing sunburned or bug-bitten skin. By incorporating witch hazel into your skincare regimen, you can take advantage of its natural healing properties to achieve a calm and comfortable complexion.
4. It has antibacterial properties.
Witch hazel's broad-spectrum anti-inflammatory properties also make it a valuable antibacterial agent for minor cuts and scrapes. Research has indicated that witch hazel exhibits potent antimicrobial activity against various types of bacteria, making it an effective natural remedy for wounds. By using witch hazel as a topical treatment for minor skin injuries, you can take advantage of its antibacterial properties and support the natural healing process.
5. Calms razor burn and razor bumps.
Witch hazel can effectively alleviate the discomfort associated with razor burn and razor bumps. Its anti-inflammatory and astringent properties help to reduce inflammation, redness, and itching, making it a natural solution for post-shaving irritation. In addition, witch hazel's ability to prevent ingrown hairs can result in smoother, healthier-looking skin. By incorporating witch hazel into your shaving routine, you can benefit from its soothing and healing properties, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and revitalized.
