Use it as and astringent

Using witch hazel for beauty care may be something new to you but it is as effective as all others solutions you have been using so far.

Witch hazel can also be used to treat marks on the face or other areas of skin. Applying witch hazel extracts on the skin reduces the discoloration caused by bruises and marks. It can reduce irritation and acne or other inflammatory skin conditions.

Another effective witch hazel usage includes improving the appearance of the skin around the eyes. Witch hazel extracts can easily treat discoloration, dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles from under and around the eyes.

Witch hazel extracts make effective post shave remedy. Applying its extracts after shaving or hair-removal can stop bleeding from cuts and provide quick relief from razor burn.
