Witch Hazel Extract - Skin Benefits
Witch hazel leaf extract, bark extract, and witch hazel water are used as astringents which can tighten the skin. The tannins (a class of astringent molecules) are thought to be effective when applied directly to the skin to reduce swelling, help repair broken skin, and fight bacteria. It removes the stuff you don’t want, like excess oil and impurities, and then nourishes the skin with healthy moisturizing properties that prevent the skin from drying out. Although witch hazel does remove oils from your skin, it won’t dry it out like most store-bought astringents. Witch hazel is also known to tighten skin, which helps reduce under eye baggage and puffiness.
