How to use Witch Hazel depending on your skin type?

Thanks to its astringent, purifying, and soothing properties, witch hazel hydrosol helps care for oily, blemished, and redness-prone skin. Witch hazel purifies the skin, tightens the pores, and evens out the complexion. How should witch hazel be used depending on your skin type? We provide all the explanations on this subject.

What is witch hazel?

Witch hazel is a shrub native to North America, belonging to the Hamamelidaceae family. The flowers of the witch hazel are characterized by their 4 bright yellow ribbon-shaped petals. It is the leaves of the shrub that are harvested before they turn brown to be used in various skincare treatments.

Witch hazel is incorporated into skincare due to its purifying, astringent, and soothing properties. Witch hazel hydrosol is suitable for all skin types, particularly combination to oily skin, acne-prone skin, and skin prone to irritation and redness. Witch hazel hydrosol is obtained by distilling witch hazel leaves. This process allows the properties of the plant to be transferred into the steam. The hydrosol is less concentrated in active ingredients than the essential oil, but it allows for the full benefits of the used plant to be obtained.

Witch hazel hydrosol for oily skin.

Oily skin is characterized by an overproduction of sebum, which is responsible for the skin's shiny appearance throughout the day and the formation of blemishes. Indeed, sebum and impurities clog the pores, promoting the appearance of comedones. Oily skin is also characterized by enlarged pores. Thanks to its astringent properties, witch hazel hydrosol is a great ally for oily and blemished skin. It purifies the skin and tightens the pores for an even complexion. Thanks to the astringent action of witch hazel, the pores become less visible.

The witch hazel hydrosol for skin prone to irritation and redness.

There are numerous factors that cause skin irritations and redness, such as exposure to the sun, pollution, or cold weather. However, it's important to note that the skin becomes more sensitive if there's a disruption in the natural protective barrier. In such cases, it's crucial to protect the skin against external aggressions by adopting the right skincare regimen.

Thanks to its soothing properties, witch hazel hydrosol is recommended for caring for skin prone to irritations and redness. It calms redness and reduces irritations. It is also used to alleviate sunburns.

Our witch hazel hydrosol contains 99.4% naturally derived ingredients. Furthermore, the witch hazel used in its production comes from organic farming. Store the hydrosol away from light and heat. Immediately replace the lid after each use.

To reap the benefits of witch hazel hydrosol, thoroughly cleanse your entire face. Apply the hydrosol using a cotton pad once your skin is clean and dry. Use witch hazel hydrosol before your serum or face cream. This treatment is suitable for all skin types, but is recommended for calming redness and irritation in sensitive skin, or for tightening pores and purifying oily skin.
