Why witch hazel is essential in your skin care routine

If you are looking for a product that is natural, and gives you a lot of benefits for your money, witch hazel may be the one product you didn't know you couldn't afford not to have in your skin care routine.  There are several known benefits of witch hazel and some that are not as well know.  For example, you may already know that as an astringent, it helps to decrease inflammation and shrink pores.  But here is something you may not have known, witch hazel is a very important step in your skin care routine.  Right after you wash your face with a cleanser, your skin is not at the normal pH.  A toner is critical in helping return your skin's pH back to normal so that when you apply your  expensive skin care products, you actually absorb them and your skin reacts correctly to get the most out of them.  If you are applying skin care products without first using a toner, you have wasted your money on those creams and serums.  So, before you start,  grab your alcohol free witch hazel and a cotton pad and apply gently to your entire face.  This will help you get all the benefits of your skin care routine.  Besides this key feature, witch hazel is a natural, plant based liquid that is rich in polyphenols.  These polyphenols add a layer of protection that nourishes your cells and protects from sun damage.  That is why it is important to use in the morning and at night as a part of your skin care routine.  We will be adding more to the list of uses and benefits of witch hazel, but these are just the start of how witch hazel aids in anti aging properties for your skin.  It is essential for everyone who wants to preserve their skin and protect from daily damage.
