In the skincare world, Witch Hazel has been catapulted as a supreme, multifunctional ingredient, especially when it comes to toners. Although Witch Hazel has been used as an effective and healing ingredient in many skincare products for decades, recently there have been a lot of misconceptions surrounding this flowering shrub. Due to all of this conflicting information, many people are left wondering if witch hazel is bad for their skin and if it has any negative side effects when added to their skincare routine.
Today, we are playing mythbusters to separate the myths from the truth, and give insight to how Thayers Witch Hazel is not only safe, but very effective, too. Remember, not all witch hazel is created the same, and Thayers unique extraction technique allows us to create an alcohol free witch hazel that offers benefits to every skin type.
Facial toners are an essential step in your skincare routine as they help cleanse and prep the skin so your serums and moisturizers can penetrate the epidermis properly. Toning serves to remove any leftover debris clinging to your pores from dirt, makeup and oil so your skin is a clean slate. It also corrects any pH imbalances in the skin, which is vital to the health of the acid mantle – whose job is to repel and protect skin from environmental stressors.
Witch Hazel offers multifunctional benefits that fit well in the role of toning the skin. It offers the ability to balance oil production without being harsh enough to strip the skin of its natural oils, remove impurities from the skin and balance the pH level of skin.
While many believe toning is a luxury and not necessary as part of a regular skincare routine, a good quality witch hazel toner can visibly improve the appearance of skin and protect the skin from external damage.
