Surprising Beauty Benefits of Witch Hazel

Witch hazel probably isn’t something you think about on a regular basis, but it should be. This old-school bathroom staple has some serious power when it comes to making your life simpler, more gorgeous, and much more picture-perfect. Before you spend a lot of money on summer beauty staples that will have you looking good, but have your bank account feeling bad, buy some witch hazel and get started making yourself gorgeous.

Second Day Hair

Most women love their hair the day after washing it, but those who have a tendency to go a little greasy aren’t so in love with this look. Witch hazel is great for second day hair because it gets rid of greasiness and makes your hair look gorgeous. All you have to do is dab a little witch hazel along your hairline and blow-dry it for a few seconds for roots that aren’t at all greasy.

T-Zone

Nothing makes you feel as annoyed as checking out a photo of yourself and realizing your T-Zone is as shiny as the top of the Empire State Building. Before your next outing, dab a little witch hazel on this area to absorb excess oils and prevent shininess from occurring in inconvenient locations.

All Day Makeup

Nothing is worse than spending forever applying your makeup only so it wears off as the day progresses. Put a little witch hazel into a spray bottle and use it to set your makeup before you head out for a day of fun and adventure.

Goodbye Puffy Eyes

No sleep last night? Nobody has to know. By rubbing witch hazel beneath your eyes (be careful not to get it in your eyes) you can eliminate under eye puffiness and make your face look fresh, wide awake, and gorgeous in a matter of seconds.
