Suggested: What is Witch Hazel
Aloe vera is a great skincare ingredient because it contains anti-inflammatory properties that help skin manage inflammatory problems such as eczema, acne, or psoriasis. Aloe is also packed full of antioxidants that help the skin stay firm and moisturized. Aloe helps to decrease redness and inflammation while increasing collagen to generate the growth of new cells. It’s full of moisture that allows for the skin to be hydrated without clogging pores or becoming greasy. It is great for any skin type that wants to add moisture while soothing the skin.
Alcohol free toner is the way to go for almost any skin type, but especially sensitive and combination skin. It gently calms the skin down, working with the other ingredients, to target age spots, acne, oil, and sensitive areas. Alcohol free is softer on the skin and can be used at any time throughout the day.
Rose is full of natural oils that help restore the skin and make it as smooth as possible. The natural sugars in the petals help to soothe sensitive skin. Our rose toner hydrates the skin and has a natural astringent in the petals that tightens pores, leaving the moisture in, and free radicals out. It’s also full of Vitamin C, which is crucial for collagen production and strengthening skin cells. Together they enable scars to heal faster and for skin to look it’s very best.
Lavender is an agent used to reduce redness and irritation. Lavender is full of anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that help manage acne and calm sensitive skin. Not only does lavender help calm the skin from the outside-in, the smell can physically calm you as well. It is extremely gentle and perfect to use on all skin types, especially those that are sensitive or acne prone.
Cucumber is 95% water, so it is great to gently cool and refresh your skin. Full of cooling properties, cucumbers are able to reduce puffiness and rejuvenate the skin. Antioxidants in the cucumber allow skin to reduce water retention and diminish clogged pores. Vitamin B-5 in cucumbers also help to retain moisture in the skin, allowing for your skin to feel fresh all day. Cucumber is great for dry skin because it adds extra moisture.
Alcohol in astringents are best for oily skin. It is great for oily, acne-prone skin because it keeps skin balanced and strips away excess grease. The alcohol is more heavy duty and is best used for those that need a stronger product.
Lemons are known for their brightening components. Being rich in vitamin C and citric acid, lemons are able to lighten age spots, freckles, and acne scars by boosting collagen production. They are acidic and contain high amounts of anti bacterial anti fungal properties, reducing bacteria, and excessive natural oils on the skin. Lemon is great for oily or acne prone skin that needs a little extra attention.
Peaches are great for dry skin because they help to regenerate skin tissue. They also are full of proteins, allowing for your skin to speed up repair. Folates in peaches replenish the top layer of skin and work with lutein that promotes skin elasticity. Vitamin E is plentiful in peaches and is one of the main ingredients that strengthens the skin and gives a natural glow. Peaches are great for any skin type that wants to be softer and smoother.
Medicated witch hazel is perfect for pain relief. The tannins in the witch hazel constrict blood vessels which helps with swelling, and it is great to speed up the recovery process of your skin. Minor cuts and bumps can heal faster with witch hazel and camphor, both of which are present in the medicated witch hazel. Peppermint oil has cooling properties that can help reduce swelling, relieve pain, and eliminate inflammation.
