Home Remedies for Sun Burn

Witch Hazel is a beneficial part of natural skin care.   Witch Hazel comes for the witch hazel tree, and contains numerous benefits in natural skin care.   Witch hazel can be used on insect bites, sunburns other burn as well as cuts and scrapes.  It stops the bleeding and help ease the pain. 

Witch hazel is a natural astringent which helps to reduce skin irritation and prevent infections.  The tannin content in witch hazel has a strong astringent property as well as antioxidant properties.  It is gentle and non-drying and great to use on acne-prone skin.

Witch hazel has disinfecting properties, thus reducing bacteria.  It reduces irritation on the skin and causes a “numbing” effect when applied.   The tannins in witch hazel also tighten pores and swollen veins , and reduce inflammation and dryness.

Witch hazel is also great as a make-up remover.

Witch hazel also soothes psoriasis and eczema.

Take plain witch hazel straight from the bottle and apply twice a day (no more than that) to acne prone areas with a cotton ball.   Never take witch hazel orally !!
