Talk about witch hazel.
Oh I am looking to fade my redmarks and dry up a couple of minor pimples. Will this help? THanks
I decided to try the witch hazel route a couple of month's ago and it really messed my skin up, I bought a tea tree and witch hazel cleanser which really removed the grime from my face but it was too astringent and my face became extremley oily and i started to break out much worse, This was probably due to the fact that i used a product containing witch hazel and not 100% witch hazel the product i used also contained some alcohol which is a definite no no as far as oily skin is concerned.
If you decide to go ahead try and find 100 % witch hazel and see how you get on after a couple of day's, some people swear by it but for me it just made matters worse.
I think it does help if you use it as a compress when you have a red and inflamed spot, just soak a cottonball in the stuff and pat it against the blemish for around 10 minutes.
