Witch Hazel for Scars

I just bought some witch hazel today for my acne scars. Some people say it visibly fades red and brown acne marks within a week! Has anyones used witch hazel for scars? Tell me your experiences!

Re: Witch Hazel for Scars

i've actually started using witch hazel a couple days ago. i had some leftover from one of my piercings, so i thought "if it heals piercings, it should heal some kind of acne too". i've been putting on the cystic kind, and i think it makes them die down. i'd like to hear more info on this as well though...

Re: Witch Hazel for Scars

You can get Witch Hazel from your local grocery store or pharmacy. It is a very mild astringent. I have been using Witch Hazel for a couple of weeks now and I have to say it really does help to fade dark marks and my complexion also looks more even. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">
