Witch hazel is the best toner ever. Not just for oily skin, but for all skin types. This natural astringent helps remove excess oil from the face without drying out the skin and is a refreshing second step after using my D.I.Y. facial cleanser. Witch hazel also helps with preventing blemishes while healing existing pimples and scars.
I've used other toners and astringents before, usually those part of a skincare system, and always left my face feeling right and very shiny in appearance. Witch hazel leaves my skin baby soft and allows for my moisturizer to absorb effortlessly into my skin.
What's your favorite toner/astringent? Do you prefer to skip this step or is it a must in your skincare routine?
