One of the BEST astringents is Witch Hazel. When applied directly to the skin, witch hazel might help reduce swelling, help repair broken skin, and fight bacteria.
I have used Witch Hazel for years as an astringent. It’s gentle to the skin, not made with any animal products, not tested on animals and cleanses skin without drying.
It’s inexpensive and lasts. Thayer’s brand also comes scents of Lavender, Cucumber, Rose Petal and Lemon. I have found it also great for razor burn. Give it a try!
