      Star Witch Hazel Skin Clarifier

      3/4 cup witch hazel
      1/4 cup rubbing alcohol

      Mix the ingredients and store in a tightly capped, sterilized glass bottle.

      To use, moisten a clean cotton ball and clean your face with this solution after washing and before applying moisturizer. Your skin should feel tingly while using this clarifier.

      Great for oily skin. I use plain Witch Hazel after I remove my makeup, and before I moisturize. I am 53, and have great skin. Also do steam, and lemon---pot of boiling water, lemon juice....towel over head, remember to breathe.....5 minutes. Splash face with cool water, and moisturize.

      I use witch hazel and love it.
      It doesn't irritate my skin, but alcohol based products can and usually do.
      While the idea of alcohol and witch hazel mixed is probably a really good one, especially for people with either normal or oily skin, for those of use with sensitive skin-not so much.

      I use witch hazel a lot, for everything from brush burns (scrapes) to rashes, to cat scratchs, to problems in unmetionable areas <blushing> Its my go to disinfectant/heal-all. purrrrrrrr-fect example, I have a rough neck cat that love to rough-house, and winds up ripping me up pretty good, but using witch hazel daily, the scratches are usually gone in a matter of a couple days (or at least to the point of being unnoticable)

      I'll give that a try. Or rather, I'll have my stepdaughter try it. She has really oily skin and we've tried everything. The only things that really work are really harsh on the skin, at least for a 12 year old.

      I wouldn't let my young daughter use harsh treatments or products. They can really aggravate skin. Plus, who knows what the longer effects will be.
      The most important thing is for her to keep her skin clean. Then use a toner/freshner. Witch hazel is a great one. It doesn't strip all the moisture from your skin.
      LOVE that stuff.

      MrsPaws, that is why I am wanting to try it with her. I don't like the smell of the chemicals and if it smells harsh, you know its harsh on the skin.
