I had mild acne so I decided to visit a dermatologist. There she told me that I also had broken capillaries which were cause by the acrylic acid in most of acne treatments. This irritated my skin and dried it up. She told me that I could buy witch hazel in any pharmacy. So I decided to give a try. I bought and at night I used it. All I needed to do is moisten a cotton ball and gently wipe my skin. It was great I felt clean and my skin did not dry up! It was also faster than having to wash my face every morning which also feels very cold after you finished washing. Than I had to wait a while after it was dry. That took a lot of time during my morning routine which cause for me to wake up early that I really don't enjoy and sometime miss the bus to school. After a week of using it I had really no acne because it killed all the acne causing bacteria. I threw away all other acne medications which I will never use ever again. It actually worsens the acne at times. Witch Hazel never does any damage to your skin.
