Is Witch Hazel Good for Breakouts?

Teen acne is a common struggle, but that doesn’t lessen its effects! In your search for the best natural approach, you’ve likely stumbled upon information proclaiming that witch hazel is good for breakouts. The Prep U Blem Pen harnesses the power of witch hazel in a formulation with other natural ingredients.

The Blem Pen is a roll-on toner that offers a variety of benefits as an astringent, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and hydrating agent. Each of these qualities can play a role in healing and reducing acne. The gentle, but effective, formula is appropriate for use on sensitive skin and is dermatologist approved, as is the entire Prep U product line.

Prep U operates out of Austin, TX, producing all-natural personal care products by the batch. The products we create are meant for pre-teen boys and adolescent males as they establish a lifetime regimen of hygiene and self-care.

The Allure of Witch Hazel

Witch hazel has a long-term reputation as an effective skin toner. It cleanses and soothes due to its astringent, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-microbial qualities. Witch hazel extract comes from a plant that grows in North America and Japan and has been used for centuries as a treatment for skin inflammation and irritation.

For acne treatment, witch hazel is a proven remover of excess oil, which commonly causes clogged pores and blemishes. It also works to minimize pores and calm redness, creating a refreshed complexion.

The Prep U Blem Pen uses no artificial ingredients or chemicals. As a mom, when you give your son a Blem Pen, you don’t have to worry that you’re exposing him to anything potentially dangerous.
