Controls oil, eliminates shine and balances skin.
Oily skin occurs when overactive sebaceous glands produce more oil than needed making the skin look shiny, greasy or even dirty. Oily skin often has large pores that easily become clogged causing pimples, blackheads and other blemishes. Many people have combination skin. They have oily skin in certain areas and normal or dry in others. Witch Hazel can be used with a moisturizer for oily skin.
Use Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel to remove the excess oil and lift trapped dirt and makeup residue from your pores without dehydrating your skin. Many products that claim to be a moisturizer for oily skin contain unnatural ingredients that strip your skin of too much oil and cause a reaction known as reactive seborrhea, where the glands overcompensate and produce even more oil.
