Witch Hazel for Skin Tightening

Does witch hazel tighten skin? Yes!

Adding witch hazel to your daily beauty routine will help you tighten loose skin and also sagging skin on your face and anywhere you use witch hazel.

Keep reading to learn how I apply witch hazel to my face for skin tightening and anti aging.

It’s true, witch hazel is an astringent that can effectively give you tighter skin.

I always have a large bottle of witch hazel in my medicine cabinet for many wonderful uses, especially for beauty and skin care. I have been using witch hazel for 4 years to keep my skin looking amazing.


It wasn’t until a couple days after I first started using with hazel that I noticed my skin was looking tighter and more “awake.”

Witch hazel is an easy remedy to help immediately sooth your skin and make it look healthier and rejuvenated.

At least one day out of my work week it seems I wake up looking tired, my eyes will look sleepy and the skin under my eyes will either have little bags or sagging skin. My face would look droopy too. I needed to perk up and tighten my skin fast. Witch hazel tightens my skin like nothing else I have ever tried. For my husband to notice my skin looking improved, that’s a remarkable testimonial. He even wanted to try some witch hazel on his face.

If you have loose skin or even sagging mature skin, give witch hazel a try!

Ok, let’s get to all the benefits witch hazel has besides just skin tightening.

How I apply With Hazel to my face for Tighter Skin

  1. On a makeup-free cleansed face apply a saturated cotton pad to your face in upward strokes
  2. If you notice dirt and oil on the cotton pad, repeat with a clean cotton pad
  3. Allow your face to dry naturally for five minutes
  4. Your skin should feel refreshed and skin should start tightening and tingling
  5. Apply more witch hazel to the face/body/ affected areas and allow to dry
  6. (I like to repeat this step five times)
  7. You should notice tighter skin
  8. Next, seal in skin moisture –
  9. Apply organic cold pressed coconut oil to skin
  10. Apply reship seed oil to face, especially under eyes
  11. Bonus* For extreme saggy skin add this derma roller for saggy jowls

I especially love using witch hazel to tighten the skin on my face, but you can use it to tighten the skin on your body. It’s perfect for making into body wraps and helping with sagging skin as a result of weight loss. It’s also great for women to use witch hazel for a postpartum belly wrap.



The Brand of Witch Hazel I use:

Thayer’s Rose Petal Witch Hazel

This is my favorite witch hazel for skin tightening because it’s alcohol free and perfect for sensitive skin. It smells like a boquet of fresh red roses too. ?

    Hi there,

    Had weight loss surgery 01 2015 and lost 100 went from 300 to 200.
    Plus I am 61 years old and have a ton of loose skin…my breast are…like Whow!!!. Can I use WH all over my body???

  2. Hi
    Thanks for giving such details on this product. 🙂
    Been thinking to switch my toner, but my skin is very sensitive and super dry (most of the time). At its worst condition, it even hurts when i yawn. I think it’s because my face was stretched or something.
    Do you think that the skin thightening effect of this product will make my skin condition worse?

  3. Hi, will witch hazel help tighten my loose saggy skin on my stomach? If so when will I notice it? How often do I apply witch hazel to my stomach?

    1. Hi Cora, It may help. If it’s for your tummy area, a waist cincher that’s designed for post pardon or post lipo surgery can help tighten up the skin. Try searching amazon for a waist trainer after lipo.

  4. Hi! I’ve lost over 80 pounds and trying to make it to 100! I’m noticing the skin is starting to sage in my stomach/arms and was trying to get a jump start on tightening.

    Do you know how long until you see results roughly? And how often do you apply the WH?

    1. I know that witch hazel helps with skin tightening but not 100% sure how long it takes. Might vary depending how stretched the skin is.
