Yarrow is a natural astringent that works by making use of its tannin content. It binds with skin proteins and tightens the matrix, making it look firm in the process. This helps in reducing the production of excess oil, pore appearance, and acne breakouts. Additionally, its anti-inflammatory content, such as sesquiterpene lactones and flavonoids, helps with inflammation and irritation.
Make Yarrow tea and apply some of it to the cotton and dab it on your skin for gentle and effective treatment.
