  • Besides being the active ingredient in Preparation H... it is a natural astringent and antiseptic. I use it as a toner and I use it mixed with some glycerin under my eyes to reduce the puffiness.

  • Stick it in the fridge and use it with cold compresses. It takes the tenderness away, and takes the coloring out of bruises.
