Chamomile is one of mankind’s most ancient medicinal herbs, used to treat various health problems like insomnia, anxiety, cold, sore throat, and many more. But chamomile does more than just heal the body, it works wonders for your skin too! From psoriasis to eczema and even your pesky pimples, chamomile has got you covered.
Here are three key reasons why chamomile is beneficial to your skin and how to incorporate it into your routine for better skin.
Help reduce inflammation
Whether it be inflammation caused by acne or general swelling, topical application of chamomile is proven to reduce inflammation, soother, and calm skin without irritation. Known as herbal aspirin, chamomile locks the release of the chemical that promotes inflammation within the body.
Fights radical damage
The reason why chamomile is so popular is that it’s packed with powerful disease-fighting antioxidants, such as terpenoids and flavonoids. These anti-oxidants are key fighters of radical damage that is often caused by prolonged exposures to the sun.
Perfect for healing
Due to the anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant effects of chamomile, it’s perfect for healing acne wounds and sunburns. Try a chamomile bath/soak to soothe the skin and reduce the spread of bacteria
