Ever had chamomile tea? At the very least, you’ve probably seen it on the menu of your favorite cafe. Due to its special curative and antioxidant properties, it has gained popularity through the years. The dried flowers of chamomile contain an abundant number of terpenoids and flavonoids which contributes to its medicinal properties. It has been consumed for centuries as a natural medicine for several health conditions.
But how can it help your skin?
Chamomile has been used by the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks to calm anxiety, settle stomach issues, treat wounds and speed up the healing process - and for good reason, mainly because the plant possesses antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. If these successful ancient civilizations used it, I don’t see a reason why we shouldn’t.
Chamomile flowers possess essential oils and flavonoids, which act as antioxidants to help protect against the free radicals that have negative effects on your skin. As an ingredient, chamomile is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic.
Some of the antioxidants also boost your skin health, brighten your complexion, and can give you the glow you've always desired. Here are some of the known effects:
Acne scar removal
Chamomile could help end your battle with frequent acne breakouts too! When used topically, it helps diminish spots, removes visible acne scars and fights breakouts, due to its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.
Healthy, younger skin
As previously mentioned, chamomile is a powerhouse of antioxidants and shields the skin from free radical damage. It speeds up cell and tissue regeneration, tightens the pores, and decelerates the ageing process.
Protection from the sun
Sun exposure, while inevitable, causes UV (ultraviolet) rays to damage your skin and can cause a number of issues. Chamomile can help reduce the harmful effects of continuous sun exposure, due to its antioxidant, soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.
Soothes skin irritation
Chamomile also has the ability to neutralize skin irritants. It helps remove and prevent dandruff, soothe scalp irritation and improve the health of your skin. Research also suggest that it can heal various skin conditions including psoriasis and eczema.
