Chamomile Tea to the Rescue!
Your next best solution for your skin woes.
We’ve long been drinking chamomile tea to ease us into relaxation, but did you know that this flower-based tea is also good for your skin? Chamomile contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties which boost your skin health which even the Ancient Egyptians swore by. It’s believed that they used chamomile as an early cosmetic remedy to target problems such as acne and lackluster skin.
When used topically, chamomile tea has the power to fight breakouts and get rid of acne scars. In fact, many have started using chamomile tea as facial cleanser, face toner and herbal ice compress to reduce skin inflammation. It provides gentle, deep cleansing action that leaves your skin feeling refreshed and polished.
To properly use chamomile tea as a skin saver, dip a cotton pad on pre-chilled chamomile tea, then apply the pad on your face. You can also put the chilled tea bag on areas affected with acne and skin redness, then let it rest on your face for a few minutes. Don’t worry about the overdrying effects of the tea—chamomile has moisturizing ingredients that’ll keep skin comfortably hydrated.

Studies have also shown that topical applications of chamomile can be effective in managing atopic eczema.
