Ingredient of the Month - Chamomile
What is Chamomile?
The chamomile flower native to Asia, Europe, Australia, and North America is an age-old remedy used by Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks to treat many conditions and illnesses. Chamomile's popularity grew throughout the Middle Ages when people turned to it as a treatment for numerous complaints. The plant's many benefits come from its daisy-like flowers, which contain Azulene and Bisabolol Oils that contribute to its ability to soothe and calm everything from upset stomachs and unsettled nerves to fragile skin.
How does my skin benefit from Chamomile?
Chamomile is one ingredient you want in your skincare routine. Whether you have acne prone skin, dry skin, or pigmentation areas. It has a little to help every type of skin type:
Decongesting: Chamomile has antiseptic and strong anti-inflammatory abilities that help to decongest clogged pores, making chamomile one of the best herbal extracts for sensitive and acne prone skin types who have inflammation.
Anti-Ageing: Chamomile is also rich in flavonoids and antioxidants which are effective in protecting the skin against free radicals which damage your skin and accelerate the ageing process.
Brightening: Chamomile is a natural skin lightener, promotes a healthy glow of the skin as it heals and restores its natural moisture content. Another lesser known fact about chamomile is that it’s also an all-natural bleaching agent and can help to naturally even your complexion.
Healing: The antioxidants in chamomile make it an incredibly healing ingredient, to help reduce acne inflammation, breakouts, minor scars, skin wounds and burns.
Soothing: Chamomile is calming and soothing and can help address rosacea, eczema, rashes and sometimes even insect bites.
