Move Over, Green Tea – Chamomile Is The New Tea Your Skin Needs

Before we tuck into a good night’s sleep, we’d normally brew a hot, steaming cup of calming chamomile tea to help us sleep better.

The herbal remedy has been used for decades to relieve stress, and ease nausea.

Besides being the go-to ingredient for all things calming, chamomile also has some skincare benefits that can calm, heal and soothe your skin. So move over green tea. Chamomile is the new ingredient in skincare we all need, and here are some of its benefits. FYI, we may earn an affiliate commission if you purchase something through our product recommendations.

1. Soothe the skin

As much as it soothes your nerves before bedtime, chamomile is known to soothe your skin. The plant reduces redness and helps your blemishes to fade away. Try Mamonde Chamomile Pure Toner for your nighttime skincare routine.

2. Alleviate skin irritation

If you have issues with irritated skin like eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea, chamomile tea has antiseptic and antioxidant properties may help alleviate those issues. It even calms your skin if you get sunburned, as aloe vera does. We’d recommend Pezri Golden Chamomile Soothing Mask to help with your skin issues.

3. Helps to fade dark circles

If you’ve got those great Prada eyebags, chamomile tea may be good for you. Like green tea bags, you can recycle your chamomile tea bags and put them in the fridge to chill, before placing them onto your eyes to get rid of dark circles and reduce puffiness around the eye area.

4. Anti-ageing properties

Chamomile plant extract contains phytochemicals that speed up cell regeneration, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and fine lines – basically whatever that comes with ageing gracefully. It will also slow down the signs of ageing so hopefully, you’ll be looking 35 at the age of 50. Try Nacific Fresh Herb Origin Cream which is infused with the goodness of chamomile to improve skin elasticity.
