Chamomile tea is known for its soothing properties and its ability to help relax the body. It is also recommended to help reduce anxiety too. When it comes to skincare, looking for products that contain chamomile extracts can also bring about a myriad of benefits!
1. Reduces appearance of hyperpigmentation and scars
Chamomile contains high amounts of a component known as a-bisabolol which helps in treatment of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots. These scars and darkening spots may be caused by melanin production, which is stimulated when our skin is irritated. A-bisabolol in chamomile can help with inhibiting this production of melanin, which gets rid of stubborn scars and dark spots.
2. Relieves eczema
Chamomile extracts have potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which greatly helps relieve skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea.. It can help to soothe and calm angry flare ups, making it a perfect buddy when you are experiencing skin inflammation.
3. Enhances absorption of skincare products
Presence of chamomile extracts can also help increase the take up and absorption of skincare products to follow in your routine. This ensures that your skin is getting all the nutrients and goodies that it needs from your skincare by penetrating through the numerous layers of your skin, and not just leaving it on the surface, also known as the epidermis.
Apart from the above, chamomile is also hydrating and can help moisturise the skin. Chamomile extracts have the ability to bond moisture to help supply hydration and relieve dry patches and itchiness as a result of scaly skin. It can also help soften your skin and make it more supple!
