Chamomile makes a wonderful tea. It helps calm and soothes facial complexions by helping the skin retain moisture. Not to mention helps our bodies relax and decompress stress. For super shiny, silky hair, use it as a rinse. These days, when we think of chamomile, we believe about tea. Chamomile tea is used the world over to calm anxiety and soothe a worried mind. Luckily, it has these same effects when applied to the skin. Another common use for chamomile is in lotions and creams designed to alleviate dry and itchy skin, and especially for relief of sensitive, irritated skin. Chamomile has antibacterial properties, as well, so it helps to unclog pores and prevent blemishes from occurring. chamomile used in eye creams

As an antioxidant, it fights the effects of sun damage and environmental pollutants. Because it is a natural moisturizer, chamomile delivers antioxidants deep into the skin, where they can help neutralize damage caused by free radicals. It also helps skin regulate its natural moisture processes, which means that the skin will hold moisture better, and produce less of its moisture, which also contributes to preventing pimples. When used in a scrub, it can both get rid of dead skin cells, while encouraging new skin cells to grow, all as it hydrates and soothes the skin. Just as it nourishes the skin externally, most people believe that drinking chamomile tea will help moisturize the skin from within.

Chamomile is often added to eye creams, as it has natural circulation boosters, which can help diminish the look of under-eye circles. Dark circles are created under the eyes when capillaries break and deposit blood particles under the eye. Increased circulation can help to wipe away the look of these circles, by purifying the skin and carrying away these blood particles.

Because of its natural purifying abilities, it can even help reduce the look of discoloration on the skin, which is often caused by too much sun exposure. When applied, over time, it can lighten these patches, by breaking up the impurities in the skin. It can also lighten hair over time when used as a rinse on a regular basis. Because it moisturizes and soothes skin, it can alleviate a dry scalp, which results in dandruff and brittle, straw-like hair.

Chamomile in creams and lotions and even makeup is for its ability to reduce inflammation and irritation. It is great for rashes, burns, bug bites, and even poison ivy and oak. When mixed into a bath, it can easily moisturize the entire body, soothing any areas of irritation. When using chamomile for the first time, test a small patch on the inside of your elbow before using elsewhere. Some people are allergic to chamomile as it is part of the ragweed family.
