In fact, chamomile tea was also historically used by Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans to treat wounds and promote healing. Just as chamomile helps calm the mind and body, it has similar effects on the skin.
Chamomile is an herb that has been used for thousands of years to promote sleep, relieve stress, and alleviate stomach ailments, however it is also incredible for soothing reactive skin.
But the soothing plant has powers beyond improving our insides.
If you pay attention to ingredient lists on beauty products, you've probably noticed chamomile cropping up in a number of skincare products formulated to calm, heal, and soothe skin—and for good reason.

Benefits of Chamomile for Skin
Chamomile reduces any redness in the skin because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Redness is a side-effect of underlying inflammation. If an ingredient is anti-inflammatory, the skin is soothed, less red, and less irritated.
Soothes sensitive skin
There is basic science research showing that chamomile helps block signals in the body known as prostaglandins, which are responsible for inflammation. This makes chamomile a great ingredient for people who have sensitive skin, as well as inflammatory conditions like rosacea.
Because chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties, it helps to protect against long-term and short-term skin inflammation. Specifically, in the case of sunburns, it helps reduce DNA damage caused by too much UV exposure. This is why a cold compress of brewed chamomile tea placed on the sunburn can aid in a quicker recovery.
Decreases signs of ageing
Chamomile has long been used for medicinal purposes thanks to its abundance of flavonoids and phytochemicals. These nutrients are known to fight against harmful free radicals and speed up cell regeneration, thereby improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.
Although on its own it has a strong scent, when added in skincare its calming and soothing effects on the skin are incredible.
