Chamomile tea is a popular drink known for its calming properties. This versatile herb is not just for making tea, it also has healing properties and natural skin care benefits. Chamomile is beneficial as a natural skin care treatment because of its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to promote cell regeneration. It is also helpful for problem skin affected by rashes, acne, eczema, psoriasis, scars, spider veins, age spots, discoloration and allergic conditions.

If you're looking to get the natural benefits available from chamomile you should consider creating your own natural skin care treatments at home. They will be less expensive than store bought products and will be completely natural with no irritating chemicals. If you prefer to purchase your products already made look for ones that contain mostly natural ingredients including chamomile.

Also, with the start of fall there is a need for a new natural skin care routine. During the fall season weather changes and the same skin care products you were using during warmer summer months may not be as effective in preventing dry skin and should be replaced. This fall switch to natural skin care products and try creating some of your own. With fall comes colder weather and the drying air of heaters. Don't let your skin pay the price. Prevent flaking by using a shielding lotion. A shielding lotion works to strengthen your skin's own natural barrier helping it to better maintain its own oils and moisture.
