Because of chamomile's numerous healing properties, any skin type—oily, normal, dry, or sensitive—can benefit from a dose of the flower. "Chamomile is a wound healer, and it helps to block out irritants by eliminating free radicals on your skin," says MaryAnna Nardone, a paramedical aesthetician and creator of the NY Skin Goddess brand. "It is anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antibacterial, antiseptic, and acts as an antioxidant—so it's perfect for sensitive, normal, and acne-prone complexions." That means chamomile can help treat dry patches, irritation, hyperpigmentation, and annoying blemishes.
