Here are 8 plants that are great for your skin and are easy to make. Try them out at least twice a week and thank us later for that glowing skin!

1. Chamomile Tea: Chamomile’s anti-inflammatory properties make it an ideal element to calm and soothe irritated skin. And it can help alleviate redness and irritated patches too. But did you know that this beverage, when applied topically can also improve your skin? Yes, chamomile tea is especially beneficial to those who have sensitive skin.
  How to use it?
  • Brew some chamomile tea. Let it cool.
  • Wash your entire body with it.
  • Seriously, though, a DIY facial treatment can fight fine lines and wrinkles, and using chamomile as a rinse can help protect color-treated hair while also conditioning your strands.
  • Opt for the tried-and-true method of using tea bags on your eyes to fight puffiness and dark circles.

2. Peppermint Oil: A great natural cure for acne, mint is a pimple-fighter thanks to its salicylic acid (which also helps with excessive oil). It's also anti-pruritic, meaning mint juice can soothe and calm itchy, infected skin. With our DIY face mask made with peppermint oil you can save yourself a trip to the beauty salon. The natural green face mask is invigoratingly good for your skin and has a pleasantly refreshing smell - but careful, you can't eat the face mask.

    • First mix the yogurt and peppermint oil together well.
    • Add the clay and mix well again until an even, spreadable mixture is formed.
    • Apply the green mask to your face with a paintbrush and leave to work for around 15 minutes.
    • Once the peppermint mask has dried properly, wash off with warm water.
    • To restore enough moisture, massage moisturizer into the skin.
