DIY Face Wash With Honey & Chamomile

black-girl-face-wash

When you hear the word “chamomile,” you immediately feel some sense of tranquility. It is a peaceful, relaxing herb that offers comfort and soothing, especially when you have a cold or sore throat. It’s incredibly versatile and has a variety of health benefits, but rarely do people use it for all that it has to offer. For instance, chamomile has the ability to reduce acne scars and provide relief from skin irritations. The antibacterial, antiseptic, and anti-fungal properties make it the perfect ingredient for maintaining healthy skin.

 

Benefits of Chamomile

Anti-Aging:

The antioxidants in chamomile help to brighten the complexion and give the skin a youthful glow, but they also work to protect the skin from free radical damage. Working to balance the skin’s pH level, chamomile helps to tighten pores, slow down the aging process, and accelerate cell and tissue regeneration.

 

Dark Circles Be Gone:

People who throw away used bags of chamomile tea have been throwing away natural remedies for dark circles under the eyes. After drinking a cup of chamomile tea, place the tea bags in the fridge to cool them. When your eyes are feeling heavy or drained, place the chilled chamomile bags on your eyes to reduce puffiness and dark circles.

 

Reduces Acne:

Are you at war with breakouts? Acne is typically related to impurities in the blood, so we suggest cleansing the blood to improve your complexion. If a cleanse is not in the cards at the moment, you can use dried chamomile flowers to help reduce scars, fight breakouts, and fade dark spots. The antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties help to clear up your skin.

 

While chamomile is an impressive natural remedy, we would be lying if we said that it was the only star of the show for this face wash. Raw honey is an especially valuable cosmetic ingredient that works to even out skin tone, reduce acne, and heal scars. Because of the way honey is created, the natural enzyme activity and healing bacteria unite to generate powerful healing properties.

 

Benefits of Raw Honey

Lightening and Brightening:

According to several studies, the exfoliating properties of raw honey help to reduce dark spots on your skin. Raw honey also works to remove dead skin cells, which make your skin look run-down and older. Washing your face with honey can help remove bacteria and cleanse the pores, making your skin brighter in the process.

 

Scar Fading:

Raw honey works to accelerate the body’s natural healing process. Many people use raw honey as a spot treatment for scars, or as a face mask to reduce acne scars. More research needs to be done on the scar reducing properties, but current research points toward the fact that raw honey is beneficial for burn scars and scars from deep cuts.

 

For Acne:

When you use honey for acne, especially acne that is on your face, it is crucial to use organic raw unfiltered honey. The reason for this is because raw honey contains healthy bacteria that work to cleanse pores, reduce inflammation and redness, and heal blemishes. Manuka honey is also beneficial for face masks or scrubs.

 

DIY Face Wash

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup unscented castile soap
  • 75 cups filtered water
  • 2-3 tablespoons organic raw unfiltered honey
  • 8 teaspoons almond oil
  • 5 tablespoons dried chamomile flowers
  • 12 drops melaleuca essential oil
  • 12 drops lavender essential oil
  • 8 drops cold pressed rosehip seed oil
  • 1 glass foaming soap dispenser

Instructions:

  • Create a double boiler by filling a medium saucepan halfway with water and placing it over medium heat. Once the water is simmering, reduce the heat to low and place a metal bowl on the saucepan.
  • Pour the almond oil into the bowl and stir in the chamomile flowers. Let this infuse for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the time has elapsed, remove from heat and let it cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Strain the oil through a cheesecloth into a glass jar. Set aside.
  • Pour the water into the soap dispenser and then add the soap and infused almond oil. Screw the lid on the dispenser and shake to combine.
  • Once the bubbles have settled, pour the honey, rosehip oil, lavender essential oil, and melaleuca essential oil into the soap dispenser.
  • Tighten the lid, give it a shake, and dispense a foam dollop into your hand to cleanse your face after all that hard work.

    Q: I am a 49 yr. old black female. When I was younger I had severe cystic acne that left me with what the dermatologist calls "ice pick scaring" and enlarged pores. I had 2 full face dermabrasions in my 30s and have been on retina A from then up until now. I have a pretty healthy diet and exercise routine. My Father and a couple of Uncles of mine also had the same type of skin problems, left with the same aftermath. I use French green clay masks which slightly reduce the look of the large pores and a sugar, honey, and lemon scrub (I make it at home) and I use it on my face. I'm not unattractive, but my skin looks rough and dull and pitted on my cheeks and nose. All the doctors talk about scar revision (cutting),laser treatments, chemical peels, and all sorts of invasive surgeries. I don't want to go that route again and I feel bad about the way I look sometimes. Are there ANY suggestions that you can give that will help me?

    A:

    SKIN PROBLEMS ARE UNDERLYING BLOOD PROBLEMS. CLEANSE YOUR BLOOD, GIVE YOUR BODY NUTRITION. STEAM YOUR FACE. KEEP CLAYING YOUR FACE. IMPROVE UPON YOUR DIET GO ALL RAW FOODS OR VEGAN DIET). A GOOD ARTICLE TO READ IS â€SKIN RASH†ON OUR SITE UNDER ARTICLES.

    A:

    Glad you enjoyed the "Vinegar" article. I don't recommend vinegar on the skin. However, a little inn bath water won't hurt (say about half a cup). I recommend Oz-Oil for the skin. Oxygen is what the skin needs.

    Q: I'm a so-called diabetic, is it really okay to sweeten the tea with honey or maple syrup (these are no no's in the medical field!)? I'm not the best at swallowing pills-can I take the herbs out of the capsule and take it? I know this one sounds crazy, but I'm 32 and over a period of time, I have developed or formed rolls or dents on certain areas of my scalp. I guess it's hereditary-my father has them as well. I hate it! It's an eyesore to me. Is there anything natural for this? Lastly, could you say a prayer for me so that I may make a few wholesale deals (real estate) this month?

    Q: I have severe cystic acne that has caused acne scarring. Some are raised while others are depressed. I have come completely off of the acne medications I've been prescribed and over the counter medicines (i.e., Proactive) and gone the natural route. I first started by changing my diet and followed that with the Full Body Detox. I purchased the olive oil and Shea butter soap and Oz Oil and use this daily. In addition, I use Bentonite clay twice weekly and steam 3-5x a week followed by hydrogen peroxide. I have two questions, will this alone regenerate the scar tissue? And will this also be effective for hyper pigmentation?

    A:

    What you are using now will greatly help your condition (as well as hyper-pigmentation). Just keep doing what you're doing and just know that with Nature patience is required.

    Q: I want to find out about skin lightening or evening out my skintone. I am a dark skinned 46 year old black female, I do not use bleaching creams because they are cancerous, and I think that it borders on black female self hatred, But I have uneven, and very dry dark skin color, I would like to get my skin all to one tone, and moist and healthy. Do you have any ideas, or recipes for a natural bleaching cream?

    A:

    Skin tone changes based upon life changes, just as your hands change based upon life changes. Live healthy, holistic, and everything will come back into balance. You see, evidently you did something for the skin to become uneven, after all, the skin was not always uneven. Something happened based upon what was going on in your life, and things you were doing and thinking. Go back to that period and reflect and start from there. Do the reverse and the healing will begin.

    Q: I would like to know if that was you on the Al Sharpton show, Monday morning. The show is called “keeping it realâ€. My second question is, do you have any products that would help melasma. So many black women and men suffer with this [facial] hyperpigmentation. The only product that I know that really helps is hydroquinone that many women use today to lighten [bleach] their skin tones. I do not want to use it for that purpose; I have a beautiful skin tone. I just need to lighten the pigmentation that has changed my complexion. The darken colorations make me look older than what I am. I see a lot us blacks with this problem. It is unfortunate that the only product that seems to alleviate the problem is not safe. By the way, I do use sunscreen, only on my face; I allow the rest of my skin to get some sun for its great vitamin D benefits. Thanks

    A:

    Work on cleansing your blood, as the skin manifests the condition of the blood. Try our Blood & Lymphatic Formula.

    Q: I start the detox should I keep using this skin lightener that I?m using for the dark spot on my face? Could you please tell me through e-mail because I don?t have a telephone?

    A:

    I would not advise using any chemical(s) during the detox. What you put on your skin is consumed via your skin and into your blood.

    You'd be wise to leave the dark spot alone. It is conveying an inner (emotional/spiritual) message and you are trying to avoid it by covering it up. There's a dark spot in your life you are not FACING which is why the dark spot is on your face.
