Beauty routines over the years have evolved into various styles, ingredients, and preferences. And although there are different kinds of beauty products available in the market, at the end of the day, natural herbs and spices are what keeps our body and our skin healthy and nourished. Here are 5 herbs you can use either in your daily tea or in a beauty regime for the best results.
A rosemary shampoo can work wonders on your hair. It helps to darken and strengthen your hair right from the damaged hair shafts. You can alternatively use a rosemary tea recipe as an after-shampoo rinse.
Chamomile tea with a hint of thyme acts as a great cleanser for oily skin. You can also take a bath in this chamomile tea water to achieve clear skin and clear up your pores and blemishes.
Most popularly used in many beauty treatments across the world, Lavender is an antiseptic and helps in soothing inflamed skin and burns. Drinking Lavender tea or using spritzing lavender perfume (distilled water with lavender oil) on your face or body helps elevate your mood with its scent.
Best for oily skin, sage is an astringent. When mixed with tea and witch hazel or a dash of apple cider vinegar, it can be used as a nourishing toner for your skin. You can always skip on the sage and just use the tea for a daily toner as well.
Medicated or otherwise, rosewater has been used in beauty treatments from the early ages. Roses are mostly used in beauty therapy and treatments for their sweet scent and flavour in cooking. You can make your own rose water by boiling rose petals in water. It is an astringent and anti-inflammatory in nature. Use cotton balls to apply rosewater on your face for a refreshing look and feel every day. The scent is a bonus!
