The pot marigold is a notch above many other flowering plants when it comes to its health benefits. Use it as a topical treatment for acne, skin inflammation, dermatitis, or even hemorrhoids. Drink tea made from this variety of marigold to soothe an inflamed stomach lining and treat ulcers. If fungal infections are an issue, that’s something calendula can help with too. And if that’s not enough, antibacterial and antiseptic properties make it a natural remedy for wounds and cuts while also helping aid healing.
Cleanse your face with gentle products such as an infusion of marigold flowers, pulp of a ripe tomato, plain yogurt, or a mix of beaten egg whites and lemon juice, to remove dirt and oil that can clog your pores. Avoid greasy makeup and do remember to always remove makeup before going to bed. Be sure to exfoliate your skin regularly (about once a week!).
Soak a clean washcloth in cooled green tea/chamomile tea or plain cold water and press onto the face for 2-3 mins, twice a day. Wear sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher; use mild soaps, moisturizers. Avoid food, drinks that are hot in temperature (spicy foods, alcohol). Try herbal helpers like calendula salve, aloe vera gel, or colloidal oatmeal face masks.
Chamomile is an excellent emollient and reduces signs of photoaging. Aloe Vera can penetrate the skin’s deepest layers and is 50% more effective for treating burns than any other remedy. Calendula has oil soluble components that stimulate wound healing. Horsetail has firming qualities making it a good anti-aging cream/peppermint nourishes dull skin.
