Your skin after a breakout is like your heart after a breakup—in need of extra care. To bounce back from a breakout with as little pain as possible, turn to gentle ingredients designed to soothe and rebuild. It may take time, patience, and effort, but rest assured you’ll emerge a new woman! Start with skincare infused with the following 5 ingredients.
Chamomile is a humble little blossom that’s way more powerful than it lets on. It has potent antioxidant properties, which basically means that its healing abilities are excellent. When used topically, chamomile quickly soothes irritation to minimize the aftermath of a breakout. Perfect for sensitive skin!

Cucumber has the ability to turn simple things into amazing things, like a glass of water, for instance, or a sushi roll. But, as you’ve probably guessed by now, it’s great for healing your skin, too. Cucumber contains Vitamin C and caffeic acid, both of which treat irritated skin and bring down redness and pigmentation.

Not just great over toast or with yogurt, honey has boundless benefits for your skin. It can act as a gentle cleanser and a powerful evening moisturizer. When mixed with brown sugar, it transforms into a natural exfoliator that sloughs off dead skin cells. If you have blemish-prone skin, honey’s antibacterial properties are what you’re after. These lift away bacteria and address other impurities that may be lingering on the skin’s surface.

Way back when, the Egyptians hailed aloe vera as the “plant of immortality.” Today, this still rings true. Aloe is one of the most soothing ingredients you can use on triggered skin. Because of how mild yet moisturizing it is, it can counteract swelling, calm itching, and yes, keep premature aging at bay.
