Calendula is often used in medicine and cosmetology. Tincture of this plant is the simplest and most effective means for treating acne in the home.

Существует еще один вариант изготовления домашней настойки календулы. 25 г мелко нарезанных цветков календулы заливают 50 мл 40% спирта, добавляют стакан воды и 70 мл тройного одеколона. Настаивать так же, как в предыдущем рецепте. По истечении положенного времени в процеженную настойку добавляют 5 мл глицерина и столько же 5% борной кислоты. Любой вариант настойки подходит не только для лечения угрей, но и для разглаживания шрамов и рубцов, оставшихся после прыщей. Для этого проблемные участки просто несколько раз в день смазывают полученной настойкой.
Do not lubricate the entire face with the tincture, as the alcohol dries the skin. Problem areas are better to handle pointwise, using a cotton swab for this.

It will require: a glass of purified water, 10 ml of liquid natural honey, 10 ml of calendula tincture. All components are combined and mixed thoroughly. Use at least twice a day.
