Nature against acne
Acne is the result of inflammation in sebaceous glands under the skin surface, and the inflammation has several stages. The most common cause are spots which actually allow the sebum to reach the skin surface. In puberty a majority of young people get affected by this problem, but sometimes it can prolong much longer.
The first thing a person with this problem should do is to make sure to practice good hygiene which means washing the face with lukewarm water using regular soap instead of some (unjustifiably) expensive and aggressive cleansing products. Rinse with cold water and dry by patting not rubbing.
Preparation method for compress facial mask
Ingredients for tea:
- Leaves and flowers of heather with blue flower: 20 grams
- Leaves of heather with white flower: 10 grams
Boil 1 liter of water and leave it to cool down overnight and then put the flowers into it.
The next day cook on the low heat with the lid on for five minutes, strain afterward and put the liquid into a jar and seal.
Use another jar to put 20 grams of crushed heather (with blue flowers) leaves and yarrow and pour with one-half a liter of alcohol (vol. 40%) and seal.
Leave it for 2 days and shake from time to time. Then strain and mix with the first liquid you’ve prepared. Keep in a cool, dark place and shake before use.
Upon washing the face with cotton pads soaked in this liquid, place them on the affected areas and leave it to work for 15 minutes. Do not rinse and repeat again before sleep.
It would also be good to have a half liter of tea made from the following herbs:
- lemon balm: 20 grams of leaves
- shepherd’s purse: 20 grams of the stalk
- heather: 20 grams of leaves and flowers
- teurcium: 20 grams of the stalk
- couch grass: 20 grams of root
- valerian: 20 grams of root
Chop everything and mix. Put 5 grams into 1 liter of boiled water and cook for a half minute with the lid on. Cool down, pour into a bottle and close.
Avoid dry meat products and eat as much fruit and veggies as possible. Working out could also do you good as weel as frequent changing of your sheets.
