As you know, Chinese healers have a lot of natural remedies for almost any disease or problem. Acne, a common problem among teenagers and not only, can affect our image, self esteem and our psychic. Chinese people have this medicine that can treat it for millennia and they consider that the causes are the toxins from our blood and digestive systems.
The principle in this treatment is the elimination of heat and toxins from our bodies, cleaning our blood and intestine. Any problem with our digestive system manifests on our skin. In other words, if we have an unhealthy life style, people can see it.
Change your lifestyle
As a result, we need to be careful with the way we eat and we need to care a lot about our hygiene. We should cut the fats as much as possible and get our vitamins and nutrients from healthy food. This way, we will manage to reduce the toxins in our bodies and get rid of acne. Processed or packed foods need to be avoided as well and replaced with natural oils that are rich in Omega-3 (such as flaxseed and salmon).
Consume as many fresh fruits and vegetables as possible. Those products are very good nutrients and they clean our bodies. Beta-carotene, A vitamin and fibers are the principal factors that will help in the process of detoxification. Try to avoid garlic, coffee and condiments, because they heat the body and produce acne. Chinese people prefer to consume aliments that “chill” the body and drink a lot of water. Water is the main source that can purify the organism, making it stronger to fight against acne.
