Information on Acne

DescriptionAcne is an inflammation of the skin's sebaceous glands.
Treatment PlanAcne usually results from an imbalance or excess in hormones, usually testosterone, or a toxic condition of the bowels and blood. Herbalists often recommend blood purifiers to help remove waste products, and cooling herbs to help remove "heat toxins" from the blood, intestines and liver. Also, alternating hot and cold water compresses on affected areas can be beneficial.
