Herbal Tea For Spotty Skin

Those searching for a healthier alternative for skin problems may want to consider drinking a herbal tea. Spotty skin can be in the form of acne, psoriasis, rosacea, age spots, eczema, hives or general spots and these conditions will affect the majority of us at some point in our lives.

It can affect any part of the body but is especially nerve-wrecking when it's on the face. Our faces are the main feature people will see when we present ourselves in the realms of socializing. Given the fact that we now live in an image-conscious society, having bad skin can be a burden to those who wish to' fit in' with the norm.

The lucky few with flawless looking skin are truly blessed. They don't need to search endlessly or spend obscene amounts of money in the pursuit of the magical cream, lotion or tonic that promises to get rid of those unsightly blemishes. With the prevalence of cosmetic surgery, some will even resort to this kind of procedure to enhance their appearances.

Poor digestion and diet are usually the cause of under-lying skin problems. The approach of herbal teas focuses on restoring internal balance and this emphasis on re-balancing is found in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and in the ancient Indian healing of Ayurvedic medicine. The weather, the environment, stress, radiation from technology, your mood are also other factors that can lead to spotty skin.

Below is a list of herbal tea blends to help alleviate this common problem, and when combined with regular exercise and a healthy diet, we can expect to achieve a more clearer complexion. It is best to consult a trained health care professional or medical herbalist before self-administering herbs for health.

Cleavers

Known as the “lymph cleanser”, it is critical for the immune system. Lymph glands are found throughout the body, mainly in the areas of the head and neck, armpits and groin. Using Cleavers helps to eliminate build up of toxins and it is these toxins that could cause the development of breasts cysts, tumors, prostate and urinary infections. Healthy lymph glands also influence the condition of the skin.

Dong Quai

Known as the “supreme woman’s root” , it is more commonly used in revitalizing health and balancing most rhythms and cycles of the female body. Dong Quai contains Vitamin E and has anti-viral and anti-fungal properties and has also been used to treat certain skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea, neuro-dermatitis, pruritis, hives and vitiligo.

Echinacea

Known as the “immune system beauty”, Echinacea protects and boosts the immune system and can increase your body’s resistance to infection. Native Americans tribes, such as the Sioux Indians, considered this herb as sacred. It is a blood purifier and can help clean the kidneys, lymph system and liver of toxins and protects cells from viruses and bacteria, which means your skin will benefit in the long run.

Lavender

Known as the “herb of harmony”, the aroma from this plant has been highly treasured for its use in calming the central nervous system. It is commonly used to ease anxiety, tension, headaches and dizziness due its anti-spasmodic actions. Lavender also has anti-bacterial and anti-septic properties and is considered one of the best skin healers in stimulating the repair of tissues.

Marigold (Calendula)

Known as “a pot of gold”, it is a favorite amongst herbalists and has been widely valued as a remedy for skin as the oils from the plant are a rich source of anti-oxidants. A wash made from marigold can be applied to skin eruptions, including measles and chicken-pox, in order to dry and heal them. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and is excellent in treating digestive problems.

Rose (Rose Hip)

Known as the “queen of the flowers”, there is an old saying that roses are good for “the skin and the soul” and according to some traditions, when Jesus was born, every rose in the world bloomed! Rose contains many properties including anti-viral, anti-oxidant, anti-septic, anti-bacterial and can aid in digestion - an all-in-one protector for the skin!
