Herbs, Herbal Cure for Acne

Detoxifying Herbs: The theory is that when the liver becomes congested or sluggish, toxins are not filtered out of the body but instead get into the bloodstream which can show up as a skin problem like acne.

Steep a teaspoon of burdock in one cup of boiling water. Drink 1 to 3 cups a day for 1 to 2 weeks before your period if acne is related to your menstrual cycle. Continue for 3 months to 1 year, until the symptoms subside.

Yellow Dock: It has compounds called anthraquinone glycosides that stimulate bile production, aiding digestion and nudging a sluggish liver.
