Pimples and spots

Pimples and spots are quite normal at puberty when the metabolism is altering, and poisons come out in the skin. When spots come out excessively, according to Chinese Medicine the heat in the blood and stomach must be cooled. Herbal tea made of honeysucklechrysanthemum or dandelion will clear the heat in simple cases. In severe cases of pimples and spots a Chinese Medicine practitioner will prescribe medicine made from skullcaprhubarb, even gypsum. Fresh rehmannia is also effective.

In China, patent herbal creams can be bought over the counter but they are not available in Britain. A reasonable substitute is to cleanse the skin with fresh watermelon, which is very cooling. Either watermelon or cucumber is good for the skin and makes a simple, inexpensive but beneficial beauty treatment.
