How to treat acne naturally?
Traditional Chinese Medicine as an acne alternative treatment looks at the culprit causing an imbalance in your body to decide the proper treatment.
From a traditional Chinese medicine perspective, acne can be the result of a number of different types of internal imbalance — referred to as “patterns”.
These patterns sound strange by contemporary standards, with names like Lung Heat, Blood Stasis and Qi Stagnation. Most often, acne is caused by hormonal imbalances, improper diet, insufficient sleep, or harmful cosmetic and cleansing products. Other factors that can impact the skin are drug use, pollution, smoking, poor digestion, irregular menstruation or improper epidermal shedding.
Acne can be a frustrating part of life that is often treated with harsh cleaning solutions, or even harsher medications that can lead to really complex and devastating side effects. With proper nutrition, cosmetic products, regular facials to clean the skin and regular acupuncture/TCM sessions, it is absolutely possible to achieve and maintain beautiful and blemish-free skin.
