Natural Remedies for Teen Acne

Chinese medicine and herbs get great results for teen acne. Most teenagers, male or female, want to have healthy looking skin. One of the common causes of acne and other inflammatory skin conditions (according to Chinese medicine) is too much heat and dampness in the stomach, lungs and intestines creating skin toxicity. Our natural remedies help to promote healthier skin.

Today the majority of teenagers are under stress. Too many stress factors can exacerbate the excess heat trapped in the body, which then expresses itself on the face. As a mother of two teenage girls, I know that their busy schedules (school, sports, complex social lives) along with hormonal changes can leave them depleted.

My program consist of:
Consultation To identify the cause
Recommendations Appropriate treatment
Facial Herbal Treatments Specialized herbal powders & fruit enzymes to detoxify the skin
Chinese Herbal Acne Pills Our own special mix of high quality herbs in a pill form that addresses the accumulation of damp, heat toxins
Other Herbs Formulated in our clinic such as our herbal stress pills
Skin Care Products Natural anti-inflammatory skin products that we carry in our clinic ~ award winning Osmosis Skincare products & special herbs
Acupuncture Not necessary for most patients, but if the teenager is under severe stress, acupuncture can be helpful to calm the patient’s nervous system
Dietary & Lifestyle Recommendations Customized for each patient

 

In cases of severe teen acne, it is important for the patient to adhere to most of the lifestyle changes listed below.

Healthy lifestyle recommendations:
Fortifying foods with a high vegetable and fiber content
Drinking a healthy amount of water
Proper sleep
Daily skin care regimen
Exercise (sweating helps unblock congested pores)
Changing pillow cases every 2-3 days
Epsom salt baths
Monthly or bi-monthly soothing facial mask treatment from our clinic (includes aloe vera, enzymes and herb powders individualized for each patient)

Bitter foods to help combat Dampness such as vinegar, dandelion, cauliflower, barley, rye, endive, basil, cardamon, sage, tea

 

Avoid or significantly minimize:
Excess sugars Shellfish
Fatty fast foods such as pizza, pasta, chips and desserts Rich dairy products (cheeses and ice creams)
Fried foods Caffeine
Processed foods Cold drinks with ice


By avoiding these congestive foods, the body has a chance to heal and detoxify.

Effective foods to reduce Dampness

Azuki beans

Garlic

Mushrooms

Parsley

Rye

Barley

Green tea

Mustard

Pumpkin

Scallions

Celery

Kidney beans

Onion

Radish

 

When the dampness in the body is not addressed, the body becomes like a swamp instead of a river; bacteria thrive in this poor condition leading to cystic acne.

Effective foods to reduce Heat/Toxins

Apple

Cabbage

Millet

Potato

Asparagus

Grapefruit

Mung bean

Watermelon

 

Lemon

Peppermint

 

Conclusion

My teenage daughters have inspired me in my treatments of patients with acne. It is a condition that we can achieve great results with, and they have reaped the rewards of my experience in this field, combining all natural Eastern and Western techniques. You may wonder how you can get your teens to do what I’ve recommended above. You will be surprised that most teens will WANT to do what is necessary to get their skin looking healthy. It all starts with adding a simple healthy routine into their daily lifestyle.
