Purifying Tea for Acne
Brew up a pot of burdock-dandelion and red clover tea to offset acne outbreaks. Burdock, dandelion and red clover are thought to help purify the blood and detoxify the liver, which in turn affects the skin. To make your own tea:
- Boil one chopped burdock root along with one chopped dandelion root in a pot of water for 20 minutes.
- Remove from heat, and add a handful of red clover.
- Cover and steep this mixture for 30 minutes, then run the brew through a sieve.
- Drink a cup or two of tea every day for four or five days. Fresh roots ought to be available at a good herb shop. Off-season, dried roots and herbs will work also
