When it comes to acne, most people are so concerned about their appearance that they focus exclusively on external treatments without taking time to think about how to clean their body. And therein lies the problem! No wonder people struggle so much in order to get rid of the acne scars. Let me ask you something: do you know how acne scars are formed?
When a pimple or blackhead, seated deep-rooted in your skin, breaks open, the bacteria lying around the skin’s surface infects that part of the skin. In response, the body dispatches red blood cells and white blood cells as an immunity measure – in order to fight and kill the bacteria. While the bacteria get killed and the wound on the skin is healed, a big, ugly scar is formed in the place of the pimple/blackhead. The toxins present in the blood is sent out to the skin cells and tissues, resulting in the formation of even more scars The problem is, too many of these scars can spoil your appearance and make people avoid you like the plague!
As a matter of fact, those with a higher amount of toxins in their body are more likely to get lots of scars and blemishes than others. Therefore, it is highly important to make sure that you keep your blood free from toxins all the time. That is where herbal blood cleaners come in! As their name suggest, herbal blood cleansers help flush out the toxins but various methods: such as by increasing your urine and excreta outputs, as well as by improving your digestion! When your blood is free from toxins, you have fewer chances of getting your skin spoiled with scars! Now, let me discuss some of the well-known herbal cleansers available:
Red clover: This is a really popular herbal blood cleanser and is used a lot for getting rid of acne scars and blemishes. Red clover is useful in two ways: it helps to detoxify your body by increasing your urine output (and thus cleaning your body of the toxins), plus it also helps improve the blood circulation. When you have no toxins in your blood, only healthy and nutritious substances are sent to the skin cells, which in turn reduce the instances of scars and blemishes! No wonder red clover is an essential component in products for treating acne, psoriasis, and eczema!
Carrot, Spinach and Beet Root Juice: Here is another herbal natural cleanser: actually it is a combo made up of vegetables easily available either in your kitchen or local market. This combo is helpful in removing acne blemishes and scars. The beet root especially helps purify your blood of toxins. To prepare the cleanser, simply combine 100ml each of spinach and beet root juice with 300ml of carrot juice.
As an alternative, you can make a similar juice by blending marshmallow, dandelion, comfrey, mint, parsley and lamb’s quarters together; then add some pineapple juice to the mix and continue the blending process. This juice would rid your body of toxins by improving your bowel function! Please do not throw away the pulp; it may taste bitter, but it is equally rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes, as is the main juice; if necessary, you can add a little amount of honey to the mix!
Burdock: The root of burdock offers multiple benefits: on one hand, it functions as a detoxifier of your body by acting both as a laxative (increasing excreta output) and diuretic (increasing urine output). In addition, it also kills the parasites present in blood! The burdock root is rich in both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties!
Grapefruit: Grapefruit juice is also quite effective in cleansing your blood of toxins. If you don’t have grapefruit at home, even drinking plain water would help detoxify the body!
Watercress and celery: These two are very powerful blood cleaners and once again, these are natural herbs so they don’t come with any side-effects. These two detoxify your body by increasing both your urine and excreta outputs!
