The disease “acne” is characterized by the appearance of pimples on the face, neck, back and/or shoulders. Most often, its development begins during puberty and does not pose any health risks. It is more common among boys than among girls. The main reason for the formation of acne is the increased sensitivity of the body to the normal level of the sex hormone testosterone. This prompts the sebaceous glands in the skin to produce an unusually large amount of sebum, a natural oily secretion whose function is to lubricate and protect the skin. The excess sebum hardens and forms pimples, also known as milia.
Bacteria that normally live on the skin easily multiply in them, causing the redness and swelling typical of pimples. In more severe cases of this disease, the pimples turn into hard formations or fluid-filled cysts. In all cases of stubborn acne, it is imperative to do a microbiological examination of the pustules. In the presence of a disease-causing agent, antibiotic treatment is administered.

In the “City Lab” Varna laboratory, such tests are carried out, and the material is taken on the spot by a qualified laboratory technician or doctor.

Sometimes dealing with the nightmare of acne is almost like winning a real war. Along with medical treatment, many cosmetic preparations are also used. However, it happens that all the expensive lotions and creams do not do any work. And what about the herbs? Certainly – proven – the diet is also important!

Herbs that help with all cases of acne are burdock, nettle, yarrow, dandelion, calendula, yarrow.

A proven recipe of several herbs:
30 g of dandelion stalk
30 g of burdock root
30 g nettle leaf
30 g of yarrow flower
30 g of fennel stalk

Prepare a decoction of 2 tbsp. of the herbs with 500 ml of the species for 5 min and take 1 teacup twice a day. Clean your skin once a day with warm water. Dry your skin and apply rose water, maybe elderflower water or chamomile decoction, or calendula tea.

Stubborn pimples, itching, redness and sores that remain scars can be avoided if we act on time and correctly with several classic recipes:

Lemon juice
Juice of one lemon is diluted 1:1 with rose water. This homemade lotion is used in the evening to clean the face, after which a moisturizing cream is applied. For severe and deep acne, you can use tea tree oil, diluted 1:1 with base oil /almond oil or cold pressed olive oil/.

2 tbsp. unsalted cottage cheese mixed with 1/2 tbsp. turmeric. The mixture is stirred until a homogeneous state is obtained and carefully applied to the face. After 10 minutes, the mask is carefully removed with a swab or a piece of old, clean soft fabric /turmeric paints/. Then clean off the residue with cotton pads soaked in rose water and apply a moisturizing cream. The mask is made 2 times a week until the pimples are removed.

It is recommended that the milia themselves be showered with 70% ethyl alcohol by carefully tapping with ear sticks and mandatory cleaning of the comedones by a qualified medical beautician.
