Do you have any information on external medicinal herbs that treat acne?

Acne can not be cured with external treatment, though the spots can be cleansed and dried with Witch Hazel extract, Tea Tree or Thyme.

Curing acne involves a diet low in fat, free of dairy and sugar and including lots of fresh fruit and vegetables.

For more information, you can search the Richters web page www.richters.com by choosing "Q&A" from the main menu, then choosing "Search Richters Q&A", then searching for "skin" or "acne".
