Traditional Chinese Medicine - Double Detox Tea & Mask
Honeysuckle flower of traditional chinese medicine is commonly used to treat skin infections such as boils or pus-filled infections reducing pain, swelling and redness. It is also commonly used to treat acne on face and body, it also helps to relieve skin rashes, itching, discomfort and anti-allergy for dry skin, eczema and psoriasis prone skin.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Chrysanthemum flower is sweet, bitter and slightly cold properties, it is associated with the Lung and Liver meridians. Its three main functions are to pacify the liver, to release toxins, and to dispel wind and clear heat. Hence it’s good for clearing heat from the liver, detox and promotes eye health and clear vision. Chrysanthemum has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-aging properties too. There are any varieties of chrysanthemum, yellow chrysanthemum is used for dispersing wind and heat pathogens, and white chrysanthemum is for soothing liver and promoting vision. White chrysanthemum is often used for infusing tea. Here in this formula, we are using the yellow chrysanthemum.
Acne, swelling, inflammation, skin sores and abscess are generally regarded as toxic heat signs in TCM so combining these 2 flowers gives us a double action tea that is very good in clearing heat and detoxifies the skin, reducing acne and inflammation as well as redness, swelling and skin sensitivity.
This tea can be drank during the day and doubled up to be used as a mask at night, maximizing the effectiveness. The mask is good for those who wants to reduce redness, swelling or sensitivity, oily skin, having acne breakouts. It can even be used on hemorrhoids to reduce the swelling and pain.
One tea with 2 uses- perfect for our busy lifestyle!
These ingredients are easily available from any Chinese Medical Halls. The dry sheet mask can be bought from beauty stores or Daiso.
