Effective Against Acne?  Dandelion and Its Healing Properties
by Trevor Mulholland
the properties of dandelion tea and see if they would indeed contribute to its
effectiveness.

Dandelion is known as a hated weed. However, it is also recognized as a valuable
medicinal herb. For example, it has been proven to have strong diuretic properties.
This means it is good for expelling water and waste from the body. This would make
it an excellent component for tea, which is why it is often marketed in tea form.

Expelling waste water and substances from the body helps in cleansing the liver,
which in turn helps in creating a better blood circulation. The liver is instrumental to
filtering out toxic elements in the bloodstream, but if the liver is overloaded with
toxins, it is not able to do its job well.

Some believe that a poorly functioning liver or a bad bloodstream causes acne.
However, the cause of acne is known to not be related to the liver, or to the
bloodstream. Acne is caused by an overproduction of hormones, which is why it
often happens in certain particularly hormonal stages in our life, like pubescence and
pregnancy. Even with a healthy liver or circulatory system, acne may still take place if
the hormone imbalance exists. It has also been scientifically proven that some people
have a genetic predisposition to acne, which would explain why Caucasians are more
prone to it than Asians are, although both races are of course prone to acne.

However, acne may be aggravated by a number of factors. Irritation caused by
rubbing or scratching may cause an acne condition to become more aggressive, and
even leave deep scars. Food allergies may also become manifest in acne outbreaks,
regardless of whether or not they come with any other symptoms, such as
shortness of breath and swelling in any part of the body or face.

If we're worried about what's going to "cure" acne, dandelion tea may not do the
trick - however, its ability to cleanse the circulatory system may help in calming
down or preventing acne outbreaks. It never hurts to keep the body clean - and it's
possible to do this with herbal substances, like dandelion tea.
