The problem of acne on the skin worries more than one generation. Gradually, progressive pharmacology has supplanted the means to combat problem skin, which were fought in times where herbs and roots were the only source for the treatment of diseases. Some people still prefer folk methods for cleaning the skin from acne, pimples, wen, urticaria and spots on the face. Very effectively eliminates all problem areas on the face and body, a medicinal herb, the name of which comes from the word “Clean Body” – celandine.
Methods for treating acne with celandine
The juice of this plant is slightly poisonous, but in a small amount it has a healing property, contains alkaloids, organic acids, vitamins A and B. It has an antibacterial and regenerating effect, and also rejuvenates and nourishes the skin.
Preparing a medicine at home is very simple, everyone can choose the most suitable for themselves:
- The juice
A decoction of celandine
To get a good result, it is better to take a freshly cut plant, although a dried one may also work. In a dish that does not give oxidation, put 3 tablespoons of chopped celandine, pour half a liter of boiling water and sweat in a water bath for 10 minutes (if you cook on an open fire, then no more than 5 minutes, but in this case, the useful properties in it become less ), then set aside to cool completely and strain.
With this decoction, it is necessary to make lotions of problem areas of the skin for 3-5 minutes in the morning and evening, after the procedure, rinse your face with cool water and lightly lubricate with cream, as slight peeling may occur. You need to store it in a cool dark place for no more than three days, then it loses all its healing qualities.
The preparation of the lotion is very simple: for 2 cups of boiling water, two tablespoons of chopped dry or fresh celandine, mix well and set aside for three hours, then strain and wipe the face with a cotton pad, this method is a good alternative to cosmetic tonic and helps get rid of short-term skin rashes.
For a deeper treatment, a strong infusion is needed, it is prepared with the same proportions as the lotion, but you need to insist for about three days. The cleaning procedure should be done twice a day, if the skin is sensitive or thin, then it is better not to lubricate the entire surface, but each pimple separately with a cotton swab to prevent burns.
For oily skin types, you can make an alcohol tincture: put 2 tablespoons of chopped celandine, 2 small cucumbers grated on a coarse grater in a glass container and pour it with a glass of vodka. It is necessary to insist at least two weeks. Wet the face with such a solution should be lightly, avoiding friction, so as not to damage the epithelium of the skin, then rinse thoroughly.
This is perhaps the most effective treatment for various types of rashes and warts. The only negative is that it is available only during the period of active flowering of celandine, it is at this time that it is most saturated with all the properties that it is famous for.
To cauterize the resulting abscess, the plant is cut off and yellow juice immediately appears on it, you need to attach the cut to the pimple for a few seconds, leave the liquid that remains at the site of application until it dries completely, then wash it off. If there is no possibility for such manipulations immediately after collection, then crush or grind the stems at home, and make lotions with already squeezed juice using a cotton swab.
But before actively embarking on such procedures, it is better to start with test strokes and observe how the skin will react. In case of a negative reaction, it is better to refuse such treatment.
This method dries well and removes fat, to prepare the mask, you need to take 1 tablespoon of honey, 2 tablespoons of celandine decoction and one egg white, mix it all well and apply on the face for 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water, after such a mask there is no need to apply cream .
For dry and normal skin, the method of preparing the mask is slightly different: for 1 egg yolk, you need to take a teaspoon of olive oil and 10 drops of fresh celandine juice, if it is not possible to get the juice, then 2 tablespoons of decoction will do, then rub everything well into a homogeneous mass. The method of applying such a mask is the same as for oily skin.
Masks with the addition of celandine are great for people with sensitive skin, they help exfoliate keratinized areas and smooth out scars left after acne. This cleaning should be carried out no more than once every two weeks.
Collection and storage of celandine
Dry celandine can be bought at a pharmacy, it is relatively inexpensive, and you can also prepare it for future use on your own. Finding places of vegetation is quite easy, but it is better to collect them away from roads and polluted areas, near summer cottages, forest belts and wilderness. The recommended harvest time is June and July, during the period of active flowering, in dry weather, so that there is no moisture on the plant.
When collecting, take precautions, wear protective gloves, long sleeves and a respiratory mask to prevent pollen from entering the skin and respiratory tract, which can cause an allergic reaction. You need to pluck it along with the root, trying not to disturb the structure in order to avoid the leakage of healing juice.
It is recommended to dry the collected stems in a poorly developed, ventilated and dry place, in a suspended state by the root. The faster the drying occurs, the more useful properties will be preserved. After drying, grind them better, pour them into a paper bag or cardboard box, and store in a dry, dark place for up to three years.
