Spots and acne affect around 95% of people from the ages of 11 to 30, and some continue to experience break-outs further into adult life. They can become sore and uncomfortable, as well as affecting our confidence and self-esteem.

The reason we get spots is actually the body’s healing response to pores that have become clogged and inflamed. Each hair follicle on the skin has a sebaceous gland which secretes oily sebum to prevent the skin from drying out.

When these pores become clogged, the body increases blood flow and chemicals to the area to repair and heal, which causes inflammation.

Support your skin’s defences

The good news is that there are many things we can do to support our skin to stay healthy and to address skin breakouts when they occur:

  • Diet has a direct effect on our skin and it is best to avoid eating too many foods with a high glycemic index, such as white bread, pasta, sweets and ready meals. These foods increase the production of hormones and sebum levels, leaving us more susceptible to break-outs.
  • Exercise increases our blood flow, which in turn delivers more oxygen to our cells to nourish the skin. It also helps eliminate waste products and cleanses the skin from the inside.
  • Taking a natural herbal medicine, such as HRI Clear Complexion can help the body to heal from the inside rather than simply using topical creams and treatments which only work on a surface level.

Herbal ingredients

HRI Clear Complexion tablets are a unique formulation, harnessing the healing powers of two herbs, Blue Flag and Burdock root, which have used for hundreds of years to treat skin problems such as acne, spots and eczema.

Burdock herb has a traditional use for ‘cutaneous eruptions’ where the skin breaks out in spots or other skin conditions. It is also used to target eczema and psoriasis.

Blue Flag is a beautiful flower that has been used for hundreds of years for its dermatological and anti-inflammatory properties.
