Dandelion

 

There are many varieties of dandelion, but the common one is scientifically known as Taraxacum officinale.


In terms of history, the plant is believed to have evolved about 30 million years ago in Eurasia.


Dandelion, which literally translates into “lion’s tooth” in French, is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, calcium, and detoxifiers, which explains its common inclusion in medicines.


Prevention of Acne

Dandelion juice has been known to be a good detoxifier, diuretic, stimulant, and antioxidant. These four properties make it a great treatment for acne. 


Toxins tend to come out along with sweat through the sweat glands or sebaceous glands on the skin.

When oil is secreted expelling toxins which are then mixed with dead skin, it block the pores and the secretion of toxins is obstructed. Therefore, the toxic substances cannot escape and eventually result in acne. This situation is exacerbated by the microbial infections in the affected places. Dandelion juice, being  known to be a stimulant, diuretic, and detoxifier by nature, can help regulate proper secretion of hormones, increase sweating, and widen the pores. 


All of these factors help facilitate the removal of toxins through sweat and urine. 


Furthermore, dandelion sap, if externally applied to areas with acne,  has known to inhibit microbial infection and reduce the signs of acne. Also, it may speed up healing due to its vitamin C content, so the scars and ugly red inflammation that traditionally follow acne treatment will be less noticeable.
