Steam your face
Get a large bowl of boiling water ½ fill. Place some lemon and orange peel and storks from mint in the water. Place your face over the bowl (DO NOT touch the water) and put a towel over your head to create an oven. Do this for 5-10 mins 3-4 times/ week.
• Make sure the bowl is on a sturdy table and all care is taken that the contents can’t be spilt
Wash your face with a gentle ph neutral soap 2-3 times daily.
Drink a tea made of
5 mint leaves (twist them to bruise)
1 slice of ginger 1/2 cm thick
Allow the tea to steep 5 minutes before drinking
Eat zinc rich foods;
beef short-rib, spinach, wheat germ, nuts (walnuts), mushrooms
Citrus! Orange juice, grapefruit, etc. Lot of green leafy vegetables.
Maintain a healthy balanced diet.
You are what you eat so eat lots of green leafy vegetables, essential fatty acids, and a regular portion of meat. Drink at least 2 litres of water per day.
Avoid fatty greasy food from takeaways, alcohol, foods high in sugar (particularly high fructose corn-syrup) and foods high in blended vegetable oils.
