    Chinese Medicine for Hormonal Acne

    The trick is to find the right Chinese medicine for hormonal acne depending on gender. Topical herbs and essential oils can be used for both genders in order to clean the face using antibacterial elements such as lavender, calendula and senna leaves.

    • Male hormones can be balanced using: tribulus, milk thistle and saw palmetto.

    • Female hormones are regulated by: vitex, red clover, raspberry leaf and stinging nettle.
