British scientists have proven that the most effective herb against acne is thymus. The bacteria “propionibacterium acnes” is the main culprit for acne and thyme has power to destroy it.
If thyme is combined with the active ingredients from the herbs marigolds and myrtle, serum for treating acnes is obtained – this was said in the article of one research at the University of Leeds.
- 1 bunch of dried thyme
- 1 bunch of calendula
- 1 bunch of dried myrtle
- 1/2 l of pure alcohol
How to make:
Place the three plants into pure alcohol and leave it for eight days. Strain them after and store the liquid in a glass bottle. It is used as tonic for facial cleansing.
The resulting serum has antibacterial and soothing effect.
