How a Footbath Can Reduce Your Acne

Using a footbath for helping you get rid of acne is a pleasant and relaxing way to deal with your acne. Now, you can do either a footbath or a hand bath. Once you prepare a container with hot water you can put your feet or hands into it and get the same results. The bottoms of your feet are one of the body areas that quickly absorb what is put in that area.

If you already have foot spa, you're in for a treat. If you don't, you can buy one for $20 or $30. Buy one that allow you to change the temperature and that has a reticulation option.


When you use a heated footbath, veins in your feet start to expand. Over a period of 15-20 minute, the warm water affects your entire vascular (blood) system and you get improved blood circulation and that helps to move the herbal nutrient in your bath throughout your body quickly.

By adding an herbal infusion into the hot water in the footbath, minerals, vitamins and other phytochemicals from the herbs enter the soles of your feet and into your blood stream quickly and easily.

During your footbath, these herbal nutrients and chemicals quickly move throughout your body and neutralize acid, kill bacteria, and improve your skin circulation.

Here is an herbal combination you can use. This herbal blend attacks external skin disorders by purifying the blood, carrying away waste, and improving the blood ability to function. Here is the herbal combination:

* Dandelion root - purifies blood and improves liver function
* Yellow dock root - purifies blood, helps liver, is anti-bacterial
* Saraparilla root - has antibiotic action, promotes waste elimination through urine
* Echinacea - increases immunity and promotes skin healing
* Licorice - protects the liver so that it can detoxify the blood better
* Kelp - provide minerals and vitamins and binds heavy metal that are bad for health
* Chaparral - is anti-microbial making effective against acne.
* Fresh Garlic - Garlic is has antibacterial properties.

Buy 1 oz of each herb and mix them in a glass jar. When not in use close the jar and keep it in a dark place or cabinet.

Here's how to do the herbal hand or footbath,

* Place 2-3 tablespoons of herbal mix into 1 ½ cups of water
* Boil the water with herbs - use only a glass, porcelain, or stainless steel container
* After water starts to boil, pull the container off the stove
* Let tea sit for 15-30 minutes. The longer the tea sits the stronger the tea and its effects
* Prepare your foot spa with water
* Strain the tea to remove leaves and roots
* Poor tea and cut garlic into the foot spa
* Place your feet or hands in the hot water for 15 - 30 minutes.

Use this footbath daily for 14-21 days in the morning or evening, for getting rid of acne. And, at the same time, enjoy a relaxing twenty minute footbath.
