Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Rosacea has appeared on my face ever since I had a hysterectomy. Where did this come from? Is there any way to get rid of it?
A: Rosacea is an autoimmune condition that often results from an internal imbalance of the body’s energy. There are specific herbal prescriptions that may provide relief. I suggest you consult a local practitioner to determine proper course of action. You can locate one at: www.acupuncture.com
In the meantime, to promote a bright complexion, try this:
Mix 1 teaspoon of pearl powder with 2 ounces of milk. Use this as a facial wash on daily basis before bed.
Additionally, you might try the Traditions of Tao cleansing herbal formula “Acne and Blemish” to drain the heat from irritated skin. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
