Herbs for Healthier Skin: Chinese Medicine Herbal Cosmetology

Updated: 5 days ago

Today we'll take a look at the use of Chinese Medicine to enhance beauty. Cosmetic Chinese Medicine treatment methods include herbal infusions, external applications, diet, acupuncture, qigong exercise, and massage. In this guest-post article by Dr. Sasa Fukuyanagi, our particular focus will be on the use of herbs for better skin.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the body is considered a hologram: reflecting itself from within itself. In this way, our face, hair, and nails mirror our internal health, and the health of our internal organs is reflected on our body’s surface. Various factors can affect our appearance. For example, an irregular diet, disturbed sleep, poor living habits, workplace stress can all lead to decreased digestive function and cause poor circulation of blood and qi. In addition, endocrine disorders, menstrual disorders can also affect our skin. If you're suffering from a chronic skin condition, be sure to visit our Internal Health page for more information.

We aim to create balance and stability. Herbal medicines are used to help to improve circulation, provide nutrients, and improve the body's ability to remove metabolites. Regulating our body’s internal processes, we can address the root cause of our symptoms and create a more stable and lasting beasuty in the long term.
