To manage dry skin, one must first identify the root cause.
In Chinese Medicine symptoms such as oily skin, eczema and acne can be associated with too much "Heat" inside the body.
Dry skin is often associated with an imbalance in the body's yin and yang energies. In Chinese medicine, yin represents the cooling, moisturizing, and nourishing aspects, while yang represents the warming and energizing elements. When there is an excess of yang energy or "heat" in the body, it can manifest as dryness and dehydration in the skin.
Consuming herbs that have cooling properties can help rebalance the body by reducing excessive heat and nourishing the yin energy. Let's explore how some of these cooling herbs can aid in relieving dry skin:
