  • Burdock Root

    Burdock Root is a very helpful herbal remedy for acne scars. Arctium Lappa is the botanical term for this herb.

    You can take Burdock root extract for not only curing acne, but also removing the scars left behind one the acne has cleared. This is because Burdock root purifies the blood and removes toxins from the body. It also promotes good circulation and quick healing of the scars on the skin.

  • Dandelion Root
