    What does it do?
    This research-based, customized formula is particularly suited to cases that are characterized by abundant pimples, blackheads or bumps. Beyond noncystic acne, it is suitable for a range of skin conditions that manifest in swelling, itching, and redness, and fit into the pattern that Chinese medicine ascribes to heat and/or dampness.

    According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the skin is associated with the lung and body fluids, and acne is often associated with heat and dampness. The redness seen in acne is related to heat, and the tendency of acne to present with a greasy complexion and large pustules is associated with dampness. Zhen Zhu An Chuang Pian is made up of natural Chinese herbs that treat the root of the condition by clearing heat and eliminating dampness from the skin.

    Zhen Zhu, true pearl, is one of Chinese medicine's most famous agents for improving the facial complexion, and it is often incorporated into skin and beauty products. Pearl clears heat and brightens the skin while improving the skin's tone and texture. When taken internally, it also acts as a highly bio-available calcium supplement and improves the skin at the deepest possible level.

    Pu Gong Ying (Dandelion), Jin Yin Hua (Honeysuckle flower), Ye Ju Hua (Wild Chrysanthemum flower), Zi Hua Di Ding (Violet), and Tian Kui Zi (Semiaquilegia root) are all herbs that are found together in the classical formula Wu Wei Xiao Du Yin (Five Ingredient Toxin-Dispersing Beverage). These herbs clear heat and resolve toxins, and they are particularly suited to skin conditions that manifest with redness and/or signs of damp-heat.

    Chi Shao (Red Peony), Mu Dan Pi (Moutan cortex), and Dan Shen (Salvia root) are cooling herbs that move the blood, and together they clear deep-lying heat from the channels of the face. Dan Shen also improves the circulation of blood into the body' tiny capillaries to nourish the skin. Constituents found in Salvia have also been shown to support the function of the heart, the brain, and the liver.1, 2

    Di Fu Zi (Kochia fruit) helps the other herbs to target the skin, and it clears dampness and heat from the skin. Bei Sha Shen (Glehnia root) nourishes the lung yin, which helps the skin to stay lustrous and nourished.
