Herbal Remedies for Impetigo and Cellulitis ( Skin Infections)

Abstract

There are many bacterias that are responsible for causing skin infections and of these are streptococcus and staphylococcus aureus. Both of these bacteria are responsible for causing a skin condition known as Impetigo which is responsible for causing complications called Cellulitis. Impetigo is a highly contagious disease that involves blistering and can enter the body through minor cuts or even an insect bite. In this article, we are going to discuss Impetigo and cellulitis in detail and their treatment through herbal medicine.

Introduction

Impetigo is one of the most common and highly transmissible diseases which is mostly seen in children and infants. In this skin condition, red sores appear on the skin and are also seen around the mouth, nose, legs, and feet. Sometimes these sores may burst and ooze out which will then form a crust. Whereas Cellulitis is the complication caused by impetigo which is painful and results in inflammation of the affected part. It is very tender to touch and can occur anywhere on the body and is mostly seen in the lower legs. This infection can spread through blood or lymph nodes and is mostly active in warm or hot seasons. Countries like Australia and New Zealand have extreme cases of Impetigo.

Planet Ayurveda Rose Toner For Gorgeous & Youthful Skin !

TONER TIPS FOR ALL SKIN TYPES

The first question that comes to our mind is WHAT IS TONER, WHAT DOES TONER DO TO OUR SKIN & WHY DO WE NEED THIS EXTRA STEP?

Toners are water-based liquids composed of some specific active ingredients like plant extracts and essential oils. Toner is an essential step to add to your skin care routine to maintain poreless and smooth skin as well as used to balance your skin’s pH level but this step is often ignored by many people.

Toners are most essential and necessary for people with oily or acne-prone skin or for people who wear makeup or other heavy products like sunscreen and want extra cleansing or for those who want to add extra radiance to their skin.

TONER TIPS FOR ALL SKIN TYPES

Choose the right toner to all skin types.

ROSE TONER by PLANET AYURVEDA is best facial toner which is free from harsh astringent ingredients, alcohol, and fragrances.

We understand that choosing a new product is a little daunting and at the same time perplexing as well. But if you’re using the wrong formula then there are chances that toner can make your skin dry and itchy.

ROSE TONER by Planet Ayurveda is made from natural ingredients and protects the skin against bacterial attacks.

We shouldn’t overlook the benefits of face toner as it is helpful for acne-prone skin too. Facial toner is also one of the few skincare products that specialize in balancing your skin’s natural pH (power of hydrogen) level. Your skin is naturally acidic, with a pH balance that falls to 5.5. After you wash your face with your regular cleanser, your face becomes more alkaline, once your skin pH level goes above 5.6, the acid mantle (skin first layer of defense) gets compromised, which makes your skin more prone to damage and inflammation as it will make your skin vulnerable to bacteria and infection. ROSE TONER by PLANET AYURVEDA makes your skin work overtime to restore the balance back to normal

Using ROSE TONER by PLANET AYURVEDA balances your skin texture and qualities

  1. Rose Toner preps your face for better absorption of the ingredients that are present in the face cream you apply.

INDICATIONS:

If you have acne-prone or oily skin, our Rose Toner is the natural product you need as the pores in your skin connect to oil glands under the skin. These glands produce an oily substance called sebum and when the follicle pore gets clogged, oil gets trapped and a pimple or acne occurs.
