A Surprising Therapy Heat for Acne
A hot Epsom-salt bath twice a week will be highly beneficial in all cases of acne. This bath is prepared by adding one and a half kg of Epsom salt to 50 litres of water having a temperature of about 100º F. The patient should remain in the bath from 25 to 35 minutes until he perspires freely. After the bath the patient should cool off gradually. Why should this method work? The warmth of the water stimulates the flow of blood. The bloodstream is then able to carry off impurities from acne-affected skin. This therapy is especially important in cases of "diabetes of the skin." Acne sufferers who are in any way sensitive to sugar (whether or not they have diabetes) can benefit from the therapeutic bath.
