According to legend, when Empress Wu Zetian in Dang Dynasty Empress Wu (the only female monarch of China) is at the age of 50, her skin is as young as a 15 years old girl. When she is 80 years old, her skin does not look old. The reason why her skin could still be kept in such good condition is that she uses motherwort-made skin care products. Motherwort is beneficial for the woman. It not only helps to tackle dark skin spots and reduce wrinkles, but also facilitates the detoxification of body and cure acnes.
“Brandy Nose” is commonly known as “Coppernosed” and medically it is named as “Rosacea”. It is a disease where skins are damaged slowly. The symptoms are similar to the appearance of people who gets drunk. The face is full of acnes and turns red as the blood flow under skin increases. It is common to the middle-aged people, and is more serious and prevalent to males than females. The exact cause of such disease remains uncertain, as there are lots of possibilities that trigger or intensify such illness. For example, eating spicy food, drinking wine, getting nervous or having unstable emotions. These will cause vasomotor disorder, trichocryptosis, and repeated infections. In recent years, the relationship between such illness with Helicobacter pylori and immune system draws people’s attentions. It is believed that Rosacea is more likely triggered by trichocryptosis infection. According to a research done recently, the factors that increase chances of getting Rosacea are due to weather, emotions, people’s health condition and diet. People with imbalance skin’s oil and water level have a higher risk of Rosacea.
