CheckCheckMail: Whenever I have a lot of pimples, my mom will tell me to have some Tortoise Herb Jelly, but I don’t feel like it helps at all. Why is that?
CheckCheckCin: Tortoise Herb Jelly is usually made of turtle shell, selfheal plant, Chinese prayer bead grass. They’re generally bitter and cold natured and are more suitable for those with heat-related symptoms. Tortoise Herb Jelly is cold-natured so it can easily hurt your spleen, stomach and overall yang qi. Taking too much, especially for those not having any heat-related symptoms, can lead to soft stool, fatigue, and cold limbs. Since it has healing effects of clearing heat and detoxification, it can help with acne due to damp heat and heat toxin. This type of acne has pimples with pus, red in color, hot and painful. It is usually accompanied by oily face and bad breath.
