Because of the powerful cleansing action of this herb, Leanne suggests it is best to start with just 1 capsule once a day only and slowly increase to the recommended dosage over a 2 week period. Take 1 capsules for 2-3 days, then increase to 1 capsule twice a day. Each 2-3 days increase by 1 capsule until you have eventually built up to the recommended dosage. If, while increasing this your skin becomes worse, then reduce the dosage by 1/2 and increase more slowly. Also, take an honest look at how much water you are drinking. All people with skin problems should drink no less than 2 litres of water a day.
