Horrible breakout on face since colon cleanse based on Triphala. Help?

Six months ago, a herbalist give me a colon cleanse based on Triphala for a 7 day period (1 cup of boiling water over 1 teaspoon of herb - 3 cups per day). Ever since I ve had horrible breakout on my face. I stopped after 3 days never taking it back. I still have now and then break out on my face. Do I start all over and pursue it for the 7 days? Maybe I broke it off too early? The taste is awful. Many thanks
