How to deal with acne
Acne is caused by hormonal imbalances, which stimulate the sebaceous glands to increase oil output. Inflammation occurs when the sebum gets trapped inside skin pores and bacteria starts to thrive in the tissue. Acne is aggravated by poor internal elimination and high fat and/or refined food diet.
The best way to deal with acne – the natural way – is to drink plenty of water and fresh vegetable (in particular carrot, lettuce and celery juices) and remove all foods that cause hormonal imbalances (like coffee, chocolates, refined sugar and flour and vinegar).
Adding whole grains like brown rice and millet will be very beneficial as well as a lot of leafy vegetable juices and sprouts. All the foods that are high in beta-carotene, vitamin A, B-complex, B6, C and Zinc will be very beneficial if a beautiful skin is what you are after!
