Acne and Diet - The Connection That Will Surprise You

Mar 8, 2008
Logically speaking, what you put in your body will either benefit it or adversely affect it.

Did you know that the skin is actually an organ? It's the largest organ of your body, and apart from protecting your insides, it also helps eliminate waste. Is it really any wonder that the more waste there is to deal with, the worse your skin will look? If you eat a lot of unhealthy foods, it will show one way or another.

This article will explore how acne and diet are related. Hopefully, you get some good ideas on how you can go about curing your pimple problem through what you eat.

You may know that there are lots of acne treatment products available. The thing is, they only treat the symptoms. The products themselves don't address the underlying problem. In other words, they don't prevent your body from producing those annoying blemishes.

One of the best things you can do for yourself, apart from cutting out processed foods, is eating more fruits and vegetables. Your skin produces oils naturally, but unhealthy foods cause your body to excrete even more oils.

Acne and diet are inextricably linked. The fact is, if you have a dirty colon, you have a problem that is linked with diet and acne. If you eat a lot of foods that your digestive tract has a hard time breaking down, you'll likely have undesirable skin conditions.

These 'stuck' foods turn into toxins, and some of those toxins are released through the skin. When you eat fiber-rich foods like fruit, vegetables, and whole grains, your digestive tract will thank you and so will the rest of your body, including your skin.

If you consume a lot of fried foods, tea, coffee, animal products, microwave food, alcohol, painkillers, white flour, and hydrogenated fats, you probably have a lot of mucoid plaque in your body right now.

This type of plaque, along with other types of bacteria, feast on old feces in your system.

Another critter that causes problems is the candida. This bugger will feed off the sugars in the food you consume; then it happily excretes toxic chemicals that create skin problems.

Try making psyllium a part of your diet. It's very rich in fiber. You can likely find it in a health food store, or even in a local grocery store. You don't have to do much with it: Just mix a tablespoon in a glass of water and drink up.

You'll often find psyllium used in laxative liquids. It's good to take because it will clear out the bacteria and keep you regular.

There are plenty of other foods that can help you conquer your acne. So, acne and diet are very much related.
