How To Reduce Acne With Your Diet

Apr 1, 2008
Acne is a difficult problem to deal with and it has many negative consequences that are hard to ignore. It is important to believe that there is a solution to your acne. Often acne is the result of an imbalance in your body. Many teenagers that suffer from acne do so because of hormonal imbalances.

However what you eat may also trigger the increased growth of acne causing bacteria in your skin. You can use your diet to help create an internal environment that does not promote the growth of this acne causing bacteria. Diets that are high in fats and carbohydrates can contribute to causing more acne.

It is important to control both the quantity and the quality of the foods you consume in order to use your diet to help reduce your acne. While diet alone may not be enough to completely eliminate your acne it can certainly help to reduce it. Many people that have suffered with acne have reported that by making simple dietary changes they have experienced improvements with their acne condition.

A good dietary tip is to reduce the amount of junk foods or processed foods and replace them with freshly made ingredients that are free of preservatives and other chemicals. Sticking to a predominantly natural diet may help your health in many ways including helping you to get clearer skin.

Changing your eating habits can be a great challenge especially if you are used to eating a certain way for a long time but it can be done. You must focus on the benefits to drive you to do what it takes to find a solution to your acne. Eating enough fruits and vegetables is very important as these foods are great at cleansing your system naturally as well providing your body with many nutrients that it needs to heal itself.

Drinking freshly made fruit and vegetable juices can be a great addition especially carrot juice as it is quite effective at promoting healthy skin. You may even want to consider investing in a juicer of your own or you can find many fresh juice stands now in many major malls if you do not have the time to make it yourself.

It may also be a good idea to lower the amount of meats that you eat. There is no need to become a vegetarian but be sure to watch the amounts you eat and keep it under control. Using a whole food supplement can also help such as a green food supplement as this will help to give your body the natural foods it needs in order to function at its best. Remember that your body has many powerful ways to heal itself as long as you provide it with the raw materials it needs.

Keep in mind that there are many factors that can cause acne and diet is only one of them. You must also consider other potential factors like your skin cleansing habits and stress. It is important to not clean the skin too much as this will cause dryness and irritation. Usually just twice a day is enough and using a gentle cleanser is often the best choice as this will irritate your skin the least. Also consider applying stress reduction strategies into your life like exercising or learning how to do yoga or meditation.
