When dealing with acne, we somehow have the gut feeling that our diets do affect us. Well, you're absolutely correct! It's a proven fact because the toxic substances contained in certain food will cause your liver and kidney to overwork. Thus the skin, being a natural waste disposal organ will take over some of the tasks, and end up contaminated with the toxin which you chowed down so heartily at the diner's just hours ago.
I recently discovered a natural cure for acne when I was holding a potluck in my house a little while ago. As everyone needed to contribute some food or beverage in a potluck, I opted to provide the drinks and some other light snacks. Little did I know that the drink I concocted will give me a surprise when I woke up the next day and looked into the mirror. Needless to say I was an instant believer in my own accidental discovery! Here are the secret ingredients:
First ingredient: Apple - Make the apple juice and add some of the pulp into the juice for some texture. Grind the seed to fine powdery texture and mix a bit of the apple seed into the juice, not too much, but just a little. It may create a powdery texture but it's beneficial as it can effectively clean your colon. Apple contains lots of pectin, which is helpful in maintaining a good digestive system. Pectin also acts as an antioxidant which protects certain skin related diseases like acne. A dirty colon will keep toxic substances locked in your body, which will eventually flare up on our skin. So a clean colon is essential in keeping our skin healthy and clear.
Second ingredient: Pineapple - The enzymes found in the pineapple will fight free-radical damage and also cleanse the skin by dissolving blackheads and dead cells from the skin's surface. Thus also unclogs the skin and prevents buildup of acne and pimples. Generally, pineapples heal the skin.
Third Ingredient: Cucumber - Cucumbers are hydrating, nourishing and they possess astringent properties. Cucumbers have the same pH level as the skin, thus they aid to restore the skin's protective and natural acid mantle. Constant ingestion will cool our body system and serve to sooth and smooth our skin. Having a cool body system will reduce the risks of getting acne and other pimples related breakouts.
By mixing the juices of these three natural fruits and vegetables together in equal portions, one will have a natural and healthy cleanser which will maintain body balance and clear up our acne with consistent intake.
Our skin is the barometer of our health and therefore, good skin is a sign of a good health, particularly our digestive system. Acne patients often have poor digestive systems and may get constipation from time to time. With daily consumption of this concoction for at least three weeks, anyone and I mean ANYONE will be able to see the beneficial effect promised in this article! GUARANTEED! No, I don't sell fruits.
