Using Vitamins,Veggies and Protein to Keep Acne Away
There is a saying. Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels.One of the biggest culprits of causing acne is a poor diet. We live in a day and age where most people are on a very poor diet high in saturated fats, refined sugars, processed junk food, etc.
We all know that these are detrimental to our health yet most of us bury our heads in the sand and ignore what our brains are telling us. If you are prone to acne breakouts and you want to put an end to your acne problems, the first place you should look at it your diet.
The food you eat will have many effects in your body and since you don’t usually know all the ingredients in the processed foods that you buy, you will never know which one is triggering your acne breakouts.
This article will tell you how to consume certain foods to combat and prevent. You already know what foods to avoid. Let’s look at what foods you should be eating.
The body needs vitamins and minerals. Yet, most commercially sold food is nutrient deficient. You will need to eat a diet that has all the right vitamins and nutrients in order to fight acne.
You will need a good vitamin B complex, vitamin C and vitamin E for good skin health. You should also consume minerals such as calcium hydroxyapatite complex, chromium, mineral electrolytes and zinc gluconate to relieve your acne issues.
Once your acne has subsided, you should stop consuming the supplements and try to get your daily dose of vitamins and minerals from food. This will be beneficial in the long run and unlike supplement pills and tablets, a good diet will have no side effects.
Vegetables are another powerful weapon against acne. If you do not like eating vegetables, you may juice them and drink the juice. If you hate drinking the juice, tough luck. Just pinch your nose and gulp it down. Vegetables are too good for you to ignore them and they are very effective against acne.
You should note that you should always drink fresh vegetable juices. Do not buy pre-packaged bottles of carrot juice, etc. Most commercially sold juices are laden with additives and other substances.
Your best bet will be to get a juicer and make your juice at home. Carrot, apple, spinach, beet and celery juices are excellent to consume for good skin health. You should also eat vegetables like cabbages, broccoli, cucumbers, garlic, radishes, green peppers, etc.
All these vegetables will purify your system by washing away waste and maintaining a good pH balance in the body.
Protein is also necessary for good skin and you should be consuming protein from sources such as brown rice, oats, almonds, flax seeds, whole grains, pecans, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, etc.
Meat does contain lots of protein but it is also high in saturated fat. That is why it is best to limit consumption of meat and stick to the grains. Human beings were meant to be on a vegan diet.
When meat is consumed, it tends to rot in our intestines creating toxins that will spread out to the skin and this will lead to acne. So, if you have acne, its best to stick with the vegetable proteins. You may eat eggs too.
Once you follow the dietary advice given above, within a short while, you will notice that your skin condition will improve and you’ll be less prone to acne. This should be enough to motivate you to eat healthy and be healthy for life.
