Good overall health is reflected by clear glowing skin like Gwyneth Paltrows. I know she is a big movie star and can afford special treatments, however I hear she eats her fruits and vegetables.
Intestine or digestive problems or too much waste product in the kidneys, liver, lungs can all give cause for breakouts. Other causes include allergies, high fat diet, emotional problems and pollution. Hormonal changes can stimulate food cravings, especially for sweets which can cause acne. Choose organic, low in natural sugar sweets. A piece of organic dark chocolate tastes great, helps with menstural pain and soothes sweet cravings.
Oil normally flows from the glands to the skin’s surface. If dead skin cells accumulate, they clog pores. Since the skin reflects our internal health, acne is sometimes an indicator of toxic conditions. Our bodies are not meant to eat chemicals (toxins) in processed food.
Our body is a wonderful working machine. If something is going wrong it sends us a signal. We need to pay attention!
If you have had an acne challenge for months or years, it may take some time (months) for your skin to turn around but you should notice some changes in a few weeks. American’s are so accustomed to taking a prescription, etc. to get rid of health challenges immediately. I am afraid people are missing signs our body is showing us.
A powerful probiotic and blood cleanser is garlic. It helps internally clean itself out, which can reduce acne. Garlic’s most powerful medicinal effects are when it is eaten raw and crushed. It can be sprinkled on top of a meal at the end of cooking, added to a salads and sandwiches.
A cut clove rubbed gently on the affected area is reported to help reduce acne. Raw garlic is very powerful and can produce a burning sensation and skin reddening. Use sparingly at first.
