Acne Fighting Super Foods

Here are a few foods you should know about that can help your skin out a lot. I also cannot stress enough that drinking water (and plenty of it) and minimizing consumption of sodas and juices can help your skin, your health, and the way you feel tremendously! I got this article from ezinearticles.com check it out!

 "Treating acne using foods and herbs can be a great way to deal with acne. While some people might not think that it's possible to cure acne by just eating some herbs and change the course of a diet, based on my first hand experience, it is really possible doing so. This article will show you some of the best foods for acne and herbs that can really help dealing with the skin disorder.

1. Carrots are great for your acne and skin.

Carrot, which contains a lot of fibers and vitamin A as well as other vitamins and minerals, is really a must eat food. Why? Because the fibers in carrot can help detoxifying your body and the huge amount of vitamin A really is helpful to acne. The lack of vitamin A alone can cause acne, and when your body gets enough of vitamin A, it is possible to treat your acne condition really effectively.

So from now onwards, try to include more carrots in your meals and diet.

2. Ginger and garlic

Ginger and garlic are the world's best natural antibiotics. They both improve your immune system when consumed, and their anti inflammatory properties also mean that the swelling and redness caused by acne can be reduced to a great extent.

3. Papaya.

Papaya is also a very good fruit to have when you have acne. It helps with your digestion and enables your body to remove those unwanted toxins that create chaos in your body to be removed easily and effectively, and by doing so, it helps with your acne. Papaya also contains papain, an enzyme that is used to fight inflammation. By eating more papaya, you are effectively reducing the inflammation, swelling and redness caused by acne, making your zits less visible.

4. Diet Changes

Change your diet to a better one, and you stand a great chance to treat your acne completely. Avoid foods that are oily and contain a lot of food additives. Eat in more foods that are high in fiber and vitamins. Drink more water to flush the toxins out of your body. With those toxins flushed and removed, your immune system will be improved and your hormone secretion will be regulated, making your acne to disappear faster than you can imagine."

Blame Biology for Your Acne

I’ve been seeing this commercial a lot lately for this acne treatment cream called Epiduo. I don’t know too much of anything about it, or how well it works, but I did want to point out it’s standpoint on acne. The commercial is all about growing up and maturing into an adult (puberty basically). It shows how it can bring good things, like giving you boobs if you’re a girl, and if you’re a dude you’ll get muscles and so on. But one thing that comes with all of the good is acne, so the whole point of the commercial is don’t blame yourself for your acne “blame biology”! So for most people no matter what they do are just going to have some sort of acne during the puberty/growth period. Some people might get mad when they hear these because it makes them feel hopeless. Others might feel relieved as they can eat or do whatever they want and know that although acne sucks it will go away soon. Now, although your acne is caused because your growing doesn’t mean there isn’t anything you can do to minimize outbreaks and keep your skin healthy! Today we know more than ever about things and treatments that work the best to fight and try and cure acne. So if your acne bothers you to the point where it affects your daily life and how you act I strongly recommend seeing a dermatologist. Who knows maybe you’ll get put on Epiduo!
