Clear Plan for Clear Skin

Acne is a boldfaced liar! It takes a person’s skin and makes its own false marks upon the unwilling host. How many otherwise attractive people have suffered a loss of social acceptance by acne?

Be confident as it is possible to fight the skin problem with the help of nature. With the exception of the more severe varieties, results should appear noticeable after a few days. The first step is to purge the diet of salty, greasy, and sugary foods. Why fuel the pustules with what they crave as much as you do? The next step is to increase the flow of water. Drink at least 6-8 bottles per day. This will help flush out the toxins in the body. For greater effect, put 1-2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in one of those bottles each day. The minerals in the vinegar are beneficial to the skin. Apple cider vinegar is rich in potassium. Doctors know that pimples are often a symptom of a potassium deficiency.

Vegetables, especially those that are dark green or orange in color are also helpful. Spinach, kale, and other greens help balance and contribute to the skin’s overall cellular needs. In the orange area carrots contain beta-carotene. This is not just a substance good for the eyes, it is also very good for the skin. It is recommended that beta-carotene intake come from foods rather than supplements.

In addition to quality food intake, some regular daily supplements will be helpful. Flaxseed oil is effective in reducing skin inflamation. Vitamin A should be consumed at about 5,000 IU per day. If vitamin A is to be used effectively however, zinc, selenium and vitamin E should also be used with it. The added benefits of this group will be a boost to the overall immune system. Getting fewer illnesses is not a bad side effect!

If you have a blender or a juicer, a good drink for clear skin would be the following recipe:

  • 4 carrots (full size) or a dozen baby carrots
  • 3 apples (cored but keep the skin)
  • ½ of a cucumber
  • handful of parsley
  • handful of dandelion greens (fresh and clean, not from a fertilized yard!)
  • (optional) ½ bell pepper

Let your juicer or blender grind it up until it’s a liquid. Adding more apples can make it sweeter if that helps.


We Are Not Done Yet! Here are some more helpful healthy ideas.

At this point in the process the acne sufferer is just dying to get their hands on their skin. DON’T! The more a person touches the face the worse it will be. The world is full of dirt, grease and other substances to aggravate the face. Friends and relatives should be recruited to help remind a person every time the face is being touched. Eventually the habit can be broken.

As a matter of hygiene, wash with a mild non-perfumed soap. The ruff grinder soaps will actually make acne worse and subject the skin to infection. After cleaning apply tea tree oil or apple cider vinegar on a rotating basis. The face should be washed four times per day. Wash in the morning, mid day/after school, before dinner and just before bedtime. Also make sure pillow cases are clean at all times. Bacteria loves to wait for a person to return to bed.

Another tool in the fight against acne is the use of TEA TREE OIL. It can be purchased cheaply at any health food outlet and is very effective in topical form.

During the Summer, take plenty of time to swim in the pool. The chlorine in pool water does a lot to clear the skin. At first it will draw out whiteheads. Eventually, the skin will clear, provided you continue to follow the above advice.

A Final Word

Stress also causes acne inflammation along with a lot of other health problems. Stress management is beyond the scope of this article but its importance should not be discounted. It is recommended that the acne sufferer review their stress inventory and speak with a counselor if necessary to deal with stress.
