Tired of struggling with products that claim to fix your acne? Craving clear, glowing skin? Then it’s time to ditch all those so called cures, and look within when it comes to clearing up your acne. Maybe all your body really needs is a little self-care and a fresh perspective. Here are a few ways you can take an all-natural approach to healthy, acne-free skin.
You are what you eat
We’ve said it before, but you know we are big believers in healing your body from the inside out. So start saying goodbye to acne with a few updates to your diet. Start with eating an organic, plant-based foods From pesticides to processed food, you’ll eliminate all sorts of acne-causing toxins from your body. Also consider saying no to dairy (cow’s milk pumped full of hormones is a no-no), and try a five-day juice cleanse specifically designed to help with acne.
Two words: drink water
When we don’t drink enough water, toxins, bodily waste, and germs stay trapped in our skin with no way out. Simply put, if you don’t drink water, you are just inviting the acne in! Drinking water is a great way to keep your skin as healthy as possible by keeping those toxins out. Dehydration can also cause additional damage to your skin and contribute to aging.
Get some rest
Sleep has such a significant impact on our bodies. Getting 7-8 hours of shuteye helps your body with the natural detoxing process. And don’t forget to change your pillowcase on a regular basis. Your pillowcase picks up oils and dirt from your skin and hair...yuck. So sleeping on a dirty pillowcase can actually cause acne.
All-natural skincare products designed for acne-prone skin are serious game changers. They not only fight the acne you have, but heal your skin in the process. Look for those that offer the bacteria-fighting power of tea tree, eucalyptus, mistletoe and clary sage.
