Skin Care Comes from the Inside Out
.... Not From the Outside!



Acne vulgaris (or cystic acne) is a common human skin disease, characterized by areas of scaly red skin, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and possibly scarring.

Acne results from an excess accumulation of dirt and sebum around the hair follicle and the pores of the skin. This leads to inflammation and infection around the hair follicle and the formation of a pimple or a pus-filled blackhead.





    What Causes Acne?

  • Poor eating habits: Eating nutrient deficient food can be the root cause for all types of acne. Irregular hours of eating. Excessive starch consumption. Too much sugar, fried and fatty foods.
  • Processed foods: Including all junk foods, refined foods (white flour, white sugar, and other refined sugars), processed meats (deli foods), unsaturated fats, margarine and other fake foods, and commercial meat, poultry, and dairy products which contain chemicals and hormones.
  • Chronic constipation: If the bowels do not move properly, waste matter is not eliminated as quickly as it should be and the bloodstream becomes surcharged with toxic matter.
  • Parasites: Acne is sometimes caused by microscopic roundworms living in the skin
  • Dirt, bacteria, and natural facial oils that build up and create inflammation
  • Stress and hormones can also be a factor.

Natural - Chemical-Free - Solutions for Acne

Eat Right To Prevent & Eliminate Acne
Acne is the word every teen hates but may faces this challenge during their teen years.
What you put in your mouth can make all the difference in whether or not you have active or inactive acne. Foods that cause internal inflammation are the same foods that exaggerate skin and acne breakouts. Properly balanced foods are essential for fighting and preventing skin outbreaks.



Eliminate Fast food:
It’s easy to avoid fast food
places with young children.
You simply do NOT go there.
Focus emphasis on teaching kids
how to make healthy eating fast,
convenient and easy.


Eat Nutrient-Dense Foods:
Nutrient-Dense Foods have a high
nutrient/calorie ratio. They are rich
in nutrients when compared to their
calorie content.

    Examples:
  • One cup of strawberries contains only 150 calories, 3.5g fiber, a massive 86mg of vitamin C and a useful 26.9mcg of folate.
  • One piece of healthy baked chicken has more calories than a snack bag of chips.
Eat Low-Glycemic Foods
New studies show diets containing low glycemic
loads may not only improve insulin sensitivity
and helps reduce weight but clears up acne as
well. Add more fresh veggies such as celery,
carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, green pepper,
green beans, cucumbers and mushrooms.

"Chill" on ther Sugar-laden foods
Inflammation-causing foods are those that trigger a rapid rise in blood-sugar levels. When this happens, the pancreas gland excretes insulin. The insulin lowers the blood-sugar levels back to a healthy range, but in the process, the body experiences inflammation.

You can avoid inflammation by simply not eating the foods that cause this rapid rise in blood-sugar levels. Foods that are low on the glycemic index are the best for you to eat. High-glycemic foods are the worst for you to eat.

What Can I Eat?
Since your digestive system is closely related with the health of your skin, quality food should help reduce acne breakouts and help your skin heal faster. Sometimes, all your body needs is the right nutritional balance and proper skin care. Following a well-balanced diet with emphasis on raw foods, especially fresh fruit and vegetables, sprouted seeds, raw nuts, and whole grain cereals, particularly millet and brown rice. You may notice a BIG difference in your skin in as little as 2-4 weeks.

Proper skin care makes a difference! Your skin is one of the most powerful indicators of health. Wrinkles, dry or oily skin, acne, and inflammation all are signs of poor internal health, often brought on by consuming unhealthful foods and avoiding skin-healthy nutrients.

After all, skin is the body’s largest organ, but it’s often taken for granted. Most people ignore their skin until they notice acne breakouts or signs of aging, a wrinkle or an age spot. Healthy looking skin should be a top priority!

Will Creams Help Eliminate Acne?
Many teenagers are wooed by the TV and website commercials that make big claims about creams, lotions and potions that just magically clear up acne and other skin challenges. NOT!

Teenagers who suffer from acne go out and spend good money on common over-the-counter acne treatment products. The truth is, most of these products are full of chemicals that can actually slow down the healing of acne, and irritate your skin, causing farther breakouts.

Cosmetic and Acne Formula Chemicals
There are many well-known side-effects associated with chemicals used on skin to eliminate acne, including: Birth defects, depression and headaches.
Magnesium aluminum silicate, Benzoyl Peroxide, glyceryl stearate, PEG-100 stearate, disodium dimethicone copolyol sulfosuccinate, sorbitol, dimethyl isosorbide, polyethylene, tridecyl stearate, neopentyl glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate, tridecyl trimellitate, cetyl esters, sodium hyaluronate, sodium PCA, propylene glycol, xanthan gum, imidazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben, tetracycline, Accutane,

Consider these skin facts:
  • An adult’s skin comprises between 15 and 20 percent of total body weight.
  • Each square centimeter of skin has 6 million cells, 5,000 sensory points, 100 sweat glands and 15 sebaceous glands.
  • Skin is constantly being regenerated. Your skin cells are created in the lower layer of the skin called the dermis. The dermis is a busy place, full of nerve endings and sweat glands, hair follicles and capillaries. Capillaries transmit nutrition to the cells in the dermis and they help the skin to perform an important cooling function. The epidermis is the outside layer, providing a barrier to the body. The epidermis has no direct blood supply, but instead is supported and fed by the dermis.

    Skin cells migrate upward from the dermis to the epidermis. Each cell spends about two weeks in the epidermis, where it eventually flattens out and moves toward the surface. There, it dies and is shed. You lose two to three billion skin cells EVERY DAY! The body works hard to create a strong, healthy skin barrier, capable of protecting against dehydration, infection, or toxins in the environment.

    Skin cells can detoxify harmful substances with many of the same enzymatic processes the liver uses. However, poor diet, drugs, alcohol, excessive sun exposure, environmental toxins and tobacco smoke increase free radical activity and age your skin, creating wrinkles, discoloration, saggy skin, and a dull complexion. As your skin is weakened, its ability to protect you is also diminished.

    What Can I Do NOW To Create Visible Improvement?

    Use Chemical-free and Petroleum-free Skin Care Products
    A nourishing skin care ritual is important to creating an appearance which is vibrant and healthy. Your skin care products should contain natural, active ingredients. Plant extracts and vitamin-derived antioxidants are rarely irritating and can actually improve your skin health. Stay away from soaps and detergents (like sodium lauryl sulfate and cocamide DEA) which are harsh on skin and can be toxic.

    Avoid Sun Damage
    Avoiding sun damage is the single best thing you can do for your skin. But, even wrinkles and discoloration respond to vitamin supplements and healing foods, along with a nourishing skin care regimen. And always drink plenty of water. Proper hydration is important, not just for your skin, but for overall good health.

    Nourish And Protect Your Skin
    Daily skin care makes the difference. Just as daily exercise and proper nutrition contribute to physical fitness, proper skin treatment can create a visible improvement in your appearance. Some beauty products merely mask problem skin, while others actually work to repair the damage caused by aging, stress, poor nutrition and environmental toxins. Skin care products with Aloe vera, vitamins, antioxidants and plant botanicals nourish your skin, rejuvenating your body’s largest organ.
