Get Clean and Clear Skin with These Valuable Tips
Fortunately or unfortunately, our face is the first thing noticed by people. This is the reason why people especially women prefer having flawless skin. Trying different face creams and other skincare products does not always prove effective. The change should start from within. Let’s look at some valuable tips to get clean and clear skin.
Evaluate your diet
Try to keep a journal for food and write down daily what you eat. After one week, check the journal and evaluate your eating pattern. Ask a few questions yourself- are you eating a balanced diet? Are you eating food rich in vitamin E and antioxidants? Is real and whole foods part of your diet plan? If the answer to these questions is no, then you should probably start doing it the next day.
Moreover, keeping track of your diet will help you in deciding, which food you are allergic to. For instance, sometimes gluten protein in wheat can cause acne and blemishes in persons suffering from gluten allergies. Try to switch to a gluten-free diet. Similarly, you can judge and shift the food you are allergic to.
Furthermore, completely stay away from junk or fried foods. Try eating boiled vegetables rather than fried ones. Do not go for packaged food. They contain several toxic preservatives, which can directly affect your skin by causing rashes and acne.
Focus on balancing foods rich in fibre such as cruciferous vegetables, chia seeds and dark leafy green veggies.
Say no to milk
Avoid buffalo or cow’s milk as they contain high levels of fat. If needed, you can go with almond and rice milk. This milk is known to flush out excess hormones that are the root cause of several skin problems including acne.
Drink Lemon Juice
You can stimulate liver function by drinking lemon water on an empty stomach every day. Lemon juice can also be applied to the skin directly. This can remove the tanned skin and kill the bacteria present on your skin. Moreover, it is also effective in fighting acne and nodules. You can also take 1-2 teaspoons of liquid chlorophyll in water.
Drink lots of Water
Hydration is very important for clean and glowing skin. Drink at least two litres of water every day. If drinking pure water is difficult for you, you can make lemonade, watermelons, cucumbers and sugar-free juices as well.
Consume Magnesium and Vitamin E-rich food
Magnesium-rich foods such as figs, brown rice and oatmeal help to balance hormones that can cause skin problems. Vitamin E can be obtained via nuts, leafy vegetables and eggs.
Avoid Harsh Chemicals
Clear skin is not only the result of what we eat, it is also the result of what we apply. Always check the skin care products for any harsh chemicals before purchasing. Try to use natural or ayurvedic products as long as possible.
