7 Natural Ways To Get Rid Of Acne
Moving to another country can be a very stressful event in your life. Adjusting to a new community, new habits and new food can clearly impact your health. That’s what happened to me three years ago, when I moved from Barcelona, my home town, to the United States. I gained weight, and acne suddenly broke out all over my face for the first time, even though I was in my early 20s!
I'd always had porcelain skin in my teens; there was never a pimple or even a freckle on my face, so I felt kind of desperate. I visited general doctors and dermatologists, and tried many over-the-counter gels and prescribed lotions, which never worked. I finally decided to find the solution within myself, because I realized I'd neglected to listen to my body. It was craving self-care, love and “Me Time.”
I decided to incorporate new habits into my daily routine, and I made some changes in my diet. With patience and perseverance, I got that clear skin back in a few months!
Here are some of my tips for you:
Follow an organic, plant-based diet.
Try a juice detox.
A short juice-based cleansing treatment will enhance and accelerate the detoxification process. Try drinking juice every morning for at least five days, and stick to wholesome foods for lunch and dinner, mainly fresh vegan salads.
The ingredients for my staple juice are:
- 2 celery stalks,
- ½ cucumber,
- 2 apples,
- 1 kale leaf
- 1 ginger chunk
- Some cilantro
