Hey Berry Fitters,
Today’s post will be about something everyone has had to fight at least some point in their life. What would that be you ask? Acne. There are millions of people every year that struggle with keep their skin clear and healthy. Whether its using those heavily advertised beauty products to even the home-remedy of toothpaste. But what if I told you that there was an easier way? A way where all you had to do was eat the right kinds of foods! Lets’s take a look at some of the foods that help fight against acne:
Eat Foods that are High in Fiber:
Fiber rich foods improve the digestion system in your body, which eventually keeps your skin healthy. Poor digestion, on the other hand, encourages the build-up of toxins in your body which eventually causes inflammation, and horrible-looking skin. The longer these toxins stay in your body, the more stubborn acne you will be facing. Even though drinking plenty of water daily can be very helpful in washing these toxins away, eating fiber-rich foods have added advantages. Fiber-rich foods keep your digestive tract healthy and also keep the pores of your skin clean. I would strongly recommended to include fiber supplements, plenty of vegetables, nuts and seeds and other fiber-rich foods in your diet plan on a regular basis. Another great thing about these foods is that they are at virtually every grocery store and they generally come very cheap.
Eat foods that contain Omega-3 Fatty Acids:
In the first look, using omega-3 fatty acids to treat acne sounds strange because it is oil – a fat. But, it is very important for you to understand that the sources of Omega-3 fatty acids include the flesh of deepwater fishes. Therefore, where cooked vegetable oils can agitate your acne problems. Omega-3 actually cures and improves your overall health. When you consume it regularly in your diet, you can experience a very noticeable in your acne within just a couple of weeks. Alternatively, you can consider taking omega-3 fatty acids in the form of nutritional supplements which we offer here at Berry Fit Lifestyle.
Drinking Green Tea:
One thing you might not of thought of was Green Tea helping fight acne! However Green Tea comes with a lot of benefits such as: It is 50% more effective than benzoyl peroxide at treating acne, it contains 6 active catechins which includes epicatechin gallate, epigallocatechin, epicatechin, gallocatechin, epigallocatenin – 3 gallate or EGCG that prevent cell damage, reduce irritation, inflammation and protect against the free radicals that cause acne (who would of thought?), and it also contains anti – oxidants, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), tocopherols (vitamin E), carotenoids (vitamin A), selenium, zinc, manganese, and chromium, which are essential to healthy skin! so what are you waiting for?
