Reduce Toxins – The skin is the largest organ in the human body. It also serves as an organ to remove waste through sweating. If the amount of waste to be discharged exceeds the capacity of both liver and kidney, it will be discharged through the skin. As toxins escape through skin, it disturbs the normalcy of the skin surface causing several disorders to occur, which also include acne. One could avoid processed foods, which contain large doses of sodium and sugar, while increasing the intake of whole foods and water. A diet high in whole foods helps in the up-keep of a healthy digestive system and causes the disposal of toxins through the colon. Drinking water in large amounts also helps in the flushing toxins through the kidneys.
Avoid Topical Oils/ Chemicals- Harsh chemicals, dyes and oils clog the pores and cause acne to increase. Use natural water based products as a soothing alternative.
