Believe it or not, what you ingest will eventually show on your face. Toxins from the foods we eat are processed, not only by our filtering glands, but through the skin as well.
When we eat vegetables and fruits, or the juices of them, it detoxes us at a cellular level, cleansing the skin from the inside-out. The vitamins and minerals that are absorbed into the bloodstream are delivered to each cell of the body, ending up in the cells of our skin.
When we ingest large amounts caffeine, artificial additives or other chemicals that our bodies are not used to ingesting, they become toxins which have to be filtered. This often results in digestive problems, and eventually blemishes and pimples. Foods high in grease can lead to an oily complexion, leaving some constantly having to check for shiny spots on their skin.
As we get older, what we do not ingest enough of also shows on our skin. Lack of vitamin D presents itself as liver spots, and other skin spots. Lack of vitamin E and A reduces the elasticity in our skin, leaving wrinkles, and dry, cracked skin.
The best way to combat this is to the make the dietary changes necessary to give your skin a chance to fight blemishes before they start.
Smoothies with fruits and vegetables are one way to keep your system and your skin clean. A proper mixture of dark leafy greens, beta carotine, and other vitamin and mineral rich fruits will keep your system detoxed and give your skin the chance it needs to clear up and maintain its elasticity.
Fresh raw juices from a home juicer are also your best bet. The pure unadulterated form of fruit and vegetable juices not only wash toxins from your body, they also give you an energy boost as well.
So remember, the next time you feel like having a snack, grab an apple, banana or orange, because even your skin needs a fighting chance.
