Food Cure for Acne

Postby Bhavna_patel480 » Thu Mar 02, 2017 1:06 pm

If you think that pizza and chocolate are the culprits behind acne breakouts, you may be out of line. In most cases, the cause of acne is either hereditary or hormonal. During puberty, a surge in androgen – a hormone which is present in men as well as women – causes an increase in sebum and keratin production. Sebum prevents drying up of skin and keratin is necessary for hair growth. When there is excessive sebum production, it clogs the pores present on our skin, leading to ACNE.
Contrary to popular belief, eating pizza or excessive cheese doesn’t have any adverse effect on acne. But if you eat more fruits and vegetables and other foods which fight inflammation you will be able to make a significant difference to your pimply skin.

Read on to find out what your FOOD PRESCRIPTION for acne is:

Food Rich in Zinc

Pumping up oral zinc intake helps put a brake on breakouts. Zinc helps to control the release of male hormones that jump-off acne. Zinc also helps in increasing the absorption of Vitamin A, which is another nutrient responsible for healthy skin.

Oysters, chicken, fish, spinach, mushrooms and beans are rich sources of zinc.

Selenium

Brazil nuts and other foods rich in selenium help improve acne by protecting cells from inflammatory damage and preserving skin’s elasticity. One Brazil nut delivers a full day’s supply of selenium. Other foods rich in selenium are meat, fish, poultry, onions, garlic and whole grains. Selenium works particularly well when it’s accompanied by vitamins E and A. So make sure you pop in a few almonds along with Brazil nuts for best results.

Carrots, bell peppers and other orange-yellow coloured fruits and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables which are orange or yellow coloured are rich in beta-carotene. (For example carrots, pumpkin, mango, oranges etc.) Beta-carotene gets converted to Vitamin A in the body – which is a necessary nutrient that enhances skin health.
Oranges, Tomatoes, Strawberries and Melons

These juicy vitamin C bombs won’t cure you of break outs, but because this vitamin strengthens cell walls, it can help protect your skin from scarring that blemishes can cause. Bioflavanoids, which are often present in fruits and vegetables rich in Vitamin C, are natural anti-inflammatories and enhance the healing action of vitamin C.

Vitamin E rich foods

The antioxidant Vitamin E helps skin heal from damage and scarring caused from acne. Almonds, eggs and leafy greens are rich in Vitamin E. Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin and that is why it is not easy to get a lot of E from low-fat diets. In order to maximise Vitamin E absorption from food, you must couple it with a little fat, example when you eat kale or spinach make sure you drizzle some olive oil on top.

Omega-3 fatty acids

Skin specialists say that omega-3 fatty acids, which help keep inflammation under control, helps keep acne under wraps. Fatty fish like sardines, salmon, mackerel, flaxseeds and walnuts – all boast of omega-3 fatty acids. Sprinkle flaxseeds and toasted walnuts on your salads, cereals and casseroles to get that much-needed omega-3 boost.

The main Cause of acne is a male hormone - Testosterone. Raised testosterone level causes more oily secretions from the skin glands of skin. Oily secretion causes obstruction of the duct of this glands leads to growing up of bacteria, ultimately develop acne. Acne commonly affects teenagers, young adults and in some diseased condition like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Some drugs may causes acne like Corticosteroids, Lithium etc.

1) Avoiding oily foods:

Oily foods almost all types of fast foods are indirectly responsible for acne. We doctors find good results advising to avoid oily foods in patients with acne.

2) Green leafy vegetables:

Green leafy vegetables are full of minerals, folic acid and fiber. Folic acid has great role in the synthesis of blood cells from bone marrow. White blood cells (WBC) acts by killing microorganisms and providing immunity. Taking abundant fiber is a good solution for the constipated persons.

3) Antioxidants containing foods:

Vitamin E, C & A are called nobble antioxidant. Antioxidants keep you refresh by preventing aging process and also keep role in the prevention of infections & restoration of function of infected organ.
Vitamin E containing foods are - Milk, Almonds oil, Sea fish oil, Sunflower oil. Or you can find it in medication- Vitamin E (alpha-tochopherol) 200/400 IU capsule once or twice daily for 1-2 months are may be effective for you. It also make your skin shiny and prevent hair loss.
Vitamin C containing foods are - citrous foods like lemon, capsicum, orange etc. It also keep you away from urinary tract infection.
Vitamin A containing foods - small fish, milk, egg, carrots etc. It can improves your skin function by reepithelization and shedding out of old cells.


4)Maintenance of personal Hygiene:

Washing face with well face-wash cream or lotions before getting sleep and after awaking or after coming from outer world is very much important for you.

5) Control your sun exposure:

Exposure to sunlight 2-3 hours daily is essential to our body for the synthesis of Vitamin D. But too much exposure can burn your superficial layer of skin and can make your skin dark, also a factor that stimulate oily secretions (sebum) from your skin. You can use sunscreen cream before hangout in the beach or elsewhere in hot weather.

6) Medications:

You can take some medications to resolve your problem more quicker comparing with foods. Doxycycline 100/200 mg capsule 1-2 times daily for 1 month is very much helpful for you.

Let's get real here . . .
Those who hold the allopathic medical model as their health paradigm have it wrong.

Acne shows that your kidneys aren't filtering properly. Most everyone has kidneys that aren't filtering enough. Your skin is your third kidney. If your kidneys are not filtering out the metabolic wastes, then when the body can't hold in the waste anymore, it gets pushed out through the skin.

It's this simple — clean up the fuel you put into your body.

Yes. It's amazing about how truth is simple, and how man complicates things when he doesn't look at the whole picture.

[drink] - Milk,


The main cause of acne is a backed up lymphatic system.

Milk, and milk products, are the worst offenders for causing mucus in the system. DON'T take milk products if you want clearer skin.

Eating more omega-3 fatty acids, such as those found in fatty fish, walnuts, flaxseed, and the like, can help tame inflammation and improve acne breakouts. Green tea: Green tea is filled the antioxidants that can protect from environmental stress.

Also, you can take an adequate dose of vitamin A and C just to prevent marks brought by Acne. This is based on my experience and you can take this as a precautionary step to have a good and healthy skin.

The cause or trigger of acne is different for different people. I agree that in some cases, genetics play and hormones play a factor. With that said, dairy did exacerbate my acne. But what made a huge difference was when I cut back (and mostly eliminated) wheat (bread, pasta, etc). That stopped my cystic acne almost overnight.

I'm left with the scars but green juice and lots of water is helping significantly with that.
