The Importance of Water to Combat Acne
Lots of filtered water will help remove toxins from your body.
Our liver also processes the fats and oils in our diet. The types of fats we eat also influence our skin health. To put it simply, a diet rich in saturated fats creates sebum that is thick, viscous, easily blocking the pores and even irritating the skin. In contrast, essential fatty acids are an excellent skin food, encouraging the skin to heal, soothing it and it has even been suggested that they can help dissolve blockages in the pores.
Many other nutrients play an important role when treating an acneic skin. Zinc, Vitamin C and Vitamin D encourage the skin to heal quickly, reducing the possibility of scarring. Acne can also be a sign of deficiency of potassium, Vitamin B6 or Zinc so it is important to eat foods rich in these elements to eliminate this as a possible cause.
All of these lovely nutrients are useless if our bodies are incapable of digesting them. If you suffer from flatulence or indigestion, this can mean an enzyme supplement is also necessary.
