Helping Our Skin

Acne is such a pain.  I don’t know of very many people that haven’t had a problem with it at some point in their life.  I know I had a problem with it and remember having to go to the dermatologist when I was in high school.

There are some things we can do to help our skin, whether we have acne or not, such as eating:

  • a healthy, high-fiber diet
  • raw fruits and veggies
  • almonds and cashews which contain oxalic acid
  • whole grains
  • sunflower seeds
  • grapes, strawberries, and pineapple because they’re high in alpha-hydroxy acids

Drinking eight glasses of water per day is great, too.

A lot of people use topical solutions to help their skin.  Some people work on blackhead removal.  Whatever they use, they should research various products to find what works for them.
