A lot of people that have to deal with acne realize that many of the problems that they experience with their skin are directly related to anything that they eat. Eating things that are too acidic or that contain too much sugar can actually cause us to break out even worse than normal. Along with that, it is also necessary for us to cleanse our body in certain ways in order to get rid of the acne altogether. I’m not talking about washing our skin, something that many of us do religiously in an attempt to clear up the problem, I’m talking about cleansing ourselves internally.
Actually, eating properly and cleansing our body go hand-in-hand, more than you might realize. When most of us think about internal cleanses, we consider fasting and other harsh methods that are difficult to stick to but generally have great results. Actually, if you are able to eat raw fruit and vegetables on a daily basis, you’re going to be cleansing your body just the same as if you are fasting. Although the results will not be as dramatic, getting back to the basics in the way that we eat and making sure that we are getting plenty of raw food in our diet is going to go a long way in helping us with our skin.
One of the reasons why it is preferable to cleanse with raw food than with a more radical method is because we are going to detox more slowly. If we have a problem with acne, that is a sign that we have toxins built up on the inside of our body. The last thing that we would want to do is to release those toxins to quickly through an internal cleanse. By eating raw foods, we will be cleansing our body but we will be doing so more slowly. This will allow us to get rid of the toxins without having the negative side effects of cleansing which includes additional problems with our skin.
Of course, after you are able to cleanse yourself with raw foods for some time you may want to also consider doing one of the other cleanses that are available. It is important for you to build your way up to it, however, and to make sure that your body is ready before you do anything that may be considered harsh.
