While it is true that what you eat helps determine your health saying what you eat causes acne is a myth.
Think about the times when acne is most common:
- Baby acne
- Menstrual cycle
- Adult acne – often during menopause or when under a lot of stress
The ONLY thing ALL of the above have in common is each and every one of them is a time when the body’s hormones are out of balance.
Your liver cleans and detoxifies your blood but at times of hormone overload it cannot keep up and your body will experience problems you don’t usually have.
A healthy diet that gives your liver and the rest of your body the minerals and vitamins they need to operate at their best will help minimize the affects of the hormonal imbalance but it isn’t realistic to expect no changes when your body is stressed.
I hear some of you men saying: “I don’t have the hormone swings kids and women have.” You DO have hormonal swings. When you engage in active sports that are competitive, your testosterone levels will rise. As you reach a certain stage of life, your testosterone levels will naturally fall.
Some men and women live highly stressed lives which can affect hormone levels and the ability of your liver to handle these hormonal changes will depend on your overall health.
Your acne, pimples, zits or whatever you choose to call them are created when your body cannot cleanse itself of the toxins and excess skin oil that creates a breeding ground that allows them to form.
The cause of acne is NOT food or some of the other myths you’ve heard but it is your hormones.
You can treat your acne with an array of commercial products or home remedies. Not all home remedies work for everyone and some even damage the skin instead of clearing up the acne. You might want to consider a product called acne free in 3 days because it has information that has been successfully used by others.Disclosure of Material Connection
