Healthy Skin: Prebiotics are a Must

Top dollar for a “miracle cure” cream or lotion is what many people opt into. However a healthy-looking skin does not have to be tied to an expensive skin care product. Your way out could be in your fridge!

Fruits and vegetables in your diet are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. A variety of them in your daily diet is a great way to get clear skin. If you throw in some nuts and seeds then you are already on you way to fabulous looking skin. Whether you choose to make a tasty smoothie with ripe fruit or eat at least one salad per day, these are perfect options to clear up your skin. A handful of Brazil nuts and pumpkin seeds on your salad would add more selenium and zinc that work against the deficiencies of vitamins and minerals in your body that often cause acne.

Drinking plenty of water is another way to maintain a healthy-looking skin. By drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses per day the skin becomes rehydrated and the dead skin cells are shed opening up your pores and clearing up your acne. Your skin will look fresher and cleaner then ever before, and you can expect your acne disappear in just a few short days after starting the water treatment.

One more way to clear up your skin is by adding a high quality prebiotic food to your diet. Prebiotics are especially vital to your healthy gut flora and your total body health, If you are currently on any antibiotics for your acne. Antibiotics are destroying the friendly bacteria in your digestive system leads to poor digestion and constipation, plus they deplete your body of essential vitamins and minerals that are causing more acne because the toxins are being expelled from your skin rather than through waste.

Therefore, you may look great for a little while but the acne will come back unless you replace the friendly bacteria with prebiotic foods that feed that bacteria and allows it to multiply. It is easy to add fresh fruit and vegetables to your daily diet so that you can effectively clear up your acne.

With simple daily regimen of fresh produce, water, and prebiotic foods you can take control over your acne problem. Simple step like eating a variety of fruit and veggies that are a rich pantry of minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and organic acids, shall make a huge change in your looks. And how you feel.
