For Effective Acne Treatment, Eat these Fruits   
by Foras Aje

It's been said in the drugless fraternity that "you are what you eat". Fruit is also highly esteemed as a helpful near panacea for a plethora of human ailments. Well let's see which ones are helpful for skin disorders, namely acne.

-Apples -"Remember the saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away". Well It could mean keeps the 'dermatologist' away in this case. When in season, (mostly through fall and winter, try to eat 3 - 4 apples a day while working to alleviate acne. Apples are good for skin health. From experience, you are best of eating ONLY organic apples and you could actually get great deals at your local Trader Joe's or Co-Op Stores, or Open Air Farmer's market. Heck, they are usually on sale as a "365" item at Whole foods so they shouldn't be hard to acquire.

-Apricots - These are a summer stone fruit. Eat as many as you like. They are excellent sources of vitamin A, the B-complex vitamins and fiber. As with all fruits, I suggest eating organically grown apricots only for acne treatment.

-Bananas - This fruit needs no introduction, being that it's available year round, and even organically is only 27cents for each one; you've got to at least one banana a day. Dr. Doug Graham, a trainer for several athletes and show-biz stars, goes as far as to saying anywhere between 5-15 of these babies in the afternoon after your physical exertions are extremely excellent. From my experience, they are very useful for combating constipation, which perhaps is the main cause of acne. One more thing, they have been said to have EVERYTHING the human body needs to survive.

-Berries-These are a spring time fruit. This signifies their properties as cleansing items as that period of the year is when nature does a 'clean-house' of some sorts. They help a weak kidney and are good for creating good skin on your face. They are also good for constipation and various skin disorders - eczema, acne, psoriasis

-Cantaloupes - In the summer times, I could live of these or any other melons and be just fine. Being as they are high in vitamin A and C, and have many other minerals, they are good for any type of skin problems

- Cherries - Hey, try squeezing one of this when they are fully ripe. Doesn't the juice resemble one's blood? Needless to say, they are good blood cleansers and help the liver and kidney. They promote regular bowel movements. I will have you know that an exclusive diet of these for 3 plus days can be a very, very effective camouflaged fasts and for acne, it's definitely up there with natural healing substances.

- Figs: As a Mucus-binding (disease Healing Food), they are ranked as the most potent fruit for eliminating debris in the body. They are available in the summer times, but dry figs could be soaked overnight in other periods to re-hydrate them for consumption as they are indeed great overall body healing and building foods.

-Grapefruits - helps to dissolve and eliminate poisons from drugs thus improving the liver function. These, being an acid fruit, are best consumed in the earlier parts of the day. As with all citrus fruits, they are very mucus-binding and cleansing as well.

-Grapes -I don't know about you, but come late summer, I can last for days on Globe Grapes (don't believe in seedless fruits), and suffice it to say that for combating constipation, cleansing and building the blood and body, they are extremely effective items.

-Lemons: Everyone should squeeze lemon in warm water first thing in the morning. They are very alkaline forming, and restore balance to the body. They also help loosen up any debris that fruits and vegetables (with their broom-like qualities) may have loosened up the day before.

Well, truth is you can't go wrong with eating any and a lot of fruits when in season and preferably organically grown to combat acne problems.

If you want to take it to the next level, a juice fast is definitely worth the shot too for a superior acne treatment.

You do have good skin underneath, just feed it with the right substances and you'd see the results for yourself.

Here's to Acne-Free and Clearer skin
