In this video, I break down the top foods you should be eating and supplements you should be taking to get rid of acne. I also cover the best face washes to use for clean, healthy skin and what foods you MUST get out of your diet immediately if you want to get rid of your acne.
Causes of Acne:
-One of the leading causes of acne today is the buildup of bad bacteria, yeast, and candida in the gut and digestive tract.
-Taking antibiotic drugs and birth control pills, drinking chlorinated and fluorinated water, and consuming excess sugar can increase the growth of bad bacteria, yeast, and candida within the body.
Secret 1 to Get Rid of Acne Naturally:
1. Remove sugar, which feeds yeast and candida. Also reduce fruit intake.
Replace with Stevia, a calorie-free, sugar-free, all-natural sweetener or raw honey, a healthy, natural sweetener.
Consume berries in moderation.
2. Remove grains, especially gluten, which causes inflammation of the intestinal tract. Healing the gut will clear the skin.
Replace with gluten-free grains, such as coconut flour and almond flour.
3. Remove hydrogenated oils, which increase the amount of oils in the sebaceous glands of the skin.
Replace with healthy fats, such as coconut oil.
Secret 2 to Get Rid of Acne Naturally:
1. High-Fiber Foods
-Fiber helps to reduce bad bacteria and increase good bacteria (probiotics) in the gut.
-The best sources of fiber are:
a. Sprouted Nuts and Seeds (flaxseeds, chia seeds, almonds)
2. High-Quality Protein
-Protein helps balance blood sugar levels to rid acne.
-The best sources of high-quality protein are:
a. Organic Chicken and Turkey
b. Grass-Fed Beef
c. Wild-Caught Fish

3. Healthy Fats

A great way to include healthy fiber, protein, and fat into your diet is by consuming a superfood shake for breakfast that includes:
-sprouted flax or chia seeds
-organic protein powder
Secret 3 to Get Rid of Acne Naturally:
-Probiotics kill off bad bacteria in the gut and help boost the immune system.
-80% of the immune system is located in the gut.
-Consume probiotic-rich foods, such as:
a. Cultured Vegetables
-Look for 50 billion IU’s daily in a probiotic supplement.
-Zinc helps to repair the gut lining and naturally boost the immune system.
