When it comes to the question of how to get rid of blackheads and pimples, most individuals assume that the best way to go is to use over the counter products and washes. The acne industry thrives on the sale of such products. Yet, what most don’t realize is that by using all of the harsh, industrial chemical-laden washes, drugs, creams, etc., they are only making things worse without addressing the root problems. Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it’s condition can be very telling of your internal health. Over the counter products usually do nothing to solve the internal problems, but certainly dry out and irritate the skin well. This in turn causes more pimples and more blackheads to form.
As acne is caused by systemic inflammation, the best way to fight it is to stay healthy. The biggest factor in maintaining a bullet-proof, inflammation-fighting immunity is your diet. An acne fighting diet should be composed of copious amounts of colorful and varied vegetables and fruits; particularly berries. In addition, natural, clean animal products such as grass fed meat, wild caught fish, eggs, butter, fermented foods (especially kefir, sugarfree/natural yogurt, quality cheese) should all be consumed as well. Because excess carb and sugar consumption, as well as all of the processed, artificial fats and chemicals found in modern, “food products” are responsible for western health problems such as diabetes, obesity, and yes, acne, it is important to eliminate them completely.
