Clear skin naturally with fresh foods and herbs

Beauty comes from within. Heavy foods may cause acne, and by the same token, fresh and real foods can actually help clear up skin, keeping it healthy, moist, and supple.

Learn how to clear skin naturally with fresh foods and herbs:

Coconut oil:

This healthy oil is a natural moisturizer. It has antifungal, antimicrobial, and antibacterial properties, which get rid of toxins and bacteria on the skin and make it clearer. It is also full of antioxidants, which provide anti-aging benefits.

Cucumbers:

They can heal and clear up skin when used internally or externally. Eating cucumbers is great for the skin because they are full of water (about 95% water) to moisturize the skin, and have anti-inflammatory properties, which keep skin clear.

Honey:

It gets rid of pimples and disinfects skin. Try a DIY mask with honey to help heal and brighten up skin from the outside.

Lemons:

The acids in lemons have antibacterial properties that can help remove germs from the skin and can remove dead skin cells. Simply slice open a lemon and rub it on areas of your face that need to be cleared.

Mint:

Because of mint’s antimicrobial and antiseptic properties, it makes a great face cleanser, and is often used in cosmetic products.

Turmeric:

This superstar spice can help lighten blemishes and get rid of sun spots and age spots. Try our DIY turmeric skin brightener mask.
