If you suffer from acne rosacea--a skin condition that causes red rashes or pustules to appear around the cheeks nose, chin and forehead--there are medications that can be prescribed by a dermatologist to help keep it under control. However, if it is not a severe case of acne rosacea there is also a natural and easy way to cure it just by drinking juice.
Why can juice help acne rosacea?
Spicy foods, foods high in caffeine or foods high in sugar can cause acne rosacea. These foods can cause redness or breakouts because these foods can dilate blood vessels or increase hormone levels, which can cause oil glands to secrete oil that clogs pores. Drinking natural juice can quickly and effectively minimize these effects because it pumps vitamins, minerals, enzymes and citric acid quickly into your blood stream. Drinking juice can cleanse your body of toxins, balance the pH levels in your body, unclog pores and eliminate free radicals from your system.
If you suffer from acne rosacea you should try to drink at least 2 glasses of juice a day. You should also drink plenty of water to flush out your system. The recommended amount is eight glasses a day. Try to use organic fruit if you decide to make your juice because it will contain more minerals, vitamins and live enzymes. If you decide to buy juice, then purchase the organic juice at retailers such as Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s.
What juices can cure acne rosacea?
One of the best juices to drink is lemon juice. Lemon juice is high in vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant. Combined with water it will flush toxins out of the body due to the high level of citric acid.
Drinking cucumber juice will also reduce redness caused by acne rosacea. Cucumber is high in alkaline minerals and full of water so it calms and cools the redness of the skin quickly.
Cherry juice is also great for curing acne because it is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C and minerals that remove toxins from the blood. Apple juice, orange juice, apricot juice, melon juice and grapefruit juice also contain a large amount of vitamins and minerals that act as antioxidants that will cleanse the intestine, liver, and exfoliate your skin.
