Eat your way to beautiful skin


| 4 Comments
      Whether your going to admit it or not, we've all had that pesky pimple that ruins our day.  You've tried everything from the cream, ointment, spot treatment, face mask, and scrub, but nothing seems to be the solution.  Girls can turn to cosmetics, while guys can turn to hoods, but at the end of the day that pimple is still there, so throw away the makeup and creams, and simply turn to food.  
      So when given wheat or white bread to choose from, your most likely going to pick white

 due to its fluffy and enjoyable nature.  But maybe you should think again.  Whole grains are actually one of the best foods for your skin.  Whole grains are filled with antioxidants which fight skin damage, and prevent new blemishes from forming.  Along with whole grains, nuts are also very good for your skin because they are packed with vitamin E and antioxidants.  This is very beneficial because it helps lock in moisture  and protects the skin from UV ray damage. 
      Whole grains and nuts are know to be good for both your body and your skin, but there are also some foods that have tremendous benefits to your skin that you may not even be aware of.   For example, goat milk is excellent for your skin because it is known to be a "natural loofa" and take off dead skin.  On top of that, it also supplies a great source of vitamin A and E, which provide great benefits to the skin and body.
      So the moral of the story is not to go chug goat milk to get rid of that zit, but maybe substitute wheat for white bread, or pop some nuts throughout the day.  Regardless, throw out every zit cream you've ever purchased because it's not going to work.  A simple change in your diet could be the answer to all your prayers.

I don't have "bad" skin, but like any girl, I get a few pimples here and there. To me, even one pimple can feel like the end of the world, so I thought this article was very helpful. I never buy wheat bread, but now that I know it has both health benefits and skin benefits, I'm definitely throwing out my white loaf! I can't drink milk, but I was shocked to find out the benefits that goat milk has over the regular milk most people drink every single day. I feel like girls especially are always willing to try the latest acne product, but never willing to look for other options. This blog post is a great alternative, thanks for the tips!

This blog really stuck out to me, partly because I'm a girl and what's better to learn about than new ways to keeping a smooth face? I will definitely eat more whole grain foods now. I use AcneFree and I love it! I think everyone should try it. Here's a commercial on it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4S3tEdtcpuw

Like Kara said, I do not have bad skin, just the occasional stubborn pimple. I am so interested to test out what whole grains can do for my skin! I've been eating whole wheat pasta and whole grain breads lately so I wonder if I will notice a difference now that I am aware of the benefits. I am also curious to see what goat milk can do, even though I am a little nervous to see how it tastes. Here are also a few foods to recognize are bad for your skin:

I have always heard about how different foods can affect your skin and this article peaked my curiosity even more! I know that fatty, oily foods can cause your skin to break out. I am very happy to hear that nuts and whole grains can help your skin because I eat a lot of them! It's so interesting how something like eating could affect your skin! I did some more research on foods that are/aren't good for your skin and came across this article from the Huffington Post. I found it really interesting!
