Bonus Tips

What can I do if I am suffering from acneic skin?

Acne is typically caused by inflammation and when your sebaceous glands are over stimulated by your hormones, especially androgens. Here are foods to avoid when battling with acneic skin: saturated and hydrogenated fats in margarines, processed foods, and sugar.

What can I do if I have psoriasis?

Psoriasis is no fun and can look scary. They appear as red skin patches with silvery scales, which typically show on the elbows and knees. They can be itchy, sore, crack, and even bleed. Avoid getting sunburn, drink less alcohol, don’t smoke, practice more self-care to avoid stress, and do your best to watch your weight

What can I do if I have eczema?

Eczema is itchy red patches which typically show on the hands, elbows, back of the neck, chest, and eyelids. Avoid milk, eggs, fish, cheese, nuts and food additives

As you can see there are many foods that can help you achieve the healthy, radiant skin that you have always longed for. However, you need to be patient. It typically takes six weeks for new skin to make its way to the surface. And remember to choose safe, natural skincare products like Pure Fiji.
