It can be difficult to make drastic changes to your diet, but the beautiful, clear skin you are going to have should be all the motivation you need to eat more healthily. Include large quantities of fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds in your diet.

The essential vitamins and minerals in these foods will help to clear up your skin. If you find it difficult to eat large amounts of fruit and vegetables, incorporate them into your diet by making tasty smoothies and juices from fresh fruit and leaf green vegetables.
Instead of reaching for unhealthy, sugary snacks, carry a pack of brazil nuts or pumpkin seeds around with you and graze on them during the day. They are both high in minerals that are thought to help reduce acne (Brazil nuts are high in selenium and pumpkin seeds are high in zinc).
You cannot ignore diet when it comes to learning how to get rid of pimples naturally.

Drinking two liters of still mineral water every day has amazing effects on your skin. Dehydrated skin cannot get rid of dead skin cells, which lead to blocked pores, a breeding ground for acne. Get into the habit of taking a liter bottle of water to school or work with you, then drink another liter of water in the evening.
Certain supplements are known to be highly effective in getting rid of acne. Maca is a powdered Peruvian root vegetable with powerful hormone-stabilizing properties. It also balances the body’s systems – you should be sure to check with your doctor if you are taking any other medicines before trying this supplement.

By adding it to your fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies you are getting all its benefits without even realizing it. Nature’s Living Superfood is high in vitamins, minerals and trace minerals.

By using only natural skin care products, you can keep your face free from strong chemicals, which can often irritate skin that is prone to pimples. Natural ingredients like tea tree oil will help to get rid of acne without overloading the skin with chemicals.
Keep your skin clean, but use a light, gentle routine that will let your skin breathe. Go without cosmetics as often as possible. If you do need to wear makeup, go for non-comedogenic formulas that will not block your pores.
Keeping stress to a minimum is another way to keep acne at bay. Try yoga, meditation and other relaxation techniques to stay calm and restore balance to your life and your skin.

If you are serious about knowing how to get rid of pimples naturally, you will need to be patient. One week of healthy eating and yoga will not completely get rid of your skin blemishes. If you are dedicated to making changes for the better, however, you should see results within a couple of weeks. If you can persevere, you will not only have clearer skin – your overall health will improve

1.Clean Your Skin
Clean the skin of your face, neck, chest and upper back with a mild, nonabrasive, dye- and fragrance-free skin cleanser twice daily and after perspiring heavily. Avoid deodorant and other harsh soaps, which contain chemicals that may irritate your skin and worsen acne.
Wash your skin with your hands instead of a cloth or cleansing sponge, which may aggravate acne by abrading your skin.
Avoid washing your skin too frequently and scrubbing your skin harshly. Although cleansing your skin helps get rid of acne by removing excess oil and dead skin cells from your pores, frequent or harsh washing may aggravate acne by excessively drying and irritating your skin.
Wash your hair regularly to prevent oil, hairspray and other styling products from clogging your pores. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends daily shampooing if you have oily hair

Keep Your Pores Clear
Avoid using cosmetics or sunscreens that contain oil, which can clog your pores and aggravate acne. Use skin products labeled as oil-free or noncomedogenic.
Wash your face with a gentle cleanser after completing your shift if you work in an environment where your skin accumulates dust, dirt or grease.
Avoid touching acne-prone areas with your hands to prevent the inadvertent transfer of potentially irritating substances to your skin.

Six things must be done EVERYDAY to reduce/prevent acne: 1)Wash, Tone, Moisturize Face 2 or 3 Times 2)Don’t Let Dirty Things Touch Face 3)Eat Healthy Food, Limit Junk Food 4)Take Multi Vitamin Mineral 5)Drink About 64 Oz Pure Water 6)Do 20 to 30 Min Aerobic Exercise. Doing 1 or a few of these will NOT keep skin clear as possible!

Must use 3 things on face: Wash, Toner, Moisturizer. Do this at least twice a day, morning & night (possibly 3rd time, midday, if super oily/sweating). Products that work for one person may not work for another person, so always do small patch test on face for a couple of days to see how skin will react to product! Don’t quickly jump from product to product! Give skin a break before trying new product to prevent irritation! Natural & gentle products are sometimes more effective than acne medicine!

NATURAL & GENTLE: Wash face with warm water & Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar by Johnson & Johnson. Tone face with Witch Hazel (Thayers or Dickinson’s) or Homemade Toner. Witch Hazel is gentle, reduces bacteria/swelling, minimizes size of skin pores, helps acne. Make toner by mixing 1 part Organic Apple Cider Vinegar With The Mother (Bragg Organic Apple Cider) with 5 parts pure water. Test small area! If burns/to drying, use more water! Use at least 1 part water! Less Water = Stronger, More Drying Formula. This vinegar kills bacteria, absorbs excess oil, dries out pimples, lightens scars, refines skin tone. Don’t use other types of vinegar, will damage skin! Moisturize face with Lily Of The Desert Aloe Vera Gelly, its 99% organic, contains vitamin A, C, E! Aloe vera helps renew skin cells, heals blemishes/scars. Don’t use other brands of aloe, has very little aloe & to much junk in it which can irritate skin!

ACNE MEDICINE: Try one of these active ingredients for a period of time to see if skin improves: Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, Sulfur, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Beta Hydroxy Acid, Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid. Try acid products by Skin Laboratory or Alpha Hydrox/Neoteric Cosmetics. Acid heals acne & scars! If over the counter acne medicine doesn’t work, then see a doctor to get a stronger medicine.

FACE PRODUCTS & MAKEUP: Only use oil free products that won’t clog pores! Using a Makeup Finish or Makeup Setting Spray (Skindinavia, Model In A Bottle, Sephora) will give you shine-free skin all day! Old makeup, makeup tools harbor bacteria, Use fresh makeup, wash/replace tools often! Wash makeup off face before going to bed!

FACE MASK can be done once a week. Make mask by mixing plain oatmeal with water. Oatmeal is soothing, absorbs excess oil, makes skin smoother. Wash face with warm water, apply mask. Leave on for 20 min or until it dries. Rinse off with warm water, Apply toner & moisturizer.

HANDS, HAIR, STUFF: Keep dirt & bacteria at bay to prevent more breakouts! Don’t touch face with hands, Don’t let phone nor dirty oily hair touch face, Don’t lean face on objects, Clean glasses often, Wash pillowcase, sheets, blanket, washcloth, towel often. Always wash hands before applying face products!

KEEP MOVING: Aerobic Exercise, Face Massage, Dry Skin Brushing increases circulation & delivery of nutrients to skin cells, encourages good blood supply, helps remove toxins, controls acne breakouts! Do 20 to 30 min of exercise, everyday or every other day! For outstanding results, do all 3 activities, everyday! When exercising, drink water & immediately take a shower to remove sweat & dirt! For face massage, wash hands & face, apply toner, use aloe vera as massage gel. Do 10 min massage before going to bed. Don’t wash face again, let aloe dry on face. Buy any book on face massage like the, Ten Minute Facelift by Jennie Harding. Dry Skin Brushing must be done correctly & carefully, read book, Dr. Berkowsky’s Vital Chi Skin Brushing System by Bruce Berkowsky! Never brush delicate face! Take shower after brushing to wash off dead skin & dirt!

DIET & LIFESTYLE: Research has shown that there is a connection between certain kinds of food & acne! Read book The Clear Skin Diet by Alan C. Logan & Valori Treloar! This book has detailed info on what to eat and not to eat to help reduce/prevent acne! Always eat healthy food – fruit, vegetables, lean meat, fish, fiber, beans, wholegrains, foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, vitamin A & C. Limit intake of frozen meals, dairy, milk, fat, oil, butter, greasy/fried foods, sugar, candy, salt, dessert, caffeine, coffee, pop, alcohol. Always avoid cigarettes, tobacco, illegal drugs! Its hard to get all vitamins minerals skin needs, so take supplement everyday! Overdosing on vitamins minerals from food or supplements is dangerous! Drinking about 64 oz of pure water everyday improves skin quality, flushes out toxins, delivers nutrients to skin! You can also include 100% Fruit Juice as part of your daily total. Acne can be caused or aggravated by constipation, make sure bow movements are regular! Getting enough sleep helps skin repair itself!

Sandra asks…

How do i make my face more smooth and clear and better?

Im a guy, and my face is always red and bumpy, and looks like it has a rash, my chin always gets pimples too. Look at my profile pic and if you zoom in on my face youll see. I really hate it. I want it to be more clear and white/Pale look. What can i do?

admin answers:

The sun and too much soaking in the tub or pool ARE SKIN’S worst enemies.

You want to be pale and have clear, smooth, healthy skin? Protect your face from the sun, wear a wide brim hat. Sit or walk in the shade. Even Mario Lopez wouldn’t stand outside in the sun, to do a tanning commercial. Look how good his skin looks! Mine is like that, and I’m almost 60, have been protecting my skin from the sun starting around age 9.
1. Because I don’t want to look like a farmer.
2. Because I get too hot.
3. I want to look like movie stars & models, they have blemish-free skins. Example: models @ the Ralph Lauren fashion show, they all have flawless complexion.
4. I don’t want to look like an old prune or get moles on my neck & face like my aunts.

No matter, I still got Discoid Lupus (Google it), caused from the sun. It took 12 years for them to fade. Tried all kinds of lotions that were prescribed to me, and none of them worked. More & more now I protect myself and I take my wide brim hat everywhere I go, or use an umbrella. In Asia, they use umbrella all the time. Here in the States, people started to catch on, and I see people walking w/umbrella, they are used on the beach, and they sell patio umbrellas. It was invented for a reason and also to protect us from getting skin cancer.

The sun is more powerful than most people think!

Any kind of facial wash, you’re leaving something toxic behind, it’s not a matter of convenience, it’s a billion dollar business that can do more harm than good to your acne. And sometimes we feel entirely virtuous about our skin-care regimen because it’s full of SPF– all year round!– and cleansers and such. But the truth is, we may not realize that we’re overdoing (or underdoing) something that can lead to the very thing we’re trying to avoid: dryness, breakouts, accelerated aging, New York dermatologist Dr. Jeannette Graf. (I’ve been giving this same advice for decades, but she’s proof enough!).
Take a shower everyday, use washcloth to exfoliate and bath & body wash. Hydrogen peroxide does wonders for acne. Visit their website for more tips & other uses. ONLY $1.

Acne medication could worsen what ever allergies you have, so instead of trying out one product after another, you’re actually spreading it around.
The less products you use, the better for your skin. Use a bath & body wash like Suave, Irish Spring, Dove Body & Face wash in the shower, use a washcloth. Treat your face like the rest of your body, take a shower everyday or wash your face everyday.

Sometimes just the oil on your face from make up and lotions, even from your hair can travel to your face causing acne to come out. Others, from stress, hormones & diet or foods.

All the vitamins & minerals you need for good skin care comes from all the healthy foods you eat from Mother Nature.

If acne’s a problem, your pillowcases may be part of the cause. “They collect skin oil, dead skin cells, bacteria, and excess night creams,” says David Bank, a professional Dermatology @ Columbia University/New York-Presbyterian Hospital. “But if nothing changed by 6 week the product will never work for you. Time to move on.”

“If you have breakouts, dairy is the devil’ it is inflammatory and will add hormones to your already hormone-rife system. Get calcium elsewhere, or try nonfat organic dairy products. For PMS breakouts, avoid dairy and bakery items the week before your period – sugar and flour are both causes for pimples and collagen.” Dr. Jessica Wu, M.D. University of Southern California School of Medicine and author of the new book Feed Your Face.


Lea Michele recently revealed her secret to clear skin—She gives it room to “breathe.” “Maybe I’ll put on a little mascara. But other than that I try very hard to just let my skin breathe,” she told “I care more about letting my skin breathe than how I look.”
Another good example is Lily Collins, actor, writer, artist: “When I travel to Europe, I go days without putting anything on. It feels healthier. I just never understood the idea of caking it on. The more you have on your face, the more there is to smudge and go wrong.” Glamour – Sept. 2012.
