Sometimes, i'ts not about whether or not we're using the right products when trying to clear our skin. Sometimes it's about our diet, our stress levels, and if we're drinking ENOUGH water.
Here's a quick guide to follow when simply trying to clear up your skin.
You have to drink water to flush the toxins out of your body.
Add fruits to your diet. Buy a cheap fruit bowl and put it somewhere visible in your kitchen so that you'll be more tempted to grab it and eat it.
Some of the best fruits that'll help out are pineapples, plums, lemons, kiwis, avocadas, apples, strawberries, and bananas.
Flaxseed resuces the inflammation in the skin, which treats acne.

Strawberries have antioxidants which prevents wrinkles and bananas are full of potassium which moisturizes and hydrates.
Orange vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes provides a lot of Vitamin A. Red and yellow bell peppers are a source of Vitamin C which provides collagen, keeping the skin firm and strong.
If you're not a fan of bell peppers, then I suggest using a collagen protein powder like https://amzn.to/31ehTC6.
