Reducing acidity is the first step towards healthier skin. With each glass of alkaline water ingested, beautiful skin is closer to becoming a reality.
A diet dominated by alkaline forming foods such as vegetables and fruit are recommended but more importantly experts agree that drinking lots of alkaline water is the real key to restoring pH balance and overall skin health.
As the body’s largest organ, the skin was made to do more than merely contain human organs, glands, muscles and bones, it was designed to shine and tell a tale similar to that dazzling new Jaguar on display at a car show. The exterior of the body speaks to the quality and care invested in it just the same as the state of a vehicle speaks volumes of its manufacturer and then owner.. Pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, the works, what does an acne breakout say about what’s happening on the inside?
“Acne is a skin disorder that used to be believed to be caused by the anaerobic Propionibacterium, acnes bacteria. Recently scientific research from others and my own has shown that acne begins with the oxidation or acidity of the sebum or sebum peroxidation, which involves metabolic and dietary acids damaging the sebum and lowering the oxygen levels and alkaline pH of the skin,” explains Prof. Robert O Young “After the metabolic and/or dietary acids have done their part, the P. Acnes bacteria are born right out of the damaged skin cells and increase in numbers as the skin becomes more and more damaged from an acidic lifestyle and diet,” states Prof. Robert O. Young.
When faced with an invasion of bacteria, the body does what it must and that’s to fight to expel the germs but when the skin environment lacks antioxidants it’s difficult to contain. The key to avoiding and combating acne as much as possible is to nutritionally feed the body right in order to fortify its antioxidant defense system. A diet dominated by alkaline forming foods such as fruits and vegetables is recommended but more importantly, experts agree that drinking lots of water is the real key to restoring pH balance and overall skin health.
“Make sure you are drinking up to 4 litres of good quality alkaline water daily,” recommends Ross Bridgeford, author of the Alkaline Diet Recipe Books and the Amazon best-seller The Water Diet. “It makes such a massive difference to your energy, but also does wonders for your skin as it allows your body to flush toxins out much more easily (rather than forcing them through your pores).”
The oily sebum secreted by the pores plays a role in skin health but it’s when too many dead skin cells accumulate and they mix together that a breakout begins as the conditions ideal for bacteria to harbor are created and they enjoy hanging around in clumps by hair follicles. This is where alkaline water steps in to the rescue, fighting acne from within is the most effective way of going about restoring healthy skin.
“Your health depends on the balance of an alkaline environment, created by eating foods such as tomatoes, avocados and green vegetables… and regulating your body’s acid/alkaline chemistry through simple changes in diet can result in weight loss, increased stamina and strength, a stronger immune system and a greater sense of wellbeing,” details Prof. Robert O. Young, scientist and author of The pH Miracle, The pH Miracle for Diabetes, The pH Miracle for Weight Loss, The pH Miracle for Cancer and The pH Miracle for the Heart, book series. To order go to:
