3. Bad Breath Relief– Place a slice of cucumber on the roof of your mouth. Hold it there for 30 seconds. It kills the bacteria in your mouth!

2. Sunburn Treatment– No aloe in your medicine cabinet? No worries! Just rub a slice of cucumber over your burns or irritated skin.

4. Energy Booster– You can replace coffee and energy drinks with a cucumber! The carbohydrates and B vitamins give you a long lasting and healthy energy boost.

5. Cheap Facial- Boil a sliced up cucumber. Remove it from the heat, lean over the pot, and let the steam open your pores.

  • Cucumbers:  This veggie is high in water content, which helps flush away toxins from your pores.  It also has a “cooling” effect, which can calm down inflammation caused by acne.
  • Oysters: If you’re a sea food lover, then start loading up on oysters.  They are full of zinc, which is crucial in killing acne.  It also absorbs vitamin A, which it vital for the health of our skin.
  • Yogurt and blueberries: This wonder food packs on the probiotics, which can actually prevent bad bacteria from forming. 
  • Dark chocolate: Indulging in dark chocolate can actually cure your skin!  It’s full of antioxidants that can help shield your skin from harmful radiation.
  • Water: This is probably the most powerful acne fighter.  It keeps your body and skin hydrated, flushing out bad toxins that could get stuck in your pores. 

Who would’ve thought that incorporating a few of these tasty foods in your diet each day could actually get rid of acne?!  I know I’d rather eat food than take medicine!  I hope this helped you on your journey to clearer skin!!
