Clear Skin Guide | Internal Cleansing
Clear skin begins with cleansing your body internally. Start by limiting sugary treats and foods that are high in fat. Prepare and eat a healthy diet by including fruits and vegetables in each meal. Also, drink 16 to 20 of water a day for adults. Children should be drinking 8 to 12 cups a day. Why? Water helps filter the body’s system by flushing out toxins.
Furthermore, drink 1 cup of 100% pure cranberry juice a day. If you are unable to find pure cranberry juice. Just drink 4 cups a day of the Ocean Spray Cranberry juice instead. Cranberry juice is high vitamin C which helps fight free radicals and inflammation. Most of all, cranberry juice helps keep the kidneys healthy by preventing bacteria from sticking to the urinary tract wall. The function of kidneys is to help expel toxins and bacteria from the body.
