View Full Version : Juicing For Acne/Acne Scars

Has anyone successfully healed acne/acne scars by juicing? If so, what juice combo did you make that worked best? How long did it take?

sorry, I have not try it, you can search it online! I only know lemon is good for skin.

Thank you! Yes, I've been using lemon externally along with drinking it in teas and water daily.
I would like to hear of skin success stories of being raw and especially juicing if anyone has any.

Look at the before and after section. People that are raw have georgous skin. It called the "Raw Glow". I think you will have great success. Remember It won't happen overnight. You have to give your body a chance to cleanse and heal itself.

I will look into that section, thank you. I did search "acne" and some people said they were on raw for over a year and haven't had much success with the acne. I was told I have to get the lymph moving, and kidneys/adrenals working properly for the skin to clear up. That being said, I use to have skin issues all throughout my teens. It stopped and became flawless for few years in my early 20's. After a really rough time in my life of trauma, stress, chemical poisoning, I became incredibly exhausted and that is when the skin flaired up very badly. I eventually took accutane (regret so much). It cleared me up while I was on it and I barely had any scars. Once I stopped it remained clear for 2 months. Around that time I became raw and started seeing terrible deep acne scars in areas I didn't even have acne which was very very strange. I started breaking out again when going raw and as soon as I introduced a high fruit diet, it's been terrible. I called Dr. Morse's office and was told that fruit is detoxing me very heavily and since my kidneys are not as quick to filter out the lymph, it is detoxing through the skin. Everything makes complete sense, it's just emotionally I lose faith a lot of the times. I am tired of wearing a mask of makeup to cover up an issue that's is taking a toll on my self esteem. I feel like I'm trapped behind this and would like to experience beautiful healthy skin for the rest of my life.

Acne is the result of the liver and kidneys failing to flush toxins from the body - the skin is the only other way out.
To keep your skin nice and clear you should juice with foods high in beta carotene such as carrots.
See some of the benefits of carrots here http://www.juicing-benefits-toolbox.com/carrot-juice-benefits.html
Also consider juicing with sweet potatoes, spinach and algae.

I have never read any one curing acne using juices only.
You need to have a good diet plan and a good acne cure product to help you. If you are suffering from heavy acne problems.

A good diet alone should be enough.
Products are just that - products that people sell to make money. They only make money if you keep having to use the product. That is not a cure. Natural products are better than man-made products but they are still products sold to make money.
Use a raw food lifestyle and you will cure most things and if not cured then at least the symptoms are much improved.

I agree with MysticTree. I also believe the reason we don't hear more about the benefits of a raw diet or about the health benefits of a juice cleanse. Is what she said as well. It is not something you can package into a little pill and sale for massive amounts of profit. I have also heard before what Juice-freak mentioned above that it could have something to do with Liver and Kidneys not being able to do the jobs they are intended for. There are juice cleanses you can do for Liver and Kidney detox which may help you in that area. I also think that going more towards a raw diet could be a long term alternative as well. You could read some more about these areas and then see what your body tells you if you decide to try them. Good luck and best of health to you!

hi! hope this helps:
2 big beets & 2 big carrot juice (at 5 am), and try to drink during the day a smoothie of 1 pineapple + yerbabuena (a species of mint) every day, try them for at least one month and you will see the results!

Must be organic and the peel left on to get the benefits of the silica in the cucumbers. If you haven't read, "Eating For Beauty", by David Wolfe, I highly recommend it! It is an excellent read with excellent information! Take care!

That's good that you re doing this but in my opinion you should start using a cream like Retin A for acne
There are some acids found in food naturally that you could also put on acne scars. I remember my mother crushing up strawberries and putting them on her face. Retin A is a very harsh chemical to put on your face. Surely, there is a better and more healthy alternative? I know the first thing people complement when I am 100% raw is my face. It is smoother and brighter and I am going on 50!
Believe it or not, I get tons of comments when I am out and about with my son. People think I am his older sister...he's almost 22...I usually get "around 30" and I'm 47!
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!!!
