A Must-Try PMS Juice For Acne Breakouts
Hormonal acne breakouts are the most annoying, but at least there is that time of the month when we can expect it. There are tons of foods that can reduce and prevent pms symptoms and one of my favorites is a simple yet effective kale & apple juice. First lets go over a simple explanation of your hormonal fluctuations related to PMS.
Most women start to feel PMS symptoms 3 to 7 days before menstruation starts. But what’s happening inside your body that leads to your period is approximately two weeks ahead of time. The levels of estrogen and progesterone fluctuate while your ovaries start to produce testosterone. Progesterone increases sebum (oil) production and compresses your pores, creating clogged pores and blemishes. In addition testosterone is doing its best to ramp up sebum, as well, and for some women that leads to unwanted breakouts.
Ward off monthly breakouts that are being caused by your hormones with an easy-to-make kale & apple juice. Kale is a dark leafy green that contains many amazing nutrients such as:
- Vitamin B6 – is beneficial for premenstrual acne breakouts
- Folic Acid – is beneficial for tissue growth & cell development
- Beta-Carotene – is beneficial for a natural glow & internal sunscreen (SPF4)
1 large kale leaf
2-3 green apples
Lime twist for garnish
