Causes of Acne:
-One of the leading causes of acne today is the buildup of bad bacteria, yeast, and candida in the gut and digestive tract.
-Taking antibiotic drugs and birth control pills, drinking chlorinated and fluorinated water, and consuming excess sugar can increase the growth of bad bacteria, yeast, and candida within the body.

Replace with: Stevia, a calorie-free, sugar-free, all-natural sweetener.

2. Remove: Grains, especially gluten, which causes inflammation of the intestinal tract.
Healing the gut will clear the skin.
