Choose veggies wisely Veggies with high-water content (cucumbers, for example) are said to help acne, and it makes pure sense: Water, we know, is key to flushing-out those clog-poring toxins, plus cucumbers have the added bonus of being "cooling" -- thus, effective in calming down the inflammation associated with pimples. And, reach for orange delights (carrots, sweet potatoes) that are loaded with vitamin A -- good for overall detox (skin and body alike). Of course, you can dip carrots and cukes into olive-and-bean-boasting hummus or low-fat, Greek yogurt. Or, start juicing -- and add herbs into the mix for added health benefit. Sweet potatoes are divine when steamed, mashed or sliced into baked fries -- drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cinnamon.
