Juicing For Sensitive Skin

Freshly made juices are packed with nourishing ingredients that can do wonders for your skin. Juicing for sensitive skin is not a quick fix; rather, it is a long-term routine that heals your skin from the inside.

The health of your liver inadvertently reflects on the health of your skin. The liver plays a crucial role in converting and flushing out toxins from the bloodstream.

With so much environmental pollution and the increased intake of processed food, our livers have to work harder to keep the bloodstream clean.

When the liver is unable to perform at optimal capacity, your skin comes in to help with the process of flushing out toxins. Unfortunately, this burden placed on the skin can lead to chronic inflammatory conditions such as rashes, acne, eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis.

More intakes of water and fresh juices can boost the liver’s capacity and in turn rejuvenate your skin. In this article, we'll break down common types of sensitive skin conditions and provide juicing recommendations that can help to heal your skin.

In particular, we will focus on juicing for:

  • Eczema
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Psoriasis
  • Rashes

ECZEMA

Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema is characterized by red and itchy skin. While it is common in children below 5 years, anyone can get eczema. This skin condition lasts a long time with flare-ups occurring occasionally.

Eczema Symptoms

 Different people will exhibit different symptoms of eczema. Common symptoms include: 

  • Itching which may intensify at night
  • Dry skin characterized by red or brownish-gray patches
  • Weepy bumps that form a crust due to intense itching
  • Scaly, cracked skin
  • Raw and inflamed skin on the hands, wrists, upper trunk, behind knees and inside the elbows, feet, ankles, as well as the face and scalp especially in young children

What Causes Eczema?

The exact cause of eczema is unknown but studies show that genetics play an important role in determining who will get eczema. In people with eczema, a certain gene variation has been found to compromise the skin’s ability to offer protection from allergens and irritants.

Food allergies have also been found to trigger eczema flare-ups in children. Other than genetic makeup and food, other risk factors for eczema include asthma and hay fever.

Treatments such as topical steroids, cold compresses, topical creams, lotions, and natural remedies such as Emu oil or juicing can help alleviate the symptoms of atopic dermatitis.

However, you should see a doctor if the skin condition becomes so severe that it interferes with your daily activities, the skin has an infection, or if symptoms are accompanied by a fever.

Juicing For Eczema

Fruits and vegetables can help alleviate the symptoms of eczema by eliminating toxins from the body.

An accumulation of waste in the body can trigger cellular inflammation, thereby increasing your risk for eczema flare-ups.

Juice fasting for a couple of days can help flush out the toxins in your lymphatic system, which can significantly help to heal eczema.

In addition to juice fasting, consider performing a liver detox. The liver plays an important role in eliminating toxins from the body. You could combine both the detox and juice fasting for best results in improving the symptoms of eczema.

Pro Tip

  • Try to drink 2 liters of mineral water daily.
  • Add ½ teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt to your daily water intake—this salt is rich in nourishing minerals and also offers great benefits when added to your bath water.

Ingredients To Avoid When You Have Eczema

  • Dairy: Cut back on milk, eggs, cheese as well beef products as these are believed to trigger or worsen eczema.
  • Avoid excessive consumption of alcohol and tobacco, which can cause flare-ups characterized by intense itching.
  • Keep off from orange juice and nightshade vegetables, which include eggplant, peppers, potatoes, and tomatoes. These vegetables are also not suitable for people with arthritis.

Eczema Juice Recipes

Use a traditional blender or juicer to make juice containing one or a combination of any of these fruits and vegetables:

  • check
    Asparagus
  • check
    Elderberry
  • check
    Apples
  • check
    Cucumber
  • check
    Avocado
  • check
    Spinach

These ingredients help to alkalize the body to minimize cellular inflammation. Vary your daily intake of these fruits and vegetables and drink these juices at least three times per day for best results.

You may not see instant results but there will be a progressive healing of your eczema and a general sense of wellbeing. Be sure to stick to dietary constraints to avoid aggravating your eczema.

ROSACEA

Rosacea is characterized by intense redness that is sometimes accompanied by acne-like symptoms. The redness, which looks like a blush can affect the facial area and spread to the ears, back, and chest.

There are many symptoms of rosacea. The four types of rosacea categorized by their symptoms include:

  • Papulopustular rosacea: Acne-like bumps, swelling, and redness.
  • Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea: Flushing, redness, visible appearance of blood vessels.
  • Phymatous rosacea: Thickening of skin, rough texture.
  • Ocular rosacea: Swollen eyelids, red eyes, irritation of the eyes.

Over time, people with rosacea have to deal with what seems like perpetual redness. It is common for an individual to have more than one type of rosacea. Due to the different symptoms, each type has its own treatment.

Common Rosacea Symptoms

While symptoms vary from person to person, common signs of rosacea include: 

  • Redness in the face: Constant facial redness may be a sign of rosacea. Redness is caused by intensified appearance of small blood vessels in the central area of your face.
  • Bumpy skin: Acne-like pimples may develop on the face. The bumps may be pus-filled and could cause your face to feel hot and tender to the touch.
  • Thick skin around the nose: Severe rosacea can cause a bulbous appearance of the nose, a condition that affects men more than it does women.
  • Eye issues: Many people who have rosacea also present eye redness, irritation, swelling, and drying. Eye problems may sometimes start before the onset of skin symptoms.

What causes Rosacea?

The cause of rosacea is unknown but it is thought that genes and environmental factors contribute greatly. Several factors may trigger or worsen rosacea.

These include exposure to the sun or wind, intense emotions, hot drinks, alcohol, spices, cosmetic products, exercise and drugs that promote blood vessel dilation.

While anyone can develop rosacea, you are more susceptible if you are a woman, are over age 30, have fair skin, are a smoker and have a family history of the skin condition.

Juicing For Rosacea

Like eczema, certain food items can trigger a rosacea outbreak so you want to stay away from these ingredients.

Ingredients To Avoid When You Have Rosacea

  • Cinnamon, wintergreen, chill flakes and peppermint
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Alcohol

The best ingredients for resolving rosacea are those that strengthen as opposed to dilate your blood vessels. Ingredients that dilate blood vessels increase redness and flushing associated with rosacea.

Rosacea Juice Recipes

The three ingredients that will offer you the best benefits when it comes to resolving rosacea are:

  • check
    Bilberry
  • check
    Blackberry
  • check
    Blueberry

These fruits contain anthocyanidins, natural compounds that work to strengthen the walls of blood vessels in the eyes’ retina and in the skin, in turn reducing facial redness associated with rosacea.

ACNE

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions. When dead skin cells and oil block hair follicles, the skin breaks out in the form of blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples.

Acne commonly affects the face but it can also appear on the shoulders, upper back, and chest. Acne mostly affects teenagers but people of all ages can get acne breakouts.

This skin condition can be quite tricky to treat. As soon as one pimple heals, another one develops, requiring you to be very persistent with treatments and home remedies.

Acne Symptoms

Acne symptoms vary with the severity of the skin condition. Common symptoms include:

  • Closed, plugged skin pores resulting in whiteheads
  • Open, plugged skin pores causing blackheads
  • Papules characterized by small bumps
  • Pustules or pimples with pus-filled tips
  • Nodules- Hard painful bumps underneath the skin
  • Cysts- Painful lumps beneath the skin

Home remedies such as juicing and prescription medication can help to alleviate the symptoms of acne.

What causes Acne?

The main causes of acne are bacteria, excessive production of oil by the skin, and plugging of hair follicles by dead skin cells and oil.

Other factors that may worsen the symptoms of acne include:

  • Excessive hormonal activity: In particular, androgens, which are typically in overdrive during puberty. These hormones enlarge the sebaceous glands, which then produce more oil (sebum). Pregnancy and the use of oral contraceptives can also affect the production of sebum.
  • Medication: Medicines containing ingredients such as lithium, testosterone, and corticosteroids can worsen acne.
  • Food: Dairy products and foods rich in carbohydrates have been found to increase pimples. Chocolate too is a common culprit. Following specific dietary recommendations can help to alleviate acne.
  • Stress: High levels of stress can trigger breakouts especially among women.

Risk Factors for Acne

  • Age: While you can get acne at any age, teenagers face a higher risk.
  • Hormonal changes: Individuals such as women, girls and teenagers are prone to drastic hormonal changes, which increases their risk for acne.
  • People taking drugs, androgens and corticosteroids may also experience significant hormonal changes, which may predispose them to develop acne.
  • Genetics: You have a high chance of developing acne if both your parents had this skin condition.
  • Oil and grease: Contrary to popular belief, greasy food does not cause acne. However, prolonged exposure to greasy work areas such as in a busy kitchen and the use of oil-based cosmetics such as foundations, lotions, and creams can increase your chances of getting acne.
  • Constant friction on the skin: Anything that continually rubs on the skin, for example, a helmet or backpack can predispose you to acne.
  • Stress: While stress does not cause acne, it can aggravate the condition if you already have it.

Juicing For Acne

To fight acne, ensure to include the following ingredients in your juices:

  • check
    Vitamin A: Vitamin A is also known as retinol. It is fat soluble and helps prevent infection, aids with hormone-balancing and generally contributes to healthy skin. Sources of vitamin A to include in your juices include broccoli, carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, papaya, and mangoes.
  • check
    Beta-carotene: This compound is transformed into vitamin A in the body and acts as a powerful antioxidant. Orange/red fruits and vegetables are packed with beta-carotene.
  • check
    Vitamin C: Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, which helps to strengthen connective tissue and heal wounds. Lemon juice is a great source of Vitamin C but strawberries, kiwis, oranges, and mangoes are wonderful alternatives.
  • check
    Antioxidants: Red, purple and darker colored fruits and vegetables are the best sources of antioxidants, which help to fight diseases. Vitamin K: Vitamin K helps with healing wounds and is found in abundance in green leafy vegetables as well.
  • check
    Zinc: Zinc helps to alleviate acne by minimizing the production of sebum, soothing irritated skin and repairing tissue. Great sources of zinc include raspberries, blackberries, and pomegranates.
  • check
    Vitamin E: Vitamin E minimizes the appearance of scarring and contributes to healing the skin. Green leafy vegetables are packed with vitamin E.
  • check
    Sulfur: Sulfur is a powerful acne-buster found in papaya, kale, pineapple, broccoli, and tomatoes.
  • check
    Manganese: Manganese promotes healthy skin by helping with absorption of calcium in the body and strengthening connective tissue. Green vegetables, beetroots, and raspberries are packed with manganese.
  • check
    Magnesium: Magnesium helps in hormone-balancing and is found in green leafy vegetables including kale and spinach.
  • check
    Calcium: Calcium aids in skin cell renewal and calming the skin. Broccoli and green leafy vegetables are packed with calcium.
  • check
    Copper: Copper contributes to collagen repair and production. Great sources of this mineral include kale, mango, kiwi, and blackberries. For best results, interchange the juice colors throughout the week to ensure that you are acquiring all the nutrients your body needs to fight acne.

PSORIASIS

Psoriasis is a skin condition that accelerates the life cycle of skin cells. Because skin cells are produced faster than usual, the cells end up accumulating on the skin’s surface. This accumulation causes skin cells to form itchy, painful red patches and scales. Psoriasis comes and goes away occasionally.

There is no cure for psoriasis but the condition is treatable with the goal of slowing down the production of skin cells.

Psoriasis Symptoms

The symptoms of psoriasis vary from person to person. Common symptoms include:

  • Small patches of scales especially in children
  • Red patches covered in thick scales
  • Dry skin that may bleed
  • Skin itchiness and burning sensation
  • Ripped and thickened nails
  • Stiff and inflamed joints

Psoriasis symptoms can be managed by making lifestyle changes such as minimizing stress, regularly moisturizing your skin, and dropping your smoking habit.

Psoriasis can appear as dandruff-like patches covering a small area or as severe scaling over a large skin surface. 

Flare-ups can last from a few weeks to a couple of months then go away only to resurface later.

Types of Psoriasis

There are different types of psoriasis, each with its own symptoms.

  • Plaque psoriasis: This is the most common type of psoriasis punctuated by raised, dry, itchy lesions on the skin covered by scales that appear silvery in color. The scales may affect a small area or spread across a larger surface on any part of the body.
  • Nail psoriasis: When psoriasis affects toe and fingernails, it can cause the nails to thicken, grow abnormally, discolor and even crumble in severe cases. The nail may even detach from the nail bed, a condition known as onycholysis.
  • Guttate psoriasis: The existence of bacteria such as those that cause strep throat triggers guttate psoriasis. This condition commonly affects children and young adults. Symptoms include lesion scales on the upper trunk, scalp, legs, and arms. The lesions are typically small, shaped like a water drop and are covered by fine as opposed to thick plaque-like scales. Sometimes, guttate psoriasis may go away on its own or it may reappear intermittently.
  • Inverse psoriasis: This type of psoriasis is characterized by red, smooth patches of irritated skin that can be aggravated by sweating and excessive rubbing. The condition typically affects the skin around the genitals, armpits and beneath the breasts. An existing fungal infection may increase the risk of inverse psoriasis.
  • Pustular psoriasis: This type of psoriasis affects a smaller number of people but like the other variations, it can affect a small area or spread all over the body. Pustular psoriasis is marked by pus-filled, red and tender blisters that spread quickly. Other accompanying symptoms include diarrhea, chills, fever and severe itching.
  • Erythrodermic psoriasis: This is also a very uncommon type of psoriasis. It presents as a red, intensely itchy and peeling rash that typically spreads throughout the body.
  • Psoriatic arthritis: Psoriasis can affect the joints causing pain and inflammation. The joints may be affected as part of a psoriasis flare-up or the swelling and pain could mark the onset of psoriasis. Psoriatic arthritis may also be accompanied by nail arthritis. While the condition is not as severe as other forms of arthritis, psoriatic arthritis can cause stiffness and damage the joints gradually. In extreme cases, the joints can be permanently deformed.

A doctor will be able to tell you the type of psoriasis you have.

You should definitely seek medical attention if your condition interferes with your daily activities, causes pain, makes you concerned about your skin’s appearance or causes problems with your joints such that it interferes with your activities of daily living.

What Causes Psoriasis?

The cause of psoriasis is unknown but this skin condition has been linked to problems with the immune system. In particular, dysfunction of white blood cells known as neutrophils and T cells increases the risk for psoriasis.

T cells work to protect the body against bacteria and virus. However, when the T cells start to attack healthy skin cells, you can develop psoriasis.

Overactive T cells lead to an over-production of healthy skin cells, white blood cells, and additional T-cells.

These cells accumulate on the surface of the skin to cause redness and in some cases, pus-filled pustular lesions.

In an ongoing cycle, new skin cells are rapidly produced and move to the surface of the skin. This causes skin cells to quickly build up, thicken and form scaly patches.

The cycle will continue unless treatment is administered. It is not completely understood what causes T cells to become overactive but those in the medical community posit that environmental factors and genetics contribute to malfunctions with the T cells.

Psoriasis Risk Factors

While anyone can get psoriasis, some risk factors increase your chances of developing this condition. These include:

  • Genetics: If one or both of your parents have/had psoriasis, there is a high chance that you will get the disease. 
  • Existing infections: Bacterial and viral infections that compromise the immune system can predispose you to psoriasis. People with strep throat and HIV are especially at a high risk.
  • Stress: Although stress does not cause psoriasis, it can weaken your immune system, therefore, increasing your risk. Excess weight: Psoriasis often develops underneath skin folds. Being obese can increase your chance of developing psoriatic plaques.
  • Tobacco: Smoking has been found to play a role in the initial development of psoriasis. Heavy alcohol consumption can also trigger the onset of psoriasis. 

Psoriasis can be aggravated by Vitamin D deficiency, damage to the skin from sun exposure or cuts, and drugs such as lithium, iodides, anti-malaria medicines, and beta blockers.

Juicing For Psoriasis

Green juices offer the best benefits for healing the symptoms of psoriasis. These juices work to rebalance the body, eradicate toxins, microbes, and parasites from the body as well as nourish and repair skin cells.

Ingredients to Avoid When You Have Psoriasis

The main ingredient to avoid when you have psoriasis is tomato. This vegetable, which belongs to the nightshade family, can irritate the skin and cause overproduction of skin cells.

Avoid all tomato-based products including sauces, ketchup, and tomato juices.

Psoriasis Juice Recipes

Drinking at least two glasses of green juice and two liters of mineral water per day can help alkalize the body, get rid of toxins, heal the skin faster and keep the skin hydrated. Some herbs are especially beneficial to those suffering psoriasis.

RASHES

Rashes can affect adults and children alike. There are numerous types of baby rashes and equally diverse types of rashes that affect adults.

For adults, we’ll focus on heat rash, the most common type of rash.

Heat Rash

As the name suggests, a heat rash is caused by excessive heat which causes the skin to sweat profusely. The skin may become irritated and inflamed when sweat is trapped on the skin surfaces, resulting in a rash.

Obviously, heat rashes are common in the summer. While the rash may not be painful, it can itch and appear as red spots all of over your body and this may be discomforting.A heat rash usually disappears on its own without treatment.

Keeping your body cool in the summer can help prevent heat rash or alleviate the symptoms.

Dressing in light clothes, and drinking plenty of water and cooling juices can help to regulate your body’s temperature

Baby Rashes 

Rashes are a common and often harmless occurrence among newborns and toddlers as their skin is just developing the mechanism to fight off foreign elements. Common types of baby rashes include:

Cradle Cap

Cradle cap appears as crusty, greasy and thickened patches that are yellow in color. This type of rash forms on the scalps of newborns and will usually clear up by itself in a few months.

Diaper Rash

A rash around the baby’s diaper region could be as a result of prolonged contact with feces and urine. However, it is possible for your baby to develop a rash even with the best diaper management routine.

Creams and oils can help soothe and treat a diaper rash. Avoid rubbing the baby’s skin as this may increase irritation. If possible, allow your baby to go diaper-free for a while and be sure to change their diaper frequently.

Milia

Milia are small white bumps that typically appear on the cheeks, nose, and chin of newborns. Like other rashes, milia go away on their own but cleaning your baby’s face with mild soap and water can help clear out the bumps.

Baby Acne

Acne may appear as white or red bumps on your baby’s cheeks or forehead. Baby acne has been linked to exposure to the mother’s hormones during the course of pregnancy. These bumps usually disappear on their own. You can soothe your baby’s skin by cleaning their face with mild soap and water.

Baby Eczema

Eczema in babies appears as scaly and itchy patches that may crust over or ooze. Many babies age 5 years and below develop eczema but the condition clears out with age.

There is no cure for eczema—flare-ups come and go but this condition is treatable. It is important to identify and eliminate triggers that could worsen eczema. Be sure to keep your baby’s skin cool as heat can worsen eczema.

Bathe the baby at least twice a week instead of daily and pat their skin dry instead of rubbing. Use mild unscented moisturizers to keep the baby’s skin hydrated.

Ingredients To Avoid When You Have Rashes

Adult heat rash is a common occurrence in the summer. Juicing can keep you cool while ensuring that your skin remains healthy. If you are susceptible to rashes, stay away from:

  • Figs
  • Celery
  • Parsley
  • Lime

Juicing For Rashes

Heat Rash Juice Recipes

The best way to minimize the symptoms of heat rashes is to drink plenty of fruit and vegetable juices. These are great hydrators and sources of minerals that can boost your immunity and improve overall health.

Watermelon Juice

Watermelon Juice is packed with natural sugar, mineral, vitamins, and fiber. Not only is watermelon juice satiating; it also cools and hydrates the body, protecting you from the effects of a heat rash.

SUMMARY 

What’s really great about juicing is that there is so much room for experimentation so you can come up with your own unique blends.

When you have sensitive skin, be sure to eliminate ingredients that will worsen your condition. It is also a good idea to cut back on sugar and take your juices as raw as possible.

Be sure to incorporate vegetables, not just fruit, in your juices. Vegetables are packed with powerful minerals that will greatly help to heal your liver and skin.

It may take a while for you to see significant results with juicing but in the long run, you will enjoy the benefits of healthy, youthful, and beautiful skin.
