Nothing is worse then a pesky breakout that ruins your week and clouds over your natural beauty. Do realize that it’s just not what you put on your skin that can help make a difference, but also what you are putting into your body? Eating well definitely makes a huge difference in your complexion, so knowing what to snack on will keep your face clear and your beauty in tip-top shape.
Acne is caused by the excess production of sebum, so keeping your pH balance is crucial to overall gorgeous looking skin. Eat lots of foods rich in Vitamin A and Zinc—think anything orange like apricots, carrots, mangoes and pumpkins. Chow down on Vitamin B, which is found in all your leafy greens including kale, spinach and even seaweed. Some research has suggested that acne can be related to a lack of Vitamin E, so try and eat mushrooms, nuts and soybean oils to keep up your levels.
A great way to get all you need in one sitting is to create a superfood acne fighting salad with a mixture of leafy greens topped with shredded carrots, sliced almonds, mushrooms and a great healthy oil dressing. Top it off with some grilled salmon, and your Omega 3′s are covered to guarantee seriously superb skin.
You should stay away from high fat foods, dairy products and, of course, too much sugar. Geez, stick to this diet and your skin will not only look beautiful, but you will loose a few pounds too!
