What to Eat to Improve Your Acne

How’s your skin?

Mine’s pretty good, thanks.

I only had minor problems as a teen and very minor problems as an adult but I know / have known a lot of people who are not so fortunate.

I have heard all sorts of logical, believable, realistic treatments over the years as well as some truly bizarre one. I think the strangest was painting the spot with nail polish. I immediately had visions of someone walking around with Berry Red or Vibrant Blue spots on their face – until I realized that it was supposed to be clear nail polish.

I don’t usually post beauty tips – but I’m always interested in how foods affect our bodies.

And – at this point in my life I’m concerned about keeping my skin moist, supple, and elastic.

Healthy skin is healthy skin. Read on for some tips:

Hormonal Acne Diet: What to Eat to Improve Your Acne

Acne and pimples are perhaps the most common skin health problem for teenagers today (although older generations are not spared either). Because of this problem, they often turn to a beautician, and the first question they are asked there is a question about nutrition, that is… what they eat. The reason is simple – the condition of the skin depends on what we eat. An acne and pimple diet involves eliminating certain foods from your diet and increasing your intake of various vitamins and minerals that help reduce skin oil and prevent acne and pimples. First, spicy and fatty foods should be excluded from the diet: spices, vegetable oil, sauces, ketchup, mayonnaise, chips, fatty meats, smoked sausages, strong cheeses, as well as fast food (especially hamburgers and french fries). Read on to see what else you can include in your diet to improve your skin

Choose healthy snacks before bed 

Half a cup of blackberries or blueberries (can also be from the freezer – generally there is a large selection of quick-frozen berries in stores today that only need to be thawed and a nutritious and tasty snack is ready). If you follow the diet against acne and pimples for at least a month, you will achieve a significant reduction in rashes and improve the general condition of the skin.

Low glycemic index food

First of all, your acne diet should be based on foods that have a low glycemic index. You can often hear the term complex carbohydrates. Of course, you should not give up carbohydrates, it has long been known that it is the main fuel for the human body. Complex carbohydrates are good because they are digested in such a way that the sugar from them is released more slowly into the blood, they require a smaller insulin jump and they keep the blood sugar level stable for a long time. Therefore, there will be no excess insulin and skin oiliness will be reduced, and as a consequence, you will get less acne on your face. In addition to this, you also need to clean your face and make sure it breathes, that’s why you should use a hot towel for acne.

Flax seeds and salmon 

Omega-3 fatty acids hydrate the skin and prevent inflammation, so it is recommended that you consume foods such as salmon, flax seeds, and walnuts. As a prevention against acne, it is recommended to include fish in the regular menu at least three times a week. 

Pear and carrot 

In addition, retinol is an essential ingredient in many acne creams. Naturally, beta carotene can be taken directly into the body by consuming carrots, oranges, pears, and for prevention in the fight against acne, it is recommended that you eat at least half a cup of these fruits and vegetables a day to help control inflammatory processes and helps maintain skin elasticity. 

Red onions, garlic, and fish 

These are also foods that are rich in selenium. Tomato Vitamin C strengthens the surface layer of the skin and protects against scars caused by acne, which is why it is recommended to increase the intake of foods that are a treasure trove of vitamin C. and contain bioflavonoids that also act against inflammation. For oily skin, it is recommended to consume tomatoes, because you will reduce the secretion of sebum and the risk of acne.

Green leafy vegetables 

Kale and spinach are rich in vitamin E, which is otherwise responsible for pigment and protection against scars. It is recommended that you take some green vegetables into your body every day, either in the form of fresh drinks or in the form of a salad. If you consume it cooked, it is best to go through minimal heat treatment.
