If Products Are Not Working, Here Are 15 Foods That Help With Acne

Do your pimples stubbornly hang onto your skin even after spreading many layers of topical medicine, and spending frivolously on facials and lasers? Truth is your acne problem may not just be skin deep – there might be issues with your diet!

The adage “you are what you eat” comes in handy to explain this. Foods heavy on dairy, saturated fats, high-glycemic carbohydrates and trans fats can stimulate hormone production. This is a big no-no as it stimulates oil production, causing clogged pores and later acne.

If your goal is to own clear porcelain skin, these are the foods you should be reaching out for instead. Maybe having them in their og forms is a bit plain, but fret not. We’ll teach you how you can throw in these ingredients when cooking to spice things up.

Kale

Not a fan of anything green? Kale’s the one vege you must learn to LOVE. It’s rich in antioxidants, vitamins (vitamin A, B-6, C and K) and minerals (manganese, calcium, potassium, copper and magnesium). All the goodness you need to reduce hyperpigmentation and help skin cell regeneration.

Serve…tossed together with several other greens in a tangy salad or blitzed into a veggie juice with lemon and mint!
