Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterGoogle+Pin on Pinterest


Acne foods: your diet and overall health affects your skin.
  • Bromides (found in chocolates),
  • Vitamin B12, and
  • Some drugs (like epilepsy and other neurological medications, steroids in asthma inhalers, etc.)

are well-known causers of acne.

Inflammatory foods—processed foods and drink (most things that come in a bag, can, or bottle) and fried foods are also known to trigger acne.

Try to opt for a healthier diet and lifestyle:

  • Get 7-8 hours of sleep each night
  • Exercise: cardio 2-3 times a week and weight-bearing (yoga, pilates, weights) another 2x a week.
  • Control stress: meditate, pray, make time for quiet reflection
  • Eat better: cut out the processed foods (less pre-packaged anything; white flour, bread and pasta; animal meats…more fresh fruits and vegetables; brown rice and less processed flour and pasta; more small fish rich in omega-3 oils).
