If You Want To Get Rid Of Acne, Eat These Foods

Like the saying, you are what you eat. One major component that affects your skin is your diet. Foods that trigger acne development are white bread, sugar, pasta, white rice, and in some cases chocolate. These foods stimulate the production of hormones, which cause excess oil to be created and secreted by oil glands onto the skin, thereby forming acne.

A diet that is low in simple sugars, can improve and reduce your risk of developing skin acne. Foods containing the following supplements are most beneficial to the skin because they reduce inflammation:

Zinc. Foods that are rich in zinc include: Beef, turkey, cashews, lentils, oysters and crabs, pumpkin seeds, and quinoa. Zinc is a dietary mineral relevant in skin development. In a study, researchers discovered that small quantities of zinc were associated with critical cases of acne. Therefore increased amount of zinc in the diet to treat people with severe cases of acne, pronounced a great improvement.

Omega-3s. These are found in certain plants and animal-protein, such as eggs and fish.

Antioxidants. These chemicals neutralize damaging toxins in the body.

Both omega-3s and antioxidants reduce inflammation. Studies have shown that an increase in consumption of omega-3s and antioxidants, played a major role in the reduction of acne, likewise improved their mental health, and reducing emotional distress.
