Acne, Explained

Even worse, popping the pimple opens a gateway for additional bacteria on your fingers which could prolong or even worsen the already infected pore. So the next time you have the urge to pop up a pimple, consider the consequences.

According to Acne.org, acne is likely caused by multiple factors, including hormones, inflammation, evolutionary biology, stress, vitamin deficiency, and diet, amongst others. Should this be the case, then we should consider changing our diet. Because diet can affect our hormones, body’s inflammation, and vitamin deficiency.


Cut all sugars (including honey, syrups and bottled fruit juices which are overloaded with sugar). Avoid soft drinks and any artificial sweeteners. Energy drinks have an excessive amount of sugar. Also, caffeinated bottled drinks and bottled synthetic vitamin water.

Reduce your consumption of fats and junk food. The western diet is too fatty, salty, and sugary while too low in vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain fiber.

Eat a high-fiber diet. High in fiber foods are fruits, vegetables, whole-grains cereals, whole-grain bread and crackers, bran, and legumes (beans, lentils, and split peas).

Avoid foods high in trans-fatty acids.

Limit foods high in iodine. High consumption of iodine can cause acne. Fast food has high quantities of iodine.

Consider getting a blood test to discover if you have food allergies. Food allergies can cause skin eruptions in some people. These could be chocolate, milk, refined carbohydrates (sweets), and soft drinks.

Detoxify your system through a cleansing diet which can be beneficial. When impurities are not eliminated through the kidneys and bowels fast enough, they can erupt through the skin.

Researchers are not certain if the association between dairy and acne is independently or synergistically due to the hormones in milk, milk protein, or the effect of milk on insulin and IGF-1 concentrations, so drink no more than one glass of whole milk per day. Or cut dairy at all. Hormones that are in dairy which causes inflammation. Cheap milk is homogenized and pasteurized and with added hormones.

Don’t forget to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Or drink water infused with cucumber daily for a week. It can purify the blood and lymphatic system, resulting in a clearer complexion.

You might also try the Elimination Diet, an effective means of identifying those foods that are causing problems.


Essential Nutrients To Fight Acne

Get your vitamins from a natural source instead of supplements. Vitamins are in their pure form and work best if it came from real food.

Vitamin A reduces sebum production. Be aware though that the side effects may result from high doses of supplemental vitamin A. Beta-carotene, found in fresh fruits and vegetables, is a wiser choice. It is converted to vitamin A as needed by your body. Be aware that too much consumption of vegetables that are high in carotenoids (like carrots); the yellow, orange, and red organic pigments to impart color to human skin, in particular, contributing to normal skin yellowness.

Vitamin B6 is beneficial for premenstrual acne breakouts. Kale, spinach, and green pepper are great sources of vitamin B6.

Folic Acid found in spinach, kale, and beet greens are good sources of folic acid and may be beneficial.

Selenium with vitamin E may normalize glutathione peroxidase levels. Red swiss chard, turnip, and orange are a source of selenium and spinach, asparagus, and carrot are sources of vitamin E.

Chromium improves glucose tolerance levels and enhances insulin sensitivity. Potato, green pepper, and apple are rich in chromium.

Zinc is important in wound healing, inflammation control, and tissue regeneration. Ginger root, parsley, and carrot are good sources of zinc.

Essential fatty acids may be helpful, along with a low-fat diet. Deficiency in fatty acids may result in acne. Pure cold-pressed flaxseed oil is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, as are cold-water fatty fish and green vegetables.

Cut out unnecessary oil. It’s calorie-dense and not nutritionally dense. Other than Omega-3, don’t look to add oil your diet.
