Acne fighting food

Breakouts are always annoying!!  To prevent it, we have to take care of our skin inside and out.  Here are some foods that you can eat to help minimize your acne.

  1. Almonds (Brazil nuts as well) – its rich in antioxidant named selenium which helps protects skin’s elasticity and also reduce inflammation.
  2. Spinach – high in vitamin A, K and iron which prevent breakouts and also protects against future spots!
  3. Green Tea, Cherries or Blueberries – are great source of antioxidants which helps protect skin against free radicals therefore preventing breakouts.
  4. Eggs – rich in vitamin E which protects skin from scarring.
  5. Oranges, Melons, Strawberries and Tomatoes – all are great source of Vitamin C like eggs help protect skin from scarring and also heal irritated skin.
  6. Salmon, Walnuts and Flax Seeds – all great source of omega-3 fatty acid which works to help reduce inflammation from the inside of your skin and also outside.
  7. Oatmeal – magnesium found in oatmeal is known to balance hormone.  Imbalance in hormone is known for breakouts.
  8. Carrots are rich in vitamin A and beta-carotene which helps the body absorb selenium to reduce inflammation or that huge red one on your skin.

I am sure you guys know this already, but please try to avoid eating foods that are oily, have refined sugar, processed or high levels of sodium.  They are known to cause major breakouts and bloating!!

Drinking water also helps reduce the amount breakout because it flushes out all the impurities from your system and it makes your skin glow.  My favorite acne fighting foods are almonds, oranges, blueberries, salmon and spinach.
