Food for thought: the foods you eat are the ingredients your skin will use. If your skin acting up, adding these foods to your diet can help!

- Water:The prescribed 8 cups of water a day is equal to 2 liters. How are you measuring up?

- Healthy proteins:replace your meat based protein with vegetable protein such as legumes, lentils, chia seeds, quinoa, and eggs.

- Garlic:Help kill off any bacteria your body might be fighting

- Healthy fats:use olive oil for salad dressing, nuts and seeds for snacking.

- Unprocessed carbs:brown rice - whole grains regulate blood sugar, which helps skin flare ups

- Dark Berries: contain antioxidants and lots of fiber to help clear skin.

- Greens.Some are healthier raw and others cooked. Either way, more vegetables lead to better health and better skin

- Spices.Cinnamon and Tumeric are both great for anti-inflammation and sugar regulation.

- Probiotics.A healthy gut means clear skin - whether it’s acne, itchiness, or allergy inflammation. To get more probiotics in diet, eat fermented foods such as yoghurt, kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles, and miso soup. Kefir and kombucha are also chock full of probiotics.


In contrast, avoiding these foods will help clear your skin:

- Dairy

- Animal fat (especially red meat and pork)

- Processed sugar

- Alcohol

- Spicy food

- Caffeine

- Nicotine
