Simple Acne Reduction Tips : Changing Your Diet

One of the first things that you should consider when attempting to reduce or get rid of your acne is your diet, the things that you eat and drink every day.

As the old cliché goes, you really are what you eat, and so if your diet is poor, then you cannot expect to be entirely healthy either. Your acne problem will certainly not be improved by a diet that is centered around the consumption of the wrong foodstuffs and liquids.

Here is a list of dietary considerations that may help to alleviate your acne problems in an entirely natural and healthy manner:

• Drink lots of water: Water is essential for healthy, supple and young looking skin, and has long been known to be one of the most effective treatments for any kind of adverse skin condition. This is partially because of its slightly alkaline nature (pH 7.3) and also the fact that it naturally prevents dehydration which can be a cause of the sebaceous glands over-producing oil and sebum. Basically, your skin needs plenty of water to function most efficiently, and for this reason, most dermatologists and other skin care specialists recommend a minimum water intake of between six and eight glasses every day.

• Cut out the wrong fats: Everyone knows that the average Western diet is far too rich in all the wrong types of fats and oils. With the prevalence of deep fried and ‘fast’ food, the average diet that the modern teenager consumes is a natural aid to any acne problems that they may suffer.

That is not to say that all fats are necessarily acne-friendly (as we will see) but those that contain trans-fatty acids such as milk and milk products, shortening and margarine certainly are. In addition, artificially hydrogenated vegetable oils (which are what are most commonly used to cook fried and fats food) should be avoided, if possible.

While eating such fats does not necessarily cause acne, there is no doubt that the fats that are contained in such food items as ice cream, cheese, bacon and milk make the skin more prone to problems.

The bottom line is that pimples and skin blemishes are at least partially caused by poor diet and improper hygiene, and consuming a diet that is rich in the wrong kind of fat and sugar is simply asking for trouble!

• Polyunsaturated essential oils: These oils are called essential because that is exactly what they are – necessary for a long and healthy life. The two primary oils that man needs are the Omega-6 and Omega-3 oils, and, while the human body is in theory capable of producing them itself, it is relatively inefficient at doing so.

For this reason, these need to be taken on board through your diet, and, as far as the health of your skin is concerned, it is the Omega-6 essential oils that are most important. Oil rich fish and fish-oil based food supplements like cod liver oil and other fish oils are the richest source of these essential oils.

Even in the case of these essential oils, however, the current Western diet is not ideal, simply because the balance between Omega-6 and the Omega-3 is skewed. Most experts agree that throughout human development, the balance between Omega-6 and 3 was approximately 2:1.

However, the balance in the UK is now closer to 8:1, while in the USA it is 10:1 and in Australia it is closer to 12:1. Experts have no way of knowing at what point such imbalances will become harmful rather than beneficial, but there seems to be little doubt that at some point, that situation will manifest itself.

So, eating a couple of portions of fatty fish like salmon every week will almost certainly help reduce acne related problems, principally because both of the Omega essential oils (present in salmon and other fish) are known to have marked antiinflammatory qualities.

If that is not possible, a daily dose of cod liver oil would be an effective alternative.

• Raw vegetables: A skin friendly diet is one that emphasizes eating raw or lightly cooked vegetables, especially those of the leafy green variety that are rich in fiber as well as containing essential trace minerals. You should also include complex carbohydrates such as potatoes, pasta, rice and whole-grain bread because these also add additional fiber to your diet, which is important for keeping your system clean and free of accumulated toxins.

Try to eat three healthy meals a day and avoid snacking, as this is inevitably when you will turn to fatty or sugary foods.

Foods that are rich in vitamin A such as broccoli and apricots will help keep acne at bay, as will lean red meat and whole grains, as they are rich in zinc. However, do not overdo the vitamin A, because, as suggested previously, your body will expel it extremely slowly, and a build up of too much in your body can be harmful as well.


Like it or not, a fat laden diet is not good for your health in general, and will certainly not help you to deal with your acne problems. A healthy, balanced diet that is rich in the kind of foods highlighted above (especially raw vegetables) will, however, certainly help you. When you make the switch, however, be prepared for a few days of ‘diet backlash’ as your system gets used to the new regimen. You may find that you are noticeably more irritable than usual, and that you suffer bouts of nausea and headaches.

That is your body purging itself of all the toxins and other harmful substances that you have accumulated as a result of your previously poor diet, so, once you have got over the first couple of days, the bad feelings will soon disappear.

However, once your system is cleaned out in this way, and you switch to your new healthier diet, it is not only your acne problems that will decrease dramatically.

You will also find that you have far more energy than you ever had before and a marked improvement in mental clarity, so that you become a more effective and productive individual too.

In addition, eating a diet that is based on raw and lightly cooked vegetables as well as plenty of fish helps to slow the aging process down, and should lead to a marked improvement in the general quality of both your skin and your life!

And doing all of this just needs a simple change of diet – what could be more natural than that?
