Three Dietary Changes That Can Improve Your Acne

Can These Diet Tips Help Your Acne Condition?

The link between acne and diet is a worthwhile point to consider if you're one of the many people who suffer from acne. The problem is, not many dermatologists are willing to make recommendations about diet changes or even admit there's a link between diet and acne breakouts. The mainstream medical community typically relies on prescription medication and other procedures to treat the condition. Diet can, however, play an important role in your acne fight. Here's some information no acne sufferer should be without...

It’s Tea Time

I’d love to say that everyone should drink green tea, but I realize that not everyone likes it. When it comes to fighting acne, however, almost any tea will do.

Acne is a condition related to decreased immune function. Green tea, and really any tea that contains an abundance of antioxidants, can help your immune system thereby reducing your acne.

The less processed the tea is, the more antioxidants it will contain. White tea is the least process tea, so therefore contains the most antioxidants. Green tea is next followed by red or black tea. If black tea is your favorite, drink a few cups of black tea a day. You’ll still benefit from the antioxidants in it even if it doesn’t contain as many as white or green teas do.

Eat Less Dairy

While the government heavily promotes dairy consumption for all Americans, dairy can wreck havoc on your skin -- especially if you have acne. Eliminate dairy for one month, no matter how hard it is, and see if you notice a difference in your skin. If you notice some improvement, should stick with it.

Consume Less Sugar

Eating too much sugar depletes your immune system and wrecks havoc on your hormones and blood sugar levels. These all increase your risk of acne. Ignore your sweet tooth and give up the sugar. If you can’t give up sugar completely, drastically cut back. Have just one dessert or candy bar once per week. You should notice an improvement in your skin’s appearance in about a month.

Remember, diet changes may not be easy but they are worth it in the long run. Especially if your diet changes drastically reduce your acne breakouts.
