As I see it, any outbreak of acne is an emergency. If you’re waking up to new outbreaks in the morning, you want some help, am I right?
If you’re still struggling with a long-standing problem with acne, you really do truly want and need some help, because it’s a continuing nightmare. Well, isn’t it?
It’s well known that stubborn and recurring skin breakouts of any kind – whiteheads, blackheads, pustules (commonly called pimples), cysts, and nodules – can lead to lower self-esteem and even depression; both of which can have long term negative ramifications (to say the least!).
I well remember what it was like when I was growing up and getting new breakouts every day. It was depressing and miserable. So, I thought the following ideas might help you.

How To Get Rid Of Acne Diet
There have been numerous studies – over a long period of time – to try to get scientific evidence of a link between the foods you eat and prevalence of acme.
In fact, there are some proven links between your diet and your skin condition. The big challenge is there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
But, you can custom design a diet plan that will work for you. There are some important guidelines that may apply to all people. The final diet that might help you with clearer skin can be determined by your own personal trial and error.
What you eat affects how your body functions overall, and your skin is your biggest organ. So it stands to reason that what is good for acne isn’t much different than what’s good for a healthy body overall. The biggest takeaway from recent studies on diet and acne is that a low-sugar, well-balanced diet is ideal for reducing inflammation and regulating hormone (and thus, sebum) levels. Here are a few universal tips that can start your skin healing right away:
- Drink plenty of water. Our bodies are mostly water, anyway, and it’s important to hydrate regularly throughout the day. Water is the foundation of healthy, clear skin so aim for 8 glasses of water every day.
- Eliminate sugary sodas. If water and low-sugar
isgood, sodas full of chemicals and sugar are bad. When I was a teenager (age 15 – 18), I was drinking 8-10 16 oz. bottles of Coca-Cola every day. It’s a wonder my entire head wasn’t just one giant pimple!
- Try adding green tea to your daily routine. Try incorporating green tea into your diet – it’s rich in polyphenols. Polyphenols increase blood-flow and oxygen to the skin, improving its overall look, feel and most importantly, health.
- Avoid processed foods. Based on my personal journey with processed foods, I can testify that processed foods can be killers – of skin and lots of other things. Since I do all the dinner meal prep at my home, I sometimes do grab a frozen meal to cut down on my work on a night I might be really tired. During my last store trip, I picked up a frozen boneless chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and a vegetable. The closer was it also had a brownie! I’m on a sodium-restricted diet. In addition to the various chemical and fats, that one dinner had 800 calories and 1,150 grams of sodium. I haven’t been able to bring myself to getting it out of my freezer. It’s like a food time bomb in my freezer – for which I paid good money. Yuk.
- Green, leafy vegetables can only help your skin. Proponents recommend beets, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, kale, lettuce, onions, peas, peppers
andspinach. It’s not rocket science – the more vegetables you incorporate, the clearer your skin and the healthier your body.
