Aside from excessive heat , dirt and stress, what you put in your body also matters when it comes to causes of acne.

Here are foods you eat that cause acne and three that help deal with acne.

Foods not to eat

Sugar

It’s no secret that sugar can cause breakouts. If you suspect that this food is the cause of your breakout then try cutting back on having too much of it.

Junk food

Junk food contains high amounts of fat which can sometimes prove to be too much when it comes to the health of your skin. Avoid taking too much junk food and opt for healthier options plus drink a lot of water in the process.

Hypo-glycemic foods

These are foods such as white rice, potatoes, cookies and cakes. They are foods that break down quickly in the body thus triggering the blood sugar levels.

Foods to eat

Green tea

Green tea has anti-oxidants that protect from environmental stressors which in turn help your skin in the process.

Fish

Any food that contains omega 3 fatty acids is good for your skin. Omega 3 can be found in fish, walnuts and flaxseed.

Fruits and veggies

Fruits and vegetables contain beta-carotenes which naturally help reduce skin oils and they are all naturally anti-inflammatory.

Dark fruits such as berries help clear out impurities in the body.
