Acne Fighting Super Foods

Here are a few foods you should know about that can help your skin out a lot. I also cannot stress enough that drinking water (and plenty of it) and minimizing consumption of sodas and juices can help your skin, your health, and the way you feel tremendously! I got this article from ezinearticles.com check it out!

 "Treating acne using foods and herbs can be a great way to deal with acne. While some people might not think that it's possible to cure acne by just eating some herbs and change the course of a diet, based on my first hand experience, it is really possible doing so. This article will show you some of the best foods for acne and herbs that can really help dealing with the skin disorder.

1. Carrots are great for your acne and skin.

Carrot, which contains a lot of fibers and vitamin A as well as other vitamins and minerals, is really a must eat food. Why? Because the fibers in carrot can help detoxifying your body and the huge amount of vitamin A really is helpful to acne. The lack of vitamin A alone can cause acne, and when your body gets enough of vitamin A, it is possible to treat your acne condition really effectively.

So from now onwards, try to include more carrots in your meals and diet.

2. Ginger and garlic

Ginger and garlic are the world's best natural antibiotics. They both improve your immune system when consumed, and their anti inflammatory properties also mean that the swelling and redness caused by acne can be reduced to a great extent.

3. Papaya.

Papaya is also a very good fruit to have when you have acne. It helps with your digestion and enables your body to remove those unwanted toxins that create chaos in your body to be removed easily and effectively, and by doing so, it helps with your acne. Papaya also contains papain, an enzyme that is used to fight inflammation. By eating more papaya, you are effectively reducing the inflammation, swelling and redness caused by acne, making your zits less visible.

4. Diet Changes

Change your diet to a better one, and you stand a great chance to treat your acne completely. Avoid foods that are oily and contain a lot of food additives. Eat in more foods that are high in fiber and vitamins. Drink more water to flush the toxins out of your body. With those toxins flushed and removed, your immune system will be improved and your hormone secretion will be regulated, making your acne to disappear faster than you can imagine."


  1. It's true there are certain foods that you really should cut out of your diet even if you're an adult. Those foods give acne a foot hold over your skin and you really don't want acne to have any hold on any part of your body!
