Don’t Overthink Diet and Acne
Healthy dietary changes can benefit many of the body’s systems, including the skin. Specifically, a diet full of high glycemic foods has the broadest effect on inflammatory skin conditions like acne, rosacea, and psoriasis. So enjoy a soda or chocolate cake every now and then, but remember all good things in moderation!
Bonus Skin Care Advice
What is the best way to get clear skin?
If you have your diet under control, or just need help with clearing up acne, it is essential that you establish a regular skin care routine. No matter what your skin type is, a skin care routine will help you reduce current skin health problems and prevent further issues from developing. Especially, if you already experience mild acne. Check out the skin care regimen blog.
What should I do if I have dry acne-prone skin?
Dry skin is often more sensitive and prone to breakout if not taken care of properly.
- Don’t Over-Wash your Skin
- Use a Light Moisturizer
- Cleanse Less Often
- Use A Non-Soap Gentle Cleanser
- Avoid Over-Exfoliating
- Don’t Use Make Up as Often
- Use a Humidifier
Additionally, you should look for skin care products that contain hyaluronic acid, and avoid products containing alcohol. These products increase how quickly your skin loses moisture, thus leaving you dried out.
How can one get rid of acne as quickly as possible?
First of all, you shouldn’t try to squeeze or pop pimples when they develop. Popping acne lesions can damage your skin leaving you with any number of acne scars.
Salicylic acid is a particularly helpful substance in the fight against acne. Try to find makeup products or skincare products to add to your routine.
Fighting acne is a long-term battle. As a result, quick fixes should not be the go-to answer. Read our past blog article for more about acne conditions and treatments.
