Foods That Kill Acne
Remember that old myth that said most teenagers have pimples and zits that will go away as soon as puberty is over? There are millions of adults in the world that can contradict it by showing that they are still fighting acne even though they are well past their teenage years. In fact, there is no age cap on acne – 20 year-olds can suffer from it just like teenagers and 50 year-olds.
A harsher truth about acne is that we still don’t know exactly what causes it. Sure, we know that fatty glands are responsible (obviously!) for fat building up under our skins, but what determines these glands to become hyper-active every once in a while and cause acne bursts? Some say it is connected to stress levels, other insist on proper diets to prevent acne and then there are those who speak of flawless hygiene to stop bacteria from amassing. While they are all right to some degree, there is a single factor that affects all people, irrespective of age, gender and race: genetics. Sadly, this is what plays the biggest part in the way your skin looks now and in the way it will look in your old age.
Still, even though the looks of our skin are genetically encoded within us, it doesn’t mean that we can just wait for disaster to strike. There are a number of things that we can do to fight the “bad genes” we inherit and a good, balanced diet is one of them. If you are fighting acne, you might have already heard that fat foods and chocolate are your worst enemies. This is true (plus, steering clear of such foods has numerous other benefits!), but you should also know what you can eat and should eat in order to keep acne under control. We prepared a small list of super foods to help you clean your complexion and avoid acne bursts:
