Acne – a nightmare of many teenagers but also adults. Medical treatment is not always effective and scientists are still unsure whether dieting allows to eliminate unpleasant symptoms of acne.


I know a lot about acne from books, perhaps people who suffer from it, too. To learn more I talked with people who have acne skin about fighting this problem by means of dieting. I also read many accounts of such people. I noted all I have learnt and I am going to present my conclusions below.


  • highly processed food
  • colourful and fizzy drinks
  • products with a long expiration date
  • animal fats
  • sweets, chocolate as well
  • fatty dairy products, resign from cow dairy if possible
  • hot spices, mustard, mayonnaise
  • salt, especially iodized
  • alcohol

People who resigned from gluten enjoyed considerable improvement of their skin condition.


  • green vegetables (vitamin E, B6)
  • red vegetables (vitamin A)
  • vegetable fats, especially linseed oil
  • leguminous plants
  • grains
  • fish
  • wholegrain bread, rye preferably
  • if possible: fresh oysters and clams (zinc!)
  • seeds, vegetables, fruit rich in fiber
  • beetroot juice
  • oregano oil (5 drops before a meal)
  • calamus root

Aloe juice is worth drinking and putting it on the face with a cotton pad.

Regular workouts recommended!!!!

Stay healthy!
