Acne
A nutrient-rich, balanced daily diet is key to building and maintaining healthy skin. A diet rich in foods containing beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 is vital for a clear, glowing complexion. In general, a daily diet that provides 5 or more servings of fresh vegetables and fruits (including at least one citrus) will provide healthy amounts of skin-improving vitamins. Flaxseed oil and other foods high in omega-3 fatty acids should also be heartily consumed because of their role in skin health. Eating zinc-rich foods along with essential fatty acids may be beneficial. Liver-strengthening nutrients are recommended to improve acne and include protein from plant sources, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables. Because acne seems to be associated with Western diets, many experts advise acne sufferers to consume a diet high in fiber and low in fat and refined carbohydrates.
