How to Fight Acne: Foods that Combat Pimples [HOW TO]

Eat Foods Containing Vitamin A

If you want to get rid of those annoying whiteheads and blackheads, you have to make some changes in your diet. That means eating more fruits and vegetables while steering clear of junk foods or chocolate. In particular, eating foods containing vitamin A will help you see fewer breakouts, especially when you consume foods such as carrots, salmon, broccoli, and spinach.

Other Vitamins that Keep the Skin Clear

Vitamins C and E are antioxidants that are good for skin health too and as they reduce the risk of the inflammation related to the formation of pimples. Fruits, such as grapefruits and oranges are good sources of vitamin C while sweet potatoes, avocados, and leafy greens contain plenty of vitamin E.

Vitamin E and Selenium

Vitamin E also works well to fight against acne when combined with selenium, which is a mineral that fights the free radicals that can lead to skin damage. In fact combining the two nutrients has been proven in research studies to notably improve the skin of acne sufferers. Foods that are good sources of selenium include eggs, tuna, Brazil nuts, and brown rice. Selenium is included in wheat germ as well which also contains vitamin E, so this is an excellent acne-fighting food.

Stay Acne-free with Foods that Contain Zinc

Zinc, too, is effective in fighting acne. In fact the nutrient is downright unfriendly to any blackheads or zits. It can be found in such foods as wheat germ (again, the perfect food to eat to prevent breakouts), almonds, and turkey. Omega-3 fatty acids will also stop acne from showing up unexpectedly. The acne fighters are found in cold water varieties of fish, such as salmon, and in sunflower seeds and walnuts.
