Can food cure acne?
Omega-3 fatty acids (found in salmon and fish oil supplements), antioxidants like Vitamins A, C and E, as well as flavonoids found in red wine, colorful fruits and vegetables, and green tea, all may have an anti-inflammatory effect on skin. Selenium and zinc may also be beneficial, as could a high-fiber diet, though all three require further study.
Dr. Danby recommends acne patients follow a dairy-free and low-glycemic diet for at least six months and has found that giving up dairy alone can be enough to cure acne, if that’s your trigger. Also, follow your instincts. If you suspect a specific food causes breakouts (be it milk, sweets or processed snacks), eliminate it for four weeks and see if your skin improves, suggests Schlessinger. In the end, as Dr. Fusco points out, it’s not rocket science: “What’s good for the body is good for the skin.”
