I’ve dealt with acne at different points in my life, and finally learned to turn to foods to cure acne, instead of messy, costly, and often ineffective creams and gels. During last couple of years, I had no idea how bad I was literally “feeding” my acne. I ate a good bit of sugar, refined bread and grains, processed foods and fast food. I suffered terrible acne that made me extremely self-conscious. Now, I became a little upset that I had never been told the answer to my problems was through my food choices, not another container of Clean and Clear or Proactive Solutions. I learned how my foods were controlling my hormones. I made drastic changes to clear up my face. I got rid of all sugars, dairy, processed foods, fruit juices, and refined carbs. I also learned what foods actually heal acne. Here are my top foods to cure acne, all used from experience and with success. If you suffer from acne, consider eating these foods and dumping the aforementioned ones. You’ll not only have great skin, but feel better, look better and be healthier.
If you’re having a hard time giving up starches, turn to sweet potatoes! Who doesn’t love these little gems? They are so tasty and actually lower your blood sugar, which is key to preventing acne. When your blood sugar spikes after eating high glycemic carbs, your body’s hormones get out of whack, which leads to acne. Sweet potatoes lower blood sugar levels, stabilize your insulin secretion, and also contain tons of Vitamin A. If you eat one per day, you’ll even get a natural little glow that appears as if you have a tan! Sweet potatoes are also rich in B vitamins, which are great for the skin.
