Taking Good Care of Yourself

Eating a healthy diet is good for your body, and will ultimately help you feel better. Eating right will give your entire body, including your skin, the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.

Are there any foods you should avoid when you have acne? Maybe. A few small studies have shown a correlation between certain foods and acne severity. Dairy products and high glycemic index foods seem to be the worst offenders.

These foods don’t necessarily cause acne in a otherwise clear-skinned person, but may worsen existing acne breakouts. So, if a food seems to make your pimples worse, avoid that particular dish.
