It is recommended to include a lot of fruit in the diet and they can be served as desserts It is especially worth eating apples and lemons because they are highly effective in improving the skin condition. Nevertleless, avoid oranges because they irritate the skin. This fact is based on some research. Remember to wash the fruit thoroughly before meals, as they may contain bacteria. Let your diet be rich in many vegetables which provide a lot of vitamins and minerals important for the reconstruction of the skin structure. Wholegrain products will provide your body with zinc useful for the proper functioning of the skin. Vegetable oils are also a good choice.

All products rich in animal fats affect the appearance of acne. They lead to the accumulation of toxins under the skin and oiling of the face. It is necessary to eliminate all kinds of junk food from the diet. Try to make sure that the products you eat do not contain artificial colorings and flavors, therefore you must give up all sweet drinks and artificial juices as well as sweets. Drinking coffee or alcohol also has a detrimental effect on the complexion, it is better to limit them. Do not abuse spicy seasonings because they irritate the skin and can lead to the pore blockage. Force yourself to quit smoking since the tobacco smoke has a bad effect on your skin and raises cholesterol. (2)
