Acne Attack: 3 Foods to Help Combat Outbreaks

“For most of us, the most common and unfortunate side effect of skin problems is isolation. We don’t want to be seen the way we look. You can hide a lot of physical flaws, but not acne. It’s right there, on the first thing people notice about us – our face. And it’s hard for some of us to imagine that people can see the face – the PERSON – behind the acne.”  ― Yancy Lael

Acne outbreaks temporarily ruin your complexion on an aesthetic level, but pimple overload can often wreak havoc on our self-esteem. It is important not to live acne as a drama. Most adolescents suffer from outbreaks, so, make sure you use strategies to face the problem, and avoid that self-conscious feeling of being observed.

Famous celebrities who have struggled with acne

Heads up! It is not only the girl next door who must combat the dreaded zit, but many famous celebrities also have to deal with the appearance of acne at the most inconvenient times. Although resorting to makeup to cover pimples and imperfections is possible, the makeup doesn’t always eliminate the evidence, and skin may seem unnaturally shiny and uneven. Famous stars like Cameron Diaz, Rihanna and Katy Perry have a history of struggling with oily skin, pimples, and blemishes. Even stars like Miley Cyrus suffer from acne. The presence of pimples and imperfections depends on hormonal factors but also on stress and pollution. Emma Stone, another famous actress suffered from relentless chin acne during her teenage years, and although she covered the redness with makeup, her skin was not homogeneous and uniform. Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, and Scarlett Johansson, all dealt with acne during adolescence, as well.


As noted, acne is one of the most common skin problems during adolescence, but it can also appear in other periods of life. Eliminating it is not always easy, but an extremely important lifestyle aspect is diet: make sure you follow a diet rich in fundamental nutrients as opposed to fats and sugars. The following are 3 useful measures to incorporate in your daily diet regime to promote skin wellness:

  • Water: Water and all foods that contain good amounts of water such as melon, watermelon, cucumber, etc. help the body to eliminate toxins, which leads to purer skin. Drink lukewarm water and lemon every morning on an empty stomach to flush your system of impurities.
  • Olive Oil: Topping salads and vegetables with extra virgin olive oil is an effective way to prevent acne. This condiment is rich in vitamin E, excellent for skin. Incorporate this vitamin on a daily basis, adding foods such as hazelnuts, almonds, soy and green leafy vegetables to your diet.
  • Apples: Among the most recommended fruits to combat acne is the apple which, thanks to the presence of pectin, has a beneficial anti-acne action. Make sure you to choose organic apples so that you can also eat the skin, the most nutritious part of the apple.

The psychological effects caused by acne are often underestimated by the individual’s parents, family members, and unfortunately, sometimes, even by the doctors themselves. In general, those who truly understand the acne drama are the patient, the dermatologist, and a friend or parent who has suffered in the past. Make sure you maintain good communication with your loved one to offer emotional support when needed.
