Heal Acne Naturally - Dump the Burgers, Eat the Peas and the Oysters.



In order to help yourself to heal acne naturally you should be asking yourself the question, what should I be doing about this problem?

So... we are going to try and help you by showing what you should be eating and what you should be avoiding, and we will give you the reasons why they are either good or bad.




Acne and a Zinc Deficiency

Research has shown that people suffering from acne tend to have a zinc deficiency.

Zinc promotes healing and is important for normal growth. Zinc reserves can however be depleted by periods of rapid growth, which probably coincides with the onset of teenage pimples.

Below is a list of foods which all have a natural source of zinc and will help heal acne naturally.

  • Chicken

  • Beef Shank

  • Pork

  • Lobsters

  • Pumpkin seeds

  • Plain Yoghurt

  • Almonds

  • Peas

  • Oatmeal

  • Baked Beans


Vitamin A and Acne

For decades Vitamin A has been dubbed the "skin vitamin."

This vitamin is also vital for good eyesight, so whilst caring for your skin you will also be looking after your eyesight.

The foods listed below contain Vitamin A which helps build a resistance to infection and promotes a healthy skin.

Although Vitamin A is important in the fight against pimples, don't take too much. Vitamin E can help regulate vitamin A levels and also helps in scar prevention which can be a result of a bad bout of acne.

  • Liver

  • Eggs

  • Apricots

  • Asparagus

  • Broccoli

  • Carrots

  • Garlic

  • Peaches

  • Pumpkin

  • Spinach




Fiber and Pimples

Fiber is essential for acne management.

Whilst fiber has little or no nutritional value, it forms an essential link in the body's digestive chain.

Fiber keeps the intestines in good working order which helps cleanse the gastrointestinal track.

  • Whole-grain cereals

  • Brown Rice

  • All kinds of Bran

  • Dried prunes

  • Nuts

  • Fresh fruit

  • Beans and peas

  • Fresh raw vegetables




Water for a smooth complexion

Water flushes toxins from the body, preventing them from coming out in the skin and therefore plays an important role when trying to heal acne naturally.

Water also keeps the skin from becoming dehydrated.

If the skin becomes dehydrated dead cells will not be properly eliminated which in turn can lead to blocked pores.

  • Water, water and more water.

  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day




 Learn to avoid the foods that will aggravate this condition

Excessive iodine can irritate pores and cause pimples to flare up. Iodine is contained in salt so steer well clear of all salted snacks and fast foods.


  • Hamburgers

  • Hot Dogs

  • French Fries

  • Fast Foods


Stay miles away from refined carbohydrates because they strip the fiber and healthy essential values from foodstuffs.

They also include unhealthy additives and preservatives, which should be avoided at all costs if you want to sustain a healthy skin.

  • Soft Drinks

  • Jelly

  • Processed Jams

  • Sweeties


Other Foods and drinks that are a big "NO NO" if you are battling with Acne

  • Alcohol

  • Butter

  • Caffeine

  • Cheese

  • Chocolate

  • Cream

  • Eggs

  • Hot and spicy foods
