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

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.
Fiber is essential for acne management, and the more you look after your skin now, you will reap all the benefits later by helping to prevent skin cancer later in life.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
