How To Clear Your Skin With Diet

I’ve been hard at work for the past few months working on my first product. Yay!! I’m very very excited about this. I started this blog in January 2016 to help women like me, who suffer from acne.

Since then I’ve had hundreds of people email me and I’m thrilled to say I’ve helped a lot of people. The reason I started with the intention it was only for women was because as a woman myself, I seriously thought my methods would work only for women. But I’ve had men as well who email me and who’ve got results from the tips I give them. So extra happy to have both men and women reading my blog and getting results.

I did get a lot of hateful comments from men who said I was being sexist. Please note that these men did not have acne. They just made the hateful comments. The men who had acne just emailed me and asked straight up for help.

Coming back to my book, a few months back I sent all the people on my email list an email asking which topic would be most helpful to them.

The list of topics I sent out was as follows

1. DIY Skin Care for Acne
2. DIY Face Masks for Acne
3. The Acne Healing Diet
4. What You Can do to get rid of your Acne Quickly

The response was overwhelming and the response was No. 3 which was “The Acne Healing Diet“.

So I got to work on my book and it’s almost done. It will be out in a few days time.

Here are a few things I’ve learned over the last few years about how to clear your skin with diet. I explain them in detail in my book. And here are some I thought I would share with you.

1. You Can Clear Your Skin With Diet Alone

You don’t need fancy skin care or even acne creams to clear your skin. It’s always a fear that if you don’t apply something to your acne, it will go out of control or you will get more acne.

However what I’ve come to realize is that, if tomorrow if you quit using all your skin care products and just change your diet, your skin will start healing on its own. Even a small diet change helps.

In fact it might be better to just leave your skin alone and your skin will benefit from it. The diet changes you make will start to work and your skin will start to clear up.

Acne is caused by conditions in the body which have been created by diet. Diet can also fix these conditions.

Diet causes acne and diet fixes it as well. Never forget this.

2. You Don’t Need Loads of Supplements To Get Clear Skin

Most diet books for acne will have you believe that you need bucket loads of supplements to get clear skin and that is the only way you can get rid of acne. However most people who have clear skin do not take supplements at all. Clear skin is not a result of supplements but rather a outcome of a healthy body.

When you have acne your body maybe deficient in antioxidants and some fatty acids. But this does not mean you have to pop supplements right, left and center. You may need to take a few supplements when trying to heal but you don’t need to take them forever.

I am generally not a fan of supplements and I feel it is always better to get what you need from your diet. However, I also know that sometimes that may not be possible and that supplements can be quicker.

However, you do not need to buy every possible supplement under the sun.

3. You Can Live in Any Country and Eat Any Diet and Still Clear Your Skin

When I bought my first book that promised a cure for my acne, the diet was mainly written to suit someone in the US. I lived in the UK at the time and finding what I needed was a little tough. I then bought another book which of course made it harder for me when I moved out of the UK.

Besides that most diets are mostly oriented and written for people living in Western countries .They don’t take into account the fact that diets and foods available may change from country to country and that people are used to eating different foods all over.

My readers come from all over the world and I need to take into account that they may eat different things depending on which country they come from or live in. I’m Indian and I eat rice. Well, let me rephrase that, I need to eat rice. Ask me to stop and you’re going to be getting dirty looks from me. A

4. Any Diet Can be Made Skin Friendly

No matter where you live and what you eat, you can always change your diet to be skin friendly. When I say change, it does not mean change completely. It just means you examine your diet, add certain things and take certain things out. Paleo diets are all well and good but not everyone can follow them. And not everyone wants to and they should not have to.

5. Local Diets are The Best

I always encourage people to eat what their ancestors ate or what the people of the region they live in eat. However simple those diets may seem, they are the best. I also encourage people to eat local. That means eat what you get around you. However that advice may be a bit outdated as these days you get everything, everywhere and at any time of the year.

6. You Don’t Need Organic Foods

As much as organic food is much better than what you get in the supermarket, not everyone can afford it. It may also not be available to most people. So while if you can it would be better to eat organic, don’t stress too much about it.

7. There Are Many Foods That can cause Acne

When I cured my acne by cutting out sugar, I thought “Great, now I can just tell all people who have acne to cut out sugar’. I was sitting on my high horse. I was brought down very quickly as I figured out that almost everyone’s acne is unique. What causes my acne may be completely different from yours.

While I get acne when I eat sugar, there are people who get acne when they eat any form of dairy. These people may eat sugar and have no complaints. Then there are other people who quit sugar, dairy and still have acne.

Acne is tricky and complicated. It is not only caused by eating certain foods but to make things complicated you can get acne because you do not eat certain foods. Are you confused yet?

I explain all these things in my book. If there is anything you want me to include or if you have any questions either comment below or email me at

The Best Foods That Clear Acne

When it comes to clearing acne, our skin needs all the help it can get. One of the best ways of helping it is through the food we eat.¬† Of course there are still people who say that diet and acne are not connected. My personal favorite (which annoys me of course ) is “There are no scientific studies that prove that acne and diet are connected”. If you’re out of your teens and still struggling with acne, let me tell you the quickest way to clear and acne free skin is through diet. Even if you do not have acne, adding the below foods to your diet can make your skin glow and look so much better. Do try it out and let me know. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Is Acne Genetic?

Most people who have fought with acne and continue to fight with it in adulthood eventually ask this question. Not that knowing the answer does much to help, but it does answer the question as to why you have acne. Where acne is concerned we do need answers as to why we in particular are affected. We need to know why we have acne while our friends don’t.

If your parents had acne, it is more than likely you will have acne. But before you despair let us think about it for a while. You will inherit your skin type from your parents. People with acne generally have overactive oil glands and skin that does not shed dead skin cells properly. You may inherit these conditions. Also you will probably eat the same or similar diet your parents had in their teens or adulthood. People generally tend to bring their childhood foods to the families they go on to have.

So is acne really genetic? Well, not really. While the tendency or likelihood to get acne is genetic, acne itself is not genetic. Just because either of your parents suffered does not mean you will suffer. But this also means that you can get acne regardless of whether anyone in your family had it.

The question if you have acne is, does it really matter if it’s genetic or not? There’s nothing you can do about genetics but there is a lot you can do about your diet, lifestyle and skincare. There are much worse genetic illnesses you can inherit. Some of these you can do nothing about. They may restrict the quality of your life and your ability to live life completely. If we’re being completely honest acne does none of these things. It may make you feel ugly or less confident but acne does not stop you from running or doing anything you feel like doing.

If you arrived here looking for the answer to this question, the best thing for you to do right now is to look forward and look for ways to cure your acne. It does not matter whether acne is genetic or not. There is nothing you can do if it is genetic or not. You are here now, with all the genes that make you unique. Focus on fixing your acne.
