When it comes to fighting acne, your best bet is to go directly to the source. For many women, that means following up a skincare regimen with the right foods that can help your skin repair itself from the inside out.
The Beauty Department got a few tidbits of advice from Dr. Jessica Wu, a Los Angeles dermatologist who wrote the book Feed Your Face. Among her helpful hints was the fact that dairy can do a lot of harm to your skin if you’re already breaking out. The hormones associated with many varieties of dairy can be transferred into your body and stimulate your own hormones, making your skin more oily with more clogged pores.
Try using almond or soy milk as a substitute for milk, and choose organic, nonfat or skim dairy products for everything else, which don’t contain as many hormones.
Also, be sure to use an acne cleanser twice a day, like Exuviance – Moisturizing Antibacterial Facial Cleanser. Then, follow it up with Exuviance – Blemish Treatment Gel, which can help your skin restore its former glory.
