More common during adolescence, acne can also appear in people who are genetically prone to it. However, there are some foods that can help you fight acne and others that can damage (quite a lot!) the beauty of your skin.

Diet for acne prone people

According to dermatologist Priscilla Pereira's tips on Instagram, a balanced diet can help prevent acne. That is why including some of these foods is important in fighting the problem.

What to eat?

According to the specialist, it is recommended to eat fish because of the minerals and anti-inflammatory effect of its composition. In addition, yellow fruits and vegetables are recommended due to the presence of beta-carotene, which helps fight the inflammatory process.

What to avoid?

If you are trying to reduce the intake of foods that increase acne, you should avoid dairy and foods with a high glycemic index. For that reason, avoid consuming foods that are high in fat and try to adopt healthy habits.
