A very common question in my practice is – “Please suggest some healing foods for acne prone skin”


Here are some of the foods that help your skin heal better.


Healing foods for acne are advised on the basis of the type of acne and the various triggers identified in a particular case. For example, in case of acne caused due to overproduction of sebum, foods rich in vitamin A play a beneficial role. Foods rich in vitamin B6 are good for acne triggered due to hormonal changes, like irregular periods. Foods rich in vitamin c and zinc reduce inflammation and enhance the immune system keeping the bacteria under check. For acne caused due to constipation, include salads and fruits in your diet. Foods rich in gamma-linolenic acid like flax seed and evening primrose oil are good for preventing clogged pores.
