Dalmatians are cute and spots look good on them and not you! Pun definitely intended!

Well, no matter how much you’re burning your pocket on those expensive creams and ointments, if you’re not eating right then you’re surely not doing it right!

It is actually a substance called sebum that is secreted from your skin and that depends on how oily, dry, or acne-prone your skin is. But a good diet also plays a major role in your skin’s health. Let’s check out a few of our worst offenders...

Sugar

A diet that is low on sugar is the best one for reducing inflammation and hormonal fluctuations. Let’s just say goodbye to chocolates and pastries for a while! Ouch! But then if your skin is raging out of acne, then this one’s a good step for starters.

Spicy and Oily Food

Ever wondered why your friends from the hills have such awesome glowing skin? Or maybe Alia Bhatt? That flawless glow is nothing but a good healthy diet devoid of junk food and spices. Avoid foods that have processed fats like pizza, burger, chats or anything that’s not cooked at home. Excess oils and spices are not easily digested and hence they show up on your face.

Try having fresh fruits, simple home-cooked food with less oil and no spices, you’ll see a better version of yourself in a week’s time

We’re sorry but yes coffee too! Come on a little sacrifice and go a long way, especially if you’re best friend or sister is getting married in a few months. Coffee’s high caffeine percentage might wake you up from your slumber but in the bargain, it’ll bring your skin down and dull. Indulge in some herbal tea girl, green tea could be good for starters and that also makes your skin glow!

Dairy

And like always...we urge you to follow a healthy lifestyle that’s pure and vegan. Just saying that a pure lifestyle is good for your skin too. For instance the cow’s milk that you drink comes from pregnant cows and contains high levels of a female hormone called progesterone. This can cause an off-balance in your hormone levels and cause an acne breakout if you are already suffering from one. It’s not the end of the world, you can always shift to almond milk or soya milk....yum!

Pickles

Nope, we’re not talking about your veggies in vinegar...but in India pickles are more of a legendary item in lavish dining. Indian pickles are full of spices and oils that could almost drip into an ocean (too much) but we’re not kidding! Ladies, we know how much you love those spicy tangy pickles with your dal-chawal but avoid. You’ll see your foes disappearing in no time!

We’ve given you all the ‘go away acne’ gyan...now it’s your turn to follow and glow!
