10 foods to be consumed to get rid of pimples

  • The most important thing you can do to get rid of pimples is to drink plenty of water. Adults need 64 ounces of water every day, and that’s regular water, not water from juices or soups or sodas. Water will keep your skin hydrated and will help in flushing out acne-causing chemicals.

  • A handful of fresh (not frozen) berries is a great source of anti-oxidants and skin-healing phytochemicals such as beta-carotene. And they’re delicious!
  • Foods with whole grains, like cereals, breads, and pastas, are a good source of selenium, another chemical that’s helpful is clearing up and preventing acne
  • Cow’s milk is a great source of both vitamin A and vitamin D, both of which are good for healthy skin. For women, it’s also a great source of calcium, which we need a lot of anyway.
  • Apply cold, plain yogurt to your face once a day in the morning. Leave it on for just a minute or two (while you brush your teeth), then rinse off with warm water and pat dry. The vitamin A in the yogurt will help heal any existing acne, and will prevent it in the future.
  • This is a treatment you apply to your skin, not one you eat. To use it, mix a little fresh lemon juice with a teaspoon on granulated sugar and rub in small circles onto damp skin. This will fight pimples, and will also fade any old acne scars. Be careful not to get the lemon juice in your eyes (ouchie!) and also try a small spot on your inner arm before applying to your face — some people have a reaction to this mixture.
  • Olive oil and sesame oil are both good sources of mono saturated fats, which provide the fatty acids you need to nourish your skin and keep it clear of acne.
  • Another food item you can use on your face, not just in your tummy! Make a paste yourself at home, or buy one at a store. The oatmeal soothes irritated skin, and dries out acne-causing oil.
  • Just like walnut shells, apricot or peach pits have been used for decades as a skin treatment. Look for a facial scrub that contains these, and you’ll see an immediate improvement in your skin.
  • I love this one! Eat the watermelon for the vitamins, then rinse with cool water and gently rub the rind on your face. It contains the same vitamins you just ate, plus anti-oxidants to help healing and to smooth your skin.
