Food relation to acne

Acne is a complex skin condition, and its causes are still not fully known. Usually, it is impacted by our hormonal imbalance. When it comes to food relation to acne, we are constantly told which ‘bad foods’ we should avoid. However, there isn’t sufficient scientific evidence to back up the diet links to acne. Your diet cannot cause as well as cannot cure acne.

Nevertheless, there are certain nutritional components that can have a positive effect on your skin and help reduce acne.

I would like to list out a few, as not only are these components vital for your overall health but they can also help relieve your acne. To make things simpler for you, I will provide some food suggestions you can easily find in your local market or supermarket this summer alongside them:

  • Vitamin A is the essential component that impacts the skin’s health
  • Fatty acids: omega-6 and omega-3 – vital in maintaining hydration, strength, and smoothness of skin, yet our body cannot produce those acids by itself
  • Low glycemic foods –help you avoid blood sugar spikes which can lead to inflammation and, therefore, more acne
  • Antioxidants:
    • Vitamin E– antioxidant, that helps to protect skin cells from damage as well as helps maintain moisture in the skin
    • Vitamin C – antioxidant

Foods you should try this summer:

  • Vegetables such as spinach, bell pepper, carrots, pumpkin, and tomatoes (vitamin A)
  • Eggs (vitamin A and omega 6)
  • Nuts and seeds (omega 3 and omega 6)
  • Watermelon with seeds (vitamin C, omega 3 and omega 6)
  • Fish (omega-3)
  • Whole grains (low glycemic foods)

Special shoutout: Alps Puritea is our small family business. ‘Her Majestea’ is a wild oregano tea harvested in the Mediterranean Alps. Wild oregano has incredible anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits and can be enjoyed as a cup of tea, or you can make tea ice cubes and rub it on the skin topically as needed.

We are gifting our blog readers 20% off at with code ALPS20 valid until August 15th.

Do not restrict yourself and your diet, as it is a balanced diet that will bring the most benefits. Enjoy your pizza just as much as you enjoy your veggies!
