Eat Away Oily Skin

Aug 17, 2007
There are many people out there who have oily skin. Oily skin can be a nuisance and it can also be embarrassing when its results become translated through acne and increased shine. Interestingly, there are things that you can change that go into your mouth that will effect what comes out through your skin. When most people hear the word diet, they draw back, but just think of the possibilities when you tweak your diet and it helps your entire aesthetic appeal.

We have all heard the myths throughout the years, things like do not eat chocolate and soda will cause acne. Then reports came out that said that junk food did not in fact cause you to have acne. However, junk food does cause you to have more oil in your skin. If you have oilier skin, you will be more susceptible to clogged pores, and clogged pores will produce acne. Therefore, try to limit your unhealthy snack choices such as chips, candy bars, and cola beverages.

There are some other things that you can try to decrease your oil levels in your skin. Try to make a food journal before you try to alter your eating habits. Take a moment and be truthful and write down everything that you eat for one week. After the week is done, go back and see how many fried and processed foods you have been eating. You may be surprised at how many times you heated up a frozen dinner, cut out vegetables entirely, and reach for the flavored drink instead of the water.

After you can see all of your good choices as well as your bad in black and white, try to take a couple weeks and eat healthier. You will be surprised at what the toxins in bad food do to your face. You should also never forget to stay as hydrated as possible, regardless of your skin type, but it will help to decrease the oil in your pores. When you drink a large amount of water throughout the day think of it as a detoxification technique. Water has the ability to literally flush out your system and clean your pores from the inside out.

Your diet should be plentiful when it comes to proteins and you should try to cut out as much sugar, fluids from food, and salt that you can. Fruits and leafy vegetables are very abundant in water, so if you can eat more of these, you can make up for any lost hydration during the day. If you are not taking a multivitamin, and you have oily skin, now is the time to start. The more balanced your body is with the right minerals and vitamins, the more clear your skin will become.

Vitamin B2s are important in maintaining the skin and they can be found in foods such as organ meats, beans, yeasts, jelly, grain, nuts, and wheat germ. Oils are not only found in the skin, but they are in plenty of foods, so you should avoid adding any unnecessary excess. If you stay away from things like fatty foods, processed foods, and pork, you can cut down on your oil. If you are cooking with a recipe that calls for oil, try using something lighter like olive oil.

Also, there is no need to lower your immune system when you have oily skin. Avoid alcohol as much as you can. When you drink, your immune system lowers and it is harder to fight off the dirt and bacteria that is getting trapped into your face by the extra oils.

Oily skin is not going to be completely fixed by what you do or do not eat. However, there is nothing that can be harmful about making healthier choices when it comes to your diet. If you can do everything that you can to make your skin clear why would you not want to? Make all of the right choices when it comes to your skin and your diet, and watch your self esteem rise while your face becomes more clear.
