Fight breakouts from the inside out. If acne is a problem for you, then you might think those stereotypical foods - chocolate, greasy pizza, etc. - are causing it. That may be the case if all you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner is junk, but there are foods that can actually help quell your problem skin. Junk food in moderation is OK, but the more packaged salty, sugary or preservative-laden foods you put in your body, the worse off your skin will be. Foods that promote healthy skin are those that are "inflammation-friendly;" in other words, they don't cause an immune response in your body that treats the food like a toxin and releases free radicals. Antioxidant-rich foods quell those free radicals and promote a calmer system overall.
