1. Olive oil:
Olive oil provides good fats that our bodies need. Oils like olive oil and sesame oil have essential fat acids that are required for good health. These nourish our skin from the inside out.
2. Green tea:
Rich in a chemical called catechins which is an anti-inflammatory. It helps prevent acne as well as reduce the signs of aging.
3. Seeds and Nuts:
Seeds and nuts are rich in Omega 3 oils. These oils are also found in oily fish like salmon, and in flaxseed oil. Omega 3 oils are a powerful antioxidant which help the skin remain supple.
4. Lemon water:
Lemon water helps to stimulate and detoxify the liver and expel fat deposits. It also helps your body to produce more enzymes in the liver to help with detoxification. Because the liver helps remove toxins from your body, it can not remove toxins which are pushed through your skin. This means those toxins become prime breeding grounds for bacteria that cause acne. In order to survive acne causing bacteria need specific conditions to breed, those are areas with low oxygen and high acid levels. The minerals in lemons help offset the acid pockets that can form in our skin.
Garlic helps to lower our bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol, called HDL. It also helps reduce toxins like lemon water does. So by reducing the toxins, we lessen the possibility of providing the required breeding grounds for acne.

Yogurt contains high concentrations of a good bacteria call Lactobacillus Acidophilus. This is commonly called a Probiotic. Probiotic microbes fight against infectious diseases by competing for the food and nutrients acne bacteria require to survive.
Closely related to this category are Prebiotics. Prebiotics help re-establish good bacteria in the stomach. Examples include honey, onions, artichokes and bananas.
Barley is high in both soluble and insoluble fibers. Soluble fiber helps the body metabolize fat, cholesterol, and carbohydrates. Insoluble fiber promotes healthy digestion; most people refer to eating insoluble fiber as “eating the roughage.” Barley also contains high levels of Vitamin E which helps kill acne quickly.
