I have never heard of any specific food reducing acne, but I know a healthy diet of vegetables and lean meats, as well as drinking LOTS of water is supposed to help your skin.

    Drink ALOT of water! Also, be healthy. Eat lots of green veggies because what you eat reflects in the way you look.

    Garlic is really good for your skin. Drink a lot of water too, cuz it helps flush out the toxins. Dark chocolate actually has a lot of antioxidants in it too. As far as acne goes in general, i’ve had it for years too, mine hasn’t gone away. I’ve found that the kits do help a lot, like acnefree, clean and clear advantage. avon just came out with a new one called clearskin professional, and it works good. I kno this sounds stupid but you would be surprised how many people don’t do it. Just by do a skin care regimen twice a day would and should help. make sure that if you wear makeup you get the ones that don’t clog pores. I like covergirls clean makeup oil control, it’s for people with oily skin. and since acne is caused by bacteria, use a makeup sponge to apply makeup because your fingers have bacteria on them, and it could make your acne worse. I like oil control sheets as well. they don’t take off ur makeup or anything like that, just the excess oil that’s on your skin.

    Good luck and I hope I helped!
