Suggested Lifestyle Changes
- Consume low glycaemic index foods such as whole grain rice, fresh fruits (e.g. apple, orange) and vegetables (e.g. carrots, lettuce) as they may reduce the risk of developing acne.
- Avoid overconsumption of high fat or oily and greasy food, especially fast food (deep-fried food) or junk food, as this may trigger the inflammatory factors in your body and make existing acne worsen.
- Minimise the consumption of sugary beverages, as taking too many sugary beverages will increase the chance of getting acne.
- Consume more dietary fibres such as carrots, lettuce, tomatoes and dark leafy (e.g. spinach and kale) vegetables. High intake of dietary fibres has shown to improve skin condition.
- Consuming more omega-3 rich food such as fishes (e.g. salmon, mackerel), nuts and seeds (e.g. sunflower seed, flaxseed, walnuts) will reduce your chances of developing acne.
