Poor diet might cause impurities to your skin and make it dull-looking. We'll give you five tips on what to avoid and what to add to your diet to treat the skin from within. 1. Consuming too many dairy products is linked to acne. Dairy products contain growth hormones and saturated fats, which have negative impacts on your health. 2. Milk chocolate is known to increase a person's acne due to the increased inflammation; however, dark chocolate does the exact opposite. 3. Eating too much sugar raises a person's insulin levels, thus promoting the increased production of testosterone and inflammation, both of which cause acne. 4. When a person is deficient in omega-3 fats and zinc, they have fewer anti-inflammatory properties, and as a result, a person is more prone to acne. +1.
