The body is a complex system and it is difficult to isolate specific food groups as a trigger for acne. However, there is a growing body of evidence that certain foods will lead to increased oil production. Consider reducing these foods your diet to see if the make a difference. Also consider adding spearmint tea if you have hormonal acne:
Refined Carbs and Sugars
Foods that are high in the Glycemic Index (GI) triggers insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF-2) hormones in your body which stimulate oil production. Popular culprits are soda, potato chips, refined breads oatmeal and potatoes.
Milk based products increase mTORC1 proteins in your body which stimulates oil production. Consider replacing dairy with soy products.
If you haven’t already, include nuts like almonds or walnuts in your diet as they are a good source of zinc. If you have a nut allergy, Take 30 mg of zinc gluconate per day. Studies have shown that it works almost as well as oral antibiotics for acne.
If you have hormonal acne, drinking spearmint tea may help to reduce testosterone levels, and hence reduce sebum production in your oil glands.

@amynuramira I have been struggling with acne for 10 years. This is by far the best product. I started out with brown pigmentation (acne marks) and a lot of tiny bumps of acne on my forehead, cheek and nose (kind of like sand paper). As soon as I started the Clear Out and Lighten Up, my acne bumps got smaller and smaller. My brown pigmentation began turning lighter (reddish pinkish).
Initially, when I started using it, I didn’t really get a ‘purge’ it was just a small amount of break outs which went away in a few weeks. Now my hormonal break outs are not as terrible as before, they still appear but barely noticeable. My skin is acne-free, pigmentation are still there but they’ve improved tremendously!
@gemskin__ A little progress goes a long way! 🙌🏻 In the first picture I think my skin was purging from the first week of using @clearlybasics ‘Clear Out’. I believe I actually cried either before or after I took this photo, my skin was super painful and I felt so ugly and self conscious!
The second picture is 5 weeks after using Clear Out, just scarring (being helped by using Lighten Up) and no actives!
I’m so happy with the results so far using these products and they have been the only thing that has helped my skin!
@itsangels_makeup I’ve started using The Power Duo + Protective moisturizer nearly 6 months ago after many positives reviews that I’ve read.
The first thing that I’ve experience has been the “purge” coming with clear out and it can last a loooong time. So this review is for people like me who experienced the purge for more that a month or two: keep going.
Because when I was about to quit I’ve seen a huuuuge difference with my skin. My skin is so much smoother than it was before Clearly Basics. So keep going, use Clearly Basics and stay positive!
@clearupchels Guys after using clear out from @clearlybasics for over a month everyday I do truly believe it’s made a MASSIVE difference. My face is smoother, tone is more even and I do think the stubborn spots are going quicker.
I payed for this myself and have not been asked to do this post, I just think If it’ll help someone else why would I not shout about it!
@hayleyfoster I’ve been using clearly range for almost 6 months now and it really has changed my life! I’ve suffered acne my whole life and although it may not be as bad as others its bad to me and has affected my life everyday. Initially my skin got better with the power duo then I seemed to go through a blip. I contacted Clearly and after sending some pics they gave me some advice and created me a more concentrated formula which worked amazingly and I can now dermaroll to help get rid of the scaring and finally feel I can leave the house without makeup!
I was skeptical to start with as I’d tried everything, been on prescription oral medication at a young age and it just came back within a year. I’ve tried all creams from GP and over counter stuff but none have worked until now with the help of clearly. If you are wonder whether to try it just give it a go! You have nothing to lose! I’m so glad I found Clearly Basics!
