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.

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!
@roxyrogan I have struggled with hormonal acne for over 1 year and had tried every face cream, scrub & peel you could find! When I started with Clearly Basics my skin started to clear within using the first bottle of ‘Clear Out’!
My skin is now on the road to recovery and I still use Clearly Basics ‘Clear Out, Protective Moisturizer and Lighten Up’ products every day! Highly recommend Clearly Basics to anyone who’s suffering from stubborn acne! 💛
@megandownes Amazing!! Never have I found a brand that is so gentle on my skin but works wonders. The lighten up is the best thing for redness, the difference in just one day on my pictures below. Can’t recommend enough, especially for hormonal acne. Thank you Clearly!
@xx.tonilumsden This is me 5 weeks into my skincare journey with @clearlybasics.
5 weeks ago, 5 months ago, and even 5 years ago, I had lost all hope for my skin and appearance. Now I have regained that hope and positivity because I know that I am using amazing skincare products by @clearlybasics that actually do work without being harsh on my skin.
Just because you feel like nothing is working doesn’t mean you should give up on hope.
@beas.bareskin Clearly Basics have been with me for about a week and I’m so happy I’ve been using their product!!!!!
My fave between these 3 is the “Lighten up” one because it has definitely helped with the redness! The redness on my cheeks are slowly dimming down and the texture of my skin is so soft and smooth.
You may not be able to tell cuz pictures don’t do it justice but if you were to have felt my skin before I used their products compared to now you can definitely feel the difference !!!
@aishx I have been using this product for the last 3 months and I swear by it!
My nasty pimps went away within days, my blemish marks were lightened and the size of my pores decreased drastically! In fact I feel that my skin brightened up a lot and my makeup looked smoother too!
