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.

@thoughtsofhealing I’ve been using @clearlybasics for over 4 months but here’s a difference from June 3rd and August 2nd!
The ingredients in @clearlybasics Clear Out is AMAZING for hyperpigmentation.
A complete GAME CHANGER!
@startingtolovemyself ✨Not a pimple in sight!!!✨
It’s been about 3 weeks since I started using @clearlybasics Clear Out, Lighten Up and the Protective Moisturizer (the Complete Trio) and my skin has improved so much and I definitely think it’s from the Clear Out formula most of all!
It really is a miracle in a bottle! I’m excited to see how my skin changes even more in the next few weeks and months using them!
@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!
@skinwithak @clearlybasics helped maintain my skin after oral prescription and honestly their products have helped so many, I get many DM’s thanking me for recommending Clearly Basics and how it’s helped them.
If I knew about @clearlybasics prior to my course of oral prescription I would’ve definitely gone with using Clear Out for sure!
@deannaskin Over the past month and a half I’ve noticed a massive change to the appearance and texture of my skin since using @clearlybasics. Honestly the most effective products (vegan of course) I’ve used all year. Not only has the redness of my spots reduced, but I rarely get painful under-the-skin bumps or huge whiteheads anymore. My scars have also faded so quickly 👀
If your skin is similar to mine I’d 100% recommend that you implement these products into your skincare routine.
I’m only a few weeks in using these products but the results have been so positive🔮🧚🏽♀️
