I think eating eggs everyday helps.I notice that when I eat eggs everyday my face doesn't breakout with new zits but as soon as I stop eating eggs , here come the zits.
I eat 3 eggs scrabbled and made into an omlet ,cooked on a nonstick pan without any butter,margarine or oils and place the halves on 2 top plain Italian pesce toast.

Acne is made worse by excess sugar and salt. You may not be aware of the amount of sugar/salt consumed in a day from foods like - cereal, soda, flavored sport drinks, desserts, certain tomato based foods, pretzels, crackers, fast food, etc. Too much sugar or salt will have an adverse effect on your body - internally and externally. I think it is important to incorporate more 'whole foods' into your diet - steamed/raw vegetables, fresh fruit, whole grain bread - especially if you have skin problems. Try to eat the super salty/sugary foods in moderation and eat more 'whole foods'. I think you are right, it does matter what you eat.

this isnt true for everyone........a girl in my class had better skin than a child does and during a 5 minute break she got a huge chocolate chip cookie and hot chocolate out of vending machines. some people (acne people too) can eat whatever and it doesnt change the skin on their face.
