In her article, Osha Key, a certified nutritionist writing for MindBodyGreen, shares her personal rules to clear her skin of acnes:
- Remove caffeine
- Drink water
- Use fewer skincare products and switch to organic ones
- Get good sleep
- Drink vegetable juices
- Consume lots of nutrients
- Avoid polyunsaturated fats
- Eat less sugar and fats
- Eliminate dairy
While I agree with most of Osha’s rules, especially healthy eating and using fewer skincare products, I wouldn’t go to the extremes of completely eliminating coffee from one’s diet. Moderate coffee consumption shouldn’t negatively affect your skin. Also, one should bear in mind that consuming coffee may have a number of positive results on your health, including increasing antioxidants in your body, cutting the risk of type 2 diabetes, improving exercise performance, etc. as suggested by recent scientific evidence.
In any case, the article is a good read offering simple and common-sense tips for improving your skin and overall health. I would suggest our readers to spare three-four minutes of their time to read this article.
