Acne is a painstakingly frustrating condition. The cure has eluded both sufferers and dermatologists for decades. However latest research on the role of oxidative stress and the antioxidant defense in acne brings new hope for sufferers.

Acne patients are under higher oxidative stress than people with healthy skin, and as a result their antioxidant levels are exhausted. Managing inflammation and correcting antioxidant depletion often brings much needed relief for acne patients.

Yes, it's an inflammatory condition. Chronic inflammation is also at the root od diabetes, heart disease and most of the other lifestyle caused self inflicted diseases that everyone around you suffers from today. Acne sufferers aren't under more oxidative stress. We just get the symptom of acne due to some genetic differences.

And fortunately, this is eay to improve with diet and lifestyle habits

which foods are best for treating oxidative stress? I.E. which foods have high antioxidant activity? Does grass fed beef have this? What about pasture raised eggs?
