Seafood and acne?

Recommended Posts

Is there a correlation between the consumption of seafood (especially crustaceans) and an acne flare-up? I had a large bowl of New England Clam Chowder this past weekend, and woke up with three pimples the next day. Coincidence?

Omega 3 in seafood has anti-inflammatory function. It's supposed to help you skin. Maybe it was other stuff that come with seafood?

I think you should avoid shellfish like shrimp, crab, sleeve-fish, etc.

However, salmon and tunny are generally considered safe.

Well, since iodine in seafood is an acne aggavation agent, why not take cold pressed salmon oil instead? In that way, you can get enough omega-3 and meanwhile stay away from iodine.
