My Diet / My Acne (can you help?)

Recommended Posts

I'm just wondering if anything in my current diet could potentially be contributing to recent acne flair ups on my face/neck?

I wanted to post a list of things I generally eat in a week and see if anyone spots anything which might be a red light, that maybe I'm not aware of. I know everyone's skin / body is different but perhaps there's some things I should be avoiding?

So, in a standard week I can consume;

Sweet Potatoes
Red pepper  
Mixed veg (frozen)  
Broccoli (frozen)  
Peas (frozen)
Black olives
Brown Rice
Hemp Milk
Turkey breast pieces
Turkey mince
Chicken breast pieces  
Turkey steaks  

Baked Beans

Bread (GF)
Porridge oats (GF)  
Oat cakes (GF)  
Cereal (GF)

That looks like a really good list of foods to me! Do you ever cook your meats in oils? If so, which ones? You may want to consider using oils that contain the "better-for-you" fats, and less saturated fat. E.g. olive, canola, corn, peanut, safflower, sunflower, or soybean.
