has anyone gotten rid of clogged pores / blackheads through diet in Diet & holistic health Posted November 4, 2009 I started to eat broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, garlic and onion every day at the same time I started to eat coconut oil. My blackheads cleared up and people started to comment that my skin was glowing. I gained some weight after a while so now I only eat 3 tablespoons a day. My skin still looks great. I hope you try the coconut oil for at least a month! You can also apply it on the skin. Sometimes I apply it before I go to bed and my skin looks amazing the next day!
