Clean Eating for Clearer Skin
You can make a huge difference in your skin health by eating a clean food diet. 

Acne is triggered by hormones, but your diet and what you eat can influence those hormones. 

Dairy and sugar are the biggest culprits for poor skin health.

Other food sensitivities, such as gluten, can also trigger inflammation and cause outbreaks. You may want to try an elimination diet in order to discover which foods are causing the issue. Use a naturopath or a nutritionist to help guide you through the stages of elimination. 

Acne can also be tied to emotions, such as anger, sadness and depression.

Listen in as Makato Trotter, ND, shares the worst foods for acne and other skin issues, as well as which foods can make a positive impact on your skin.
