Pick up these foods at the grocery store next time you need a quick acne fix:

Berries: Not only are they filled with skin-clearing antioxidants, they’ll keep hunger pangs at bay and fill you up until your next meal.

Tea: Specifically green and peppermint tea, which helps with digestion, relives stress, and its great for the skin. Stress is a common acne aggravator, so sip on a warm cup of peppermint tea and feel your skin start to clear.

Grapes: Either eat them or rub them on your skin directly, grapes have chemicals and antioxidants that help treat inflammatory and irritated skin.

Avocado: This fabulous fruit, yes it’s a fruit, is an incredible source of vitamin E and C. This helps with skin’s vitality and glow, improves skin’s ability to retain moisture, and reduces skin inflammation.

Fish: For blemish-free skin, increase your intake of cold-water fish like salmon and mackerel. Don’t forget oysters too! All of these contain high levels of protein and acid that speed up your skin’s natural healing process and combat acne inflammation.

Most importantly:

Water: The best thing you can do to keep your skin clear is to stay hydrated! Clear skin starts from the inside, help your body flush out toxins and replenish your skin cells.
