6. Eat lots of fresh foods and stay hydrated. 

While the research now proves the link between certain foods and breakouts, Chinese medicine practitioners have known the power of diet on skin health for centuries. To keep your skin healthy and clear of blemishes, enjoy lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. 

Vegetables that are high in fiber help to clear excess waste from the digestive tract. This prevents the buildup of toxins that can lead to acne. Fresh fruits and vegetables also contain nourishing and hydrating water, which reduces inflammation, irritation, and cleans the pores from within.
