Foods That Help Get Rid of Acne

3. Oysters


Oysters are naturally enriched in zinc, which is a mineral that has been found to be very effective in controlling acne in both males and females. You can take in the form of a supplement, but it’s best to take zinc from dietary sources as zinc supplements in large doses that exceed 100 mg per day may cause potential side effects like upset stomach.

Other foods rich in zinc are roast beef (if it’s organic even better), wheat germ flakes and wheat germ oil, dehydrated watermelon seeds, and roasted pumpkin seeds.
