Overall, foods that are anti-inflammatory are better for acne sufferers. These include colorful fruits and vegetables like green, leafy vegetables and berries. Also, I would recommend foods that are great for the gut microbiome, such as fermented foods like Kim Chee, Sauerkraut, and Kombucha. These can help decrease inflammation. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as wild-caught salmon, can also be anti-inflammatory.
