Antibacterial Foods for Acne

Eating powerful antibacterial foods can help treat acne from the inside!

Acne is caused by bacteria, such as Propionibacterium acnes. Antibacterial foods fight off this bacteria from within the body, which prevents acne from popping out your skin!

1. Probiotic Food

Eat probiotic yogurt or even better, take probiotic supplement everyday to kill off acne causing germs in your body. Probiotic means  with live cultures or good bacteria in it.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is another probiotic food! Look for raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar because this is the type that is useful against acne. It has cleansing and antibacterial properties that rid the body of harmful bacteria and pathogens.

3. Garlic

Garlic is one of the top antibiotic foods on earth. When consumed internally, it helps fight off all kinds of pathogens and disease-causing germs from colds to acne.  Garlic can also be chopped into tiny pieces and quickly swallowed with water. Consume about 2 garlic cloves in a day, not more.

4. Raw Honey

Raw honey is another strong antibacterial food for acne. It is also rich in antioxidants and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce acne inflammation. You can even make garlic-infused honey and take a tsp every day to fight off acne. Make it by chopping up 10 garlic cloves and infusing it in ½ cup of raw honey. Store this mixture in a cool dry place and consume after letting it sit for 3-5 days.

5. Turmeric

Turmeric is a powerful pain and inflammation fighting food. Its main ingredient is curcumin.  Add turmeric powder to your food like curries (it has a mild taste). Whenever you’re consuming turmeric, also add a pinch or two of ground black pepper. Black pepper makes turmeric so many more times bioavailable to the body!

6. Ginger

Ginger is a warm spice that we love consuming in foods such as ginger snaps, ginger beer and even ginger tea. It has been shown to have strong anti-inflammatory properties that reduce acne inflammation. What’s more is that it is an antibacterial food as well! The compound gingerol in ginger is the one that’s been shown to help fight infections.

7. Lemon

Lemon not only alkalizes the body but also helps fight off bacteria. This is because it contains two compounds called coumarin and tetrazine, which help defeat several infectious pathogens.

8. Coconut Oil

Yes, coconut oil is also an antibacterial food! It contains a number of essential fatty acids such as lauric acid that’s what gives coconut oil it’s bacteria-fighting effects. Use coconut oil as a cooking oil instead of sunflower oil to improve your chances of fighting acne naturally.

9. Pineapple

The sweet tropical fruit pineapple is also another amazing antibacterial food for acne! It’s main component bromelain has antimicrobial properties that kills germs. Pineapples are also rich in fiber which clears the body of toxins that if accumulated in the body, lead to pus-filled acne.

10. Fermented Foods

 Fermented foods like kefir, sauerkraut and kimchi among others, are all antibacterial and antimicrobial foods. They are filled with good bacteria (probiotics) that eat up the bad bacteria that cause acne. Incorporate these foods into your diet and see dramatic changes on your acne prone skin!
And on top of these amazing foods use Acne treatment products which are clean from chemicals that only irritate the skin. Pure Acne Treatment Kit is exactly it! with a cleanser, a day cream and a spots gel!

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life! All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement. In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs. I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
