Skin guru Sonya Dakur recommends getting more zinc (found in meats, beans, and milk), Vitamin C (found in citrus fruit) and flaxseed oil (found in health food stores, and can be drizzled over your salad). Zinc and vitamin C are protective and strengthen the skin. The flaxseed oil will thin the blood in your skin a bit so your pores are less likely to clog. The three work together to help your skin heal more quickly, so that when you get acne it won’t take as long for the red spots to fade away. She also recommends getting these in the food form over the pill form and her best celebrity skin secret is drink plenty of water to keep skin from looking dry and tired.

Celebrity dermatologist Kathy Fields, M.D. recommends exfoliating the skin to keep pores unclogged and acne from forming. Make sure the beads in the exfoliation product are spherical and not jagged and rough (steer clear of apricot scrubs which contain beads that are too irritating to the skin, they actually result in microscopic tears in the skin). A good exfoliating product to try is Proactiv Solution Renewing Cleanser.
