First one needs to understand the difference between blemishes and acne. Acne is pimples caused due to hormonal changes, unhealthy eating habits, erratic lifestyle etc. Blemishes on the other hand are discolored marks or patches which happen after the acne settles down.


Eating the right food and taking the adequate amounts of the right vitamins will let your face breathe easy and nourish it from within to beat those spots and scars. It is important to consume Omega-3 fatty acid for dry and inflamed skin that suffers from frequent appearance of white heads and black heads.


Protein from foodstuffs such as milk, eggs, soya and meat are excellent for healthy skin. Vitamin A prevents dry skin and acne that can be acquired from foods like carrot, papaya and other yellow and orange fruits and vegetables.


Did you know that zinc deficiency leads to acne? Zinc acts by controlling the production of oil in the skin, and may also help control some of the hormones that create the acne.  Rich sources of zinc are milk, yeast, beans, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, chicken and salmon. High anti-oxidant rich diet is a must like Vitamin E food items. Zinc controls the production of oil in the skin and controls some of the hormones that create acne.


There are certain factors one must keep in mind when it comes to blemish formation.   Lifestyle changes needs to be made if you want blemish free skin. The most important cause of skin blemishes includes hereditary, hormone fluctuations, dietary habits and environmental factors. Excessive oil production is one of the main causes of acne. Control this oil secretion by using a mild antibacterial cleanser on the face twice a day and by shampooing the hair regularly so that no oil or dirty reaches the face.
