in Lifestyle

Oily skin is a type of skin that is more prone to acne and blackheads. It makes your face look greasy and shiny. If you suffer from oily skin, you should make some changes to your diet to improve your complexion. You should avoid fatty meat, dairy products and salty snacks because these food items are hazardous to your skin. However, there are some foods that are beneficial for the skin.

Following are 4 foods that can help you get rid of oily skin.

1. Grapefruit

Grapefruit is one of the best fruits for oily skin. It is rich in fiber and water, so it fills you up without adding too many calories. It is also high in vitamin C that helps in flushing out the toxins from your body. In addition, this fruit contains skin-protecting antioxidants. You can eat grapefruit or drink its juice without sugar or syrup for best results.

2. Salmon

Along with grapefruit, salmon is another food that helps for oily skin. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids that have anti-inflammatory properties. These healthy fats can keep certain molecules in your body under control so that you can have healthy skin. If you are not a fan of salmon, you can eat nuts, avocados, flaxseed oil and tuna.

3. Water

It is always important for you to stay hydrated throughout your day. Drinking water not only hydrates your body but also makes your skin look healthy. Plus, water is an effective cleansing agent as it flushes out all toxins from your body. So you should drink at least eight glasses of water a day as well as avoid sweetened, carbonated beverages and sweet, flavored coffee beverages.

4. Cucumbers

Cucumbers are made of 95 per cent water that helps flush toxins out of your body. They also help rehydrate your body. Besides, cucumbers have anti-oxidant properties and have low energy density. You should eat cucumber raw for the best effect on your skin.
