Because diet doesn't immediately show signs of affecting your acne the way factors such as makeup, dirt, or skincare products do, some argue that it doesn't really have an effect on the overall health of your skin. But this is completely FALSE! Everything you do, including how much water you drink, how much exercise you get, and the quality of what you eat has such a HUGE impact on your skin! It's important to stay hydrated by drinking water. My #1 recommendation is to completely stop drinking sodas and other sugary beverages, and switch them out for water or teas. Also if you consume greasy, fried, or processed food then the health of your skin is going to SHOW that. The best way to help your skin is make sure you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables (easier said than done) and assure that you are getting enough protein and antioxidants in your diet. Doing this over a period of time will show signs of positive change in your skin!
