Acne and the importance of diet 

I see a lot of patients with acne in my practice. I must say we have a high rate of success in clearing acne. I believe it’s mostly due to my interest in acne and my individualized approach. I also try to spend a good deal of time with these patients discussing every aspect of their treatment. In addition, we discuss the importance of diet. There was a study sent to me from Italy that looks at over 200 young people with acne, which I found very interesting. Those who consumed the lowest quantity of fruits, vegetables and fish were more prone to getting acne. This further confirms what I’ve been saying all along.
