Congesting Foods

Do you suffer from breakouts, blackheads and lumps & bumps? If you do, listen up!

Our skin naturally produces an oily substance called sebum. Sebum coats, moisturises and protects our skin.

The quality and flow of our sebum is influenced by lots of things, but food is one of the biggest factors.

Certain foods can cause our sebum production to be thick and sticky which means it can’t flow smoothly over our skin and ends up getting trapped - hello spots!

Here are some of our top foods to avoid when dealing with congestion.

Peanut butter, cashews, fried foods, chocolate, ice cream, protein bars/powders, milo, mince and sausages. 

It’s all the good stuff right? But we promise your skin will thank you for it!
