I used to have a red face with lots of pimples. I didn't understand why, as I ate a really healthy diet, was regular, was extremely healthy in other ways besides my skin. Anyways, I remembered that when I was in college, I had great skin and I also took evening primrose oil supplements. I didn't want to take them again, so I tried adding more olive oil to my food. I listened to my body and it usually told me to consume 1 or more tablespoons of olive oil. I also ate spinach. After doing this for a while, I notice that my skin has brightened and the pimples have decreased or gotten smaller. Most of the redness is gone.Acne was the cause of the inflammation.

This was interesting as I was already an avid consumer of almonds and pistachios. But apparently, the kind of essential fatty acids you eat is important. Those nuts have Omega-9's, but olive oil has Omega-6's. Spinach has Omega-3's. Your body can generate Omega-9's from other EFA's, but you need to consume the 6's and 3's.

Here are some links for reference: n_fat.php

The cause of acne is oil getting trapped in your follicles, which traps bacteria into your pores, which results in acne.
