The Best Snacks for People with Acne

Summer has a certain type of informality to it — lazy days, swimming pools, vacations, and more flexible schedules, delicious snacks. However, all the added fun and adventure can leave you feeling a bit hungry if you forget to plan ahead. Acne-prone skin types need to be especially aware of this! Maintaining your clear complexion is a balancing act on an average day but during the summer months, it can be even more challenging. Eating acne-safe snacks is crucial during hotter months.

Snacks are to summer like soup is to winter.

Do you want clear skin?

We need snacks to keep us going through all those long, hot summer days. So we thought it would be beneficial to share some of our favorite snack ideas that will keep you refreshed AND acne-free all summer long.

Whether you’re hanging out on the beach, hitting the trails, catching a ballgame, or kicking it in your own backyard, you’re going to need these acne-safe snacks to hit the spot this summer.

Foods That Cause Acne

One interesting observation is that acne is predominantly an issue in societies that follow a western diet aka the diet packed full of things that aren’t good for our bodies (high refined sugar, high refined grain products), whereas societies that follow a hunter-and-gatherer type of diet (meat, vegetables, whole grains, no refined or packaged food) don’t have a problem with pimples.

Remember, you can’t go wrong with incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your diet. One of the puzzle pieces to minimizing acne is consuming foods that naturally reduce inflammation, boost collagen formation, and block environmental toxins.

But sometimes we crave food that isn’t just fruits or veggies.

We can sympathize with you there. With acne-aggravating foods everywhere we turn we like to have a few go-to snacks to satisfy cravings without sacrificing the integrity of our skin. Whether you want something sweet, salty, creamy, or crunchy – we have it covered!

When choosing processed snacks, choose snacks fried with olive oil instead of soybean or canola oils. Soy is found in lots of processed food, so do your best to avoid it.

Siete Brand Products

The number one hands-down summer snack is the grain-free tortilla chips from Siete. They come in a few different selections like dairy-free nacho, dip chips, cinnamon strips/churro style, sea salt, lime… you name it, they have what you’re looking for! Not only are they scrumptious, but they also won’t wreak havoc on your face if you indulge a little!

There are also vegan chip dips available from this brand as well. The Siete Spicy Blanco Cashew Queso Dip is a favorite that everyone will enjoy.

Siete chips and dip are a sure way to satisfy your craving without causing a stage 5 outbreak across your face or body.

RXBAR Acne Safe Snacks

Rxbar was started by two guys in Chicago who were seeking a whole food protein bar that they felt good about eating and that made them feel great after eating it. The result? The bars are made with a simple blend of dates, nuts, and egg whites in a variety of flavors.

One thing is for sure, these clean bars with their super simple packaging sure are handy to have in the bottom of your purse or in your glove box for whenever hunger strikes!

Green Girl Bakeshop – Vanilla Bean (plant-based organic gelato)

Nostalgic healthy desserts that are free from most common allergens. This plant-based gelato is made with no more than four ingredients, meaning no unnatural stabilizers and nothing artificial. All of their baked goods are made fresh without hydrogenated oils, trans fats, or any preservatives.

Yummy for your tummy & safe for your acne-prone skin! Win-Win!

SO Delicious Dairy-Free Oat milk Ice Cream (S’mores Flavor)

This dairy-free ice cream makes you want to pull up a log & start roasting away. Graham cracker-flavored oat milk frozen dessert with chocolate bits and marshmallow-flavored swirls of coco whip topping. It’s like sitting in a circle and singing a song of yum.

There are several flavor options of this ice cream. Another favorite of ours is the Oatmeal Cookie.

Hail Merry Acne Safe Cups and Tarts

The name Hail Merry is meant to honor and show reverence for Mother Nature. This company believes in consuming foods as close to their natural state as possible without over-processing or adding preservatives, fillers, and synthetic dyes.

Satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising your complexion.

A favorite of ours is the tart zing of their creamy Meyer Lemon ganache in an almond cookie crust that will make your mouth say “pucker up!”

The Final Say

Not only is it important to choose healthy acne-safe snacks but it’s imperative to make sure you’re drinking enough water every day too! Especially during the summer months. Struggling to drink water because it literally tastes like nothing? Fancy it up with some cucumber, mint, or sliced fruit!

Your health determines what kind of life you lead and the way you feel about yourself. You are worthy of feeling and looking your best. Are you ready to go all in for clear skin? Schedule your initial consultation and treatment today, so we can get you on the road to clear skin!
