5. Avoid meats high in animal fat, salami, pepperoni, meatballs

6. Moderate use of sweets in your diet, chocolate bars, candies, different drinks high in sugars as a teenager and lower use of them as you grow up. Honey is an excellent replacement for sugars

It is worth remembering nuts including pistachio, almonds, peanut, cashews, walnut are not only great for your skin but they help stabilize your blood sugar level
