Hi Thuan32.   There is no clear link between acne and the food you ingest.  There are some recent research showing a possible remote link between food allergies and acne, and sugar and acne.  There are also current (though not substantiated) reasearch showing a possible causal link between hormonally enhanced meats and acne. Peyton is right, good hydration (H2O) and foods high in vitamins and minerals can improve your skins appearance although they may not stop or clear the acne and good facewashing with a mild, non perfumed soap is important.  Acne is caused by many different factors working synergisticly. It is less about what you eat and what clogs your pores and more about what goes on inside your body. Genetics, believe it or not, has the biggest role.  Hormones is the second biggest factor.  I would suggest you talk with your healthcare provider.  Acne is successfully treated with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications as well as other medications if there is reoccurance.  Good luck :-)
