You'll be glad you did.:)

Vegetable and Salad Oils, Margarines and Shortening
Tuesday, October 16th, 2012
We use oils in almost all of our cooked foods and it’s an ingredient in virtually every processed food on your shelves. It’s a common feature in our homes, but even vegetable oil is bad for you and margarines and shortening are even worse.
The downfall of these common ingredients is their high levels of Omega-6 fat, which is a common indicator of a lack of Omega-3 fat. This imbalance of proper fat leads to a highly increased inflammation level, which as we’ve covered before, leads to heart disease, cancer and possibly even autoimmune diseases.
It’s in your best interest to avoid these cooking oils and increase your intake of omega-3 from foods such as fatty fish.

Refined sugars are one of the biggest poisons for your skin and health. While sweets are both tempting and tasty, they adversely affect your insulin metabolism, draw hormonal changes, and are devoid of zinc. This combination causes extreme inflammation along with the rest of the problems that are attributed to refined sugars and sugary foods.
Basically, refined sugars are as bad as, if not worse than refined grains. Cutting out foods with refined sugars will help your skin health significantly along with a plethora of other benefits.
Satisfying your sweet tooth with naturally-occurring sugars such as apples and fruit will aid your health and skin and leave you feeling better all around.

I’ve got good news. Moderate and occasional alcohol consumption over time can actually help your acne and skin health long term by improving your insulin metabolism. However, if you’re trying to improve your acne in the short term by altering your diet (which you should be doing if you want to really kick it) we recommend cutting it out of your diet for the beginning and slowly working it back in after your acne has improved. It will be a short-term hit, but a long term gain.
