Acne Safe Super Greens Alternatives

by The Emme Diane Team on January 31, 2022

Many people turn to "super greens" (such as spirulina, chlorella, blue green algae, seaweed, kelp) thinking that it will help their skin. Unfortunately, for those of us who are acne prone, this couldn't be further from the truth.

Super greens are all very high in dietary iodine, which means they are also huge acne triggers. Many clients have come to me telling me that they are consuming super greens for their skin, but they are still getting breakouts. This is because super greens will not clear acne, but will trigger it instead.

Eliminate the following acne triggering super greens from your diet. Make sure to check the ingredients of any protein powders, supplements, or vitamins you are taking as well*

Eliminate:
  • Spirulina
  • Chlorella
  • Algae
  • Seaweed
  • Kelp
  • all sea-based greens
Replace with: 
  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Collard greens
  • Broccoli
  • Asparagus
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Green beans
  • any green or leafy vegetable that is not sea based

Many like to add a green powder to their smoothie or to make a green drink. Unfortunately, most of the green powders do contain the acne triggering super greens. However, there is a green powder that is ACNE SAFE that I highly recommend which is Amazing Grass Amazing Trio!

*Always consult your doctor before beginning or ending any supplement or vitamin
