What you put into your body affects the condition of your skin. So if you are wondering how to get rid of your pimples, the answer may lie in your diet. Excess of sugar, salt and dairy in the form of chocolates and junk food can be detrimental to your skin. Such foods can make your skin greasy and prone to acne. Hence, cut back on these foods and supplement your diet with more fruits and vegetables instead.
