What Foods Cause Acne?

Question: What foods cause acne?
No doubt you have probably heard the myth that food causes acne. In fact, there are studies to support the fact that food doesn’t cause acne. However, it is common knowledge that you are what you eat or drink. In other words, if you eat a diet rich in processed, unhealthy food, your skin probably won’t look its best. Instead, drink plenty of water and try to eat a well-balanced diet rich in real food.

In addition, new studies suggest that acne may be triggered by a rise in insulin level. So if you are eating a diet loaded with sugar, your body is forced to produce the hormone insulin to help absorb the sugar. This throws your body’s hormone levels off, which may cause acne.

Others believe that dairy and foods rich in fatty acids may also cause acne, but the studies are not definitive. Some acne suffers have found relief by reducing the amount of dairy they consume or by increasing the amount of omega fatty acids they eat does help their skin. If you are concerned about food sensitivities causing your acne the best course of action is to talk to your doctor.
