Acne & Diet

Acne & Diet


How may your food impact acne breakouts and your skin?

It appears that the adage “You are what you eat” may actually be accurate. For instance, many of my patients can identify the perpetrator. Perhaps chocolate, the fast food they consumed in the college cafeteria, or the key lime pie they had to eat at Aunt Martha’s birthday celebration.

In the scientific community, there is growing evidence that suggests there may be a direct link between specific foods and breakouts. Research by the American Academy of Dermatology claims that acne is 81% genetic and 19% environmental, despite the fact that the vast majority of dermatologists do not share this opinion.

There are two main culprits in the diet:

  • The glucose index
  • Skimmed milk

Sugar, refined grains, starches, white rice, and corn are high-glycemic foods. These foods include a lot of sugar, which is quickly absorbed. They cause the pancreas to release a lot of pro-inflammatory insulin, which increases the skin’s sebum production.

Yeah, you read that right: whole milk is healthier than skim milk.

Monounsaturated fatty acids with anti-inflammatory effects can be found in whole milk. Whole milk also contains healthy, natural Vitamins A and D.

Insulin growth factors that may be involved in sebum production are decreased by milk fat.

In my practice, I suggest to my acne-prone patients to eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. They are instructed to consume Ascorbyl palmitate, zinc, and high-quality fatty acids (a more easily digestible form of Vitamin C). Also, I advise everyone to have yogurt made with whole milk every day. See additional advice on nutrition here.

Your physique and complexion can significantly improve with a nutritious diet and a focused natural skin care regimen.
