Diet & Acne, The Missing Link

A good debunking and food for thought

 

There's just not enough information out there on how certain food can impact our skin health. We've all had to learn it the hard way, multiple breakouts after too many slices of greasy pizza? Here's everything we know and why we think you might want to cut down on the dairy and bread if you're struggling with acne.

1. The only foods that have been conclusively linked to acne are high-glycemic index carbohydrates (HGC) (ex. pasta, refined sugars, white bread) and dairy products. 

2. Reducing your HGCs can actually lead to a significant reduction of acne. Maybe even by half! Same for milk.

3. However, it doesn't really mean dairy and HGC are a cause of our acne. What it really does it is exacerbate acne in some cases. The main cause for your acne could be hormonal or stress-related.

4. If you're suffering from a bad case of acne, yes cutting on HGC, sugar and even dairy will help improve your skin. Worth it? We think so!
