It goes without saying that nutrition and diet affect overall health, but does it have a direct effect on acne?
Does your diet have an impact on acne?
A diet that consists of the right food can certainly help keep your skin healthy, so does that mean eating certain kinds of food can trigger breakouts?
At some point, someone may have suggested to you that certain foods like chocolate or nuts can cause pimples. But while a proper diet can certainly help keep your skin healthy, there is no sufficient evidence to conclude that you can get pimples just by eating certain foods. After all, there are many factors that can contribute to acne such as hormones and lifestyle, so it’s nearly impossible to single out foods that do cause acne.
However, there is a connection between food and your breakouts: foods with a high-glycemic index such as white bread and pasta can trigger a spike in your blood sugar, which may trigger acne.
Saturated fats and sugary foods have also been linked to breakouts. High consumption of fatty or sugary foods can cause the sebum in your pores to become less fluid. This causes it to form a plug that clogs the pore, eventually causing a blemish.
Food for healthy skin
Switching to a healthy diet may not automatically get rid of acne overnight but it’s also good to keep skin healthy from the inside out. Make sure you get plenty of fruits and vegetables and drink 6-8 glasses of water daily. If you are already acne-prone, you may want to avoid high GI foods such as white bread, cookies, and sugary desserts.
Take Lactezin for acne
Along with a healthy lifestyle, taking oral acne medication such as Lactezin may also help with pimples. Lactezin contains a formulation of natural ingredients such as Lactoferrin, Vitamin E and Zinc that may help treat pimples and may also keep them from recurring. Learn more about how Lactezin works.
