When it comes down to having clear skin, food can play a big role. Unfortunately, while some people can eat a variety of unhealthy foods and still have clear skin, this same principle does not work for everyone. If you keep up a constant cycle of unhealthy eating, this will not only affect your body but your skin as well.
To put it simply – fast food (which contains highly processed ingredients and heavy carbohydrates) can make your skin more prone to break out. This could be seen through grains and sugar, dairy, or food containing Omega-6 Fats. There has been a direct correlation between these specific food groups and acne.
What Foods Cause Acne and Why?
Grains are usually seen in white rice and bread. When consuming grains, it actually causes an increase of glucose and insulin growth factor. This later causes a boost in oil production of the skin and it makes it more prone to breaking out. Additionally, sugar and fast food also cause blood sugar levels to increase which then spike insulin.
What Foods Help Your Skin?
Not all foods cause acne, in fact, there are a wide variety of healthy alternatives that can actually help your skin. These foods consist of fish, avocados, walnuts, sunflower seeds, sweet potatoes, and etc. These rich foods contain a wide variety of vitamins and can overall help with your skin’s health and complexion. For example, avocados are one of the most popular foods when healing your skin: they protect your skin from UV damage, and contain Vitamin C and E.
When comparing the differences between foods that cause acne versus foods that don’t, healthy foods are rich with nutrients while unhealthy foods are not.
