"How much does diet play a part in acne?"
  • Print

Diet plays just a small role when dealing with Acne. While most of acne is determined by your oil secretions, some foods don’t help to alleviate the condition. For example, greasy foods cannot create acne, but they might contribute to some congestion around the mouth (especially the corners of the mouth). Some foods containing dairy may cause people to experience slight breakouts, especially if consumed in high amounts. Some individuals claim that when they eat foods high in iodine (i.e. sushi) they experience breakouts. It is difficult to make generalizations as each person’s physiology reacts differently. You’ll mostly want to remember to drink plenty of water, and make sure to wipe your face if you plan to eat bbq wings otherwise you might get that mystery pimple!
