The wrong acne diet has been pinpointed as the number one cause of acne in adults. In the last 30 years, dermatologists insisted that acne was not caused by the foods that people eat. However, at the 67th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology, researchers presented data that contradicts this. Their research showed that a low-glycemic diet has contributed to “low or zero incidence of acne in populations with non-Westernized diets”. Here are some implications from that research.
Eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables together with lean meats, fish and seafood may help in improving skin conditions. In addition to this, staying away from other types of foods may be the secret to minimizing the occurrence of acne. There may, of course, be another answer which further research could reveal. However, it is a common observation that people whose diet does not normally include heavily processed foods, cereal grains, saturated and trans-fatty oils and refined sugars appear to be acne-free.
