A Goodbye to Adult Acne: Diet and adult acne

A Goodbye to Adult Acne: Diet and adult acne | Health and Wellness | Scoop.it

“Junk food doesn't just make you fat. For a long time doctors chalked up the whole diet-acne connection to urban legend. But now more and more research is pinning processed foods, sweets, and even dairy products as primary causes of acne – even in adults.

 

A review just published in the ' Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics ' examined reams of research on diet and acne spanning back to the early 20th century. Although a few popular studies from the sixties dispelled the junk food pimple link – making chocolate lovers cheer – newer trials put certain foods back in the hot seat.

 

According to lead researcher Jennifer Burris, a dietitian at New York University, the major acne culprits are candy, chips, soda, and other highly processed foods that rank high on the glycemic index. These items require little effort for your body to digest, so they cause your blood sugar to spike super quickly. Burris says this sets off a domino effect, as your system cranks out extra insulin to get the glucose in check, as well as a particular hormone that tells your skin to produce oil. The excess oil plugs up your pores and gives pimple-causing bacteria lots to feed on.”
