As we age, certain changes in our skin appears, however much of them links with the intake of our food on daily basis.

Acne is one of the main problems mostly teenagers face, in this situation there are certain foods that health experts advise to be avoided.

According to dermatologists, there are certain foods that you may want to avoid when experiencing an acne breakout or are prone to acne, as they can exacerbate the issue in certain people.

High glycemic index foods, better known as refined carbohydrates and sugars are on the top of the list.

High glycemic index foods are foods that release glucose rapidly. Although high glycemic foods include white breads and cereals, it also applies to otherwise healthier foods such as watermelon.

Dermatologists suggests limiting high glycemic index foods from your diet if you are experiencing a breakout, as these foods may “promote acne breakouts in predisposed individuals”.

“The high sugar load activates messengers in the bloodstream that in turn promote skin inflammation”

In addition to high-sugar foods, dairy can also have a negative impact on acne breakouts.

“Cow’s milk, particularly skim milk, has been associated with acne breakouts.”

“It is thought to be due to a high-sugar content within the milk and perhaps due to circulating hormones from the lactating cow. “

As for what to do if you are experiencing a breakout, dermatologists recommend washing your face twice daily to rid of pore-clogging oils and other acne-causing irritants.
