Diet And Acne

Dermatological studies have shown that diet has a significant influence over acne condition. An improper diet could worsen one’s acne symptoms by increasing the imbalance in the body’s digestive system and immune system. People with acne should be careful of what to eat and what not to eat.

During the course of the acne treatment, we strongly recommend reducing your consumption of the following foods:

1. Foods high in iodine such as seafood and onions, etc.

2. Beef and dairy products such as milk, cheese and cream, etc.

3. High glycemic foods such as soft drinks and sweets, etc.

4. Greasy and spicy foods.

5. Alcohol.

But please do not make any drastic changes to your diet without first consulting your medical professional.
