Does Sugar Contribute To Acne?
It has been greatly debated if what we eat contributes to having acne. One physician, Dr. Nicholas Perricone, MD, FACN, author of The Acne Prescription, thinks so. He has discovered that cellular inflammation is the cause of many diseases, including acne.
Your skin is affected by your blood sugar levels, which is determined by the food you eat. This means junk food and sugar must be avoided.
According to Dr. Perricone, increasing your water intake greatly improves the skin from acne.
As your partner in healthy skin, we encourage you to choose anti-inflammatory foods that have good fats, including fish, especially salmon. Go for fresh fruits and vegetables, which also have wonderful anti-inflammatory properties.
Taking care of your body from the inside out will make your acne treatments much more responsive and your life healthier!
