How Good and Bad Diet Can Affect Your Acne Condition?

Acne no doubt leaves long-lasting scar on your self-confidence than on your skin.  We all know that healthy diet or nutrition keeps us healthy. And being healthy also includes the healthiness of the largest organ of out body, the SKIN. Acne is the most common skin problem affecting millions worldwide. So, let's explore -

How good and bad diet can affect your acne condition?

Though the relationship between diet and acne is still a matter of debate but the research results at various times proved that inclusion of certain type of diet either ameliorate or aggravate the acne condition. So, we can safely hope to get some best results to alienate our acne problem by improving our food habit. Today I am going to discuss about both types of food that are either believed to worsen the acne condition and those that helps preventing acne.

Lets us start with foods that are believed to cause Acne:

Junk foods cause Acne -is it so?



Our parents and well wishers often poke us to restrict eating chocolates, burgers as they trigger the condition that favors acne breakout.

Again many dermatologist and chocolate/ burger lovers utter that these are just myth as relation between diet and acne has been controversial.

But there is something more to it that you can't ignore. In a study published in Archives of Dermatology 2002, strong evidences has been found about certain kind of foods triggers acne breakout.

Chocolates, breads, burgers and other refined grains contained refined carbs hence are categorized as “A diet with a high glycemic index – These food are quickly broken down into sugar. To control the sugar level, our body causes the insulin to spike up which has a terrible effect on skin. The increased insulin level provokes increased sebum production leading to clogged pores and Acne breakout.

Relation between Dairy product or Milk and Acne




A 2005 article in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology found strong relation between milk or dairy product intake and acne.Though milk is essential for providing vitamins, minerals and calcium to keep our body healthy and fit but for those who are acne prone, milk does more harm than good to the body.

The milk or dairy product we consume contains abundance of IGF-1 hormone produced by cow to help their calf grow up big and strong. But the same hormone when consumed by acne prone human tends to make their acne grow big resulting in the ugly redness and swelling or inflammation of the acne. Moreover dairy products as mentioned in the above section raises insulin level that triggers excessive sebum production and clogged pores.


Now you may be thinking that foods are culprit for acne. Wait, there are many foods that supplies important minerals, vitamins etc that helps suppressing acne too.

So, let's check out the foods that helps curing acne?

There are certain things that we should add to our diet which helps improving the acne conditions. These are Vitamin - A, Vitamin B, Chromium, Zinc, Multi Vitamins, anti-oxidants etc.

  1. Carrot having beta-carotene (Vitamin A) helps strengthening, maintenance and repair of the tissues that contributes in the formation of skin and mucous membranes. Vitamin A helps reducing the excess sebum production that is one of the main cause of acne development.
  2. Brown Rice is considered as one of the rich source of Vitamin B that helps fighting skin stress which in turn helps regulating the hormone levels and acne breakouts.
  3. Garlic - You must include Garlic in your diet as it is full of allicin a naturally occurring chemical that fights bacteria and viruses in our body.
  4. Avocado is also very beneficial for skin. This fruit is rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Vitamin C helps locking moisture inside the skin Vitamin E increases it's vitality and makes it healthy.
  5. Nuts - Include Nuts in your diet as nuts are rich in selenium. Acne is somehow related to selenium deficiency.
I am sure that there are many more to add to the diet that helps controlling acne than what is mentioned in this list.
