Consuming a lot of processed sugars can lead to increased insulin, resulting in increased oil production and worsening the condition of acne.

Food causes acne that you should beware of

In addition to the various habits above, the cause of acne can also be from the foods you consume daily.

Because, every meal you consume will certainly affect your health. Similarly for skin health.
Here are some of the acne-causing foods you should know:

1. Sweet Food

According to studies, one food cause food is high sugar foods such as white bread, cake, chocolate.

This is due to the high glucose levels in the body that increases the insulin hormone.

The hormone insulin is a hormone that functions in the processing of glucose in our body.

Elevated levels of insulin hormone in the blood can trigger an increase in the number of cells of the oil glands and sweat glands on the face.

This is what will eventually trigger the onset of acne.

In addition, high levels of glucose can trigger the appearance of acne, because it increases the production of oil that is more viscous.

This can cause blockages in the facial pores that can ultimately trigger an inflammatory process.

According to the results of a study, diets with foods that have low glycemic loads can improve the symptoms of inflamed acne.

This glycemic burden differs from the glycemic index.

To make sure your diet stays healthy and keeps you from acne, there are a few tips to follow:

You have to eat foods with a low glycemic index (under 55) such as wheat bread, red rice, or corn chips without salt.

You can combine food with a high glycemic index you like, with low glycemic index food for a balanced diet.

You have to divide your large feeding portion into several small feeding portions. You can also eat more often, but with smaller portions.

Multiply the vegetables and fruits.

2. Oily Food

Other foods cause acne is oily food. Yes, oily foods like fries, chips, and fried food, can make the oil glands in the skin produce more oil.

Well, this increase in oil intake in addition to making your skin oily also triggers the growth of acne.

Fatty acids in oily foods can also increase inflammation, making the acne that is already in the face is getting worse.

However, you should not get rid of these acne-causing foods.

You just have to restrict eating the cause of the acne and wash your face regularly.

3. Milk

The relationship between acne and milk is unclear.

However, some studies have shown that milk and dairy products such as cheese and butter can trigger acne, or make your acne worse.

Processed milk is more likely to trigger an increase in the hormone insulin and IGF-1 as the trigger of acne.

This is due to the consumption of processed milk such as yogurt, ice cream, milk with flavors, and low-fat milk has more sugar so that it can increase the risk of increasing insulin hormones when consumed concurrently with sweet food Other.

The high levels of insulin and IGF-1 in the blood due to the consumption pattern will trigger a faster sebum growth reaction to develop into acne.

In addition, the amount of protein from milk can also trigger the complexity of skin problems through the inflammation due to increased androgen hormones.

However, both of these things are more likely to occur with other causal factors such as pubertal age, skin condition, bacterial infection of the environment, and overall dietary quality.

Milk processed consumption may not be the main cause if you have a more risky type of oily skin for acne.

To prevent acne, you can try to stop consuming milk and dairy products for some time, then see the effect on the skin.

If indeed this way is suitable for your skin, please go ahead.

However, milk and dairy products contain a lot of nutrients that are good for the body like vitamin D and calcium.

So be careful when you choose not to use milk and dairy products.

As a substitute, perform the following steps:

Try the milk in small quantities and check your acne condition.

If acne does not get worse, you do not have to remove dairy products from your diet.

Try different types of dairy products. Some people feel better when using yogurt.

Use other sources of calcium, such as broccoli, spinach, and other green vegetables.
