The link between food and acne is the subject of a great deal of debate. Although food isn’t thought to cause acne, your diet can increase inflammation, which can boost your acne risk. Your dermatologist can help you decide if dietary changes could improve your acne. This video also explores the controversy.
If you are interested in seeing if your diet can improve your skin, focus on eating foods that decrease inflammation. Cutting sugar and processed foods from your diet is a big step in lowering your inflammation rates.
