Default Healthy Foods Which Cause Acne

You can cure your skin problem with natural acne cures. There is no need to resort to expensive over-the-counter products. Did you know that there are extremely healthy foods that make acne worse? Your health-conscious diet could be causing your breakouts.

These are the most dangerous foods because they are hiding behind the mask of healthiness. If you are prone to acne breakouts you need to stay away from these bad healthy foods.

Bananas
Bananas are high in sugar. That's why they are so delicious. They also are high potasium and some vitamins. They truly are a healthy food. But, because they are high in sugar they will cause an insulin surge which leads to inflammation and acne. If you are looking for natural acne cures, then stay away from bananas, or at least reduce your consumption.

Corn
Just like peas, corn is high in sugar and is therefore an enemy of clear skin, even though in many ways corn is healthy. One of these reasons corn is so delicious is because it is sweet. Corn is loaded with natural sugars which raise insulin levels thereby causing acne. Until you get through your acne stage, stay away from corn.

Dried Fruit
Most fruit, though not all, is safe if you eat just a piece at a time. Eating too much fruit will give you a blast of sugar which will set off the inflammation process leading to acne. Dried fruit is bad for acne because just about everything has been dried out of it except the sugar. Dried fruit is essentially a lump of sugar. Eating just a few pieces can give you a surge of sugar, thereby raising insulin and starting inflammation process. stay away from dried fruits.

Granola
Natural cures for acne, you may have noticed, involving reducing your consumption of sugar. Here's another food to avoid due to sugar. Most people looking for a health breakfast option turn to granola. I do. Too bad it's usually loaded with sugar. This truly healthy food will send your blood sugar to the skies, thereby releasing a blast of insulin and setting off the inflammation process leading to your new pimples in a day or two.

Cheese
Cheese is so delicious and healthy. Lots of calcium and vitamins makes this food a health food favorite. To bad it too sets off the inflammation process which causes us to break out with acne all over our faces.

Many think that using natural acne cures means not eating the foods you like. That is not completely true. First try reducing the intake of these kinds of foods until you see your skin clearing up. You may find that your body can handle a certain amount of these foods without causing breakouts.

I get the worst acne when I put gel in my hair and sweat. It clogs the shit out of my pores.

In as much as food influences hormone levels this is probably true.

I tend to believe the greater influences to hormone levels aren't likely to be food though..purely anecdotal however. For me I could eat like ish the whole month and only see acne when I'm stressed or when my cycle is playing games with my body.

The one exception being my romp with Biotin.. That shit broke me out with some salycilic acid resistant painful sore acne. When I had taken it previously I had taken it with literally tons of water and consistent multivitamin abd fish oils. That seemed to ease my skin..

Stress being the biggest cause of acne. Im not sure about the cheese/dairy thing. Some swear it makes you break out. I eat cheese and dairy everyday. Some times I go weeks without getting acne. Sometimes I cant close my eyes for 1 minute without seeing a new pimple. WTF?

You have been posted a really nice and interesting article here with us. I would like to say thanks to you that you share this post here with us. I think the the main cause of acne is your oily skin. And to avid it you should must make your skin free from oil and for this purpose you must avoid to eat fast food and other oily things.

Wow -- I didn't know this, especially about bananas. I am in the process of healing my skin, not necessary of acne, but from the scars that were left behind. I drink a lot of green smoothies and I do incorporate bananas in them ALL of the time. I haven't had any adverse effects so far, but it's something to think about and watch out for.

The biggest thing in any approach is moderation.

I haven't had any issues from bananas, and I include them because of their potassium content, their prebiotic qualities, and the texture they add to smoothies.

But, I keep their addition controlled and small. Don't really need to pile a whole ton in... though many people do.

I don't have a problem with acne and can eat those foods just fine without having problems. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

This is a very interesting read and a lot of information. I had no idea. I don't have skin problems so I never really thought of the foods that can have a negative effect on your skin. If you are somebody who does have problems with acne then you should make watch when you eat these foods and see if there is a trigger.
