Junk Food Causes Acne. Fact or Fiction?

So far, no studies have shown a direct correlation between junk food and breakouts or acne. :mrgreen:

👉 “However”, 😥 associations have recently been made between the consumption of high-glycemic foods 🍪🍨🍩 (typically foods that contain refined carbohydrates) and breakouts among people 👨‍👨‍👧‍👦 who are acne-prone. Why? Inflammation is known to aggravate acne, and high-glycemic foods (such as white rice 🍚, sweets, 🍬🍭🍰 and sugary drinks) can raise blood sugar and insulin levels 📈 quickly, leading to inflammation. The key is to limit these possible triggers and balance them out with foods and beverages that contain anti-inflammatory benefits, such as 🍵 green tea, broccoli, and 🐟 fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked with a 32 percent decreased risk of acne when eaten 🍽 at least once a week.
