The consent seems to be that there is no common food item that has the same impact on each individual. For instance, cheese can lead to acne breakouts in a person but chocolate might spark acne in someone else. While each person has a different response to certain types of food items, there are some certain foods that are well-known to agitate a counteraction.

List Of Bad Foods Cause Acne Breakouts – The Worst Acne Trigger Foods

In the writing today, readers will have the chance to learn about some bad food items that can lead to acne breakouts and the reasons why they are bad for people with acnes. The bad foods cause acne breakouts you will learn about include:

  • Spicy Foods
  • Cheese
  • Nuts
  • Peanut Butter
  • Sushi
  1. Spicy Foods

Several guilty spicy foods (or spice-filled foods, especially the foods that contain red chilies and any type of hot spice) are blamed for acne breakouts. In reality, a Jordanian research that was published in the Eastern Mediterranean Health Journal in 2006 discovered that people with acnes tend to have a relation between spices and the worsened breakouts and acnes.

Nevertheless, the evidence is still rather inconclusive, and studies that are well-controlled between acnes and diet are not prevalent enough to indicate that food items with hot spices are one of the direct causes of acnes. Actually, most dermatologists and doctors stated that there are some more well-known factors, such as family history of acnes, fluctuating hormones (for example, during pre-menstruation), and cosmetics that often cause severe cases of acnes and breakouts.

  1. Cheese

A part of a study has discovered a connection between dairy (or cheese) and the breakouts of acne. According to a study from The Clear Skin Diet – famous nutritional book, some foods tend to trigger the body to make an outburst of the insulin hormone, helping the cells inside your body absorb sugar quicker. If you are pushing the blood sugar levels inside your body up high and fast by consuming many sugary food items throughout the day, then you will notice more insulin circulating in the bloodstream inside your body.

Actually, a research conducted by the American Academy of Dermatology, published in 2007, indicated that there is a close link between acne and dairy products. The research monitored forty three men (many teens and young men) having acne within a three-month period. Experts found out that those men who eat a diet low in glycemic can measure blood sugar levels frequently).

  1. Nuts

Although nuts are usually blamed as a trigger food of pimples, the verdict is still out on the connection between having acne breakouts and consuming a lot of nuts. Actually, most scientific studies revealing the connection between acne and nuts are still relatively unknown.

A series of research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, conducted by the American Academy of Dermatology, discovered that diet is not among the direct contributors to the breakouts. Nevertheless, it claimed that the intake of a diet that is high-glycemic can lead to acne, meanwhile, scientific studies proved that a diet that is low-glycemic (for example, high in veggies, fresh fruits, and lean proteins) is likely to bring about healthy, clear, and clean skin with the reduction of acnes.

  1. Peanut Butter

The studies on whether certain foods can cause acne breakouts are still almost disunion. This means that there is no direct link between acne breakouts and certain food items, such as peanut butter. Nevertheless, that does not prevent some acne patients from quitting certain food items and removing these foods from the daily diets as they consider that these food items are the trigger factors that lead to their acne breakouts.

Actually, when a team of experts from Melbourne University come to the campus to interview some senior-year medical students on their thoughts that particular food items can cause breakouts, it is discovered that 41% believed that diet has a direct link to signs and symptoms of acnes and regular breakouts. Almost everyone thinks that an unhealthy diet can lead to the imbalance of hormones inside the body so that it can cause acne breakouts.

  1. Sushi

This is the last one on the list of bad foods cause acne breakouts women should know to avoid in order to get clean, clear, and smooth skin without pimples and acnes.

We have already indicated that a diet that is glycemic-high (or a diet that can raise the insulin levels of your body) can affect the frequency and severity of acne breakouts. The reason for this is that science shows that high insulin levels can promote an inflammatory response; thereby they can trigger the production of those hormones promoting acne.

A scientific review published in the Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology journal, pointed out that 1 step further by pinpointing an item that is believed to be glycemic-high (for example, rice) and indicating that consuming large amounts of rice every day can lead to the increased levels of insulin inside the body, thereby leading to acne. The glycemic index of white rice (or sushi rice) is relatively high. For example, half a cup of cooked sushi rice contains a glycemic index rating of 17 (above 20 is the index of a food item that is glycemic-high).
