Foods to avoid

if you have acne

  • Grains (both gluten-containing and non-gluten) and sugar should be avoided if you struggle with acne.
  • Gluten may make your gut more permeable, which allows proteins to get into your bloodstream that would otherwise have been excluded, sensitizing your immune system and promoting inflammation, which can lead to acne.
  • When you eat starchy carbs, grains, and sugar/fructose, it causes a surge of insulin and insulin-like growth factor called IGF-1 in your body. This surge can lead to an excess of male hormones, which cause your pores to secrete sebum, a greasy substance that attracts acne-promoting bacteria.
