They say that you are what you eat, and so our diet can play a major role in our overall wellbeing and health. Some people have claimed that the diet can be used in the treatment of acne, although this is a fairly controversial and contentious issue among the medical profession by virtue of the fact that there is a great deal of misinformation that somewhat confuses the issue somewhat.
Among laypeople, there is a tendency to assume that an excessive consumption of chocolate, refined sugar (irrespective of the form that it comes in), dairy products and oily food will all help to contribute towards the development and severity of acne. Therefore, if these beliefs are to be believed, then it would stand to reason then, that if the consumption of them was reduced, this would constitute in and of itself, an effective treatment of acne.
In reality, the majority of acne is suffered as a result of hormone imbalance and so while it maybe an idea to ensure that you monitor the above food items specified in the above paragraph, the cold truth of the matter is that the effect they have on acne is limited.
What foods/vitamins should I eat more of?
Vitamin B3 is without a shadow of any doubt, one of the most essential vitamins an acne sufferer can have in their diet and the reason for this is due to the fact that Vitamin B3 is responsible for stimulating circulation around the body. This in turn will help the blood flow to the face and around the body meaning that the pores around the body that are constantly getting clogged up will get the nourishment that they need.
According to the latest studies conducted within the American medical community, one of the tell tale signs of B6 deficiency is excessive inflammation, redness, soreness and tenderness of the skin. Sound familiar? These are all the symptoms attributed to acne. It stands to reason then that acne sufferers currently suffer from too low levels of this essential vitamin.
Omega 3 Fatty acids have also been recommended by dermatologists (skin experts) as a potent ally in the prevention and management of acne.
