Don’t Eat That — You’ll Get Spots!!!
We have all heard this; from our Parents, Our friends and possibly even the family doctor.
The plain fact is, even after extensive studies,:
Scientists have not found any connection between a person’s diet and acne.
Not chocolate. Not French fries, Hamburgers or even Pizza.!
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, “A healthy well balanced diet is essential for providing the raw materials for healthy skin,” but also added that “sugary foods or those high in fat do not cause acne.”
A similar study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association also concurred, They are quoted as saying “Diet plays no role in acne treatment in most patients…even large amounts of certain foods have not clinically exacerbated acne.”
Quite naturally that is not the green light to go and overindulge on fatty or sugar rich foods, your skin is in fact the biggest organ in the body and as they say “whatever is good for you is good for your skin”.
Nutrients For Healthy Skin.
There are a few nutrients and vitamins in everyday foods that are known to promote a healthy body and by default a healthy skin! If you can get to know these substances, you are halfway there to alleviating your acne problems.
Naturally occurring Vitamin A, also known as retinol, is found in most fish oils, liver and dairy products.
The Vitamin A found in vegetables and plants is known as Beta-carotene, it is found generally in yellow and orange fruits and vegetable such as carrots, yams, apricots and melon, along with green herbs and vegetables such as parsley, kale and spinach.
Too much Vitamin A can be harmful, so do not take too much at once.
Stress is proven to aggravate some kinds of acne, and Vitamin B-2 is good at calming stress levels. Vitamin B-2 is found in foods such as whole grains, fish, milk, eggs, meat and leafy green vegetables.
This is commonly found in certain nuts, eggs, avocados, liver and lean meats, it is known to improve circulation which boosts a healthy skin. It also lowers cholesterol levels in the blood. Another benefit of Vit B-3 is that it helps the body process sugars and fats more efficiently , allowing it to turn into energy more readily
Vitamin E is often found in almonds, peanuts, sunflower seeds, broccoli, wheat germ and vegetable oils. It is a powerful antioxidant, protecting your cells against the effects of toxins, which are a potentially damaging by-product of the body’s metabolism process.
Even in small quantities, Zinc is known to boost the immune system, improving overall health, which will be reflected in the skin. Zinc is found in eggs, whole grains, nuts and mushrooms.
Know Your Own Acne Triggers.
Since everybody’s acne is different, there could well be certain foods that can cause acne flare-ups in your skin. Obviously, these foods should be avoided. It is also a good idea to check any vitamin supplements for their iodine content; normal amounts of iodine have been proven to not affect skin; however amounts greater than the RDA of 150 mcg may well aggravate your acne.
Overall, just use your common sense.
Drink lots of water and try and eat a healthy, balanced diet — but do not be afraid to indulge your cravings every now and then !!.
