Diet & Skin


What does diet really have to do with your skin?

You are what you eat is definitely true. How?

Dairy and Dermatology?

According to the American Academy of dermatology, skim, whole, and variants in between have shown to increase breakouts by 44%!

Why? Still being studied, possibly due to hormones in milk instigating an inflammatory response.

So all dairy? Surprisingly, no. Studies show that dairy such as cheese and yogurt do not have the same breakout risk.

So what’s the dermatology deal with chocolate?

Well, chocolate lovers: it is not a direct correlation. High glycemic index food —> sugar spike —> leads to inflammation —> increases oil production on your skin —> clogged pores —> leads breakouts

Greasy foods too?

Unfortunately, yes. Processed foods and white breads or high carb intake also causes a high glycemic cascade

Is a protein diet good for skin?

Whey protein can definitely trigger acne as well, so try the vegan alternative without Whey

How does alcohol affect dermatology?

Empty sugar calories + dilated blood vessels + rosacea flare + inflammatory response + dehydrated skin + poor sleep = breakouts

So far, these are the biggest links to breakouts.

Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is your skin. So, be patient and you will be rewarded!
