JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - The food you eat does not always make you healthy. There is even a saying that goes something like: "You are what you eat." Therefore, there is no doubt that all the food you consume has its own effects on the body, including your skin.
For women, it is advisable to avoid foods that cause acne. Foods that cause acne may have become part of daily consumption habits. This time, Netralnews.com shows four foods that cause acne that need to be avoided, as quoted from Fashion and Food Hong Kong.
1. Sugar and carbohydrates
Acne breakouts can occur due to excessive consumption of carbohydrates and sugar, such as soda, rice, bread, and cake. The sugar and carbohydrates in these foods usually get into your blood quickly. When insulin is produced to balance blood sugar levels, it also stimulates the production of other hormones that trigger oil on the facial skin.
Nuts contain androgens which can make acne worse by increasing sebum production. However, you do not need to worry, as not all types of nuts can trigger acnes. If you are a nut or bean lover, choose nuts like almonds and cashew which are safe for acne prone skin.
3. Chocolates containing dairy milk
If you like to eat chocolates, you should immediately switch to dark chocolate with a minimum of 70 percent cocoa content. Chocolate mixed with milk or other dairy products usually contains sugar and trans fat which can cause acne on the skin.
4. Fast food
Indeed, fast food is the easiest way to fill the stomach, and usually taste good. Unfortunately, in addition to not being good for health, fast food can also be one of the triggers for acne.
