Eat Your Way To Clear Skin With An Acne Diet?
There are Many conflicting theories about an anti-acne diet.
Many doctors ignore this matter completely, while a lot of
magazines offer "perfect" and "100% sure" acne diets. Where's
the truth? Is there any diet that can really cure acne?
Theoretically, it is possible that a diet can affect this
disease. Since the underlying cause of acne is hormonal
instability, we can try to repair it by constructing a diet that
will stimulate the production of certain hormones and reducing
the quantity of others. However for practical reasons it is very
difficult to create a working anti-acne diet.
Some food has to be eaten in such quantity to have an effect
that it is simply impossible to do that. Some kinds of food
should be avoided because of acne, but have to be eaten because
of the nutritional value. And, let's face it, sometimes acne is
so severe that no diet could help.
Tips and guidelines
While it's not practical to create a complete anti-acne diet,
there are a few tips and guidelines you can follow.
1. Avoid any androgenic hormones in your food. Androgenic
hormones tell your skin's oil glands just how much sebum or skin
oil to excrete. DHEA, testosterone, androstenedione should be
avoided at all cost - all of them are known to increase the
symptoms of acne. Your diet should be completely
or as close to it as possible.
2. Don't drink an excessive amount of milk when you have acne.
There are lots of hormones in milk of pregnant cows, and that is
the majority of marketed milk and dairy products. If you reduce
the quantity of milk in your diet, you will probably minimize
the amount of hormones you intake. Progesterone, 5-alpha reduced
steroids, and other steroid hormones when digested can break
down into DHT, the final molecule that turns on the oil cells in
3. If you suffer from acne, think about increasing the quantity
of fish in your diet. Most fish has very important omega-3 oils
that improve health of your skin.
4. It is said that Vitamin E may sometimes worsen acne symptoms,
so avoiding it in your diet may help you get rid of the disease.
However, there are no hard facts to support for that idea.
5. Avoid sugar. It is known to increase the symptoms of acne.
6. Don't expect miracles. No anti-acne diet can cure the disease
You are unlikely to eat yourself free of acne, but good eating
habits and a healthy lifestyle will certainly help
