face acne is undoubtedly one of the most distressing things for beauty lovers. In addition to their own physical fitness, recent studies have found that some eating habits can also lead to acne. The latest article in Taiwan’s “health” magazine tells you how to “beat” Acne with diet.
first, choose foods with low glycemic index, such as brown rice and oats. A new study, published in the journal Nutrition and diet, suggests that a diet with a high glycemic index can lead to acne. The possible reason is that these foods will cause a rapid rise in blood sugar, which will affect sebaceous glands and epidermal cells, resulting in pore obstruction, and eventually make acne worse. The common high glycemic index foods are steamed bread and white rice, on the contrary, brown rice, oats and other low glycemic index foods can fight acne.
followed by omega-3 fatty acid rich food. Adequate intake of omega-3 fatty acids can relieve acne, because this nutrient has an anti-inflammatory effect, which helps to reduce the inflammation of acne. Omega-3 fatty acids are mainly from mackerel, saury, salmon and nuts.
finally, choose the food with high dietary fiber. High fiber can reduce the blood glucose response, but also can reduce the amount of androgen in the body (excessive androgen leads to excessive secretion of sebaceous glands), which can significantly improve the situation of acne. Dietary fiber comes from fruits, vegetables and grains. ▲
