Your Diet and Acne: Are They Related?

Your Diet and Acne: Are They Related? – A Expert’s Perspective

When you look in the mirror and see an acne flare-up, do you wonder if it’s a result of the cheeseburger and chips you had for dinner last night? It’s a question we often hear at SkinAddict.

We would suggest that you keep a food and skin diary to hopefully then be able to identify if anything in your diet is triggering your acne. 

The connection between diet and acne isn’t straightforward and can vary from person to person. However, scientific research has established some links:

Food to possibly avoid 

High Glycaemic Foods

Foods high on the glycaemic index, such as white bread, sweets, and sugary drinks, cause a rapid spike in blood sugar and may exacerbate acne in some individuals. This rapid rise in blood sugar triggers the body to produce more insulin, leading to increased sebum production and, consequently, acne.

Dairy Products

Several studies have found an association between dairy intake, particularly skimmed milk, and acne, although the reasons for this are not entirely understood. More research is needed in this area. 

Food to enjoy  

Healthy Fats

Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish, flaxseeds, and walnuts, can have an anti-inflammatory effect and may help reduce the severity of acne.

Antioxidant-Rich Foods

Fruits and vegetables are packed with antioxidants that can help combat inflammation and protect your skin from damage. Consuming a diet rich in these foods may support your skin’s health and help control acne.


Sometimes we need an extra boost and taking high-quality supplements can ease the symptoms of problematic skin. Plus they which target acne all over your body
