Also the iodine in salt can aggravate acne. Look at the sodium content on the label...most junk foods and processed foods (e.g. canned soups etc.) use high quantities of salt.

As said, sugar will not directly cause acne but it can definitely exacerbate it due to insulin spikes, hormone imbalance, free radical formation, oxidative stress, inflammation, etc.
