Well. Let's see. They're loaded with sugar. Sugar raises IGF-1. This equals bad news for acne skin.

Myself, I like coffee with a lil sugar added, not too much.

energy drinks I think worst drinks every made becouse contain alot of suger + caffein that blows up adrenaline .

Anyways IGF means "Insulin-like growth factor 1" High suger goes to direct blood and make insulin level high ~

So...?

Choosing foods that are high in sugar, fat content, and refined carbohydrates can all be damaging to your skin health. Studies have shown that too much sugar and refined carbohydrates in your diet can lead to a surge in insulin. This can create the condition known as IGF-1, where an increase in insulin creates the over-production of male hormones. And excessive male hormones can produce an excess of sebum, the greasy stuff that can clog your pores, attract bacteria, and create an environment conducive to acne! IGF-1 is also believed to cause keratinocytes to multiply, which can wreak havoc on skin.
