Hey guys,

I'm not sure if this was posted at all, but a recent article in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (a highly respected clinical research publication) explained that diet does indeed affect acne.

While this may not be of new to many readers, it is one of the first times a major publication had a major article expressing the connection. This means two things:

  • More and more dermatologists will be discussing diet with their patients, hopefully improving outcomes
  • With this new insight will shed light to drug makers on the cause of acne, hopefully making more effective medications

What do you need to know from the results?

  • Substitute foods with a high glycemic index (white bread, crackers, snack food) for foods with a low glycemic index (fruits, vegetables)
  • Avoid refined carbohydrates whenever possible (sugary beverages, high fructose corn syrup, etc.)

Reply with any questions!
