Acne Diet – 4 Foods That Cause Acne

You may have heard that certain foods cause acne. This is actually true. While eating a piece of chocolate or a potato chip once in a while isn’t going to cause pimples to form, if you consistently eat acne-causing foods all the time, every day, then it’s highly likely that you’ll develop a problem with pimples.

Eating offending foods once or twice a week is about all you should indulge if you’re prone to blemishes. Further, while eating acne-producing foods will bring on pimples, cutting those foods out will clear up your acne pretty quickly. So, in order to keep a clear complexion, avoid the following four foods that cause acne:

1. Sugar. Acne is caused by bacteria, and bacteria thrives on sugar. If you’re constantly eating cookies, ice cream, cake and other sweets, it’s highly likely you’ll have acne in your future.

Almost any type of sugar will cause acne to form, including table sugar, molasses, maple syrup, and honey. The sugar in fruit is generally all right, however, so if you get a craving for something sweet, eat an apple, a pear, or a banana.

2. Chocolate. You’ve probably heard that chocolate consumption can cause acne, and it’s really true. The main reason for this is its sugar content, but even sugar-free dark chocolate can cause acne if you eat it on a regular basis. The caffeine content of chocolate seems to feed pimples.

3. Fried foods. The grease and oil in fried foods will clog your pores and cause pimples. This means you need to avoid French fries, fried chicken, potato chips, tempura vegetables, and any other kind of food that’s been fried to a crisp.

4. Soda. Yes, even your beloved sodas will cause acne. Like chocolate, the cause is the sugar and caffeine content of sodas. To keep yourself free of pimples, avoid Coca-Cola, Pepsi, root beer, and any other kind of soda pop. If you must have something fizzy to drink, try mixing fruit juice with seltzer water.
