Find out which acne causing foods you should avoid

While it has not been completely proven that certain foods cause acne, have you noticed how whenever you eat a certain something, whether it be a piece of chocolate or those French fries, that the very next day you have a lovely red zit starting you in the face? There are numerous acne causing foods that do have an impact on the appearance of our skin because many of them contain toxins and oils which are excreted from our bodies, and one of the most common ways is through the pores on our skin. Foods that are high in sugar tend to cause acne because they contribute to the reduction of the natural defense of your body against bacterial infection, which is responsible for acne in many cases. Acne causing foods with high amounts of sugar include doughnuts, soda, chocolate, candy and cookies to name a few. By removing these foods from your diet and replacing them with other foods, you can actually reduce your acne and improve the state of your skin. Read Got Acne?
