We talk a lot about Korean skin care. We look to them for the latest and greatest in all things beauty -- from the newest rendition of BB cream to the latest way to hydrate skin. But after pilfering products from their medicine cabinets, we might want to raid their refrigerators, too. Studies suggest that their glowing, poreless skin might be less about their revered 10-step skin-care regimen and more a product of their low-glycemic, vegetable- and seafood-based diet.
In one study, Korean researchers found that when adults followed a typical low-glycemic Korean diet for 10 weeks, acne severity dropped by 27 percent, sebaceous gland size dropped by 25 percent and overall inflammation dropped by 40 to 50 percent. With numbers like that, consider us swayed in the argument for the skin-diet connection.
