Are these foods ruining your skin?

alignyo lifestyle news: Foods that can cause acne
General

Can’t seem to get clear skin no matter what you do? It might be your diet. This post from Blisstree calls out foods that can give you acne. 

According to scientific speculation, here are the worst foods for your complexion:

Refined Carbs

Shocking. Just kidding, not shocking even a little bit. According to Dr. Francesca Fusco:

This next bit actually did shock me: the greasy fried foods that cause acne, make you break out from processed carbs and not from fat.

Theoretically, refined carbohydrates cause spikes in insulin levels which hikes up your sebum and clogs your pores.

Dairy

Diet Soda

The aspartame and artificual sweeteners in diet soda have been linked to lowering your skin’s natural pH. Our bods need high levels of alkalinity in order to be healthy and look fresh.

This is mostly irritating information. I don’t drink diet soda, but grilled cheese sandwiches are tantamount to pure happiness as far as I’m concerned.
