“You are what you eat” is a very famous saying when it comes to syncing your diet with your skin concerns. High sugar intake has proven its evident links to inflammation and breakouts to the skin. Naturally, a daily dose of dairy could cause an adverse effect to the skin as it contains a lot of sugar via lactose. However, it is hard to track that dairy is the sole cause for your breakouts as there are many added ingredients towards the final products when we consume. Thus, the current evidence is actually very limited and conflicting. Dairy can be a triggering factor for acne and breakouts but it is high likely caused by sugar, stress or hormonal changes.
It is pointed out that not only desserts contain sugar but savory foods, like cheese or bread, have a high glycemic index. Individuals need to reflect on their food intake as switching to a lower glycemic index can result in the body producing lesser insulins which can help reduce outbreaks. Individuals can turn to anti-inflammatory properties rich in Omega-3s that can help calm down acne breakouts.
Calcium and protein can be found in found in our daily intake like :
- Collard greens
- Chia Seeds
These natural ingredients help break down our food so much simpler compared to the complex structure of dairy that contains casein, lactose and hormones that is difficult on the digestive system. This reflects the slow down in our body process that manifests itself through our skin. It is essential for individuals to learn their adaptability with their food intake and find healthier alternatives for a long term result in both skin and health care.
