Until recently the relationship between nutrition and acne was not scientifically recognised. It's now understood that certain metabolic problems which are worsened by a bad diet are either the sole cause of the skin problem or at least have a very large influence. One example is the elevated blood pressure which may result from untreated diabetes. It has also been reported that excessive sugar, acidic foods, milk products and fatty foods can drastically worsen acne and related skin conditions.
Nutrition, Acne and Bad Skin
High levels of carbohydrates are found in many baked goods: breads, pastries, cakes, cookies, crackers and chips. Such foods, along with candy and other sweets, are known to cause hormonal changes and thus worsen acne. These carbohydrate-rich foods elevate the blood sugar and the production of insulin. Other hormones are also influenced by this process, causing increased oil production in the skin which blocks the pores. The result: the activity of harmful bacteria increases and blackheads and blemishes begin to appear. Acne can also result from this process.
A diet high in low-carbohydrate foods such as fruits and vegetables can be a great first step in your acne treatment.
Our Advice for Acne and Problem Skin: Analyse and Modify Your Diet
The only way to find out if bad nutrition is the cause of your acne is to change your diet. Try to change one habit for a few weeks, for example avoid sugar (be sure to check the label!) or give up milk products. If you relapse or give up on your experiment during this time, you won't know if the new diet works – it takes weeks for pimples to heal.
If you're afraid that you might develop low blood sugar, have no fear. Fruits and fruit drinks without added sugar contain enough fructose to keep you healthy, and all the nutrients found in milk can also be found in other products which are easier to digest.
A diet with little or no meat and rich in other high quality foods certainly offers many health benefits. It improves the way you feel, your fitness level and you life expectancy. A better diet might resolve your acne – it's certainly worth a try!
The Role of Diet in Treating Acne, Pimples and Spots
Even if it wasn't scientifically proven, the influence of diet on the condition of the skin is obvious. Certain foods as well as alcohol can cause skin reactions like acne or a "break out". It's only a small step to see that nutrition can be important in the treatment of acne. In the past the foods in our diet were less processed, and with the rise in the industrialisation of the food production process since the 1950s came an increase in the rate of teenage acne. The connection seems clear.
Digestion is an important factor in many illnesses. This is all the more true for diseases of the skin – the skin is the largest metabolic and waste-eliminating organ of the body. It's really no wonder that the diet of today can exhaust and overwhelm the skin's ability to cope. A healthy diet results in healthier digestion, and that definitely has positive effects on the skin.

In a related way, fangocur Bentomed also plays an important role in the treatment of acne. The absorptive qualities help to remove toxins that have collected in the gastrointestinal tract (the digestive system). The ingredients (sulphur, minerals and electrolytes) help the body from the inside and outside – this leads to better overall health and better skin. Along with a better diet, an inner detoxification can work wonders in treating the skin.
