Stay away from sugar…and avoid acne

Sugar and Acne

Sounds simple doesn’t it? 

Soft drinks sweetened with sugar not only expand your waistline if you over-consume, they definitely don’t help your skin, particularly if you are prone to acne breakouts.

Unfortunately, when it comes to our skin, sugar and acne are definitely related. What we eat can have a definite negative impact, with sugar and refined carbohydrates (a high-glycemic diet) the culprits for many acne sufferers.

If you suffer from acne and frequent spots and pimples, take a moment to think about your daily diet.  Do you consume foods with a high sugar intake – such as soft drinks – and high glycemic load foods such as bread, rice, cereal, pasta?  They could be the cause of your acne or be making it much worse.

So why not put yourself on a 4 week trial?

Try to eliminate sugar completely from your diet and eat only healthy wholefoods with a low-glycemic load.  And don’t forget your daily dosage of help: clear skin – mixed in a glass of refreshing, zero-sugar water!

As an added incentive, good quality dark chocolate doesn’t seem to cause or exacerbate acne – so treat yourself…
