Acne Health Topic

Acne is triggered by the increased production of sebum in the sweat glands. The sebum together with dead skin cells tends to clog the pores creating an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. These bacteria together with the breakdown products of sebum irritate and inflame the pores resulting to acne.5

Further studies on acne shows that it may also be caused by digestive problem wherein the skin becomes an eliminating organ for toxins due to poor digestion or chemical exposure.

  5. Acidophilus and Acne

    Acne is triggered by the increased production of sebum in the sweat glands. The sebum together with dead skin cells tends to clog the pores creating an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. These bacteria together with the breakdown products of sebum irritate and inflame the pores resulting to acne. Further studies on acne shows that it may also be caused by digestive problem wherein the skin becomes an eliminating organ for toxins due to poor digestion or chemical exposure. Acidophilus is a type of lactic producing bacteria that is believed to have beneficial effects on digestion and may have some benefits for those with acne.

  6. Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Acne

    A diet high in omega-3 fatty acids may be involved in the prevention of hyperkeratinization of sebaceous follicles. Leukotriene B4, which is proinflammatory, has been implicated in the pathogenesis of acne. Omega-3 fatty acids along with a low-glycemic diet may have a synergistic effect for reducing the risk of acne.

  8. Acne: Are Milk and Sugar the Causes?

    The dietary pimple producing culprits – diary and sugar (in all its blood sugar raising forms) – both cause spikes in certain pimple producing hormones. Dairy boosts male sex hormones (various forms of testosterone or androgens) and increases insulin levels just as foods that quickly raise blood sugar (sugar and starchy carbs) spike insulin.

  10. Optimizing Your Gut Bacteria Can Help Reduce Acne

    There appears to be more than enough supportive evidence to suggest that gut microbes, and the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract itself, are contributing factors in the acne process. Ensuring your gut bacteria remain balanced should be considered an ongoing process. Cultured foods like raw milk yogurt and kefir, some cheeses, and sauerkraut are good sources of natural, healthy bacteria, provided they are made from raw milk and not pasteurized. When you eat  grain carbohydrates and sugar, it causes a surge of insulin and an insulin-like growth factor called IGF-1 in your body. This can lead to an excess of male hormones, which cause your pores to secrete sebum, a greasy substance that attracts acne-promoting bacteria. Additionally, IGF-1 causes skin cells known as keratinocytes to multiply, a process that is also associated with acne.
