Woman Looking at Her Acne in the Mirror

Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting both adults and teenagers. There are five major factors that are responsible for causing it.

  • Overactive oil glands
  • Activity of normal skin bacteria
  • Inflammation
  • Blockage of skin pores
  • Hormones

There is also a controversial link between acne and your diet. Much research has been conducted in this area, and some show links to certain foods and diets, while others show less strength in the links between the two. Below is a list of possible triggers of an acne outbreak in your skin. It may be a good idea to keep a log of foods that you consume to see if acne outbreaks occur after consumption of some of these potentially triggering foods.

Foods You May Want To Avoid

  • Refined foods such as sugars and grains
  • Foods made with milk products
  • Fast Food
  • Omega-6 Fatty Acid foods
  • Whey protein powder
  • Chocolate
  • Foods that you have a sensitivity to

If you are looking for ways to reduce your acne symptoms, why not try incorporating foods that could limit your outbreaks such as Vitamins A, D, E and zinc. Green tea, turmeric, Omega-3 fatty acids and probiotics are all helpful to incorporate into your diet.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
