Carbohydrates & Oily Skin
Foodies won’t like this, but high glycemic load diets containing sugar, bread, pasta, rice, and other foods made with flowers are very well-known acne triggers. We know they are delicious, but, unfortunately, the flavor comes at a great cost.
These foods are rapidly digested into sugar, resulting in a dangerous, rapid rise in blood sugar. It triggers your body to produce more male hormones, encouraging pores in the skin to secrete large quantities of sebum. And this is how acne begins!
High carbohydrate foods also promote enlargement of the sebaceous glands causing blackheads, they enable weight gain, and they raise the risk of type 2 diabetes. So, to make sure your skin is healthy and clean, and you don’t risk getting sick, try to clear out the refined ‘white’ carbohydrates and sugars from your diet by replacing them with the ‘good’ carbs, like veggies, fruits, beans, and whole grains.
At first glance, a low glycemic load diet appears to be difficult, but it also includes healthy fats, nuts, and seeds, and it is a safe and effective way to take care of your inside and outside!
