Not only will consuming unhealthy or sugary foods contribute to acne breakouts, but eating these foods can also lead to other severe health issues such as heart disease and stroke.

Sadly, dairy is a culprit for acne and because of this many people choose to eliminate it or reduce their intake. The best option is to find a non-dairy alternative, which will provide you with necessary daily nutrients. Additionally, research has shown a connection between acne and blood sugar when dieting. Doctors recommend eating lots of fruits and vegetables as well as small meals to manage a healthy blood sugar level. Anyone planning on going on a diet to control acne should consult with a doctor first.
