Dr. Fusco mentions in a 2002 study of 115 people in New Guinea that their high protein and plant food diet ensured that they would not get pimples, whereas people from New Guinea who lived in one of the Western countries suffered from acne, as they ate a diet high in refined carbs and saturated fats. Apparently eating a diet with a high glycemic index, or processed foods, can cause your insulin levels to increase, which then increases sebum production and clogged pores.

Here are 7 foods that trigger your acne.
1. Dairy Products. The theory is that the milk you drink comes from cows that are given a high-hormone diet, and it’s these hormones that cause the oil glands to go into overdrive.
2. Bread. White breads are going to play a factor in your acne. The greater the whole wheat content the less effect on your acne.
3. Bagels. Bagels may be worse than bread, as the size of the bagel you eat is considerably larger than if you just ate one slice of whole wheat bread.
4. Chips. Potato chips and even deep fried chips are both laden with calories from the fat that they were prepared in. This fat has a considerably higher caloric content than if you simply ate one cookie.
5. Chocolate. Apparently the more chocolate you eat, the worse your acne breakout. But Dr. William Danby from Dartmouth University says that you can still eat dark chocolate, as it contains no milk products which may be responsible for the breakouts.
6. Cake. Cake can be particularly bad for you as not only does it contain a high number of carbs, but also a high number of calories from the fat content, and the sugar content of both the cake, and the frosting.
7. Cookies. Cookies may be a concern for your acne, as most teenagers can’t eat just one. Those calories add up over the course of one day.
Now that you understand how high carbs and high fat content can trigger your pancreas into producing too much insulin, which can trigger sebum production and the clogging of pores, and lead to acne, you can learn how to eat better. Increasing your intake of unprocessed fruits and vegetables will help provide the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs. Best of all, you can eat as many as you want, as long as you don’t overload them with fat!
