Ah, the dreaded break out. Those pesky skin blemishes always seem to pop up at the worst times. Got a hot date tonight? Or your best friend's wedding is tomorrow? Our faces are masters at picking the not so perfect pimple timing. Acne can be caused by a number of factors including stress and hormonal fluctuations, but research shows some foods in your diet could also be to blame. Here are the top 5 acne causing culinary culprits.
Milk is full of hormones which can cause skin to react. A study conducted in Malaysia found participants who consumed milk were 4 times more likely to break out.
Looks like your favourite tofurky burger may be to blame for bouts of acne. Tofu is made from soy which can cause long-lasting break outs on your skin.
A slice of pizza is loaded with high-GI carbs and cheesy dairy. This is a dangerous combo for your skin.
But wait! Isn't this delicious little snack healthy for you? It is generally healthy, but it has a high soy content. Phytoestrogens, found in many high soy foods, cause hormonal havoc that can lead to pimples.
Mmm...cookies! Baked with love, sugar, dairy and refined carbs. These ingredients pose a triple threat to clear skin!
Got any blemish horror stories for us? Which of these foods would be the hardest to give up?
