Acne is caused by secretion of too much oil in the body. You might not have noticed but it may be the food (s) that you eat that causes the acne popping up on your face. We bring to you, foods that you must avoid to get an acne-free skin.
Some people assume that drinking milk and other dairy products daily is extremely healthy for our body and digestive system. However, this might not be true in its entirety. Excess milk can cause the body to produce a lot of insulin that is directly linked to acne. So, reduce milk intake to prevent acne.
Gluten present in bread does not only affect the small intestine negatively but also increases inflammation in the body. Eliminating bread from your daily diet can prove to be quite beneficial.
Fried foods have been found to worsen acne. This is because of the fat present in the processed fried foods which can make your skin look unhealthy and can even lead to accumulation of excess oil.

Caffeine does not only lead to acne, it can also allow it spread rapidly all over the skin. If you wish to have a clearer skin, then you must limit or avoid drinking coffee or anything that contains caffeine.
