Acne is a symptom of underlying conditions. While genetics can aggravate the problem, especially during the teen years, the major factors are good diet, exercise, and positive spiritual outlook.
Particular problems are excesses of fatty foods, salty foods, sugars and sweet foods, alcohol, and animal meats.
Following the Goddess Diet Plan should help reduce the occurence and frequency of acne (although probably not completely eliminate the problem unless you are genetically lucky).
A 2007 study showed that lowering insulin levels reduces acne. The researchers split 43 men ages 15 to 25 between two groups for 12-weeks, one group eating a high glycemic load (typical Western diet) and the other eating a lower glycemic diet emphasizing whole grains, fruits, and fish. The low glycemic-load diet led to a significant reduction in the number of acne vulgaris lesions. The experimental diet also reduced weight, reduced the free androgen index, and increased insulin-like growth factor binding protein when compared with a high glycemic-load diet. The study, conducted by Robyn N. Smith and Neil J. Mann of the School of Applied Sciences, RMIT University (Melbourne, Australia), Anna Braue of the Department of Dermatotly, Royal Melbourne Hospital (Australia), Henna Mäkeläinen of the Department of Dermatology, Royal Childrens Hospital (Australia), and George A. Varigos of the Department of Biochemistry and Food Chemistry, Turku University (Finland), was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Volume 57, Issue 2, August 2007, pages 247-256.
