Acne, known as comedo, is a common skin condition that occurs because of an increased production of oil, known as sebum, from the sebaceous glands. This over-production of sebum causes inflammation of the hair follicles or the surface of the skin. The excessive oil secretion is the most common amongst adolescents who have reached the age of puberty, the age that is dominated by widespread hormonal changes. It is also more prevalent amongst women experiencing imbalances in their menstrual cycle and also pregnant women. It has long been believed that certain foods can also cause or trigger acne, while others refute the claims.Below is a list of foods that cause acne. Avoid including these in your daily diet, or at least restrict their intake, for an acne-free life.
