DETOXING TO IM­PROVE SKIN HEALTH

Best Health - - BITES -

There’s still no de­fin­i­tive an­swer to the hype that choco­late (and other sug­ars), dairy and carbs cause acne. Our diet’s role in our skin health is fi­nally be­ing se­ri­ously ex­am­ined by clin­i­cal re­search and there ap­pears to be a link be­tween high-glycemic foods and acne, but it’s still too early to tell. “It wouldn’t hurt to cut back on pro­cessed, sug­ary foods,” says Bris­sette. “But there’s no proof for cut­ting all sug­ars, in­clud­ing carbs, from your diet to help your skin. In fact, the re­verse is true: A lot of high-pro­tein, high-fat di­ets are linked to acne.” VER­DICT If you want to eat for health­ier skin, aim for lots of fruits and veg­eta­bles, along with healthy fats and pro­teins, and drink lots of wa­ter, says Bris­sette. And don’t deny your­self the odd sugar crav­ing be­cause you’re wor­ried it will cause a break­out.
