SUGAR AND DAIRY; REAL TALK
Do you experience hormonal acne?
Hormones, along with many other factors, including bacteria, skin cell abnormalities, genetics, and stress levels all play a role.
Lifestyle factors and dietary choices play a role in reducing symptoms.
Avoiding blood sugar fluctuations by choosing low-glycemic-index foods and high quality protein is key to controlling acne.
Eating sugary foods increases levels of insulin, which then stimulates the release of other hormones, such as insulin-like growth factor 1 which is a major contributor to the development of acne.
Dairy products ALSO promote insulin secretion and the production of IGF-1!
Say goodbye dairy and refined sugars!
