What causes acne?
Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your tiny hair follicles in your skin become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. This causes bacteria to increase and irritate the skin. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face. However, they can develop on the arms, neck, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders.
Acne is most common among teenagers, usually starting in the early teen years. Although, it affects people of all age
Androgens are hormones that increase in boys and girls during puberty and cause the sebaceous glands to enlarge and make more sebum at the base of the hair follicles.
The increase oil production causes skin cells to become sticky, triggering clogged pores and pimples.
Examples include drugs containing corticosteroids, testosterone or lithium.
Clinical studies described an association between high-glycemic diet and acne
Acne vulgaris, an inflammatory skin disease of adolescence, is closely related to Western diet. Glycemic load diet and frequencies of milk and ice cream intake were positively associated with acne vulgaris. One study conducted with over 1000 teenagers from North Carolina, discovered those who ate more fish and seafood, each of the key signs of acne, comedones, papules, pustules, acne cysts and oily skin, were considerably lower.
Intake of high levels of omega-3 fatty acids linked with decreases in inflammatory factors.
Western diets are often deficient in omega-3s. It is widely believe that increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids through a diet rich in fish and seafood results in a lower rate of inflammatory disease.
