Generally, it's recognized that acne may be promoted by certain dietary factors. Dairy products and high glycemic foods may play a role in aggravating acne.

Some speculatory evidence has suggested that some component of western lifestyles, possibly diet, might be responsible for higher rates of acne. An article from the American Medical Association observed of more than 1000 Pacific islanders living their traditional lifestyles and found no cases of acne. Given that similar islanders who adopt western diets do develop a reasonable percentage of acne, the author's concluded that genetics alone could not explain the differences observed and that a western, high-glycemic diet may play a role in promoting acne development.

Another study from the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology found that high milk consumption amongst women was significantly correlated with acne rates. It's important to realize that just because two things are related doesn't necessarily mean that one causes another, however this relationship is still suggestive.

Clearly, not all individuals who consume high-glycemic diet or a large number of dairy products suffer from acne. Acne is a complex condition, contributed to and caused by a number of factors, such as hormones, stress, genetics and skin type. If you do suffer from acne, keep a log of what you're eating, and see if changing for a week does improve your skin.
