Is there a connection between the food I eat and my acne?

For many years Dermatologists were sceptic about the connection between diet and Acne. Nevertheless, multiple recent studies show that certain types of food mainly cow milk, cheeses made of Cow milk, white flour, sugar and salt may increase the number and severity of Acne breakouts. The reason for breakouts in people that drink a lot of cow milk can be the hormones in this milk that cause the sebaceous glands in the skin to enlarge and clog. Same mechanisms may be responsible for breakouts after sugar rich food (increases the blood levels of insulin) and white flour.
