What is Acne Vulgaris?

Acne vulgaris is a common skin condition involving blockage and/or inflammation of hair follicles and its glands. It can be triggered by many factors, such as genetic predisposition, hormone concentrations, diet smoke or stress. Having excess sebum, hormones, bacteria and abnormally high replication of follicular cells are some of the common causes for acne.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Dietary Recommendations:

  1. A low-glycemic diet such as whole grain and unprocessed fruits and vegetables may help reduce the risk of developing acne.
  2. Reduce consumption of milk as the presence of natural hormonal components or bioactive molecules in milk could worsen acne.
  3. Studies suggest that taking foods rich in zinc or oral supplement of zinc may be useful in preventing and treating acne.

Supplement Recommendations:

  1. Retinol (Vitamin A), carotenoids (provitamin A), retinoids (Vitamin A metabolites) , vitamin D and vitamin E may help to improve skin's health.
  2. Studies suggest that fish oil supplementation is associated with an improvement in overall acne severity and may help in reducing acne.
