Is It Possible That The Vegetables Could Help Treat Acne

Author : Andy Panman

We know that many people can suffer with acne. The main group of people that suffer with this are teenagers and this will start to affect them when they are around 13 years of age. Generally over a period of time this will start to disappear slowly and does not require much treatment whatsoever. For some teenagers this unfortunately will keep with them until their 20s and even for some they may only start to get acting when they are in their 20s. Being in your 20s and getting acne can be quite difficult because generally it can be more severe and with that little bit more difficult to control. You'll sometimes find that women who are pregnant can also suffer from acne and this is mainly due to hormone changes. This will especially affect women in the first trimester of their pregnancy and the tendency is that many women suffer from this may have also had this when they were teenagers.

One of the main reasons why people get to this because of overproducing sebaceous follicles. These follicles that are affected will be mainly around the face, neck and chest. They are normally affected due to hormones which are transmitting to the sebaceous follicles and telling them to increase levels of oily sebum. Most of this is natural anyway and it's a natural way for the body to regulate their body temperatures by using this natural secretion.

It's important that we have this only substance on their skins because it helps the body to retain heat and if we were unable to do this the body will not be able to regulate air temperature correctly. One of the main issues that sometimes the pores are affected as they begin to clog with dirt and when this happens we can have a tendency to get acne.

How can vegetables help

This is a good question and there have been many studies over the years that have linked diets with acne. In a study that was done in the United States recently it was actually proven that diet and acne are actually together. During the study they actually found that vegetables can help in the treatment of acne can reduce breakouts.

What they found was that vegetables help in lowering the blood sugar levels. Vegetables also slow down and the distribution of these sugars in their body which is interesting news. Many of the people that participated in this study that found that red lesions started to disappear or go away completely. These reasons are characteristically associated with acne and the fact that they start to reduce is a good sign.

Participants took part in the study for around 12 weeks during this time they change their diet and did not eat much meat whatsoever. They also change their diet soda that were more carbohydrates and high fiber foods. Reports on the case to the proof that results were really interesting. In fact, the report said the results were amazing.

I would always advise people who are thinking of changing diet to consult with a doctor before just to ensure that everything is okay. You may also want to consult with a dietitian especially if you are not 100% sure what you need to be eating. Hope this has given you some quick tips and some ideas that you may need to go research and find more about before considering doing it. It's interesting reading and hopefully it's been able to help in some way.
