If you have oily skin, I am sure you have tried most of the creams and lotions available in the market 'designed' to tackle it for you. But did you know your diet plays an important role towards the texture of your skin? Here are foods you should avoid if you have oily skin!
Oily food -- If you love snacking on deep fried food or junk food, your skin is bound to be oily. The saturated and trans fats that you eat, push your skin glands to secrete more oil, making your skin oily. Hence, it is best to avoid oily food.
Red meat--Like junk food, red meat is also rich in trans fat that increase oil secretion in your skin, making you're more prone to an acne breakout. Limit you red meat content and replace it with poultry or fish.
Dairy products--Milk and dairy products too can make your skin oily and increase your risk of an acne breakout. A study published in the journal Dermatoendocrinol, dairy products contain hormones that tend to clog pores, making the skin more oily.
Sugary food and drinks--These include candy, beverages, flavoured milk, sodas and packaged fruit juices. Sweet food tends to alter your blood glucose levels that lead to an increased oil production, making your skin more oily.
Carbohydrate rich food--Bread, cereal, pasta and other products made from refined flour can make your skin oily. All these foods have a high glycemic index that tends to increase oil production in the skin. While completely avoiding these foods might not be possible for many, you can, at least, limit your intake.
