Fight acne and lose weight…

Acne refers to a common skin disorder caused by the proliferation of bacteria in the pilosebaceous follicle. The causes are diverse, as evidenced by our section Acne tips.

In adolescents, puberty causes an increase in the production of sex hormones that stimulate the sebaceous glands. The latter then secrete excess sebum, an oily substance. We are talking about hyperseborrhea.

It is this excess sebum which is the cause of the appearance of imperfections such as blackheads. But, unlike the stereotypes, acne does not only affect adolescents, in fact nearly a quarter of adults suffer from it, especially women.

Hormones therefore play an important role in the appearance of acne, but it is also possible that the origin is genetic, medicinal, linked to stress, pollution, lifestyle or diet.

Against acne and blemishes, it is important toadopt good food hygiene. Here are some interesting tips for effectively fighting acne by reducing refined sugars and choosing quality fatty acids.


Products of animal origin, the cause of imperfections

Healthy for the skin and for the figure, favor vegetable oils on your plate. Put aside fats of animal origin such as butter. Furthermore, the dairy products are the enemies of acne-prone skin. Excess dairy products can amplify acne in some people.

Their richness in omega-6 fatty acids would in fact aggravate the inflammatory state, and their action on insulin and testosterone would have an impact on the skin. But don't panic, many plant-based drinks are available in the organic section of your store (almond, oats, soy, rice, etc.). Less sebum therefore produces fewer spots and healthier fats for your health and your figure.

In the case of acne-prone skin, also consider favoring vegan cosmetics et non-comedogenic.

Hydration, at the heart of the fight against pimples

Yes, we can never repeat it enough: drink water instead of soda. If you want to fight acne and lose weight, soda definitely won't help you. Moisturizing your skin is one of the essential commandments for treating acne.

Furthermore, theJonzac thermal water has the particularity of being isotonic, its richness in minerals has a natural affinity with the skin cells. You will find this water rich in minerals in the Pure mattifying purifying cream from the Jonzac brand, a certified organic care range.


Vitamins at the heart of an anti-acne diet

Vitamins for acneLuminous skin reflects good health. Consuming foods rich in key nutrients may provide some solutions to acne problems. See our 10 commandments against acne.

Favor foods rich in vitamins A, B6 and C. They give beautiful skin. THE beta carotene, which is transformed into vitamin A by the body, would reduce the production of sebum.

The best sources of beta-carotene are brightly colored fruits and dark green leafy vegetables. The tomato, for example, is a preferred food; it can be incorporated into your diet but also used in the form of homemade anti-acne mask.

La vitamin C plays an essential role in the skin care ritual. However, the human body does not produce this vitamin. It is therefore essential to put vitamin C at the heart of our diet.

The benefits of vitamin C for the skin include stimulating collagen production and neutralizing free radicals. So we don't hesitate to eat guava, parsley, turnips, kiwis, citrus fruits, cruciferous vegetables, peppers, strawberries, blackcurrants.

Acne and diet, some interesting ingredients

Goji berries and acai rich in vitamin C, also have super antioxidant powers and are dermo-stimulating thanks to the B vitamins, carotenes and fruit acids they contain. Thanks to its composition of vitamins and minerals, acai has powerful moisturizing, nourishing and restorative properties. Rich in flavonoids, it also stimulates blood microcirculation and reactivates the radiance of the skin on your face.

Add vitamin B6 thanks to the consumption of oilseed dried fruits, dried beans, lentils, avocado, potato, banana and leafy vegetables contain it. These foods can fight acne by helping regulate the hormones that cause breakouts.

Do not forget the trace elements. Some studies link this mineral to skin health. Zinc promotes good hormonal levels. Seafood (oysters, in particular), milk and nuts are rich in zinc.


Conclusion on acne and diet

Clearly, eating healthy, and in particular consuming lots of fruits and vegetables, will provide you with plenty of vitamins and will allow you to reduce your acne while staying in shape. If you change your diet towards more healthy ingredients, it is obvious that you will be able to lose weight while fighting acne. Rich in refined sugars and saturated fats, processed products should therefore be limited.

The main thing, especially for vegetables, is not to lose sight of the fact that the method of preparation of vegetables determines their intake of healthy vitamins. Steam cooking will allow you to preserve as many vitamins as possible, while cooking with butter will tend to reduce vitamin intake and promote fat intake, which is of course very harmful to the skin... and the figure.
