In brief: Acne and Diet

Researchers say foods that spike blood sugar can also increase hormones.
The hormones can stimulate oil production, which in turn, can trigger acne. If i drink orange or grapefruit juice, i also develop acne.

In brief: Sugar

Could be coincidence or elevated blood sugar.
Check your A1c level. Remember, acne is an infection and bacteria love to be fed. Sugar is a favorite of theirs. Could also be that your elevated sugar makes you produce more skin oil, a component of acne.
