What Are The Foods That Trigger Pimples & Acne?

A lot of people battle with pimples and acne during and shortly after puberty while some others experience it throughout the teenage years. Throughout these periods of my life, I did not have pimples and acnes anywhere on my face and body. I alway pride myself in that because my face was always clear and clean. I thought this would continue like that forever but I was wrong – I would later have my own fair share of pimples later on.

What Are Pimples And Acne? Any Differences?

One of our readers sent a message to ask if the food they eat could cause acne or pimples and we will try to address that. Many people don’t even know the differences between pimples and acne. Someone even told me that pimples show on black peoples’ skin while acne only come out on white peoples’ skin. I will try as much as possible not to dwell too much on these because the purpose of this post is how some foods lead to the onset of acne and pimples on our skin. Yes, food can trigger pimples.

Acne is that inflammation of the skin in which the secreted sebum gets collected in the pores of the skin and remains there. This causes the skin to swell up in the form of a breakout. Acne will most likely have a white head (not in every case) and is painful to touch. If it is a pimple, it would normally not be painful unless it is too severe.

  2. Thanks for that piece. But I want to ask, does oily foods cause pimples and acne? People say it and I want to know, please how true is that?

    1. No food has actually been directly linked to development of pimples and acne. However, different people have observed that different foods cause it for them and this is what we should do too – observe what could be the cause. For some people, it is stress for some others, when they allow sweat to linger too much on their faces.
