Re: does avocado cause acne to flare up?
well to start out i would just lilke to say that i absolutely love avacados!!
But unfortunately they contain a lot of fat and cant eat them. one of the reasons for acne is overactive sebaceous glands which is triggered by androgens which is made from cholesterol which is made from dietary fat.
So i would say YES! high fat foods can make acne worse.
Plus sebum itself is made up of lipids(fat) so i would think that the less dietary fat you ingest would equate to your body making less sebum.
its role is secondary to sugar,but fat only makes it worse.it seems to me.
This is based on my ever growing knowledge and i may be wrong. I encourage you do prove or disprove me/share your opinions.
