The short answer is, yes and no. Here’s why. You need carbohydrates for energy. Unfortunately, we tend to eat way too many of them!

It’s a two-fold problem. Breads, pasta, rice, potatoes, and muffins all tend to aggravate acne breakouts. Dr, Jessica Wu, the Hollywood dermatologist, said this. “In one study, volunteers who ate a high carb diet experienced a 20% increase in their levels of androgens (“male” hormones that stimulate oil glands and cause acne) after just one week; volunteers who ate a diet high in protein had balanced blood sugar and lower levels of androgens in a week.”

Secondly, once consumed, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose, or blood sugar, and interact with proteins in your skin. This stimulates enzymes that break down collagen and elastin!

And you know what that means, thinner skin that’s more likely to wrinkle.

Balance carbohydrates with protein and fresh vegetables. Avoid the refined stuff and stick with whole grains for glowing, beautiful skin!
