Festival induced acne is quite common. Acne flares due to excess intake of sweets and rich food which have a high glycemic index during festivals and wedding season. Foods with high glycemic index are those which cause a rapid rise in blood sugar levels. Apart from sweets and direct sugars this includes foods like white bread, French fries, baked potatoes, croissants, aerated drinks etc. As the intake of these foods increase, insulin levels rise and in turn, increase the sebum or oil production in the skin. This eventually leads to clogging of pores creating a perfect environment for bacteria to grow, thrive and cause the development of acne. Although it is not necessary to completely restrict the above foods, eating them judiciously and in moderate quantity is always helpful. If you have a sweet tooth, it is advisable for you to replace refined sugars with natural sugars found in fruits and salads.
