Symptoms, conditions and causes

What's the connection between high insulin and acne? Can I remedy it?

When you eat high amounts of sugar or carbohydrates, that increases your insulin level. Insulin, in its turn, increases androgens (male sex hormones that play a role in the amount of oil your skin produces). When your androgens are elevated, you get skin acne.

Remedies:

  • Avoid sugars and refined carbohydrates (breads, pastas etc.)

  • Healthy Keto® diet

  • Intermittent fasting

  • Avoid dairy products

  • Vitamin A
