A low glycemic diet is sometimes advised for people with diabetes because it raises blood sugar slowly and reduces blood sugar spikes. Well, now Australian dermatologists have found that it clears up your skin as well.
After twelve weeks on a low-glycemic diet, about twenty pimple-riddled young men had 22 fewer acne lesions than when they started. A control group only had about fourteen fewer acne lesions.
The low-glycemic group also lost weight, became more sensitive to insulin, and had reduced levels of the male sex hormone androgen. The researchers, reporting in the August 2006 Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, weren't sure if the pimple-fighting effects of the diet were due to better insulin sensitivity, weight loss, or both. High levels of insulin are thought to contribute to acne.
