2023-10-04 10:54
Patients with skin conditions should generally avoid the following foods. However, depending on your skin condition and the severity of your skin disease, you may react differently to different foods, so it’s important to find your own personalized diet to maintain healthy skin.

Excess sugar: Consuming too much sugar and simple carbohydrates can negatively impact your skin. Sugar can cause skin inflammation and is strongly linked to acne.

Dairy: For some dermatologists, especially those treating atopic dermatitis, dairy may be a food to avoid. If you are lactose intolerant or allergic to lactose, it can also worsen your skin symptoms.

Saturated fats: Foods high in fat can be harmful, especially for individuals with seborrheic dermatitis.

Excessive caffeine: Excessive caffeine intake can lead to skin rashes or itching, so it’s best to avoid it.

Spicy foods: Spicy foods can cause itchy skin and should be avoided.

Excessive alcohol: Alcohol can negatively affect your skin and worsen your symptoms.

Additives and artificial flavors: Some artificial flavors and food additives can have adverse effects on your skin, so it’s important to carefully check food ingredients.

Irritating foods: It is recommended to avoid irritating foods such as excessive spices, condiments, ice cream, chocolate, and shrimp, as they can worsen skin inflammation.
