Foods which are no-no for oily skin

Foods which are no-no for oily skin|

Oily skin is a problem often handed down through generations within your family. While dietary changes are often prescribed to treat oily skin or its complications, avoiding certain foods may help in improving your skin to a great extent.

While the list of foods to avoid if you have oily skin is endless, here’s where you can start. In other words, avoid these like the plague.

Red meat

Beef, lamb and sausages contain a huge amount of saturated fats which cause obesity, heart diseases and inflammation. Moreover, it is the preparation that affects your health and skin more than the meal. So try baking and boiled dishes rather than deep frying them to avoid oily skin and acne problems.


Regular consumption of dairy products leads to acne issues. Moreover, such foods also hasten the ageing process. You can get your daily calcium dose from other green leafy vegetables, paneer and tofu.

Added sugars

Limit your consumption of soft drinks, fruit punches, jams, jelly, frozen desserts and commercially baked cakes and pastries. These contain added sugars like corn syrup, maltose and cane sugar with high glycemic index which might offset your blood sugar and hormone levels leading to increases in oil production and high incidence of acne and pimples.

Enriched flour

Enriched flour is always stripped of its nutrients and fiber content. As a result, enriched cereals, pastas, breads and baked goods digest less efficiently and have a higher impact on your blood sugar leading to increases in oil production in your skin.
