But you have to bear in mind that though there might be a relationship between the hypoglycemic index and acne
, food items high on the hypoglycemic index do not definitely cause acne. Acne is basically caused by three definite reasons -
Hormonal Imbalance - The sebum glands starts overworking and produces more natural oil which can lead to acne.
Toxic Buildup - A toxic buildup can occur when the organs like the liver etc which are responsible for ridding the body of the toxins fail to function properly.
Combination of the two factors mentioned above - Sebum that is produced by the gland sometimes mixes with the toxic materials and this promotes the growth of bacteria, which ultimately leads to the formation of acne.
