Ok, so I’ve been on the diet for about 4 months, and not only do I feel great, but my skin is looking amazing. Is this just a coincidence, or is it from the diet?
Congrats! You are experiencing one of the awesome side effects of the Keto Diet! Acne is caused by inflammation in the skin, and production of skin cells, sebum, and androgens. Since your diet lowers your insulin levels, and has proven anti-inflammatory effects, it has a positive effect on your skin health by cutting down production and inflammation! There are a bunch of studies that have been done which show the Keto Diet decreases inflammation and improves skin conditions. More studies need to be done for fully conclusive evidence, but I’m liking the trend here!
