Research has revealed that a healthy, balanced diet can help to promote good skin, but foods with a high glycaemic index (GI) should be avoided by people suffering from acne.

Acne is a very common skin condition during puberty, but some people find that the problem persists through their late 20s and even into their 30s.

According to Nina Goad, a spokeswoman for the British Association of Dermatologists, certain lifestyle factors can contribute to the problem.

'Recent research suggests that foods with a high glycaemic index (GI) may aggravate acne. A balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and limited processed foods will help to support the body in general, including the skin,' she revealed.

Another lifestyle factor that triggers acne is smoking, according to Ms Goad, who noted that scientists have recently identified a new skin disorder known as 'smoker's acne'.

Commenting on the recent research, she revealed: 'Smokers who had suffered acne in their teens were found to be four times more likely to suffer acne as an adult than non-smokers who also had experienced teenage acne.'
