Answer

In cases of acne vulgaris, there may be a correlation between foods with a high glycemic index and development of acne. Consumption of a diet with low glycemic index foods may be reasonable if the patient feels that diet is aggravating the condition. In addition, avoidance of dairy, including skim milk, is recommended, as it may reduce the number of skin lesions. [27]
