London: Eating foods with a high glycaemic index (GI) like white rice and drinking milk not only aggravates acne but in some cases triggers it too, a landmark overview of study carried out over 50 years claims. The painful skin condition affects millions of teens - and increasingly adults - causing their skin to develop unsightly spots on the face, neck, chest and back. Caused by a combination of the skin producing too much sebum and a build-up of dead cells which clogs the pores, acne cause a localised infection or spot and can lead to anxiety, low self-esteem and depression, the `Daily Mail` reported. Since the late 19th century, researchers have linked diet to acne, with chocolate, sugar and fat singled out as the main culprits. However, studies carried out from the 1960s onwards have disassociated diet from the development of the condition.
