Causes of Acne - Does Salt Cause Acne
If you start to research the causes of acne, you might ask yourself "Does
Salt Cause Acne?"
Let's first start out by asking the question "What is salt?"
There are many different types of salt. Some are natural and some are
Some salt is also Iodized, and so when we are looking for patterns to see
which foods are causing the acne, your food journal and the foods you
buy need to be carefully selected.
So if we suspect that we break out after eating a lot of salt, what type of
salt did you overdose with. If the label of the food you are eating says

Anytime you heat an oil to high temperature it changes and damages the
oil. It might be the oil that is breaking you out. So why don't you do an
experiment on yourself to see if you can eliminate acne by not eating
foods that could possibly cause acne?
First, stop eating junk food because it is full of table salt. Go and buy
some un-iodized sea salt. Any time you start craving something salty

If you eat meat, cook it yourself and only put sea salt on it. If you buy a
pre-cooked chicken in the grocery store, it probably has table salt and
MSG in it.
MSG has many other names that they use to sneak it in without you
knowing it. So you suspect that salt causes acne but the thing is, is
that most salty foods probably have bad oils that are making you
