If you start researching the causes of acne, you might be wondering “Does salt cause acne?”
Let’s start first by asking the question “What is salt?”
There are many different types of salt. Some are natural and some are not.
Some salt is also iodized, so when looking for patterns to see what foods are causing acne, your food diary and the foods you buy need to be carefully selected.
So if we suspect we have an outbreak after eating a lot of salt, what kind of salt did you overdose on? If the label of the food you are eating says the ingredient is “salt,” then the type of salt you were eating is “table salt.”
In my opinion, too much table salt causes acne. This is the pattern I see.
This is why I try to only consume non-iodized sea salt. Salt also causes acne or is it the type of salt. Like sea salt and pink Himalayan salt.
Also, if you notice a breakout after eating a lot of salt, think of it as a salty bag of potato chips. The salt found in most snacks is usually common table salt. Even then, if you have a breakout after eating a bag of potato chips made with sea salt, it could very well be the type of oil that the potato chip contains.
Every time you heat an oil to high temperature, it changes and damages the oil. It may be the oil that is breaking you. So why not do an experiment on yourself to see if you can get rid of acne by not eating foods that can cause acne?
First, stop eating junk food because it is full of table salt. Go buy non-iodized sea salt. Whenever you start to crave something salty, look for sea salt.
If you eat meat, cook it yourself and just add sea salt. If you buy a precooked chicken at the grocery store, it probably contains table salt and MSG.
MSG has many other names that they use to sneak in without you knowing. So you suspect that salt causes acne, but the thing is, most salty foods probably have bad oils that make them break out, or it’s table salt. Or it could be the MSG that is causing you.
The causes of acne are easily corrected. You have to get rid of the foods and substances that your body perceives as toxic. Every person on the planet has unique genetics that partially determine which foods they will be allergic to.
Also, if you can cleanse your digestive tract by eating foods that clean and displace decaying toxic food waste from inside your intestines, the toxic food and waste won’t get stuck in the body where it can be reabsorbed.
Constipation is a cause of acne. It is a very important factor. Foods like bread and cheese will indirectly cause acne because the mixture of bread and cheese causes constipation. I used to eat a lot of pizza and that’s when my acne was at its worst. This is what got me started investigating the same things that you are investigating right now.
You see, milk and dairy products are known to cause mucus and acne. Type in milk and acne in the search engine and you will find tons of people who say that milk and cheese give them acne.
Also, bread contains gluten and gluten is known to cause autism and a huge long list of symptoms.
A pizza probably has a lot of salty pepperoni as well. Most pepperoni contain a lot of table salt and saturated animal fats, nitrates, and msg.
So you are looking for the causes of acne. Does salt cause acne? I say eating too much table salt probably does. But it’s also the salt, or the salty foods you are eating may contain bad types of oils and other acne-causing ingredients even more than salt.
One last word. I totally stopped eating all the salt for a month about 7 years ago, and after about a week my skin stopped being oily and then I felt the gritty bumps start to fall off my skin, and then my skin was perfectly clean.
Salt causes your skin to retain water and makes it difficult for your body to eliminate toxins through your skin. Acne is that toxins and bad oils are flushed through the skin and become clogged.
