Dietary habits — particularly fats and carbs — were associated with risk of acne in adults, a French study found.

Looking at daily dietary records of nearly 25,000 individuals, consumption of one portion of fatty and sugary food per day was tied to a 54% higher odds of currently suffering from acne (adjusted odds ratio 1.54, 95% CI 1.09-2.16), Laetitia Penso, MSc, of the University of Paris in France, and colleagues reported in JAMA Dermatology.
