Study title and authors:
The effect of a low glycemic load diet on acne vulgaris and the fatty acid composition of skin surface triglycerides.
This study can be accessed at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18178063
The authors looked at the effect of low-glycemic-load diets on acne risk.
They found that subjects on the low-glycemic diet had a lower amount of mono-unsaturated fatty acids and a higher amount of saturated fatty acids in the oil on their skin, than did the subjects eating the high-glycemic diet, and therefore their skin produced less oil, and they had less acne lesions.
