New Study at the 28th EADV Congress Reveals That Daily Consumption of Sweets, Cakes and Unhealthy Foods Are Associated With Acne

MADRID, Oct. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Poor dietary habits, increased stress and harsh skincare routines are among the most significant factors associated with acne, a new study has found.

The research presented today at the 28th EADV Congress in Madrid, evaluated the exposure to different worsening factors on acne in more than 6,700 participants across six countries in North America, South America and Europe. It is the first research of its kind, analysing both external and internal factors that can influence acne.

The results of the study showed that significantly more individuals with acne (48.2%) consume dairy products on a daily basis compared to individuals who did not (38.8%). The difference was also statistically significant for soda juices or syrups (35.6% vs 31%), pastries and chocolate (37% vs 27.8%) and sweets (29.7% vs 19.1%). Surprisingly 11% of acne sufferers consume whey proteins versus 7% without acne, and 11.9% of acne sufferers consume anabolic steroids versus 3.2% without acne.

Commenting on the findings, lead researcher Professor Brigitte Dréno conducting the research on behalf of Vichy Laboratories states: "Acne is one of the most common reasons why people with skin issues contact a dermatologist. Its severity and response to treatment may be influenced by internal and external factors, which we call the exposome. For the first time, this study allows us to identify the most important exposome factors relating to acne from patient questioning prior to any treatment prescription."

Exposure to pollution or to stress were also more frequently observed in participants with acne compared to control participants. The research also found that harsh skincare practices were more common in acne sufferers.

Acne is estimated to affect one in 10 people globally, making it the eighth most prevalent disease worldwide. It has been recently reported that acne affects also up to 40% of adult females.

Due to its visible nature, acne has a significant psychological impact on patient's quality of life and self-esteem. Looking to the future, Professor Dréno adds, "Understanding, identifying and reducing the impact of exposome is important for an adequate acne disease management as it may impact on the course and severity of acne as well as on treatment efficacy."
