What foods cause acne?

I am a 21 year old female who has cystic acne and it may be my diet. I eat a lot of fast food with my friends. What foods cause acne?

Everyone is different and for some people, food is not associated with acne. Please keep a food journal so you can determine what the answer is for you!
Fast food causes acne for sure. Acne is the body working hard to eliminate toxins as your hormones change. By eliminating the toxins of processed foods you will help your body eliminate the toxins through waste and urine instead of through your skin.

Fatty/dairy products can stimulate some forms of acne. Visit your local dermatologist and discuss your options and diagnosis.
