NutriJuice Max: The Acne Fighter

Updated: May 28, 2020


Acne is a general term often used to indicate acne vulgaris, which is a chronic inflammatory disease of the sebaceous gland and hair follicles of the skin. It is characterized by blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. Chronic acne can result in scarring. A contributing factor may be diet, as evidenced in studies of Eskimos and other cultures that first experienced acne after adopting the Western diet. Some acne is caused cause by a condition known as “skin hypoglycemia” or “skin diabetes.” This means that the skin (which is an organ) is intolerant to sugars.
