Are peanut butter sandwiches your fave? Why you shouldn’t indulge if you are acne prone!

Peanuts are phyto-androgenic, meaning they mimic testosterone in the body. Ingesting them causes an increase in oil production and follicular inflammation. This is a recipe for breakouts (and also very similar to what happens in women’s bodies with premenstrual breakouts). 

Skip the peanut butter- try cashew butter or sun butter (sunflower seed) instead!
