Typically in processed foods or dining out, you are probably consuming table salt and maybe a lot of it. Here is a brief description of what is contained in that salt. Yes, they add minute amounts but think about how much we might consume over our life span. Cutting way back on table salt I know can improve skin flare-ups. Not sure what the culprit is, possibly fructose they don’t disclose, or other additives. Knowing what I know now, I eat Pink Himalayan Salt and I’m not shy about it. I suggest looking all this up for yourself, it helped me stop consuming it.
Table is salt mixed with a minute amount of:
– Potassium Iodide: Is a chemical compound, medication, and dietary supplement.
– Sodium Iodide (Chemical formula NaI) is an ionic compound formed from the chemical reaction of sodium metal and iodine.
– Sodium Iodate (NaIO3) is an oxidizing agent, and as such it can cause fires upon contact with combustible materials or reducing agents.
– Dextrose (sugar) may also be added to stabilize the iodine.
Iodides, potassium iodides, sodium iodides, sodium iodate can all aggravate Acne. Please reduce these ingredients as much as you can by shopping the outside of the grocery stores. Any food coming in a box, a bag, a can, or processed food will have these ingredients. Restaurant food will have this kind of salt also. I know it hard to avoid this kind of salt but clearing your acne is important.
