i love to eat peanuts! however, i try to control my peanut intake because my friends say that they have an effect on the acne cells. you see, i have kind of noticed it myself. whenever i eat too much peanuts, i tend to have acne break outs. is this true? or is this just a myth?

Hello Jlara, I think eating peanuts is not the only cause of breakouts/pimples. Things to consider for this problem is hormones, stress, bacteria,skin oils or clogged skin pores. Although Peanut has oil, you also need to consider everything that you eat. If your eating healthy then i think this can be avoided and another thing sweat things out, Exercise has many benefits not just clearer skin but a healthy body for life..

yes, i know there are other factors which can cause pimples but in my case, since peanuts is one of my favorite food, i tend to think that they are the culprit because everytime i binge out in peanuts, i get acne breakouts. :P lolz. :) well, maybe i will also try to do some sweating stuffs, so that the toxins and other bad stuffs will go out through my sweat. thanks for your advice. :)

Well, there is always a saying that eating or too much of everything is bad. i think you should cut down on eating too much peanuts. it may not trigger pimples but in some ways, it might trigger the increase of uric acid and can cause gouty arthritis in the near future. likewise, i know peanuts are rich in fats , that is why you should cut down on it. Elevated fats in our system may cause future cardiovascular diseases..so eat or do everything in moderation.. hope this would help.. goodluck!

Hello jlara_gtr34 I think not all people will have the same effect, depend on your hormone and your skin type. A lot of thing will caused pimples. I love peanuts and all other nuts, but I never have pimples from that. God bless you. *angel www.beautycosmetictips.com

It has not really been proven yet that roasted peanuts cause acne or pimples. Many people wonder what the active cause for acne to occur on an individual really is a result from and some folks even attribute it to roasted peanuts. The truth is acne and blackheads can be caused from a variety of reasons. Your diet is really just one small piece of the acne causing problems. Other factors include exercise, cosmetics, diet, hormones, hygiene, medications, shaving and stress. Source : http://ezinearticles.com/?Do-Roasted-Peanuts-Cause-Acne? &id=48090

I have never really heard this before, and it sounds like just another "acne myth" to me. Just because peanuts have oil in them does not mean they are going to cause pimples to break out. cheers,

Unfortunately it is true. Anythng that's oily causes pimples. I have some trouble with that too, not specifically with peanuts, but with any oily food. And it sucks big time, 'cause I love this type of greasy junky disgusting meals! :D
