Many heavy Diet Coke drinkers are reporting that after a week or two of cutting back on the soda their acne improved. Aspertame may be the culprit.
After visiting dozens of online forums the message was the same: “Now, after two weeks of drinking water I’ve gone almost a whole week without acne.”
Another reason that too much Diet Coke or any diet soda for that matter may cause acne is because the individual is not drinking enough water. Water is critical to any healthy skin care diet and without enough water our pores clog, collagen wanes, and our skin will flake. Regardless of how much soda you drink, be sure to consume plenty of water every day.
Research has proven that aspertame can cause things as serious as lupus and brain tumors. Aspertame is a series of chemicals that react in the brain. For most people there is no negative effect, but in many others the reactions can include memory loss, the sensation of a burning tongue, difficulty with weight loss, and other bazaar and deadly conditions. If acne prevention isn’t enough, let the other very serious conditions help you reconsider the amount of diet soda you drink.
