    First of all let me put out this disclaimer: I am not a medical doctor, dermatologist, scientist or any type of researcher. I am simply a person who suffers with adult acne. And through a totally unscientific, unplanned
    experiment I came to the conclusion that peanuts can cause acne.

    All my life I have heard medical professionals dispute the fact that certain foods can trigger acne. I never knew if I should believe these professionals, or go with my gut feeling that certain foods were triggering my acne.

    When I turned forty, I was determined to stop this cycle of acne. I had tried every acne treatment and beauty product with minimal success. I was tired of the psychological damage my acne was having on my life. So I went to see an esthetician and started monthly chemical peels.

    These peels are expensive, and it took a few months to see improvements, but for the first time since childhood my pimples were under control.

    But then my husband came home with a bag of peanuts. I hadn't had peanuts in the shell for a long time. They looked absolutely irresistible!

    For about a week I snacked on these peanuts. I had them in-between meals as a quick snack, and I also sat down with a bowl full of peanuts each night as I watched TV. After all, peanuts are a healthy snack, right?

    The following week my face started to feel differently. When I looked in the mirror I could see the oil starting to accumulate on my nose. Then the dreaded pimples started to emerge. By the end of the week I was suffering from a full-blown acne attack.

    I had forgotten what it was like to have my face hurt from acne. I had forgotten how humiliating it was to be seen in public when acne had taken over my face. I knew people were wondering, "What happened to her face?"

    It was then that it dawned on me. It had to be the peanuts. All of my acne symptoms started after eating peanuts on a daily basis.

    So I immediately quit eating the peanuts. I was no longer tempted to grab a few peanuts in-between meals or have them as an after-dinner snack.
