Peanut butter is yet another one of my favorite foods, yet it also causes acne for a lot of people. This can be for a variety of reasons, depending on your personal situation. For some, the natural oils and fats can clog pores and lead to breakouts. For other people, it can be as simple as the natural allergens in peanuts that promote inflammation, gout and acne in sensitive individuals. Whatever the case, it doesn’t mean you have to give up all nut butters. Try using sunbutter, which tastes almost exactly like peanut butter, and is made from roasted sunflower seeds that actually clear acne due to their Vitamin E content. I also love raw almond butter, which is also rich in Vitamin E, protein and contains more fiber and less saturated fat than peanut butter.
