Gluten Consumption and Acne

"For people who connect their gluten consumption with a range of complaints that are often dismissed by their doctors, this comes as welcome news. But how does this tie in to acne?

More investigation is needed on gluten sensitivity's direct impact on the skin, but the connection between the gut and skin has been studied extensively."
