Even for a pimple we run to ask for help on the cell phone? Perhaps it is exaggerated, but there it is! For a few months now, you have been able to find out through an app what is good and what is bad to eat in case of acne.
This is a project carried out by the American Northwestern University, whose researchers have developed one iPhone app which, based on the results of official scientific research, indicates to users whether a food is to be considered good or bad for the skin.
From the technology to book train or movie tickets, to the technology for diet and calories, the app for meditating and the app for sport and finally for the skin: here we are in the era of the subcutaneous pre-microcip!

The app is called "Diet & acne" and can be downloaded for free from iTunes. According to data collected in the app, the appearance of acne has been associated with the consumption of dairy products, especially skim milk, whey proteins, omega 6 fatty acids and foods rich in sugars.
