Soo-Jin Park, Hyo-Joon Kim, Gae-Sook Kim, Shin-Ok Kang
This study is targeted for men in their 20 s and 30 s to figure out the differences and correlations between eating habits and skin care knowledge of men with acne and men with normal skin, and suggest the right knowledge and the right skin care in regards to eating habits in order to help them maintain and improve their skin health. This study distributed 350 questionnaires randomly to men in their 20 s and 30 s, in Gwangjin-Gu, Seoul and used 309 as the final analysis of the research, excluding 41 incomplete surveys. Data analysis was done by utilizing a statistical package program, SPSSWIN ver. 18.0, including frequency analysis, item internal consistency reliability (Chronbach’s α), factor analysis, ANOVA, and t- test. The result of this study showed that difference of eating habits and nutritional quality of men with acne and normal skin has proven to be statistically effective in terms of the average difference based on eating habits (vitamin & protein, dietary), and it showed that average difference is not statistically effective in eating habit (sodium). Second, it appeared that the average difference for current skin care behavior between two groups is statistically effective, and normal skin care group has higher skin care management scores. Third, the analysis that is aimed to figure out whether eating habit (Sodium, vitamin & protein, dietary) has positive effect on skin condition showed that eating habit (hazardous effect) has positive effect on the skin condition, and reducing hazardous factors such as (sugar, junk food, flour, fat) contributes to improvement of skin condition. Fourth, it appeared that skin care management behavior does not have positive effect on skin condition. Fifth, the analysis that is aimed to figure out whether eating (Sodium, vitamin & protein, dietary) factor has positive effect on skin condition showed eating habit (dietary) factor has positive effect on skin care management behavior, and a person with high dietary scores also has higher skin care management scores. Sixth, for the improvement of skin health for adult male acne, we have provided proper eating-food reference table as the utizliation of beauty salon customer management program in order to increase sales in beauty industry. Since the study shows that as people improve dietary and skin care management, it can contribute to positive effect in acne, the relationship of dietary, skin management, and skin condition is a crucial factor to acne. Limitation of this study was that since age and residence of survey participants were not evenly distributed, studies were not sufficient enough to generalize the result. In the future, we will select and analyze participants with more even ages and residence, and conduct survey by performing comparative studies about characteristics of acne triggering causes and specifically presenting a scheme for prevention and mitigation of acne.
