I was told that Kefir is good for the skin and helps clearing the skin of acne by building natural bacteria or something of that sort. Dairy makes me breakout isn't Kefir dairy? I was told Kefir does not affect the skin as dairy does.Can someone offter their thoughts or what they know about this Kefir stuff?

I always though kefir was fine when all other dairy was a problem, but that turned out not to be the case. So if dairy breaks you out, I'd say stay away, but you never know. You'd have to try it yourself to see.

Ive always been too chicken shit to try Kefir because dairy also causes acne for me. Since my skin is 100% diet related and I recover from episodes of bad diet relapses for about 2 weeks im very weary.

I ran into a guy I knew from school. Who had severe acne at the age of 26. When I saw him a few weeks ago his skin was clear and looked wonderful. He went to Switzerland for a month and was told by a naturopath there to drink organic kefir which he started to so on his trip. He says his skin started to clear up within a week. But like I said I have no personal experience with it. How about someone else try it??lol

Heres some copy and pasted Kefir info:

Easily digested, it cleanses the intestines, provides beneficial bacteria and yeast, vitamins and minerals, and complete proteins. Because kefir is such a balanced and nourishing food, it contributes to a healthy immune system and has been used to help patients suffering from AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, herpes, and cancer. Its tranquilizing effect on the nervous system has benefited many who suffer from sleep disorders, depression, and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).

The regular use of kefir can help relieve all intestinal disorders, promote bowel movement, reduce flatulence and create a healthier digestive system. In addition, its cleansing effect on the whole body helps to establish a balanced inner ecosystem for optimum health and longevity.

Kefir can also help eliminate unhealthy food cravings by making the body more nourished and balanced. Its excellent nutritional content offers healing and health-maintenance benefits to people in every type of condition.

Ive been drinking 1 litre of Kefir (milk) a day for the past two weeks, (the milk part) is not good for my skin. Still going to drink it though, just bought a load of milk and i aint throwing it away.
