Look for soy based products now. Calcium fortified, if that's what you're looking for. There are many replacements for dairy these days.
Also, throw in some flax seed into your morning cereal mix. Good fiber and source of omega EFAs.

"Soybeans are the only plant food that has all of the essential amino acids our body requires, making it a complete protein. Soy foods do not have any cholesterol, and most are high in fiber. Soy also has many vitamins, minerals, and phytochemical compounds (like isoflavones) that work together to create numerous health benefits. "
True enough that you want to avoid as many additives as you can. You can get plenty of calcium from other sources such as: broccoli, almonds, onions, and oranges. Another type of milk you might want to try, especially for protein, is almond milk. I have yet to try it myself, but I hear it's good.
I'm planning to get a soymilk maker soon myself so I can juice it myself. Dang organic is expensive!

Are you all aware it's the most genetically modified food out there? Sad, but true.
So, always buy ORGANIC.
I tend to find goats milk much better than cows milk. It is closer to mothers milk.

(2) Try lactaid or similar and see if your skin/health improves.

Gluten-free diet (for non-acne reasons, but it seems to have cleared my acne)
