But yet, I know quite a few people with unhealthy, lacking in nutrients diets with clear skin (but still get acne from time to time). Of course they may be more intolerant to triggers, but I wonder if some are just as intolerant to milk as I am but they just don't drink it.
People who eat like "crap" are just not getting the nutrients and hormones needed to get acne.
So in a way, people's ideas of "healthy" may be a double-edged sword; you actually may be giving your body the nutrients it needs to give you acne.
No doubt, I would rather be healthy and not break out than unhealthy. But I think it's fully possible to be acne prone and have an "unhealthy" diet and not break out.
My friend eats McDonalds quite a bit and has huge meals that are full of fats and carbohydrates. But he doesn't drink milk. He's generally undernourished but I realize this is one component of his diet that is severely lacking. And he has clear skin! Sometimes he breaks out so he is prone.
I would just love to serve him 3 glasses of skim milk a day and see what happens!
