Has anyone noticed a difference in their skin due to dropping dairy from your diet? I feel like my inflammation has gone down; just want to see if anyone else' has?

i removed dairy for 3 weeks as a trial, during that time my skin still sucked (i have inflammed hormonal acne on my chin) so this week i am eating dairy to see if my skin gets worse.

The only dairy I consume is cheese.

I've tried cutting both white flour and dairy out of my diet, and it had absolutely NO effect on my acne.

Yes, many people. I notice little difference but as there are so many ways it affects the factors that lead to acne, I limit it. Especially un fermented dairy. You should in particular avoid the pasteurized unfermented dairy from grain fed cows. In other words, the typical milk in the typical American supermarket. Cow is more problematic than from goat and other animals. Fermented is better than un fermented. Pastured is better than grain fed. Etc.
Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

If constipation is an issue cutting out dairy should help.

Doesn't affect me to be honest. Gluten was a big factor of mine. Cutting that out made big improvements

its so different for everyone that its definitely worth a shot!

im not sure how long you have to remove it to see a different but ive read a few things that saw complete removal for 3-4 weeks then you can add it back in and see if its a trigger.

Cutting out dairy made a BIG difference for me, I went from 8 to 10 major cysts especially on my back and chest at a time, to 1 to 2. That's at least a 75% improvement which I'd say is significant. You just need to try it and be patient
