Dairy & Acne. Timeframe?

7 posts in this topic

How long after cutting out dairy from your diet would you see improvement in your skin?

I am asking because I have made a few changes over the last few weeks. Like the cleanser I am using and the makeup I am wearing etc. Though the most recent change was cutting out dairy but its only been a week and I am seeing a big improvement. Though I'm not sure if it is actually cutting out dairy that is the reason for improvement. I'm not sure if its possible for a change to happen so fast?

I consumed no dairy whatsoever my freshman year in college and that was when my acne was at its absolute worst.

It depends if dairy is one of your main sources of sugar, and how well you digest it.

If it's an allergy for you, you will probably see improvements soon. But you may have other allergies that are still breaking you out, or you may be breaking out for other reasons, so it's difficult to tell. It takes some serious controlled experimentation to figure this stuff out.


Current Skin-Care Regimen (A work in progress):

Morning:

Gentle wash with DKR cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil (The lotion alone wasn't hydrating enough)

Skin 79 Korean BB Cream (excellent stuff)

Evening:

Gentle Wash with DKR Cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil
