Does Almond Milk Cause Acne Simple Yes Or No Question ?

14 posts in this topic

No. It's rich in vitamin E. Try having yogurt/kefir also if it doesn't cause any problems.

yes! if it is sweetened then yes it will. if it is not sweetened then no it wont. the guy above is right about vitamin e but almonds also have a bad ratio of omega 3 to 6. the unsweetened one will not, the sweetened one will. i have been drinking the sweetened one for 6 months but i will not be stopping and starting the unsweetened one.

Sorry, but it's not a simple yes or no question. It's a maybe. And it depends on you and the almond milk.

You can have an intolerance to almonds. And we have had people here that do and break out when they consume them. It's not common, but it's possible. And if you do, you might want to test the stone fruit almonds are related to such as peaches, cherries, plums, etc.

So 1) read the label and get an unsweetened one without any additives or make it yourself. and 2) you'll just have to try it and make sure you don't have an intolerance to it.

[ 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!

My skin wasn't doing so well when I was drinking unsweetened almond milk daily. I switched to unsweetened flaxmilk (with omega 3s & other nutrients), but I'm not sure how much it's helped my diet. It's hard to find and a bit expensive, but it tastes great!


Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...

i dont know, i used to make my own at home and sweetened it with a but of agave. I got breakouts when i had it maybe its just my body. even packaged unsweetend almond milk caused me to breakout. It depends on your body. A lot of things cause me to breakout, mainly nuts and dairy though they r my trigggers.

Organic almond milk is fine for me :) it's all about how things are processed and what is added. The more natural, the better of course.

My skin stopped breaking out when I switched from coconut to almond milk and I drink both sweetened and unsweented. Also my headaches stopped and canker sores stopped. I don't get those symptoms as long as I stay away from coconut along with guten and dairy. Unfortuately I think it is trial and error as some people may do better with coconut than almond.

All I know is I get nauseous (and upset stomach) after having almond milk. Which is strange, since almonds don't do much to me besides tickle the back of my throat a bit. Maybe I'm slightly allergic?

I drink unsweetened almond milk without an issue. If it does cause you breakouts I have seen hemp milk now at grocery stores that you could try. Coconut milk and yogurt seemed to aggravate my acne.
