The Acne Promoting Effects Of Milk!

32 posts in this topic

I've read scientific studies on the link between acne and dairy products. Its a damning fact that is over looked by many if you've tried everything like me from quinoderm, duac, antibiotics ah so many even went to the extremes of manuka honey c'mon putting honey on my face thats where acne will take you. Desperate attempts to clear your skin and claim your life back confidence and all.

Now i've battled with acne for so many years its depressing to think am going to battle with it any longer does anybody feel the same? Milk is apparently from the research i've been doing online is one of the main causes of acne! This is what your dermatologist or any of these corps won't tell you because a cured customer is no customer!! Do you honestly think they haven't got a cure for acne? Its a multiple billion $ a year business do you know how many businesses would go bust. I've realized these quinoderms(which am on now and my skins as dry as ash) and duacs,face washes etc are all temporary they just want you to keep buying man seriously if i stopped this quinoderm i'll break out so bad it would scare the life out of Dracula lool.

They are studies all over google pointing the finger at milk! I've cut milk out of my diet now for a month and i see positive results not incredible but its evidently working. I am purchasing this holistic approach teaching about acne like healing power of water, diet ,exercise and environment. I will post about the results as the claim is bold "if it don't work in 60 days have you money back" kinda of claim and the testimonials on there look viable loads of before and after pictures and vocal testimonies hmmm keep in touch follow me or whatever and i'll tell you how its going i wont recommend it at the moment as i haven't tried it but i'll let you know how it goes.

but let me assure u that u r not the 1st one stating milk is a culprit.

u would want to go through the 'diet and holistic living' forum to know more about what people here thinks.

Yes sugar and milk = acne

Don't forget that carbs are eventually processed into sugar by the body

Thats exactly what i am thinking Lewis i love milk i have been reading the ingredients to everything i eat and you will be shocked how much milk is in it all wow!...I sugar intake is also another big player aswell....Hmmm tag more people to these convos i wna see others who've actually got results from cutting these things out!...

I mean radically cutting out dairy is tough especially when your offered cakes. I have black tea sad.png but if its gonna clear my skin i won't ever touch milk again ive been battling acne to many years lol.

I've cut out milk and yogourt completely. i remember eating yogourt and cereal with milk everyday and I broke out bad, but I never thought of the link between dairy and acne. I would blame it only on stress related to school. If I want to eat cereal now, I use almond milk. I definitely see improvement, no more big and inflammed pimples. Just some minor, little bumps.

Is butter also something to cut out, too? I just really love to bake and butter is like the holy grail in baking.


My daily routine:

Morning : Wash face with Cetaphil Oil Control Foam Wash, moisturize with Cetaphil Oil Control Moisturizer w/ spf30

Before bedtime: Wash face with Cetaphil Oil Control Foam Wash and apply Tactuo on affected areas

Medication: 100 mg Minocycline/day

Makeup routine:

Primer: B.Kamins Corrective Mattifier

Foundation: Mary Kay Timewise Matte-wear foundation

Set: Revlon Photoready Translucent Finisher

I read that dairy causes acne because of the amount of hormones that's in it. So if you have hormonal acne then it could make it worse. It's just frustrating because milk is used in a lot of things. Pasta, cakes, biscuits, pastry on savory foods, chocolate etc.

Very frustrating !

I try and avoid white refined sugar as much as poss. But does the same apply to raw honey too ? Should I avoid that too ?

I don't believe dairy has anything to do with acne. However too much grain and sugar can elevate insulin and lead to insulin resistance in genetically prone individuals. Insulin resistance has some correlation with acne.

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!

Don't forget that carbs are eventually processed into sugar by the body

but they aint as harmful as sugar.

carbs are our necessity and should be taken in moderation.u can keep it low carb and low GI/GL.but completely restricting it is not right in my opinion.

any kind of carb that u r good with,not intolerant to SHOULD be included in ur diet.

this i am saying keeping general people in mind.

Actually milk is good for acne because it's a rich sorce of vitamin D which bolsters the immune system. Acne really isn't a hormonal problem as most people with acne have normal androgen levels. Hormones just make the skin oily and don't directly cause acne as many people with oily skin don't sufffer from acne lesions.

The inflammation in acne is caused by infection which only occurs to the degree it does because the immune system in an acne patient is inherently weaker than a clear skinned person. When someone grows out of acne it's because their immune system matures - not because their hormones balance.

I had inflammatory acne for thirteen years straight from age 11-23 and only recently grew out of it. I also grew out of my asthma and severe allergies at the same time as well so I'm definitely thinking it was all tied to me having a weaker immune system (as with any inflammatory disorder). I eat tons of dairy, cheese and grain currently and my skin is completely unblemished. Explain that?

Dairy is not a rich source of D. If you think you are getting adequate amount of D from dairy, you are very mistaken. You are getting a tiny, tiny fraction of what you need.

Get your D from the Sun as much as possible, and take supplements when it's not possible.

And no, our immune systems are not weaker either. I never get sick. That is not the difference between us and them. The differences lie in the way our cells proliferate, die off and exfoliate. There are several genetic traits that have been identified that affect that.

Also, anything that's bad for acne sufferers is bad for everyone else too. They just don't develop the symptom of acne because they don't have the genetic tendencies towards impaired cell proliferation/exfoliation.

lchance,

It is always hormonal. Except for pores clogged topically, and maybe allergic response, but there's still a correlationship between histamine and androgens.

Also, androgens are not the only hormones involved in acne. There's also insulin and IGF-1, for example.

Also, anything that's bad for acne sufferers is bad for everyone else too. They just don't develop the symptom of acne because they don't have the genetic tendencies towards impaired cell proliferation/exfoliation. Likewise, everything truly good for health is good for acne.

I also don't notice any affect from dairy, but that would because acne is a result of many things you do to yourself. It's all cumulative. Whether or not I notice any effect from dairy, it still both contains and promotes hormones directly involved in acne and cell hyperproliferation (which means it also promotes cancer cell growth. You don't want hyperproliferation happening, period).

yes,she means its hormonal in a way that other things(like diet or activity/exercise/stress/sleep etc) plays with the hormonal level.

so other things(indirect sources) come up as the cause but actually its the hormones.

one needs about 15-20 minutes(or maximum 25-30mins) of sun exposure for enough vit D for a day.that too not necessarily on the face.anywhere.

as far as i know,its enough.

enough to work the calcium intake properly in ur body.
