Every morning i have a decent amount of yoghurt on my breakfast which i have been doing for the last like 6 years. I have had mild acne for almost all of this time. I have a twin brother who has the same breakfast but without the yoghurt and he doesnt have it as badly as i do. I was wondering if i should cut out the yoghurt from my diet as i have been reading about how dairy is not to great for your skin?

Yes, you should try avoiding it. And if that doesn't make a difference, try something else.

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!

Fermented dairy is better than unfermented.  How much you should have is individual and everyone needs to be figure it out for themselves.

Sigh.  See my other response. 

 

and btw, Greek yogurt is merely yogurt with the excess whey strained out.  It's not better or safer.  The probiotics in the yogurt are what may be more beneficial.
