Alright so after reading up a lot on the diet section here, I decided to quit dairy about 5 days ago. I noticed something. Dairy is in EVERYTHING. Ranch dressing, cheese, butter, ice cream. I never noticed how much dairy i've been ingesting all along.
My skin is looking great by the way, but that may be from the supplements I've been taking (Vitamin A, Sesamin, Saw Palmetto...) and the antibiotic I started a few weeks ago.
Back to the point, is anyone else having trouble stopping dairy?
Well, I don't avoid dairy completely, but I also don't buy or consume junk like ranch dressing, and rarely have ice cream (in which the sugar does more harm than the dairy).
It is amazing to me how so many people have no idea what they are eating that they are surprised that ice cream, cheese & butter are dairy. And think that eggs are dairy. It's crazy how disconnected people have become from food.
Is there any actual link to dairy and acne? I drink 2 cups of milk a day and it doesn't seem to worsen my acne.
Yes. There are many links between dairy and acne.
And have you tried avoiding it? I had no idea that my diet affected my acne until I changed it and my skin cleared.
