Have Not Drunk Milk In Years, Starting To See If I Get Acne.

19 posts in this topic

I have not drunk milk in years.

I have moderate to severe acne.

I'm gonna try to drink at least 1 liter of milk pr day to see if my acne increase.

How long should it take for milk to give me acne (if it gives me acne that is)? 2 weeks?

Started drinking a couple of days ago, and i have a few new hard red lumps, but that may be my usual's arriving. Lets see how this goes..

Extra factors:

- I stopped eating zinc a week ago. Started to eat it again today. (zinc dries my skin and stops acne from forming for me). - Should be a week before I react to the zinc again.

- I ate fried food yesterday and today. (It may be a big factor for me..).

- Im starting Accutane soon.

CONCLUSION:

Bottom line is that my acne stayed about the same. I actually got more of an cyst-feel over my acne, but I'm pretty sure this is due to me forgetting to eat fish oil for a week, which have an effect on my skin.

More time would be needed to be sure, but I'm going on Accutane today, so its impossible to know from now on..

Didn't drink milk for 6 yrs, acne almost clear, I decided to add ~ 1 L of raw milk a day (for bulking).

week one nothing happened

end of week two - worst (and first) breakout in 2 yrs, back to moderate/severe type pimples

Took a few weeks to quench the breakout and a few months to heal.

Not worth it.

It was 10x worse when I took 10 raw eggs / day.

Anyone know what the science behind milk causing breakouts is? I'd be curious to find out. I stopped drinking milk just because I'm not into the taste anymore but come to think about it, my acne has been better since I stopped :/

A lot of articles these days seem to point out that dairy is a contributory factor to acne as some people have experimented with it and saw their acne breakouts went down when they stopped dairy. Unfortunately, I was not one of them. I tested if my skin reacted to me switching to goats milk and then soya. No difference for me. I then stopped all milk alternatives, and unfortunately still no difference.

Milk definitely IS a cause... but its also a combination of other things.

Think of it as a blocked pipe: the first thing to do is stop putting things down sink that cause blockages (milk).

But that isn't enough. You also need to unblock the pipe with some sort of cleaning fluid. In my case, 1 FULL POT OF BLACK TEA EVERYDAY!

I've been virtually acne-free for 6 months on this diet!

It's supposed to up your testosterone (in most people) and cause inflammation in people sensitive to lactose

Not everyone is allergic to dairy. It might not be what you are sensitive to. It could be other things, like gluten, sugar, etc.

Are you sure it's the tea, or just the extra water? I mean, black tea has caffiene, which is bad for skin...

Knock on wood, but I believe I came to the conclusion that dairy does not give me acne. I eat cereal every morning, and enjoy a cup of milk at night. On top of this I eat an activia yogurt every morning. Everybody is different, for me eating oatmeal gave me acne, really badly. I love the stuff, but I can give it up.

I haven't drunk animal milk or eaten animal milk products in 4 or 5 years. I get a MAJOR reaction to animal milk.

How long does it usually take for your skin to react to it?

Milk is not even human food. It's Baby Calf food. Plus they add hormones and bacteria. Go whole-food high raw vegan and I'm sure your acne will improve.
