Big mistake asking help for that in here. The answer that you get in here is stop using all dairy and stop doing anything physical!

there could be many things leading to the breakout....if you've always worked out without problems, then keep working out

if you just started new supplements and then contain dairy, then stop them

keep a journal of what you eat, topicals you use, physical activity, mood, etc...and keep track of lesions

you don't have to avoid everything, just your triggers, but it takes work to figure out what your triggers are....hopefully it is that easy for you and you can avoid dairy, and do everything else you do and stay clear

they are your triggers, and you are unique....everyone else here can share theirs but at the end of the day, you need to figure out YOURS- good luck to you!

So Quit eating it then.


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!

If you got acne right after beginning to eat dairy, the most logical course of action would be to discontinue eating dairy. Dairy is one of the more common acne triggers, so I tell most people to avoid it.

Suffered from acne as a young adult that went into remission when put on hormonal birth control. Went off the HBC around age 22 and the acne returned with a vengeance (along with a host of other hormonal complaints). 100% clear with a modified diet that excludes dairy, sugars, grains, citrus and cured meats and emphasizes whole food-based nutrition from both plant and animal sources, most notably organ meats like liver and juiced whole vegetables. I have included a recipe for the most helpful juice I have come up with for skin complaints. I drink it every day, and it is invaluable for acne due to the large amounts of vitamin A (carotenoids) from both the carrots and beets. It also helps improve your coloring if you are very fair, giving you a pinkish, more radiant look (not orange. Don't worry!).

Magic Juice

In a juicer, combine:

5-6 carrots

1 medium beet

2-3 stalks of celery

1 small apple (Green is preferred. Omit if you are very sugar-sensitive)

1 small (1inch) piece of ginger (optional, but good for digestion)

This makes a variable amount of juice depending on the size of the vegetables you use.

Drink this throughout the morning until it's gone. Store in the fridge not longer than one day.

Having perfectly clear skin on my wedding day was worth all the headache and effort of figuring out how diet affects acne!

The problem with trying to find out "acne-causing" foods is that it's easy to fall into the correlation = causation line of thinking.

What other high calorie foods are available to you?

back in highschool when i lifted weights i reached a plateau (i could not gain muscle no matter what i did). so i started taking specific supplements, proteins, aminoacids, ..but with almost no effect. a couple of months later my grandfather sacrificed the pig and had half a pig as my share. lol. that winter i gained muscle like crazy.


today Putin is trying to steal our land! and no, i'm not referring to Crimea, but to a part of Moldova!

High-calorie foods that don't cause acne: fats, meats

FAT FAT FAT FAT

if you're weight training, eat as much fat as you want.

I agree, fat is awesome! I eat 110 grams of fat every day, coconut oil, olive oil, fish oil, evening primrose oil and three whole eggs every day. I just added coconut oil to my diet because it's great for candida too, coconut oil is my new love, yam yam!

Seriously I find that dairy products didn't change anything for me. I've been training for about 4 years and I have never had acne and I was consuming a lot of dairy products. It all started 4 months ago ( for no reason?!). I now have severe cystic acne and I tried to stop eating dairies for a couple of weeks, nothing changed. Good luck my friend! :)

I heard and believe that exercise is a good thing for acne. It helps blood circulation which of course helps your skin:) Dairy gave me a hard time with acne so I stopped it. It was hard for me since there are so many delicious dairy foods! But I would much rather have clear skin. And when I did stop, I saw a difference. Everyone's different though (I hate to hear that) but its true. You have probably figured out what to do by now but I still wish you luck :)

You could just try eliminating dairy for a month or more and see if there is any change in your skin and then you would know.

My daughter is an athlete and she gave up dairy and it made quite a difference in her skin. She still makes protein drinks using almond milk, rice milk, or coconut milk. She uses a protein powder that is made from egg whites (no dairy or whey) which comes in vanilla or chocolate and is very delicious. And along with fruit you can add good fats like avocado or walnuts. Also try adding more protein to your meals in the form of meat and fish (salmon is full of omegas and good stuff for your skin).

Good luck.
