Anyone Else Find Vegan/ Vegetarian Help Acne?



I recently became a vegetarian, oh, about 2 months ago..never really was a big meat eater bc of environmental reasons, but thinking about going towards vegan. I already cut out drinking milk but I still eat yogurt and cottage chz..can't seem to cut that out but I'm wondering if that could be one reason why I'm breaking out..idk any experiences?

It might be because of added hormones in meat and dairy. Make sure the yogurt and cheese is organic. And hormone free. A lot of people find that when they eat hormone added meat and dairy products it throws off their hormones and makes them breakout.

Hi there! I have been on a vegan diet for over 6 months, I was a vegeterian for 11 years. I can honestly say that my acne has worsened over the years.

But that can be because I don't use antibiotic lotions anymore, because of the side effects.

the vegan diet has made absolutely no difference. I continue to be a vegan and eat healthy because I also love animals and the planet, but it's a mystery why my skin hasn't improved at all:-(

I am on day 8 of accutane, I always told myself I could get rid of acne naturally, that's why I'm 39 and still have acne, but hopefully I can beat it this time.

But congratulations on becoming a vegan!
