Protein powder is not natural no matter what people say. You do not find protein powder outside. It is man made! Get your protein from whole food is what I say!

it's probably fine. i drink it sometimes, and it has no effect on my acne, positive or negative, even when used in large quantities for long stretches of time.

people tend to blame acne on protein powder because there is a widespread belief that anything that attempts to modify the natural order must be evil. in this case, the powder is supposed to help change one's physical form, so it must be bad, and acne is seen as the natural punishment.

similar associations are made with breast implants and masturbation. it's a form of cultural mythology.
