Does caffeine affect your acne?

Recommended Posts

What kind of caffeine.. soda? Coffee?

I strongly believe that soda does, and I've tried stopping, but it's so addicting. I know that clear soda is better because they add tons of dye to make the dark soda dark, so I'd suggest at least drinking the clear if you can't stop..

I don't really do soda, it's more coffee. Thanks!

For me, i drink diet coke every once in a while and it really doesnt affect my acne. But I think if i were to drink alot of it, it may give me some minor pimples.

Diet Coke

Per 12oz can: 46.5mg caffeine

Diet Coke has significantly more caffeine in it than regular coke (34.5mg).

I think it's more of acidity issue and things like that? I'm not sure though, you'd have to do way more research. I drink a cup of coffee a day though and I have mild-moderate acne... but my skin's clearing up a fair amount so I don't think it's too bad in moderation. I remember reading on other 'acne diet' sites it's fine for 1-2 cups a day with no sweeteners (worse than the caffeine)
