If I could only give up caffeine!

If I could only give up caffeine

I have be drinking caffeine since I was a teenage. Oddly enough, that is when my acne started! I have always wondered if caffeinated coffee and my acne were linked.

I really want to try to stop drinking caffeine. I also have to stop smoking. I am sure my complexion and rosacea would improve if I gave up these two vices.

Has anyone here seen improvements in their complexion by giving up caffeine and nicotine?

Thanks

I heard that caffine can irritate acne. I know when I used to drink soda it made me break out. I blame all the sugar and the insulin spike for that, but caffine could have played a part too.

I definitely notice a difference in my complexion when I am not drinking coffee. I don't drink it regularly anymore, but occassionally I'll have some. If I do it two days in a row, my skin shows it. Same thing with alcohol.

I am thinking about replacing caffeine with green tea. I wonder if green tea is good for the skin? I'm sure it can't hurt. My boss is a health nut and drinks green tea during work. I should talk to him and find out where he gets it and how he prepares it.

Yes I notice when I drink alot of pop that my face does break out. Now if i want pop then i make sure i also drink alot of water to make up for it. I used to smoke and I havent noticed anything different from quitting on my skin!

My face goes red when I drink a lot of coffee- quite red actually.

If I mix in one or more cups of cold water between cups of coffee it seems to help though. It seems to be just blushing from the hot liquid mostly in my case. YMMV.
