  1. Hey, I generally have very mild acne but for last few months have been taking protein shakes for energy before gym and to gain weight after. Started with whey protein and had the worst breakout since I was a teenager... (I'm now 27). So I let that clear and tried Soy, same breakout in and around my jawline. Then rice protein... and now most recently I've tried hemp and it's not as bad but still causing large cystic acne beside my nose. I've heard whey can be bad because of the link to dair
  2. I'm writing this post so that I can keep track of my progress and begin my attempt on the caveman regimen. I've never had acne my entire life. I'm 19 and I never struggled with acne ever, I would get compliments constantly on my effortless, flawless skin constantly. In February of this year I had my first ever break out and freaked the hell out, I didn't understand what was going on... When I look back now I actually only got my first ever pimple, it was so tiny and completely unnoticeable but i
  3. Can Protein Shakes Cause Acne?

    The following image presents ways that protein shakes might contribute to acne. They keyword here is "might," because none of these things are proven. Generally speaking, all things in moderation is a good rule of thumb. If you are breaking out and have recently started drinking lots of protein shakes, you may want to cut back a bit. But don't stress out about it too much. Athletes following an intense gym schedule, especially those who are...
  4. I've noticed that my skin reacts by breaking out whenever I've been taking whey protein/mass gainer supplements for awhile so I've cut that out. Tried to replace my post workout nutrition with soy milk but have noticed very small breakouts too. Anyone else here who works out/bodybuild can point me in the direction of other easy to consume protein sources that are less likely to cause breakouts?
  5. Hi everybody! Dairy causes acne for me because of the IGF-1 growth hormone and thus hyperkeratinization (cell division and thus clogging of pores). Does anybody can tell me if dairy counteracts my bodybuilding goals to gain lean mass? In the last year by bulking I have gained 8 kilos on a dairy diet. Body fat ~12%-17%. By my understanding dairy causes raises IGF-1 growth hormone which is good for bodybuilding. It also causes cell division and DHT raise - is it also good? I have read th
  6. Hey guys, before I had acne I used to hit the gym almost everyday, and take shakes (phD Whey Protein) everyday. I used to drink a lot of milk just generally - I love cold milk I have no idea why - and I would mix it with my protein powder. My diet wasn't very 'acne-friendly', I would eat a lot of eggs and chicken (hormones everywhere ) and the whey which I consumed had IGF-1 (which correlates with sebum production) so as soon as my acne got worse I had to stop eating those foods in excess and
  7. So basically i bought some whey protein and it broke me out within 2 hours. It was quality stuff, no additives and even organic. I'm certain its because it has such a massive insulin response, so i was wondering if anyone has discovered a way to avoid this? Or could someone tell me their experiences with egg protein? Thanks
  8. Hi everyone, I just started a 6-8 month course of accutane and I am on day 5 right now. I am an active person and I lift weights so I need protein on a daily basis. I just purchased the PhD Body Scultp range, Diet whey and I was wondering if anyone knows if it is okay to drink whey protein while being on accutane . The ingredients are: whey protein concentrate (27%), milk protein concentrate (26% of which 56% is micellar casein), soya protein isolate, cocoa powder, waxy barley starch,
  9. Hey everyone I will try to keep my sob story as short as possible, but basically when I was in high school I had pretty bad acne on my forehead. (and always JUST my forehead?) A couple treatments of minocycline seemed to take care of it and I haven't really had it since spring of my senior year which was in 2011, aside from the occasional stress-related breakouts. All of a sudden early last month it flared up again looking like it did back in highschool on my forehead and I came to the conclusio
  10. I purchased a whey protein powder for bodybuilding and mass gain. Before, I used a different brand and I had mild to sometimes, no acne. After I purchased a different brand, once or twice, I would breakout in small acne (jaw and cheeks) for about 3-4 days before it calmed down. And the breakout came again 4 days ago when I consumed the shake late at night. Do you think there is any ingredient here that might be causing this? I was thinking it was the B6. http://precisionsupplements.ca/wp-conten
