Red Bull stops spots?!?!

Ok... so a friend of mine says he thinks that red bull stop you getting spots. He believes that drinking red bull increases you metabolic rate meaning your body breaks down spot causing impuraties quickly meaning you get less spots.

Well... he normaly has a can a day and i have to say for a 16yr old boy he has perfect skin!

Im going to give it a go and have one or two cans a day after meals or snaks for the next few days and tell you if i see any effects!

maybe its nonsense... who knows?

Re: Red Bull stops spots?!?!

isn't red bull loaded with sugar and caffeine? both of those will probably cause break outs if you're prone to acne.

I donít see how it could help your skin. His reasoning is WAY off, and if anything itís going to make your acne worse. If you try it though, keep us posted on how it goes.

Not only does his reasoning make no sense, but I don't see how Red Bull helps your acne. All it is is caffeine and sugar.

Re: Red Bull stops spots?!?!

It can make you feel good, and stress is a large part of the problem. This is why chocolate, masturbation, sugar etc can be seen in both lights. They make you feel good, less stressed however can also lead to acne irritation. Its different for everyone. Maybe the sugar and caffeine wont break you out! I for one know that caffeine isnt the cause of mine, thank god...i love my coffee

Re: Red Bull stops spots?!?!

You'll get a temporary high because of the insane ammount of sugar, caffeine and other poisons you find in the drink, and that's pretty much it.

I don't see how it could help acne at all. On the other hand, i see plenty of reasons why it could seriously aggravate your acne.

Re: Red Bull stops spots?!?!

Though there is now sugar free Red Bull...not that I'm validating this in any way as a cure.

Re: Red Bull stops spots?!?!

The rumor probably started becasue of the B12, B6, and B5 vitamins that are in it.
