Gave up ALL dairy... acne finally gone!
I used to think diet had nothing to do with acne. I've changed my mind.
I've had moderate acne basically since age 10 (I'm 20 now). Three weeks ago I decided to cut out ALL dairy from my diet. Everything. I've never been a milk drinker (don't like the taste) but I always ate a lot of cheese, yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, etc. A few times in the past, I've cut out cheese because some people say that makes them break out, but it didn't help me very much.
Anyway. I also started checking ingredients and avoiding EVERYTHING with any dairy. This was really hard, because a lot of stuff (even soy cheese!) has dairy hidden in there.
After one week, JUST one week, my skin was almost completely clear. By the second week I didn't have a single spot left. This is the first time in 10 years my face has been so clear!!!
Just to test, I tried eating a little bit of yogurt after 2 weeks. The next two days, my skin was breaking out again. I haven't had any dairy since then, and my acne is clearing up again.
Just thought I'd share this in case it helps anyone. I think everyone's body is different, but I realize now that MY acne is directly related to food, and I bet there are plenty of other people out there who break out from what they eat. Just a thought.
