Re: does milk make you break out?

It may agrivate it, since milk promotes Candida (a yeast growing in the intestines), which promotes acne breakouts. But, it can't cause them overnight, since pimples take 4 weeks to form at the epidermis.

Re: does milk make you break out?

I cut out all dairy products 6 months ago and its the best thing i have ever done for my skin, after suffering from acne since i was 15 (i'm 23 now). My skin is almost completely clear now, and i don't even miss dairy.

I don't think it is the case for everyone, not for a minute, but certainly some acne can be aggravated by a dairy intolerance. If i were you id cut it out just for a few weeks and see if you notice an improvement.

it takes 4 weeks to form, is that why it takes a couple of weeks for treatments to work due to the pimples are already forming while you start treatment?

Re: does milk make you break out?

You may want to try switching to organic milk. Sometimes it's not the milk itself that makes us break out but the hormones they give the cows that are passed on to us when we drink the milk. But if you are sensitive to dairy products in general, you may have to give up all dairy products -- but it would be worth it not to have to deal with acne.
