Question Dairy foods and Acne?

Hullo all,

I'm a 15 yro girl and have been on Diane-35 for almost 3 months now, and still waiting for results. I'm starting to look at other factors of my living that may be affecting my skin (and preventing it from healing). I drink a lot of milk, up to 3 glasses per day. Could this be a contributing factor to my bad skin? Since its Summer, it would be better for me anyway to just drink water instead. On top of my milk, I also have a yoghurt even now and then. Could this dairy be the reason I'm not clearing up? Does anyone else have problems with milk too?

Thanks for the help.

Dairy is a common offender in acne. It could very well be the reason. I believe it is one of the reasons.

Re: Dairy foods and Acne?

do a search for "acne and milk" and you'll find a lot of co-relations. Supposedly there's pus (somatic cells) in the milk that could make you break out. There are also hormones (unless you drink organic milk), butter fat, milk sugar and other stuff. I don't like it cause it breaks me out, makes me gasy and phlegmy.
