    Caffeine and acne...

    Hey everyone!
    Well i decided to take these energy boosting pills, and they contained guarana(aka caffeine) So anyway, my skin was like, perfect b4 i took this supplement *3 days ago* and stupid me decided to try it. Well...i dont know what else would cause it, but i think it was the caffenine. Everything was PERFECt but then BOOM, the next day, i started getting pretty damn big inflammed whiteheads, where as b4, i didn''s weird. Oh yah, also i didn't take that energy pill today, and what do u know, not one new zit. Weird? could be just me and my system...but u never know

    I wouldn't think that it was the caffeine...(at least for me caffeine has no effect on my acne... I drink quite a bit of coffee and I haven't had any breakouts lately, In I'm typing this I have a giant cup of coffee siting next to the computer...hehe)

    There was probably some other ingredient in those pills that your body reacted negatively to.<p>[This message has been edited by swissmiss (edited 03-31-2001).]

    I made sure it didn't have Ma Huang*ephederine* Also, it had Citrimax, but i had a energy drink that had citrimax in it and it didn't do anything to make my skin worse...i think the guarana in the drink got to me in some way or another. There's nothing elsei n it that i can think of that could have triggered it

    i cut my coffee intake from 1 latte or 16 oz cup of coffee per day (sometimes twice a day) to just once a week, maybe once every two weeks. it's just a TREAT now and not a daily requirement!

    Caffeine could be the cause of your recent breakout. My derm says that no food has anything to do with acne but caffeine and spicy foods could play a role. He said to stay away from caffeine. Everyone is different and it could effect some people and not others. Well I hope I am to some help. take care

    I don't think a lot of foods cause acne, but I believe that caffeine and spicy foods in excess can aggrevate it in some people. Maybe every once in a while would be o.k. though.
