for one thing dont drink nofat or skim milk, if you want just get 2%...nofat and skim have been highly refined and processed to get the fat out

It doesn't make me breakout but everyone is different. I've read posts here of people saying that dairy makes them breakout. If you think it's breaking you out you might want to stop drinking it and see if your skin improves. I gave up dairy for a little while and then started eating and drinking it again and saw no change in my acne.

Hey...milk, cheese, or cream will make me break-out within 3 days with hard nodule. But, thats just me. It might not be the case with you.

The thing you want to watch out for with soy milk is that most brands contain a lot of sugar/sweeteners which can mess things up.

Anyone who breaks out with Cow's Milk might want to try Goats Milk as its easier to digest. You get used to the taste and its supposed to be better for you. In my opinion Milk would only make your skin worse if you have an Allergy to it.

Re: Does milk make acne worse?

Ive never been a huge fan of milk but I cant live without milk, i need it for cereral! i drink full fat milk which i hear is not very good for ur skin. if i drink an excessive amount of milk i usually break out. Some1 suggested i should swtiched to semi-skimmed or skimmed milk. Im not sure if that will help in terms of my skin. Anyone???

Re: Does milk make acne worse?

nj guy, I think your problem is sugar not dairy.
For me, I quit milk about three months ago. I could not be happier. My skin has cleared completely (I've done other things too so it's not just (or even) the milk, and I've lost a good amount of weight around my stomach which is great - I'm one of those who are perfectly trim but who can't seem to get flat abs. And yeah, I drink soy now but also in moderation.
