Milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, and butter may all be your friendly enemy. If you cut back on them, you may find out that your face clears up some.

Do dairy products cause acne?

It may not be scientifically proven yet, but according to Bona Fide Skin Care, it may be the cure for those who suffer from acne. Many dermatologists will tell you to stay clear of them if you have a current Acne issue. This is because dairy product hormones can cause a human’s hormones to be over-productive, causing pimples and cysts. Older people tend to become lactose intolerant with age which contributes to adult acne. To find out if Dairy Products are your problem, there is an experiment you can try.

For one whole week, cut out all dairy products. This includes butter, coffee creamer, yogurts [VIDEO], and ice-cream. After those seven days without any dairy products, look in the mirror and see if your face has cleared up any. It should not be hard to see results if dairy products are your issue.

Another experiment you can try, if you don’t want to completely give up your dairy products, is to add a little extra Vitamin A. Be careful when choosing foods that are high in Vitamin A though. You don’t want foods that are high in beta-carotene because too much can cause issues for your thyroid function which is not what you want. If you can’t find the right food to eat, you can always try to supplement your diet with milk alternatives such as soy milk or almond milk. You might also get a vitamin supplement such as Genestra A-Mulsion.

Beauty editor claims that if you follow these steps, you might just see some clearer skin.

Trying one dairy product at a time could be the key

You may not have to cut out all dairy products in your diet. Trying one dairy product at a time for one week could also help you find out if it is just one or all types that your body does not agree with. Some people just can’t eat ice cream while for others, they can’t drink milk. Keep a journal to help track your progress and take before and after pictures so you are able to see just how much one single dairy product can react with your body and skin. If it does come down to the fact that dairy products are your issue, you will have to remember to always look at labels on food products to make sure they are dairy free. For real testimonials and reviews, acne.org has many where the results are different for each person except the fact that cutting out dairy helped clear their faces.
