My sister has food allergies - milk and egg specifically that cause painful acne looking allergy pimples.  One way to check out if its an allergy is to keep a food diary. It was only when she looked at her diary that she was able to make the connection and insist on seeing an allergist who confirmed it. Now she cannot have foods made with either egg or milk.
 
There are alternatives to using milk or eggs - we have sorbet or Tofutti instead of ice cream, use non-egg based egg replacement (stupid people use egg in some of the common egg replacement products WITHOUT listing egg on the incredient lists) in baking goods and use rice/almond/hemp milk. Be careful with soy though because many people with milk allergies tend to have soy sensitivities. Also read labels carefully - its not always clearly marked as containing eggs and milk as ingredients.

If you have a dairy allergy, then I can see how milk would cause you to have acne. I used to drink damn near a gallon of milk a day and I never had acne. I was big as all outdoors, but my skin was beautiful! LOL

1. no milk or milk products

2. lower sugar intake by substituting the brown sugar for maple syrup

3. 2000mg Salmon oil (omega-3)

4. 1000mg Evening primrose oil (omega-6)

5. multi vitamin (that includes iron and vitamin E)

6. Echinacea with Goldenseal root 450mg

7. vitamin A 25000iu (for 2months)

8. probiotic acidophilus

i take other crap too but for other reasons so i wont mention as a part of my acne program.

 


doing all of this actually worked for me.  i stayed on this course for a year and fell off with the sugar in november but not too bad.  i stopped getting cysts altogether.  i also started back eating cheese and in moderation. also when i started last summer using primrose directly on my face in addition to taking it orally.

I stopped eating beef and pork and cut my consumption of sugar & dairy products and my skin has never been more beautiful. It has helped me lose weight too. I feel so good!

Cows milk is one of the biggest things that contribute to acne flareups. Time and time again, I notice as the whether warms up and I tend towards ice cream (my fav...the only cows milk I intake)...acne comes at my face with a vengeance smh.

Are milk and sugar the causes of acne. Not for everybody. It could a number of things hormonal, you could be allergic to the makeup you use or the face cleanser or moisturizer. There are a number of things that cause acne. Also if your pores get dirty you can break out so you need to keep your skin clean. I like to use a clarins cleanser and toner and that usually keep acne a bay.
