No Coffee Does Not Cause Acne

At our Acne Clinic we treat patients looking to improve their acne symptoms and enhance their natural beauty. While consulting with our patients they often ask us about what causes acne. Many patients have asked us, does coffee cause acne? You may be happy to know that coffee does not cause acne. But it should be noted that diary put into coffee could contribute to acne symptoms for some people. If you are concerned about how dairy affects your skin, you may wish to speak with a professional to understand the big picture about your unique skin and acne symptoms.

What Causes Acne?

Thankfully, coffee does not cause acne. But what does? Acne develops when the hair follicles on our skin become clogged. This happens when either oil or dead skin enters the hair follicle. Acne is not an indication of a poor diet or poor hygiene.
Stress, hormone changes, medications and sometimes diet can all be contributing factors to acne development. This helps us understand why teens and pregnant women often have acne as they are both going through hormonal changes.
Diet and dairy products may not be a problem for your skin. It is always a good idea to understand the full picture when treating your unique acne symptoms before cutting out foods you enjoy.

Acne Treatment

Our Acne Clinic often treats patients that have unsuccessfully tried to treat their acne at home. Though over the counter treatments work for some people, not every person will respond the same way. It is important to understand your unique skin to effectively treat acne. Our experts can help you develop a plan to effectively treat your unique skin.
