Sometimes Dairy Products Cause Acne
At our Acne Clinic our patients often ask us, do dairy products cause acne? In most cases dietary factors do not cause acne. But for some people dairy products can be an aggravating factor for acne. Not every person will experience an issue with dairy causing acne. If you think dairy may be an issue for your skin, you could consider eliminating it from your diet. Elimination diets may help you identify what might aggravate acne.
What Causes Acne?
Acne is caused when the hair follicles on our skin become clogged. This can be due to both buildup of dead skin and oil. There are many factors that will contribute to each person’s experience with acne. Acne is not an indication that a person is unhygienic or does not clean their skin.
Factors such as hormone changes, stress, medication and in some cases, diet can contribute to acne development. It is thought that hormones in dairy could react with testosterone in our bodies and cause a hormonal change that might aggravate acne development.
If you are experiencing acne it may not be necessary to eliminate dairy from your diet. Consider speaking with a qualified professional to help you identify the unique factors that are contributing to your symptoms.
Acne is stubborn. Though at home treatments are available they may not be effective for those dealing with mild to severe acne. It is important to know that you do not need to struggle with the physical and emotional aspects of acne alone.
Our Acne Clinic treats patients seeking help with improving the skin and finding relief from their acne symptoms. Get in touch with and learn about our acne treatments including laser acne removal and chemical peels.
