Just another shout-out to people who suffer from acne. People who say diet isn't linked to acne are bullshitting you. Just. Think about that sentence. It doesn't make any sense at all. Obviously what you eat is going to be reflected on your skin.

Milk. Sucks.

For me anyways. Before, I would drink 4 cups of milk a day, trying to grow taller than the average midget Asian. But that's when my acne hit the worst.

Drink. Soy. Milk. It has the same amount of calcium. Preferably the organic original kind (Vanilla flavouted = more sugar)

Another worrying hormone, as far as acne is concerned, is IGF-1. This "growth factor" peaks at age 15 in girls and 18 in boys, coinciding with peak acne levels. IGF-1 is thought to works with testosterone and DHT to cause acne. IGF-1 is present in cows' milk anyway, but levels rise by 10 per cent when cows are given injections of recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) to increase milk yield. Drinking organic milk is not a solution because the cows are still pregnant while lactating, so they have the same hormones in their milk as non-organic cows. - The Milk Blog
