The article includes Dr. Patel‘s expert commentary on the correlation between acne and increased milk consumption.
The quality of your skin is a reflection of your lifestyle, specifically your diet. Studies show that there is a direct correlation between breakouts and the foods we eat, which is why it’s important to ensure that your diet is filled with nutrient-rich foods and drinks that are fortified with skin-healthy vitamins and minerals.
In fact, dermatologists say that there’s one drink that is notorious for clogging pores and causing flare-ups–it’s milk!
“Believe it or not, it is milk. There is a correlation between acne and increased milk consumption,” Dr. Purvisha Patel, board-certified dermatologist and founder of Visha Skincare , tells SheFinds. “Cows in today’s western world are stimulated to lactate and produce milk by giving them hormones or prolactin.
