Ask The Nutritionist - Avoid Dairy!

Q: Hello Angie, I am a 29 year old woman with facial spots! What could be causing them, please? Suzie B

A: Hi Suzie, Two large controlled trials found that cow's milk increased both the number of people who got acne and its severity. The good news is that dark chocolate didn't seem to cause acne.

Dairy boosts testosterone or androgens. Androgens stimulate your skin to make spots. Have a full hormone panel test to see how your hormones are doing and see a Nutritional Therapist who can help you to rebalance any excess hormones.

Once you have made the dietary and lifestyle change there is a big chance you will find your skin will become pimple free. Avoid Dairy!
