The Complexion Devil

If you are suffering from severe acne and have tried multiple skincare treatments with no real improvement, here is some important advice for you! First, look at your dietary habits. Dairy Products such as milk, cheese, butter, or ice cream, all aggravate acne! Primarily the purpose of cow’s milk is to give a calf the hormones it needs to grow into a large animal. The hormones in cow’s milk were NOT naturally designed for humans; it can be the culprit of our clogged pores, and causes inflammation in the skin. Dairy is also one of the hardest substances for your body to digest even if you are not allergic to it. So, what is a good way to find out if this is part of your acne problems? Start by removing Dairy completely from your diet for 3 weeks then re-introduce one type of dairy at a time, every 3 days, whilst paying attention to your skin’s reaction.
