Does drinking milk cause acne?

I don’t know if anyone has ever observed themselves when they had acne or what caused the acne that occurred at that time. Because you don’t wash your face cleanly? Because I’m about to get my period? Because of cosmetics? Because of stress? Or because of the food?

A few days ago One Twitter user shared a method to get rid of acne. That user stated that Drinking milk and eating dairy products Contributes to acne If you refrain from drinking milk or refrain from eating foods obtained from milk. It will help the acne disappear. That makes many people wonder if “drinking milk” is really one of the causes of “acne”?

If you ask if milk “plays a part” in causing acne, the answer is “Yes.” But if you ask how much is certain? “There is no definitive research,” but one study found that drinking milk or consuming foods made with milk It can cause something that no one desires like “acne”.

The matter of acne

Acne is familiar to almost everyone. Because everyone has gone through a period of being young before. But whether it will be a lot or a little depends on the person. This is because the variable that causes acne during reproductive age is “hormones” especially “Growth Hormone” because teenagers It is the age of transition from children growing up to becoming adults. This age period is therefore the period when growth hormone levels are highest. At the same time, hormone levels are always fluctuating.

Growth hormone hormone produced the pituitary gland. The important function of growth hormone, as the name suggests, is that it is a hormone that helps in the growth of the body, including height, muscle, and bone mass, allowing the young generation to grow appropriately. In addition, growth hormone is involve in the metabolic system in the body. Because it has a similar chemical structure to insulin. Therefore has the ability to control blood sugar levels.

This growth hormone affects the sebaceous glands under the skin. If the body has high hormone levels Causes the sebaceous glands to stimulat and produce more fat. So much that it causes the pores to become clogged. This blockage allows P.acne bacteria (bacteria that causes) to grow well and break down fat. White blood cells that are responsible for dealing with foreign substances (bacteria) gather in that area. Causes inflammation until it turns into .

So how does eating dairy products cause acne?

Although there is currently no conclusive evidence that consuming dairy products causes acne “directly”, “indirectly” milk contributes to more severe inflammation.

One 2018 study tested the hypothesis of whether dairy product consumption affects. Using a sample of 78,529 people, a mix of children, teenagers, and adults. The results of this study found a link between milk consumption and acne.

It is well known that milk is a food with high nutritional value, especially “protein”. The main proteins in milk are proteins call whey (whey) and casein (casein). It also has natural growth hormone. too Whey increases insulin levels in the blood. At the same time, casein increases growth hormone. These proteins are therefore important variables that may trigger acne. Therefore, when analyzing this connection. It can be seen that the protein in milk has a greater effect on causing than the fat content in milk.

Moreover, growth hormone is similar to insulin. From the study.

It was also found that Adults who drank milk 3 times a day continuously for more than 12 weeks had growth hormone levels about 10 percent higher than those who did not drink milk. As for children around 10-12 years old who are entering adolescence. Drinking milk increases the growth hormone in the blood by about 9-20 percent.

This study tested all types of dairy products, including fresh milk, yogurt, and cheese, choosing to analyze both normal fat and low fat milk products. What is gained from the study is All types of dairy products are associated with acne in samples aged 7-30 years, And acne is more likely to occur in people. Who consume low-fat milk than regular fat milk.

Therefore, people who drink low-fat milk or skim milk People who drink normal milk are more likely to have acne than those who drink normal milk. This may be due to the fact that people tend to choose to consume low-fat milk.

It was found that people. Who drink milk every day, 1 glass per day (or more), have a higher chance of developing than those who do not drink milk every day or only drink about 2-3 glasses per week. And in people who have chronic Will have higher levels of growth hormone than people who rarely have acne. From this, a relationship between growth hormone levels and severity can determined. It is found mostly in adult women.
