Edmonton Acne Treatments

One of the most sought-after treatment results is clear, glowing skin. At Glo, all of our treatments are customized to your individual skin type, skin condition, and age. While we offer a number of treatments to clear breakouts, knowing the cause of your acne is the best type of prevention. 

Here at Glo, our Skin Experts know that an excellent skincare regimen should be complemented by trying to maintain healthy skin from the inside out. By drinking lots of water and following a healthy diet, many individuals can maximize the results of their skincare treatments.

If you're using the right products for your skin type, drinking a sufficient amount of water, limiting highly processed foods, and are still suffering from breakouts, it may be helpful to look into whether or not dietary or hormonal issues could be behind your acne.

Dairy and Acne

Did you know that acne has repeatedly been linked to dairy and other common food intolerances? The American Academy of Dermatology notes several studies that have established a correlation between dairy intake and acne breakouts. These studies have included teens, adults, women, and men.

In a 2013 review published by the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, researchers examined the evidence between acne and diet and found that certain products, particularly cow's milk, produce and stimulate hormones linked to acne. The association does not seem to be related to the fat content of milk, as low-fat milk had an even greater association with acne compared with high-fat milk. Some Dermatologists speculate the correlation may be due to the growth hormones found in milk today. It is suggested that these hormones can cause an increase in clogged pores in certain areas of the face.

Additionally, there are many examples of individuals in the beauty industry who discuss how their acne was eliminated when they reduced their dairy intake. 

Are You Considering Cutting Dairy For Clearer Skin?

  • It's always a good idea to discuss any significant dietary changes with your doctor or nutritionist. These professionals will be able to point you in the right direction and suggest other nutritional strategies to eliminate acne.
  • For individuals who wish to reduce dairy intake instead of going “cold turkey”, it's beneficial to make sure the dairy you're consuming is of high quality, with fewer additives and hormones.
