Why you shouldn't drink milk?

Hi Beauties! 

We have heard this quote many many times "You eat what you are" and I am not specifically pointing at so called "junk food", I am talking about MILK, shocking is it? 
Well a lot of people say that milk causes acne to become worse and looking more irritated. 
So today's post is to clear things up and tell you why you shouldn't drink milk! I am not saying it's entirely bad for you, but if you do drink it on a daily basis, you might want to rethink it over! So if you suffer from Acne and you've been drinking a lot  of milk lately, well this is why.

Let me clarify that not all milk will cause you to have break-out. Skim milk has said to be the type of milk that causes more breakout rather than if you take Whole milk.

How does milk contribute to acne? 

- Milk contains androgen hormones which is strongly linked to acne breakout, not only that but women produce testosterone so basically it stimulates the sebaceous glands. If you have oily skin this will create a more oilier face for you because of the blockage of pores and of course, pimples. 

The no milk diet; 

Try skipping milk for breakfast, try instead soya bean (without dairy, of course) or anything that doesn't need to do with dairy &Your skin will clear up. 
Do this for about a month and you'll see results! 

Disclaimer; All pictures are not mine unless stated to be so! 

Update; Let me clear things up okay, Not everyone will get affected and have pimples due to milk. What I meant is that if you have pimples and you drink milk, this MIGHT be the reason why. &Again, I am not a doctor or any sort, so you can either believe it or not. Hopefully this clear things up! 

Kisses! ♥
