I don't know if anyone ever noticed when they had acne, or whether the pimples were formed at that time. Because washing your face is not clean? Because of cosmetics? Because of stress? Or is it because of the food?
A few days ago One Twitter user shared how to get rid of acne. That user stated Drinking milk and eating dairy products Contributed to acne Which if you abstain from drinking milk or eating from milk Will help acne heal That leaves many people wondering, is "drinking milk" really one of the causes of "acne"?
If asked if milk "contributes" to acne, you can answer "yes" but if asked how sure it is. “There is no definitive research yet,” but one study found that drinking milk or consuming dairy foods. It can cause unwanted "acne" things, what is it?
Acne is very familiar to almost everyone. Because everyone has been through a period of youth. But will be more or less, it depends on people This is because what is the variant that causes acne during reproductive age is "hormones", especially "Growth Hormone". It is the age that has changed from a growing child to an adult. At this age, growth hormone levels are the highest. At the same time, hormone levels are constantly inversely related.
Growth hormone is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland. The important function of growth hormone is known as a hormone that helps in the growth of the body, height, muscle, bone mass, to grow properly, growth hormone is also involved in the metabolism in the body. Because it has a chemical structure similar to that of insulin Therefore having the ability to regulate blood sugar levels
This growth hormone affects the sebaceous glands. If the body has high hormone levels Causing the sebaceous glands to be stimulated and to generate more fat So much that the pores become clogged This blockage causes P.acne bacteria (bacteria that cause acne) to grow better and digest fat. White blood cells that are responsible for dealing with foreign bodies (P.acne bacteria) are gathered in that area. Causing inflammation until it becomes acne
So how does eating dairy foods cause acne?
While there is currently no conclusive evidence that dairy consumption can cause “direct” acne breakouts, “indirectly” milk contributes to more severe inflammatory acne.
One 2018 study tested the hypothesis on whether the consumption of dairy products affected acne breakouts. By using a sample group of 78,529 people, mixed with children, adolescents and adults. The results obtained from this study found a link between milk consumption and acne.
Milk is known to be highly nutritious, especially "protein", where the main proteins in milk are whey and casein proteins. It also contains natural growth hormones. with Whey will increase the level of insulin in the blood. At the same time, casein increases growth hormone. Therefore, these proteins are important factors that can trigger acne. Therefore, analyzing this association, it is found that the protein in milk has a greater effect on acne than the fat content of milk.
Also, growth hormone is similar to insulin. The study also found that Adult people who drink 3 meals of milk a day for over 12 weeks have about 10 percent higher growth hormone levels than those who don't drink milk. Teenage years Drinking milk increases the blood growth hormone by 9-20 percent.
All types of dairy products, including whole milk, yoghurt, cheese were tested in this study, with a selective analysis of both normal and low-fat dairy products. What has been learned from the study is Poki All types of dairy products were associated with acne in the sample aged 7-30 years and were more prone to acne in those who consumed skimmed milk than normal fat milk. Therefore, those who drank skimmed milk or skimmed milk. It tends to get acne more easily than those who drink plain milk. This may be due to the fact that people are more likely to choose low-fat milk.
It also found that people who drink milk every day, 1 glass (or more) per day, are more likely to develop acne than those who do not drink milk every day or drink 2-3 glasses a week only and in people with acne. chronic Have higher hormone levels than people who do not have acne From this, a relationship between growth hormone levels and acne severity can be found. It is most common in adult women.
Does avoiding dairy products really help reduce acne?
From the above study, it can be concluded that people who consume dairy products are more likely to develop acne than those who rarely consume dairy products. But it also depends on other factors Especially physical factors Which each person is not the same Including the environment. Still, this research collects information from Westerners. The Western diet is often composed of milk and foods that have a high glycemic index. It is a hypothesis for researchers to find a link between milk consumption and acne.
And because of some evidence that milk proteins are responsible for causing acne, it is inferred that reducing or cutting down on dairy products is likely to reduce acne breakouts. However, there has been no clear scientific proof. This is just a reasonable and likely assumption.
