But what is it then, that some dairy products cause acne and others not? The scientists blame it on the hormones that are present in the milk. Milk contains androgens, which are already for a long time with the occurrence of acne outbreaks in connection. Is one of the androgenic hormones testosterone and has been proven that it has a strong influence on the Acne formation.
Usually it is associated only with male bodies in connection, but also women make testosterone, albeit in smaller quantities. Testosterone is converted in the body to di-hydro testosterone (DHT). DHT stimulates the sebaceous glands to make more sebum. As a result, the skin is oily, clog the pores and pimples and blackheads occur. Milk contains a variety of hormones – and including DHT. The amount of contained hormones could be sufficient to cause an effect in the human body. People that genetic tendency to acne, can cause an acne seemingly by the consumption of milk. In the dairy industry, it is common that the dairy farmers give the cows additional hormones to stimulate milk production. The result: Milk contains often large amounts of IGF-1. IGF-1 is a factor of growth, which is highest in people during puberty, if and only if the acne is usually strongest.
