Can what I eat cause acne breakouts? Generally, no. The primary cause of most break outs of acne is the fluctuation of hormones. Hormones stimulate the oil glands to produce more sebum, which can clog pores. Bacteria can then grow within the pores, causing them to become inflamed.
This can happen at major hormonal changes, such as during the menstrual periods, and during the teen years, no matter what you eat. Some have suggested that high consumption of dairy products raises the risk of getting acne because of the hormones in milk, cheese, and yogurt. However, subsequent studies have not supported the theory.
