Going into the new year, and after months of having awful “maskne” along my jaw line, I decided I wanted to see what I could change about my diet that could potentially help this issue. (Sidenote: does anyone have other tips for dealing with this acne?)
I have had issues with acne in the same area when I switched over to having soy milk daily, so I already try to limit the amount of soy in my diet. So, the next thing I am trying to limit is dairy. I say limit because I am not someone who can completely cut out, for example instead of being vegetarian for the past 6 years, I enjoy chicken fingers every once in a while! This flexibility and forgiving nature of my less restrictive limits are comfortable for me, and I plan on doing the same with dairy, mainly by reducing my dairy intake when I am making my snacks and meals.
I guess I am writing to ask if anyone else has noticed bad breakouts related to food? Are there other foods that could be causing this that I am missing.I am excited to make this change in my diet for other reasons as well. So far I have read about benefits to my energy levels and digestive health. am hoping to notice some improvements in both areas! To anyone who has gone/is dairy free I would love to hear about your experience. Lastly, what are some of your favorite dairy free alternatives that you have incorporated in your diet?
