Abstract:The article reports studies related to the link of acne with diet. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology in 2005, researchers found that dairy products such as skim milk, sherbet, cottage cheese, and cream cheese were linked to acne in young women with doctor-diagnosed severe teenage acne. Researchers hypothesize that the hormones and bioactive molecules found in milk and milk products might be a factor in the development of acne. In other skin news, researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine found that outbreaks of acne correlate with episodes of stress experienced at exam time.
