IGF-1 is a growth hormone naturally found in milk. IGF-1 is one of several factors that cause inflammation, which can lead to acne. Unfortunately the cow version of IGF-1 is the same as our IGF-1, so it survives digestion and ends up in your blood stream. This is confirmed by studies showing that dairy products increase IGF-1 levels.
So pretty much milk products cause acne because IGF-1 is increasing sebum production and the growth of new skin cells. Your skin is now producing way too much oil and all these new skin cells die eventually, clogging up your pores which only makes things worse.
In addition to IGF-1 messing up your skin, milk also increases insulin levels and higher insulin levels usually equal higher rates of acne. Insulin stimulates sebum production too.
Most dairy milk has measurable quantities of herbicides, pesticides, antibiotics, blood and pus, among other things. Inflammation is your body’s immune system response to remove these substances from your blood stream. This inflammation can turn your blocked pores into big and painful pimples.
