Do you guys know of any home made protein shakes without using milk? I can't drink a lot of milk anymore because it's giving me acne.

Unless you have been diagnosed with a specific allergic reaction to milk, it is unlikely to be the cause of your acne. Your subeaceous glands are at the mercy of your hormones more than your diet.

Make sure you bathe/shower immediately after exercise (dont stay sweaty) and consult your doc as to possible acne treatments if its bad. This will help more than watery protein shakes.

Many protein supplements directions for use say you can use either milk or water. Check your protein supplement and if indicated use water instead.

Milk and water its the same. It just tastes dif and more creamier with milk I guess. Also dairy products raise your body's ph level (acidic) and some people dont like that for training/sickness etc. Just use water if you dont like milk.
CORD- Speaking of acne, do people with more testosterone have more acne? Or is just certain individuals skin reacts different to testosterone?

Peaks in testosterone do correlate with acne for many people. Thats why the condition is synonamous with teenagers and their hormone fluctuations. There is also a strong link between acne and steroid abuse, which in turn elavates testosterone levels.

I've tried everything for my acne, and nothing works. My aunt had acne also, and she told me that she didn't drink a lot of milk and it went away, so it seemed good for me to stop drinking a lot of milk. It's probably hormones.

You could try Soy milk, or some of the other milk substitutes. I agree with Cord, that I think the milk thing is unlikely to affect your acne. Talk to your doctor, there are lots of things available for treatment.



Cord -

I did not know that testosterone peaks had any corellation with acne. Is it the same thing for girls?

I was under the impression that most steroid using bodybuilers got acne because of the oil base used in many injectable steroids.

As a teen I did not really get acne until I turned around 17/18. I did really nothing but tried to wait it out and by my early 20's I was fed up. I started seeing a Dermitologist which I highly recommend. Acne can be hereditary and for myself it was due to "large pores" which oils can build up in. With medication these pores were able to be shrunk and thus the elimination of my acne.

Some other things that can cause acne is excessive sweating without cleaning afterwards. Or believe it or not, excessive washing. From what the Dermitoligist told me, very rarely does it have to do with what you eat or drink ... because when I was younger I was always told that sweets were the cause of this or too much pop and that is the fartherest from the truth.

Best to get facts and this is from Dermitologists or a very knowledgeable GP (General Practitioner aka Doctor).

High levels of testosterone can also have an effect. I do break out from time to time on my back and taking steroids is a no-no for me. Another thing that high levels of testosterone can effect is hair loss. The higher levels of testosterone the less hair. This is another reason why many steroid users start to bald. Man, the testoterone running through my system must be running rampant. I should bottle this stuff. My wife would be more then happy to have me give some away.

I have had a couple friends/relatives use that stuff on TV, I think its called ProActive. Not trying to endorse or act as a doctor, but I would reccommend looking into that. It worked wonders for my cousin who unfortunatly had horrible, horrible acne. I would say about 6 months later his face looked completley different. If anything it boosted his confidence level 300%.
