Question Caffeine Can Cause Acne?

Hi all. I'm new here and I'm a vegan for a year. I feel good not eating any meat. I was scared when I saw a man cutting fish in the pieces yesterday ( the fish was bleeding).
Here I have a problem:
I
got acne easily once I had fried food or stayed up late. I hate the fact that my acne occurs nearly every month.
I'm a bit of a tea fiend and wondered if you guys here like it or dis-like it. Green tea is my favorite, I usually drink 2-3 cups a day. But I heard that caffeine in strong tea would cause acne, is that true? I can feel acne became worse when I used to drinking 2 cups of coffee to pick myself up during office time. So caffeine is to blame?

Hi

I drinks tea some days but I drink a lot of coffee but I don't get acne I drink a lot of water to make up for the dehydration effect however I have read that caffeine can boost stress hormones which can cause acne and caffeine drinks are worse with sugar and milk in them because sugar and cow's milk are both acne causers. I never use sugar and I use soy milk.

I'm sure others here can give you more information about this.

There are so many poorly-substantiated online claims about what causes acne. I would be skeptical of anything found on a blog, popular health website, or YouTube.

The American Academy of Dermatology, a reputable organization, makes this statement regarding diet and acne risk:
Quote:
•Given the current data, no specific dietary changes are recommended in the management of acne.
•Emerging data suggests that high glycemic index (GI) diets may be associated with acne.
•Limited evidence suggests that some dairy, particularly skim milk, may influence acne.

Sugar, of course, is a high glycemic index food. Other high glycemic foods include white bread, white rice, and processed starchy foods (French fries, crackers, cookies). The Harvard University School of Public Health has published a listing of glycemic index of foods: http://www.health.harvard.edu/diseas...-for-100-foods
.

Specific recommendations for a healthy diet include: eating more fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains; cutting down on salt, sugar and fats. It is also advisable to choose unsaturated fats, instead of saturated fats and towards the elimination of trans-fatty acids."
