Acne Cause

This super-common smoothie ingredient has a rep for bringing on rogue breakouts

“ Whey protein can cause or worsen acne ,” says Cybele Fishman, MD , a New York-based dermatologist. I felt totally hoodwinked—although it was really my mistake, as whey protein is actually a dairy product. “Whey is a milk byproduct, and occurs when milk separates into cheese,” explains Purvisha Patel, MD, a board-certified dermatologist and founder of Visha Skincare .

To get into more of the scientifics behind it, Dr. Patel explains that acne is caused by a range of four different factors: follicular occlusion (blockage of your pores), microbe overgrowth in the follicle (bad bacteria in the skin), sebum production or adding an edible oil to the follicle, and inflammation (but of course). “Milk hormones increase the sebum production of the follicles, and whey protein increases insulin levels in the skin, which also increases sebum production,” she says. Dr. Fishman agrees, adding that whey is one of the major proteins in milk, and increases the production of a hormone called insulin-like growth factor 1, or IGF-1. “ Insulin increases sebum , which can clog pores by stimulating too much testosterone production,” she explains.
