That doesn't even make any sense whatsoever. I could MABEY see the how caffeine could mabey contribute (since it's a dieretic (sp?) and it may cause glands to lose water making skin dry. But even so, it's probably a myth. Don't worry about it.

I'm sure it is possible for an allergy to either caffeine or milk could aggravate acne. I have heard of it before, particularly for milk.

unless you're applying the food to your face, it doesn't cause acne. some people do have milk allergies that can a rash type problem

My doc said the hormone crap they use to feed the cows may have an effect on acne.

There is a link between elevated levels of blood glucose & acne as high levels of insulin are correlated with increased levels of sebum, which block pores. Thus, any consumption leading to an increase in blood sugar may aggrevate acne. This is perhaps one reason for the carb/sugar link. Coffee has been shown to raise blood sugar, though I imagine it's effect to be quite minimal.

Does milk drinking elevate blood glucose?
