Ok, so a friend told me that coffee causes her to break out, which is why she never drinks it. Ever since she told me that little fact, I’ve paid attention to my coffee consumption and breakouts. I usually only breakout around that time of the month, other than that, I may have one occassional pimple here and there. I wonder if I quit drinking coffee if my occassional pimple here and there would stop? I recently went through a tough time with my fiance (longggg story) where I couldn’t eat or drink anything, which ceased my consumption of coffee……my skin was remarkable!!!! Am I thinking way too into coffee and my skin??? Have any bees out there heard of that too? I want flawless skin on my wedding day, even if that means I need to forgo coffee…in which case, yes, I will have to practice stopping a year in advance because that’s how much I love coffee!

I’ve never heard this.
And, as a coffee lover, I know it’s completely false….
It HAS to be! Coffee is my 1 and only major indulgenge.
don’t take this away from me!

I’ve heard that caffeine can cause breakouts but I think that most breakouts are actually caused by bacteria and/or genetics, no what we ingest. At least, I choose to believe that. 😛

I haven’t heard that, but it would be interesting to see studies looking at it.
I do know that when you eat healthier, your skin massively improves. I used to be a cheese pizza/pasta type of vegetarian (hey, I was 11 when I made the switch!) and as soon as I started eating mostly fruits, veggies, whole wheat, legumes, (basically, whole foods) my skin cleared right up. I never break out except for the occasional period pimple, and I drink the equivalent of five cups of black coffee a day. I’m sure genetics do play a role, but proper nutrition definitely helps!
