7. Consider Limiting Dairy
Dairy is one of those foods that you either love it, or hate it. Some people find that consuming dairy makes their skin and hair oilier or makes them break out, whereas others swear by dairy skin masks and believe it helps them remain young (remember how Cleopatra used to bathe in goats milk to stay young?).
So it all boils down to individual preference and tolerance. Some scientists claim that dairy may increase inflammation in the body and contributes to oxidative stress, whereas others believe that the protein and calcium contained in dairy products can strengthen the skin. We advise you to experiment cutting out dairy for a short while and observing your skin.
Do keep in mind that you will have to compensate for the calcium and proteins if you decide to do that, so stock up on nuts and beans.
