Does moderate consumption of diary products lead to acne?

Doctor: The potential role of dietary consumption in acne is controversial. Some studies do show that there is association betwe en acne and intake of milk. It is suggested that natural hormonal components of milk or other bio-active molecules in milk could exacerbate acne, however more research needs to be done.
