  1. There is no scientific basis that caffeine causes acne. That isn’t to say it doesn’t, a t least in some people, but there’s no consistent evidence for most food-based causes of acne.

  2. Yes. Coffee can trigger acne in several important ways. Basically, coffee makes you insulin resistant, which can lead to systemic elevated insulin and blood sugar, causing your skin to over-produce oil, your skin cells to replicate too quickly, and your inflammation levels to go up.

  3. Bacteria causes acne. Keeping the skin clean and exfoliated can relieve it. Hormones can cause your skin to produce more sebum and some people report that certain foods exacerbate this. Caffeine and its metabolites are vasodilators, but whether that is helpful or hurtful, I don’t know.

  4. Yes. Coffee is quite heating to the body, internally. In Ayurveda terminology, it means an aggravated Pitta.
    As a result some people have reactions – such as acne on the face. And for some it is mouth, or canker, sores (red or white sores on inner cheek, inner lips, tongue).

  5. My skin is significantly less prone to acne breakouts when I abstain from coffee. Unfortunately, there is little in the way of clinical research to prove this.
    But there are plenty of correlations.
    1: Caffeine increases cortisol
    2: Cortisol spikes cause inflammation
    3: Inflammation is correlated with acne (and heart disease, depression, etc)

  6. Yes, various studies have stated that excess intake of caffeine can cause acne as it leads to hormonal changes which leads to acne. I would suggest you to reduce your intake of caffeine. To get rid of acne scars, I would suggest you to consult a good doctor from a good skin care clinic like Reva Aesthestics. Take Care!
