is there a link b/w coffee (caffeine) and acne?

i drink coffee every morning, trying to switch to drinking tea instead, and i do have acne; i was wondering if people have stopped breaking out after they stopped drinking coffee?

do you think tea has the same ill effects as coffee?

    I hardly drink any coffee & not much tea but I still have acne!
    But a friend of mines' daughter had really bad acne & when she cut out coffee it cleared up completely!
    Guess we are all different but Im sure its' worth a try.

    tea has a lot of caffeine in it too.

    i drink both - though way more tea - every day. and while i don't have a problem with acne, that could be a function of being middle-aged!

    Caffeine stimulates the release of insulin all by itself and if you are sensitive to too much insulin than you might do good to reduce or eliminate coffee. Everybody is different and the best thing to do is to keep a journal so that you can keep track of what causes or does not cause breakouts. It could be something other than the coffee it could be not enough sleep, too much stress, not eating enough, etc. :)
