Vitamins for acne? - February 28th 2009, 10:47 PM

Does anybody take any vitamins or supplements to help keep acne at bay? Which ones work the best?

I've heard about those hair, skin and nails formulas, but I've mostly heard stuff about the benefits for hair, and not much for the skin. Do things like this actually work?

I've gone through almost every over-the-counter acne product and most prescription ones as well, and I have never heard of any vitamins that help clear up acne. The only pills I've heard of are prescription ones from your doctor, or birth control.

I've also heard that if you smear foods with vitamin E on your skin it helps... though you have to make sure you wash it off thoroughly after or it just makes the situation worse...

Try using Aloe Vera on your skin and keeping your hair off your face - especially at night

Rubbing lemon juice on the spots helps. You just rub it on, keep it on for a minute(I'm not sure how long, one of my friends told me this) and then wash it off.

Go to your doctor and ask?

I eat multivitamins and I don't think they do anything for acne? I dunno.

Your diet does not affect your acne, so I wouldn't expect it to do much.

I take multi vitamins and they don't affect it even a little, the amount of fatty foods in your diet do affect it since it'll built up on your skin.
The doctor can give you antibiotics which do work quite a bit and this face rub...well thats what they gave me.
