I researched fish oil online before I bought it and two brands seemed to work well for acne-prone people: Spring Valley and Sundown. Sundown contains soy, so I went with Spring Valley. I now have painful, inflamed acne all over my T-zone. I won’t be able to leave the house for a week! Keep the receipt in case fish oil doesn’t agree with you..

Pros:
  • Beneficial for overall health
  • Stronger, shinier hair & nails
  • Readily available in most stores
Cons:
  • Caused cystic acne

Acne sufferers out there stop wasting your money on cosmo acne products, believe me I've been there. Cosmo anti acne-I've used loads of these stuff but it didn't work , I suffered severe acne for 6 years , yep acne took my life for 6 years, its like being in prison -cant go out, can't socialised, I was so depressed but now luckily I found this fish oil working to treat these horrible acne and it's effective, effortless, and more savings rather than buying Cosmo products... Use fish oil!

Pros

  • Regulates hormonal imbalance , more energetic, healthy skin, Zero acne, clear skin, oil free face skin

Cons

  • 3-4g/day is recommend- I think it's most effective , overdosing can cause mood changes.
  • severe
  • for about a week
  • $ 1
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I definitly recommend them! It took about a week for them to start working, I've been takin them for about three weeks now and my face is completly clear. I still have to use acne cleansers and spot treatment, but if I don't skip any pills and continue taking good care of my skin. It's almost perfect! (: I use Spring Valley regular strength btw, and I take four a day.

Pros

  • Clears up acne
  • Makes my skin soft and glowy

Cons

  • None that makes it not worth taking
  • Slight fishy taste if you buy cheep pills, but taking them with food will help with that
  • severe
  • for a few weeks
  • $ 10
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I have been taking fish oil everyday for more than a year to keep depression at bay and I can say it works quite well.

Plus it reduces inflammation in the body so it can help acne.

  • Proven to be effective against depression
  • Reduces inflammation

Cons

  • None
  • light
  • for more than a year
  • $ 25
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

Fish oil is one of the many vitamins that i take that do not do much for my skin. This supplement actually breaks me skin out instead of helping clear it. I have noticed that whenever i take it i break out really bad along the jawline area. When i break out it is very deep and painful pimples that don't seem to go away regardless of how many acne products i use on it. I have heard that this vitamin does wonders for other people tho and i encourage everyone to at least try it if you want to find an acne supplement that is natural and healthy for you.

Pros

  • Natural product

Cons

  • Expensive depending on the brand
  • Fishy taste
  • moderately severe
  • for a few months
  • $ 12
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.

I have moderate hormonal acne. I break out around my chin and jawline. I've been seeing a dermatologist for nearly a year. First I was put on Doxycycline. When my acne didn't respond to that after three months, my dermatologist added Ziana to my regimen. Four months later and no improvements, I was put on Solodyn and Benzaclin instead. Nothing was working! She decided to fight hormones with hormones, and I was prescribed Ortho Tri Cyclen to take along with the Solodyn. A few months later, still no results. I started taking 1000mg fish oil capsules (Nature Made) twice a day. After two weeks, I noticed definite improvement. My skin was clearer and brighter (though not COMPLETELY clear), and I was also in a better mood. I was able to sleep better at night, and woke up feeling refreshed and alert instead of pressing the snooze button 4 times. After about a month using the fish oil, my skin is 99% clear. I get a small breakout around my period, but nothing like how it used to be. Fish oil. Who knew?

Pros

  • Assisted in clearing skin
  • Treated hormonal acne
  • Relatively inexpensive
  • Effective
  • Overall beneficial
  • Improves mood
  • Wake up alert instead of tired

Cons

  • Make sure you buy a coated capsule/tablet or else you will have some fishy breath!
  • moderate
  • for about a month
  • $ 12
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

Pros

Cons

  • Broke out like crazy
  • moderately severe
  • for about a month
  • $ 12
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.

I FULLY recommend fish oil as a dietary supplement for all walks of life. I did a ton of research on it before I took the supplement (like any other supplement I take), and found I could only benefit from it. I have been taking fish oil daily (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) for about five weeks now and my skin has never been smoother and silkier. I had very light to light acne before, but now it is honestly not even a factor. I feel 100x better now that I'm taking it, my memory is way better, and it even puts me in a better mood.

THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING:

FDA approves the company for scanning their fish for safe mercury levels

1000mg of Omega-3 (in the Americas we already have enough Omega-6 and 9 in our diets that we don't need all three)

180mg of EPA

120mg of DHA

Enteric coated (no fish burps! As it dissolves after it gets past your stomach.)

Pros

  • Brought me from 95% clear to 100% clear!
  • Inexpensive
  • A whole HOST of additional health benefits
  • Puts me in a good mood

Cons

  • Takes 4-6 weeks to see results
  • 3 pills a day (the 3-in-1 pills are HUGE!)
  • very light
  • for about a month
  • $ 20
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I read all the reviews on here before purchasing the fish oil, I kept in mind all the negative reviews of the Fish oil, while i made the decision to test this out, and to my surprise noticed constant sneezing and watery eyes within 30 minutes of taking the fish oil, it lasted for 6 hours . The sneezing went away around 9:00 pm, I took another 2 pills around 10:00 pm, ( just to see if i had another episode) 30 minutes later the same story , sneezing and watery eyes. The next morning I wake up and look in the mirror and saw a major break out on my face, 30 white heads all over my face and some huge ones under my skin. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Pros

  • None

Cons

  • Made me break out with more acne.
  • Gave me an allergic reaction 30 minutes after taking 2 capsules, constant sneezing and watery eyes with nasal drip.
  • moderate
  • for a day or two
  • $ 12
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.
