Vitamin D?! Need Your Opinions!

So. I have been on doxy now a good 7 months and i think that now im just taking them for nothing. It worked well for the first 5-6 months but now i can definitely tell that my body has gotten used to it and it isn't working so well. God knows how many things i've given up in my life and how many things im missing out on. My confidence is at an all time low. Im not myself anymore, this kind of stuff. Anything i do, i still get new acne all over! My face, my shoulders, back of my neck, on my back and my chest. I take cod liver oil daily, have a facewash plan, eat well but still, nothing. However i did rant about all of this a while back, exclaiming that i personally dont believe that acne has anything to do with washing your face, or eating the right foods etc. If washing your face and eating crap caused acne, then all of my friends and family would have it. I know for a fact none of them have a facewash regime, and none of them eat healthy all the time. Just junk and shit all the time. So it must be something wrong inside of me, something im lacking. Now, my acne only started to get really really bad a year ago, which is the same time i stopped drinking milk because i thought thats what was causing it. Since that day, my calcium intake has been poor. I dont drink milk at all and hardly eat foods that are rich in calcium such as cheese,yoghurt, nuts, seeds that kind of stuff. I was reading a forum the other day of these people who had cured their acne, or at least helped it, by intaking vitamin d daily. Now we all know that we get vitamin d from the sun. However, where i live in england, its cold and gets dark very early now, and with my confidence, i hardly ever go out and when i do, i wear a hat etc and im not in the sun for too long. Therefore i was thinking, is my acne being caused by a lack of vitamin d? A lack of the suns power so to speak. I remember when i was on holiday and my acne was bad, but after 6 days in 35'C sunshine, it had improved slightly. It might be a long shot, however im going to buy 1000/2000iu vitamin d capsules on monday and start a course on them for a while, see what happens. And if i dont have any luck again, then accutane it will have to be. Whats your take on vitamin d?
