OMEGA 3 Supplements will COMPLETELY Stop your Acne

19 posts in this topic

I used to have severe cystic acne I've been on Accutane 3 times all failed. The only thing that has worked is omega 3 supplements, irony right? The most basic fix, natural. I was skeptical to be sure. I usually look at these types of things as bogus, but I had to share my experience with the rest of the world in order to prevent acne in the future years. Most people unfortunately do not know about OMega 3, but it's essentially a natural accutane, without killing your liver, let me explain. Ordinarily the Western diet has a ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 in a ratio of 2:1, however, our MODERN diet has a ratio of around 20:1!!! This is the cause of so much harm. Remember, most of us are here because our ancestors had babies, they were attractive and so are we! we just have a horrible modern diet. Essentially what omega 6 in abundance does, is if it is higher in concentrations than omega 3 it will saturate are receptors to stimulate our hormones to produce more sebum. omega 3 competes with omega 6 to lower the production of such product as sebum. by taking approx 4 tablets a day, or 2, depending on yourself, you will bring the ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 under much more control which will lower the amount of sebum you secrete and will destroy any chance of cystic acne. PLEASE try this and save yourself years of worry and prevent formation of acne scars!!

Which omega3 do you take? I take one from GNC. My acne isnt completely gone but it is better. Its better not because of the omega3 though but rather my regimen


My regimen changed (starting 5/16/09) and I am not a happy camper

AM regimen

Wash face and chest with Kaiser 5% bp wash

Moisturize with face reality skincare cranberry cream

Apply Estee Lauder Future Perfect Eye Cream

Apply make up, blush, finishing powder, MAC moisture cover to dark underyeye circles

Pop a doxycycline

PM regimen

Remove make up with desert esscence jojoba oil using cotton balls

starting evening of May 28, 2009, I wash my face with Face Reality Skincare Sensitive Skin Gel Cleanser at night time only

Apply Differin to face and chest

Wait to dry and moisturize with face reality skincare cranberry cream

Apply Estee Lauder Future Perfect Eye Cream

Pop a doxycycline

Foundation- MAC Studio Tech Foundation in NC20 or MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation in NW15, apply a MAC blush, apply MAC prep and prime finishing powder

Anyone who has a problem zit thats having a hard time healing, try this and let me know if it helped you. Mix one tablespoon of sea salt with three tablespoons of warm water, apply to a cotton ball or a paper towel. Apply to the zit for ten to fifteen minutes, and then wash it off.

NOTE: Individual results will vary.

I've been using EFA's for well over a year and a half after reading about this so-called "acne cure" in an ebook. The result: to date, there has been no signifcant improvement to rave about.

Yeah I think it depends I haven't had much success with it. I still have acne. Maybe the accutane did help some but not enough to stop all acne for you.

I've taken Omega 3's for nearly 7 years now, no effect on my acne. A few months ago, after reading the raves on here, I decided to take more of them, like 3-4 1000mg gelcaps per day. The results, more inflamed breakouts, the painful one's, and I felt grouchy and awful.

Well, if you already eat a lot of fish you shouldn't take them, that could be causing breakouts in some cases here... But for those of us like me who eat very little seafood, it's necessary for keeping the omega 3-6-9 balance.

Nope took about 3-5g of that a day for 2 months did nothing for me except sweaty boot rash

They're all like "Stop spraying me with ink, Zoidberg!" "Put on pants, Zoidberg!" "Don't touch our fancy box, Zoidberg!"

I agree, I've never heard of it making your acne worse, I find that hard to believe, and the pills probably weren't good. Also, maybe you were taking omega 3/omega 6 combo pills which is not what you want. You want to take straight omega 3 tablets, i take 4 a day, and it has worked wonders for my skin.

i've been taking 3 pills of 1200 mg of omega 3 ever since i started the regimen. i'm definitely seeing results, i don't know if its from the bp or the fish oil, or both.

My problem area does get more red and swollen, even when I don't break out actual acne, after I eat salmon, so I think it might not be that unusual that people respond badly to omega 3. I read the reverse saying that we consume too much omega 3 instead of omega 6. I hope I'm not on crack...

Although it is true that results vary, I should mention that I take 25,000 IUs of beta-carotene everyday and coconut oil and I'm 10 months post-accutane with still no breakouts and a had "severe cystic acne" on my face and "acne conblongata" severely on my back for 6 years
