I am curious. Has anyone else like me broke out over Vitamin D? I was taking 800 IUs per day. I know 2 weeks is not a very long time, but I had to stop because it was making everything worse.
I have decided to read and follow the Clear Skin Diet, and interestingly Vitamin D is not mentioned. Here is my new regimen to regulate my hormonal levels, other than oral contraceptives:
Chromium 500 mg, Vitamin A 2000 IU, Cinnamon, Calcium/ Magnesium/ Zinc (Zinc- 15), Lipoic Acid, and finally probiotics. I am also cutting out sugar and carbohydrates and keeping a clear skin dietary log.
**Correct, I meant to say "I woke up with NO new zits after stopping Vitamin D." It's definitely not the answer for me.

Vitamin D is not really a naturally sourced nutritional found in standard milk. As a result, vitamin D is usually added in. Commercially purchased milk, soy milk and also rice milk included in containers tend to be found to incorporate vitamin D.
Cod liver oil
Cod liver oil has been put in the listing of food resources for vitamin D. Aside from currently being a high method to obtain vitamin D, it is usually discovered to be loaded with different wellness improving nourishing substances such as vitamin A as well as omega-3 efa's.
Egg yolk is available in the collection of normal food resources for vitamin D. Nevertheless, it is not a great choice for all those troubled with high-cholesterol.
Though, uncooked fish is certainly one of the top food resources for vitamin D, cooking food accurately prior to taking in it is strongly recommended to avoid a myriad of parasitic illness. Besides preparing food over hot temperature, be sure to prevent deep frying, alternatively go with baked as well as barbequed fish for healthy and balanced preparing food.

So how much vitamin d per day is safe? Is vitamin d3 just as potent as regular vitamin d?

Atlanta, thank you for sharing with us your success with Vitamine D.
I only want to add for those who think that probably they don't have too much sun where they live, that I live in Ibiza (Spain) 365 days of sun, and I still suffering from severe cistyc acne.

I am not sure if taking vitamin d3 helped with my acne, but definitely it gave me constant energy. I don't feel tired at all throughout the day. No need for coffee or energy drinks which is amazing!

I've been taking vitamin D3 for about a week now. It's too early to tell anything regarding my skin, and I'll post here again when I feel more confident if it is or is not working. However, it has definitely lifted my energy levels!

So I decided to give vitamin D a try, ive got very low levels. Just had my first pill today, i will see how this goes.
My acne is mainly comedonal nothing cystic, but a lot of clogged pores and oil secretion.

I'm on my 3rd day of vitamin d3 im taking 5,000 UI. I'm till getting acne am going to up the dose to 10,000 UI to see if the breakouts stop.

Most of the posts here never updated with how their treatment went. Total bummer.

I'll chime in that it did minimal stuff for me. It's also important you don't od. My body gets very sick if I take more than 1,000IU. Zinc didn't solve the issue, but it did way more for me than D3 did, and I buy the top of the line expensive stuff.

I just wanted to share my experience. I have been taking about 3,000 IU a day and I have seen a tremendous difference in my skin. It is healing right now so it's not pretty but I finally have smooth spots! My acne is caused by very oily skin and this helps dry it out. I may go down to 2,000 IU because it is pretty drying. 1,000 does nothing for me. That's the amount I have in my multivitamin and it doesn't do much for oil.

I have been taking vitamin D (around 1600 - 2400 IU) with selenium zinc and vitamin a on and off for a couple of months now. I always find that if i stop taking them, my skin gets worse. But then again, this combo never cured anything for me either.
How much zinc and vitA are you taking?

I took lanolin/olive oil-based Now Foods D3 5,000 IU once and it broke me out the very next day (The day I had a job interview. Sucks.) I also experienced some bloating/gas. Some people say dry capsules work better so I've ordered some and am giving it a shot. Hopefully it works this time, if not then nope.
