You can search the web for information on that...

However, if you're looking to use B5 as a treatment for acne,you have to consume a high dose (smoething like 5000% daily value) and I doubt you can get that through foods alone.

Wouldn't hurt to look it up though.
My skin seems to have cleared up for the past 2 months, after 2 years of recurrent mild-moderate acne. I used to get a lot of random cysts and nodules.

What could've cleared me up? I've stopped using harsh cleansers with BP and SA. I now use Purpose gentle cleanser only in the evening because I have to wash off my makeup. In the morning, I wash with water only. I've also stopped using the Becca concealer I had been using. I believe it was causing me recurrent cysts in the same area - it was a vicious cycle. I began using Jane Iredale's make up and they haven't caused me any acne as far as I'm aware of.

Also, I've stopped eating peanuts or food containing peanut ingredients. I had never suspected that peanut was causing my acne because I did not react to it in high school. However, I suppose the chemistry of our bodies change over time. I'm not certain that peanuts were causing my acne, and I can eat a handful of peanuts as a test, but I don't want to deal with a break out when my skin is clearing up :P

Anyway, I hope this snippet was somewhat helpful to someone.

B5 is found in foods (if you eat a healthy largely unprocessed diet), however it is pretty delicate. any processing/cooking/storing eliminates a large quantity of B5 from the food. This wasn't a problem when our ancestors picked food at about the time of eating, but since our salads sit in the grocery stores and are transported significant distances, you'd be best off taking a multivitamin (your diet is likely short on other B vitamins as well) that includes a decent amount of B5 (though you should still eat a healthy diet).
99.5% Clear (skin gets 'congested' PMS week, but no actual breakouts)
---------------------------
Fragrance-Free Baby Wipes + a few drops Rimmel Makeup Remover solution
3/4 AHA Toner* & 1/4 Glycerin (cotton pad) -- good toner, moisturizer, and makeup base (use less glycerin if not under makeup)
Occasional Treatments (2-3x/week): Exfoliating bp wash* in shower, 2.5% bp lotion* at night
CoverGirl TruBlend Powder Foundation
---------------------------
* = Klear Action Kit (Pro-Activ knockoff)
---------------------------
Gluten-free diet (for non-acne reasons, but it seems to have cleared my acne)
