Thank you for the lovely response! I think I may be getting too much omega 6s, but at least I know and can be sure to buy the omega 3 next time smile.gif
What's working for me:

Status: 98% clear

Diet:
-Avoiding gluten. Small portions of rice, sweet potatoes, potatoes and quinua for carbs.
-No milk, but I do enjoy small quanities of other full fat dairy
-Lots of fruits, veggies, water, eggs, fish, chicken, turkey, and occasionally red meat
-Green smoothies a few times a week
-Green tea everyday

Supplement:
-1000 IU D3 on non-sunny days. Will up it to 4000 again come fall.
-Zinc, 50 mg twice a week
-Omega 3, 3 times per day


Routine:

Evening- remove makeup with a few drops of jojoba oil, clean with hemp oil soap, moisturize with a bit more jojoba oil.
-Sleeping for a minimum of 8 hours a night, in darkness
-Walking the dog everyday and yoga once a week

Eating as healthy and organically as possible, applying only natural products to body, stressing less, exercising more, getting sunshine, camping, laughing lots.

Yeh i'm pretty sure that these capsules are Omega-3 only, there is no mention of omega-6 on the label.
I'll try and find a local shop which stocks them for future purchases.

That works, as long as they have a high shelf turnover. Two places I'm fond of are Swansons and Vitacost, both have pretty great reviews and customer service, as well as a wide selection of vitamins from different brands. Good luck!

Iherb is also a good website. I do most of my ordering through there.

Not to complicate manners, but krill oil may be something of interest. There are some fairly unique properties (astaxanthin antioxidant, phospholipid form omega 3 versus triglyceride in fish).

Do peanuts cause a problem for acne does anyone know?
It's just that I'm think of eating quite allot due to their high protein content, and also containing vitamins B and E.

Day 5:

Reduction in redness was quite noticeable today, not sure if any actually pimples have gone or if the lighter tone of them makes it look that way, hopefully this progress will continue.

1 picture today as I have used up all my uploading space:
