Vitamin B5 is the only acne treatment I've ever felt optimistic about. Usually I assume that a product, routine etc. won't help my skin at all or if it does, only minimally. However, the success rate is the highest I've ever seen for an acne treatment(maybe besides accutane) and really, hope is the only thing that's going to get me through this. Luckily, my hopes are beginning to be realized.
I 've been taking vitamin B5 for about two weeks now(I've worked up to three grams and went a few days without it once I ran out) and my back is much less oily and even close to being clear. The skin on my face reacted differently for most of the past two weeks. I broke out more than usual on my face with relatively small pimples that would disappear soon after they emerged on the surface. The last few days have been a bit more promising for my face as I have not broken out at all. I've even stopped using differin so that my skin doesn't get even drier than it tends to be. Again, no breakouts.
So far I 'm pretty happy with the results. I hope that my pores will start to tighten soon and that the texture of my skin will start to smooth out. Have any of you tried vitamin B5? How long did it take you to get completely clear skin?
