I'm dealing with continued acne (although I only have one active at the moment) but my real problem is postinflammatory hyperpigmentation and very uneven skin tone.
I've just re-startd using Triacneal by avene but I'm quite keen on trying to help the PIH nutritionally.
Are there any vitamins or foods that assist with the body's ability to heal scars? (I don't know whether this is a ridiculous question or not so I'm just putting it out there!)
I'm already taking EPO (3g) spirulina (3g) and zinc.
I've been thinking about vitamin a or vitamin e (supplement) but would appreciate any input if there are foods/other supplements that promote healing.
I'm hoping to try and increase my protein intake as I think this might help too...

A lot of people on my raw food forum have talked about their scars vanishing through this diet.
I don't know if we are allowed to post other forums here, but if you search "raw food forum" you will find a few where you could get more info.
My old scars have definitely healed up a lot since doing this diet. ANd I'm not even 100% raw.

I need to look into that (I've already started looking at some forums) and have seen MSM mentioned.....
Anyone has any success with this as a supplement?

Hey deja, what kind of juicer do you use? I was thinking of starting to use one, but I don't know what kind to get and for how much.
Ooh yes flax seed (another RAW food btw) is amazing for skin. Ground sprouted flax and fresh raw carrots seem to have the most noticeable effect on my skin. A few days of drinking raw carrot juice and I really get a glow.

How well does it work for you? Does it do leafy greens? Thanks!
I have a hamilton beach, I forget the model but I think it's called "big mouth" or something like that. It's the one that you can put whole apples and what not in (although I never do, who wants juiced apple seeds?)
