I'm 22 years old and i've just graduated from university where i've suffered with acne for the entire 4 years and well beforehand, I would say my acne started at 16 years old. My mum was looking on the internet and found this website and it intrigued us enough that I have since been to Holland and Barrett to buy some Vitamin D3 supplements (25mg/1000IU). In the past, I have had numerous appointments with my GP who has prescribed me on a variety of medicines (namely Oxytetracycline) in order to cure my acne however it flares up within 2 weeks of taking the tablets. I suffer especially bad with my acne in the winter months (aka. now) and I have been taking the D3 supplements for just under a week, and I am already starting to see slightly enhanced results in my skin. Namely, my skin glows more, the acne on my cheeks and forehead has most definitely reduced and I am therefore optimistic that with prolonged use of these tablets I will start to see a visible improvement in my skin. Price wise: Holland and Barrett are currently offering one bottle of the D3 tablets for about £5 and you get another bottle for 1p. So, obviously I bought two bottles which has now given me a 6 month supply on the proviso that you take one-a-day.
Any acne sufferers: It is absolutely definitely worth a go! TRY IT!

Im trying to stop taking all the vitamins I have been taking for years , because they arent working to rid my acne, and have started eating healthier foods, fruit n veg that contain all the good vitamins that are suppose to help rid acne.

It seems like vitamin D3 works like isotretinoin when it comes to 1) the time that It takes in order to start noticing changes 2) the Initial breakout 3) sebum reduction .... I will try this approach!

After 3+ months of D2 supplementation, my level has gone from 20s to 82! This is the total D level, but my D3 is <4 according to the lab results. Does anyone know if only D3 can help with skin problems? Now I'm not deficient anymore, but my D3 levels are still low.
I don't think D3 supplements are supposed to cause an initial breakout, are they? Because I keep breaking out on them, that's why I got prescription D2.
