I got the pure vitamin e oil, 70,000 I.u planning on putting some on my post acne marks.

Will it help? Or will it just clog my pores?

Any experience with it? (I've been taking vitamin e tablets too but nothing's happened as of yet!)

Thanks

Hey, I´ve tried that.. It helps with the healing quite a bit (but not more than other oils like rosehip oil or shea butter).. It breaks me out like crazy though.. Be careful with it... Rather use it as a spot treatment...

Hi Little Mermaid88,

Personally, I like pure vitamin e for under eyes only...I've been using it since my teens and have no under eye lines/ crows feet because of it (But I also don't squint/ I am very gentle with my eye area/ and I try to smile without squinting my eyes as much as possible)...however, on wounds, vitamin e can prevent healing according to some studies....but I think on "healed" scars, it can assist...

Experiment with using it on your skin, as we each respond differently to topicals...however, my skin doesn't respond well to vitamin e on it everyday (only my eyes approve of it)...in my case, my face prefers beta glucan liquid from New Directions...but there are so many good products out there, I haven't tried these but they look okay judging the ingredients like Pure Skin Junkie, Dermaefface FX7, DNA Scar Therapy [DNA EGF Renewal], Meladerm, Mederma etc

Just research the product's ingredients thoroughly and examine as many reviews for the product as possible to determine which to use...

I know that if I don't improve my skin 100% using my present treatments, I'll experiment with other dermatological topicals until I achieve a 100% success rate.

Hope this helps!

I strongly believe that Vitamin E will do nothing for your scars. There is a doctor here (Dr Phillip Artemi I think) and many other doctors who have done studies and have found Vitamin E to be completely ineffective for treating acne scarring. I would never put it on my skin. It's a waste of time, money and effort. Unfortunately there are no topicals out there that will help with scarring when used alone. :(

 

Like fad diets, vitamin E has been getting a lot of hype about its use in treating acne scars. It's all false unfortunately.

Invicible scars is a topical treatment and its hypoallergenic. I used it for my scars and found it working pretty well. You can give it a try. It is really good or you can try reading its reviews. I found it working actually. Hope it helps. Good Luck with your scars.

I came across this review on google

http://www.glamazini...gmentation.html

I don't know how successful it will be on old marks, but it might work on new ones.

Oil in general clog pores, so I would think that this oil would clog your pores. 

If you are acne prone I say get a cream instead and look for something oil free.

Just my 2 cents.
