a lot of vitamins/minerals can help your skin(not Vitamin a!) try taking multivitamins if you're not on antibiotics, it won't hurt, and probably will help. o and water too, lots of it wink.gif

I have a multivitamin with vit k in it, but it's 10 micrograms (mcg) 10% of the recoomended DV, so i don't know if that would help, would it?

Because of an illness I have, my body hasn't been absorbing natual minerals, so now I'm on tons of supplements and because of all the sensitivities I have, on a rotation diet so I make sure I'm eating the right amount of everything I need, since I'm allergic to so many things its hard to find a balance to what I can eat.

I take

Chromium
Magnesium
Pantothenic Acid
Basic Elemental Minerals
Iodine
Zinc Citrate
Lithium

I notice an big improvement with my face when I stick strictly to my diet and supplements. But I'd speak to your doctor before you buy any of those kind of supplements, because there is such a thing as having too much of it in your body. And, for me, I break out mostly because I've been exposed to chemicals or foods I'm sensitive to.

I'm not sure exactly what you were trying to say, but those supplements I listed off are def. not for acne, they're because I'm really low on all of those minerals and they help me become a bit more healthy and stronger, as I'm def. not as healthy as an average person.

Don't take a multi-vitamin called Centrium Forte.

i took 4 days in a row and now i'm paying for it stilll a week after!
Gives you fucked up pimples, i don't know why maybe because of the iodine.

anyways i took it because i wanted its ZINC since i couldn't get zinc at local pharmacy (they had none) but it back-fired and gave me acne instead of making it better.

IF you take too many vitamins your body will just dispose of them....I don't know why people take so many, it's just a waste of money, whatever your body doesn't need, it gets rid of it. Now....for minerals thats a diffrent story, if you take too many of those it could lead to poisining.

That's not entirely true.

Vitamin A (Retinyl Parmitate) in large doses will kill you- in small doses (above 100% RDA) it appears to cause osteoporosis long-term, or atleast increase the chances, and there are some worries about many other toxic effects. It seems safer in the Beta Carotene form, but even there was a report of greater incidence of cancer in smokers...

Vitamin D- again toxic in large quantities.

Vitamin B6- neurotoxic if you take a high amount over a long period.

Vitamin B12- taking more won't help or hurt- it's limited by the body.

Calcium can lead to kidney stones and worse, but magnesium you can take as much as you want.

Selenium in large quantities will kill you, in small doses it appears to be an antioxidant. There's no RDA on this one.

Iron- kills you dead, by destroying your intestinal tract if you take a whole bottle at a sitting, but take the RDA and you'll be fine.

Zinc- lowers iron, so can cause anemia. Anemia can kill.

Vitamin C- seems relatively safe even in extreme doses- although it can cause diahrea.

Basically, don't greatly exceed the RDA, particularly on iron, B6, vitamin D, vitamin A. And I would keep any vitamin A (Retinol Parmitate) supplement *well* below RDA- it's a scary chemical. The rest aren't so crucial.

I've found that garlic applied on the outside of the skin seems to help.

You crush a bulb thoroughly, leave for a few minutes (a chemical reaction is triggered when you crush the bulb, takes a few minutes), then rub the juice to the affected area before bedtime. It tingles a bit, but it shouldn't hurt. It's a bit fiddly, you may experiment on the best way to do this. Make sure there's no garlic chunks sticking to the skin- probaby too much of a good thing.

Wash off in the morning.

Be very careful the first few times you try this- some people are allergic to garlic. It can burn the skin, so test it somewhere (like inside of elbow or behind the ear) first.

The only downside is that the smell may linger a bit, even after washing; but it hopefully won't give you that really nasty bad breath. I think the smell lingers because it penetrates the pore and helps kill the bugs there, but the smell isn't terrible I think.

It seems to stop it getting any worse, and the prevents acne in the area. It also drys the skin slightly, but not like benzoyl peroxide can. YMMV.
