30,000IU Vitamin D3 (gel caps) daily
100,000IU Beta Carotene daily
taken with fatty meal
ALL of us are acne free after three weeks of starting this.
18-20 year old university students. My acne wasn't that bad, but I had friends with faces full of cysts who now look like they've always had flawless skin. The majority of us have really poor diets (pizza most days) and don't exercise at all.
Now before all the replies come in about the huge doses - we understand the risk. Many experts on the Vitamin D council have said up to 30,000IU daily is absolutely fine, and the benefits outweigh the risks. Beta Carotene has its own risks, the only ones I have seen are linked to increase risk of lung cancer in smokers only.
The bottom line is simple - there are risks in taking every supplement however I can guarantee for the majority, having a flawless face is worth taking the risk and its truly a miracle what it's done to my friends faces and mine.
What's the point spending a load of money on face washes and make up? At that approach, you'll never get rid of your acne properly because you are only treating it externally - the real cause is internal!
It would be really interesting if some of you could try this out.
N.B. I tried this out with just the 30k Vit D3 which got me around 75% clear - the beta carotene did the rest and I have a really glowing complexion.
