Best Vitamins To Take?

5 posts in this topic

Hello everyone.

So I'm getting really desperate, as it feels like I've tried almost everything. Recently I've read about vitamins and how they can really cure/help some people's acne.

My esthetician has me on micellized Vitamin A... It's in liquid form. I've been taking it for about three weeks, and the first two weeks I was getting NO new pimples! That is the first time that has happened in months. I was thrilled. But last week I broke out like crazy. Not little pimples but really red and painful ones that extended far under the skin, but had heads.

I'm hoping that it isn't the Vitamin A, or maybe it's the vitamin clearing me out.. I don't know.

BUT ANYWAY. I'm thinking of starting to take tablets of Vitamin D3, as I've heard it has cured some people. What other vitamins should I take along with the D3 that would really amp it up? What brand of Vitamin D3 should I get?

Really hoping this works... I'm feeling really hopeless.

Btw I'm deathly allergic to fish, so I can't take the vitamin D3 tablets that have cod oil in them.

I think a basic multivitamin and a vitamin d3 is always a good choice, it's just a good "insurance" for basic health. Yea some people say that they cured their acne with just little vitamin d3 or something like that, I wouldn't put much faith in that. People just want to find that one magic pill that cures all the problems, there's so many different things that affects acne, it's propably a one in a trillion chance that you cure your acne and all other problems with just one vitamin or supplement.

Nt a bac multivitamin. One designed to be taken throughout the day.


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
