So i am planning to add Vitamin B5 for my oily skin and acne overall, and Fish oil for acne too. I am nearly totally clear after 8 weeks today on The Regimen, im sure the supplements im taking are helping a lot too. Im not totally clear yet, but im getting there, and i mostly just have dark spots (PIH) from past acne now, but oily skin is now a serious problem, it always has, but i am starting to care about it now, and i think my skin is just more oily now than it has in the past.
I cannot seem to find Vitamin B-5 anywhere, only mostly B-12 and sometimes i see B-6, but absolutely no pure B-5. Do they even make B-5 alone? Why is this? I know B-5 is actually derived from Pantothenic Acid, but even searching for that yields very little results, the only places to buy it is online supposedly. Anybody seen it in stores, any store at all, please leave it in the comments below. I tried looking at Target, Wal-Mart, etc. but i still will try Trader Joes, CVS, and Mother's.
Also, how much B-5 should i take each day? I cannot find a reasonable amount for acne anywhere, totally lost on that. How many mg's or IU's?
Lastly, what Fish oil should i take? I have very little knowledge on this supplement, should i look for just Omega-3 pills or liquid? Or should i look for Fish Oil pills/liquid specifically, if so, what kind, like Cod Fish Oil or what? How much should i take? Any brand recommendations? I had previously been taking THIS, one packet a day, but they are kinda expensive and run out fast, and mostly, i am not sure if that is enough or the "right kind" of Omega-3 or fish oil.
Please help!! Thanks in advance.
