There are also vitamin supplements that come in smaller doses designed to be taken throughout the day. Nature's Way Alive and Vitacost's storebrand imitation Viva are examples. The come in 3/day tablets or 6/day capsules. I was taking the tablets, but twice per day for a partial dose as a I eat well, especially my mid day meal. Usually. Then when the capsule form was on sale, I bought it instead and began to take it twice per day. Small dose, but it's a supplement to my good diet anyway. A just in case thing. And it makes the fairly expensive bottle last much longer.
There's also green smoothies and spirulina and such. Coconut water. Lemon & water plus a pinch of sea salt. Nettle Tea is high in minerals. Hibiscus high in vitamin C, iron, thiamine and good amounts of beta carotene and some other nutrients, plus anthocyanins and other phytonutrients. And many combinations to be made of the above. .

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