#3455990 Vitamin D Has Cured Me Of Oily Skin And Acne

Posted by mazgan on 14 October 2014 - 07:08 PM

Hey there guys, I've been taking vitamin d3 (dry form, daily dosage of 2000 IU) for about a week now, and all I've experienced so far are new breakouts located around the mouth and chin areas (where I seldom break out usually). I've heard so many success stories about vitamin d3 that I thought I would give it a try, but it seems to have negative effects on my skin. I can't expose my skin to the sun because it turns red and irritated (I have hypersensitive and oily skin). Did any of you guys experience a "initial breakout" while on vitamin d3 pills during the first week or did your acne clear up right away? I'm thinking I should discontinue my intake of vitamin d3 if it still gives me new breakouts by the end of week 2. Also, my acne is not genetic (nobody in my family or even extended family has had or has acne) nor is it hormonal (I've had my testosterone and estrogen levels checked three times last year). I don't know what's causing my acne which I've had for 9 years since age 10. I thought I would outgrow it, but people keep telling me I won't, so I'm losing hope. Thank you for your replies, I appreciate

i didnt experience an "initial breakout", but i also didnt experience any change in my skin from taking vitamin d3.. so its not working for everyone.

its like alot of things where u hear about only the success stories, but u dont know for what % of the people who tried this it worked.

#3455694 Acne Scars Are Making Me Depressed

Posted by mazgan on 12 October 2014 - 09:49 PM


Scars aren't as bad as acne - no pain, no huge red bumps, no whiteheads, I could go on.
Yes scars are not ideal, but a large majority of people have them for whatever reasons. The people who make cruel comments have nothing else going on in their lives so they choose to make others upset with them. Even if your scarring is more moderate or severe, it shows how far you've come dealing with your acne, try and think positively. If anything, focus on one day going to see a derm yourself when you have the ability to, or maybe making a compromise with your parents about paying them back for scar treatments later on. I hope you find peace with your scars for now.



>>Please don't be depressed they are just scars be happy you are cured embrace everyday and live it to the fullest cause you never know when it may com

wow...just scars? its SCARS ON THE FACE. scars are way worse than acne. it stay forever on ur face no matter what

u do.

i think its better then having acne and im just saying dont let the scars ruin your life if you can help it cause you made it thru acne...chill

it pissed me off because u probally dont have any significant scarring, so u cant possibly understand. its like some1 who never had acne told u he understand whats its like having acne.. now u get it?


also, u shouldn't assume that just because i state that scars are worse (they are FOR LIFE) than acne, that i dont have active acne. and i am sure any1 with enough scarring would agree with me that scars are worse.

#3453751 I'm Really Pissed Off That The Medical Community Doesn't Seem To Take...

u see people getting lung cancer from smoking, or eating junk and eat bad eventually get heart attack, and people think its horrible.

but no1 finds it horrible when a teenager gets his life ruined because of acne, and there was nothing he did to get it. he ends up with mental problems , social problems, and scars all over thier face.

#3381680 What Helps Your Extremely Oily Skin? Sensible Answers Only.

Posted by mazgan on 10 September 2013 - 02:18 AM

sadly, the primary contributer to oily skin is genetic , the most important one is the sensitivity of ur oil glands to hormones.


so basicly if ur unlucky to get shitty genes u'll have to work really really really hard to balance ur hormones, there is no easy fix for this.


for me personally ive noticed a dramatic change in oiliness when i was taking accutane, but it faded when i stopped taking it.


also, one simple thing that i noticed helping, is a good sleep.
