Many acne sufferers have gut damage. Damage to the intestines makes it more difficult to absorb vitamin A. The vitamin A that is obtained is used very quickly because of the damaged gut, which means vitamin A needs to be replenished more often.
To combat inflammation, the liver releases vitamin A.
Products like Accutane, and Retin-A utilize vitamin A as one of the most crucial ingredients. However, these treatments may further damage your body and your gut by killing off the good bacteria, and only providing temporary acne relief which may end up much worse sometime after the treatment is over.
