I tried this vitamin because I figured it was the only vitamin I hadn't tried for my acne. I had been taking zinc 50mg every now and then (and noticed that it also seemed to help) alongside a multivitamin (which contains about 530 mg vitamin A). The only big thing left to supplement that was known to help acne was vitamin A. I had been apprehensive since there are toxicity issues with this vitamin because it is fat soluble. I researched how much I could take without toxicity, and figured I wouldn't end up taking it all the time or in large amounts once my skin clears. I've been taking 2 (10,000IU) pills a day (spaced out), or one pill a day (depending if I remembered the second or if I ate something I knew had alot of beta-carotene or natural vitamin A in it). My scars and hyper-pigmentation are calming down. I haven't had any knew breakouts. I wish I had tried this sooner. I think this vitamin A is increasing the efficacy of my external skin care regime because my skin is obviously healing faster since using both the vitamin A and the Murad acne system. I read that taking zinc and vitamin C help to minimize the toxicity effects of vitamin A, so I have been taking both on an irregular basis alongside the vitamin A. I also read that taking vitamin A with fat increases absorption, so I take it alongside my fish oil supplements. I think my combination seems to be working =).Pros:
