Week 1 on Vitamin D3, Saw Palmetto, and Stinging Nettle

Hi all,

I've been inspired by so many progress posts on this site, that I decided it was time for me to contribute to the community as well. I am a 32-year-old female who suffers from moderate but consistent hormonal acne. I take no oral birth control but have a Mirena IUD. My breakouts include cysts and white heads. Last week I started taking the following for my adult, hormonal acne:

  • Vitamin D3 (4,000iu)
  • Saw Palmetto (500mg)
  • Stinging Nettle (500mg)

I also started taking the following to combat excessive bruising on my arms and legs:
  • Vitamin C (1,000mg)

And for the past year I have been taking:
  • L-Lysine (2,000mg)
  • Women's Daily Multivitamin Gummies

Here is my progress thus far. Hoping to track and share my progress weekly. Fingers crossed for results and patience. :)

Day 1

Day 7

It's too soon to really see any results, but at least psychosomatically, my acne seems to be "drying out" more quickly. I've had bout 8 new pimples this week, but it's quite possible they were already there and just hit the surface this week.

For week 2, I am considering adding the following into my new supplement regimen:
  • Evening Primrose Oil (1,300mg)
  • Calcium (1,000mg), Magnesium (500mg), Zinc (25mg)

Stay tuned, and please let me know if you have any questions or advice!
