I take vitamin c , zinc, vitamin a , and vitamin e tablets everyday. Ok ive been on the regiem for over a year and it helped me a bit but i was always waking up with puss filled spots almost everyday.

i started taking vitamins about 2 months ago and my skin has completly cleared up , still cant belive it. i was still using the bp gel while taking them but i went on holdidays recently for 2 weeks and forgot dans gel and i didnt get 1 spot. when not using it. has this worked for anyone else?

I did notice that zinc cleared my skin too... 50mg a day.

Zinc will really help. However, I had to take 150mg a day for perfectly clear skin -- which I liked -- but I became sick at my stomach after taking them :P

i heard zinc can help too, but I tried it and unfortunately it did nothing for me.

good job though, i'm glad you found something that works for you. personally I haven't had any luck with supplements (although accutane is kind of like a mega-dose of vit a and that is helping me.)

Lambam, can you write down the how much you take of each vitamin. And do you take real vit A or is i beta carotene?

umm you REALLY REALLY REALLY need to go natural on the vitamin A trust me your body can handle so much more NATURAL vitamin A than the synthetic stuff, and at 6 mg's 2X's a day i dunno about that... at least look into it... if you go natural (with docs authority ofcourse) you could take as much as 500,000 IU's a day (i think thats like 50 or 500 mg's??)

What? do you actually think im gona go to the doctor and ask can i take vitamin a? why would i want to take 500,000 i.us when my skins doing fine now?

i do have read about some people clearing up with increased dosage of zinc and other vitamins.

for me, though, lambam's dosage aint enough.
