I've never used EPO, but intead I take 1000 mg of Borage Oil everyday. It has a higher content of GLA (the good-for-your-skin-stuff :)) per serving than EPO and I find it works much better for me.

I do know that some prefer EPO over borage oil. I don't believe there would be an initial breakout if you do decide to start supplementing EPO, so I'd say give it a shot. Take with food!

I just wanted to add that I've been taking EPO for years and it helps immensely. If I miss taking it for a day or 2 I can almost always tell because I get a little breakout on my chest area. I am not sure if the EPO helps me because of its supposed hormonal balancing properties, or because it helps to balance the essential fatty acids in my skin cells directly, but either way I recommend trying it!
