taking biotin usually causes people to breakout with severe cystic acne. i dont know why but when people take accutane or b5, theyre biotin levels become very low and this is what causes the dry skin. yes biotin is a vitamin, but i think it has some role in oil and sebum secretions. so less biotin = less oil.

^Huh. I've been taking biotin for a few months (2 maybe?) 1t = 1000 mcg per day. No reaction other than my hair and nails are growing - which is what I was going for. No skin improvement either.

I thought biotin was supposed to be great for your skin. Of course, that is just what I have heard and not evidence I have seen.
