Vitamins Bad for acne

Recommended Posts

Hi, are there any suppliments that are bad for acne? that will make it worse?

I am looking into FSC about face suppliments and just wondered if they will help my acne and if theres anything in them I need to worry about.

Also, I am on SSRI anti-depressants, anyone know if theres any probs with suppliments on these drugs.

I am thinking of taking thses plus clear complextion herbal tablets too

It's a hard question to answer because everyone is different.

For instance, a lot of people benefit from fish oil and zinc, but for me, they cause breakouts.

Well I don't know anything about SSRI's so you should check with your doc before taking anything else with them.

Before you talk to him/her though, do some research and find out what supplements you want to take, so you can ask specifically which ones are potentially safe/unsafe.

It is true that everyone will react differently. The poster above says fish oil and zinc break them out however I don't know what I would do without omega 3 fish oil! Some women swear by evening primrose oil - but it didn't agree with me at all. Trial and error =]
