Can anyone recommend supplements/vitamins?

Recommended Posts

I've been doing a lot externally with my skin (as well as internally: drinking more water, etc). But I was wondering if there was a "definitive" list of supplements (herbal or regular) and vitamins that can help in the fight/prevention of acne? Thanks.

I would say don't bother. Supplements can help, but the difference they make is pretty insignifigant IMO - there are better ways to care for your acne.

Many people have found taking high doses of zinc (up to 50mg per day) can have an effect on reducing their acne. You could try this for 1-2 months to see if there is any improvement.

I take a whole range of supplements, as do many other people on this forum. There was a thread circulating last week that referred to supplements that can help with acne - I would link it for you but I can't work the link device at the moment for some reason.

If you skip to around page 2 or 3 of the forum you should be able to find it. There's some good information contained in it.
