Vitamin C Made My Acne Worse

Recommended Posts

I have suffered with adult hormonal cystic acne for the past 10 years now. It started when I was 23 and it hasn't stopped without birth control (Loestrin 24) involved. Now, my husband and I are trying to conceive and all hell has broken loose!

Hi losingconfidence2, I moved this topic to the Diet and Holistic health forum, hopefully you might get better answers here in terms of Vitamin C making things worse for you.

I don't think you have conclusive evidence to suggest it's the vitamin C. It's quite a benign molecule. A citrus sensitivity sends far more likely and could certainly lead to cysts. You may also be sensitive to other spices, or to a component of commercially prepared spices.
