Why do ALL vitamin c supplements break me out?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering does anybody know why all vitamin c supplements break me out? Pills, powder, the lot. 

I wanna take them to help with collagen production with scar treatments I'm getting done aswell as gum issues I have.

I'd really appreciate any pointers for this one, peace out

were all different but i remember hearing any vitamins containing iodine are bad for people with acne ( it can cause breakouts)

from what i understand, most standard vitamins have added  ingredients and  flavouring/sweetener. it could be something in the vitamin does not agree with you?

have you tried pure vitamin c?

Hey, yeah I've tried all sorts, would drinking lemon juice day be equally as effective?

Yep, one lemon contains half the RDA of Vitamin C so two lemons will cover you (or broccoli for example).
