Does Vitamines really help with Acne?

sure they are, I'm taking Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) it's known to help acne, also Selenium and Zinc

I just started taking Vitamin B5 so I can't tell you the results, but with the Selenium and Zinc it's definitely helped control my pimples , but I also don't eat that much sugar/coffee/carbs/starchy foods, I eat a lot of vegetables smile.gif

Vitamin A is also great for the skin after the initial outbreak...lol... but u have to be careful with how toxic it can be... but i use to take vitamin A and it was fine for me...

also if u were goin to take vitamin A... u pretty much have to take vitamin E with it so it absorbs much quicker and better... just a thought...lol

I started taking vitamin c and vitamin a about a week ago. I take 4-5 grams of vitamin c a day. I have 1000mg tablets, so I just take one every 2 hours (vitamin c has a half life of 2 hours). I think the vitamin a maybe caused a bit of an initial breakout, but the overall color and health of my skin does look a bit better I think. I'll have to give it more time to be sure though. I don't really take much vitamin a, not nearly enough to be toxic. I read from many places that for vitamin a to be toxic in most people, you'd have to take upwards of 300,000 IU a day for an extended period of time for it to cause toxicity. I take 2 8000 IU capsules in the morning and 2 at night.

i take a different kind of vitamin c called ester-c 1-2 g every day i try to split them every 2 hrs because loganruns says that vit c half life is 2 hours.

i like to take emergenC lite for vit. C. it has 7 different mineral ascorbates, so you will absorb them much better. plus it will help replace electrolytes, and has a lot of important minerals too.

I just bought regular cvs brand because I hate to spend money. They're 1000mg pills with ascorbic acid and rose hips.

It would be good to take vit.C, vit.E and zinc at the same time?

I thought about them because vit.C is known to make the skin healthier and such, vit.E because it will help with red marks and Zinc for acne, of course...

What do ya think?

I take zinc, vitamin C and vitamin E, and up until recently I was taking selenium as well. I found they did make a difference, a lot of the blotchiness on my cheeks has been greatly reduced.
