  1. If you have trouble with fats it may be liver congestion? It is responsible for breaking down fats and I know liver problems can cause acne. Try Milk Thistle or other liver support supplements. Also, vitamin D really helped with my acne so I hope you get good results too
  2. I started seeing a difference within the first week. My skin immediately started getting drier and started peeling. I've used all sorts of brands. Almost all of them work the same, except one time when I bought discounted gel caps. So now I don't use gel caps, only hard pills.
  3. Just wanted to update everyone and say I have been taking Vitamin D for 7 months now and have consistently clear skin. I tried to wean myself off of it by lowering my dosage by a third and my acne returned within 2-6ish days the few times I tried to do this. I have to keep taking high amounts of Vitamin D long term if I want to maintain my clear skin.
  4. Here are some quotes from studies about using Vitamin D for acne. VITAMIN D IN THE TREATMENT OF ACNE CHARLES A. SIMPSON, M.D.; FRANCIS A. ELLIS, M.D.; HAYDEN KIRBY-SMITH, M.D. "Doktorsky and Platt2 reported improvement in 100 per cent of 35 patients with acne after a month’s treatment with 2,500 to 5,000 U. S. P. units of vitamin D daily. There was 75 to 80 per cent improvement in 90 per cent of the cases, but in 10 per cent relapses occurred within ten days after the treatment was stopped.
  5. Vitamin D itself cured my acne. If I stop taking it for a few days, the oil comes back just the way it used to. I do take it with Vitamin K2. I do it for this reason: Vitamin D3 increases the calcium in your blood, and Vitamin K2 takes the calcium from your blood and tells it to go into your bones. If you take Vitamin D3 without taking Vitamin K2 you might start getting calcium building up in your arteries which can be dangerous. Previous to Vitamin D I tried many things. Topicals, like Afri
  6. Made me have a bad breakout after having clear skin for months

    I have been taking Vitamin D3 for 2-3 months which dried my skin and cured my acne. I had 99% clear skin. My dad told me if I'm taking Vitamin D3 I should also take Magnesium with it for health reasons. I have had horrible sleeping patterns which Magnesium is supposed to help with. I thought, sure, why not, I have clear skin, might as well work on the rest of my health now. After two days of taking 300mg/day I got greasy skin and a bad breakout. I didn't realize what was causing it till I had ta
  7. Thank you! I haven't noticed a big effect on my skin by removing dairy from my diet.
  8. Here are my before and after photos. I don't want to be identifiable, so I'm doing a close crop.
  9. I am a 26 year old 120lb female and I live in Canada. I had cystic acne for 13 years that got worse as I was ovulating every month. It appeared to be hormonal acne. My skin and hair were also exceptionally greasy. When I wore makeup it would slide off after a few hours. My nose would look like someone put butter on it. My pores were large and wide open because of all the grease. I would have 4-5 cysts at a time with a nose full of black and white heads, and little bumps along my temples, cheeks,
  10. I hope you realize you'll OD if you keep this up. That amount is to only be taken for extremely deficient people for maybe a week. Since you probably didn't get tested, you have no idea if that is the case. If it helps with oil that much, go in the sun for 20 minutes without sunscreen daily and you'll make the same amount of D without worrying about OD'ing (pun). Where did you pull this fact from? You would have to take more than 10 000 IU per day for three months to see an overdose. Som
  11. Vitamin D dried out my greasy skin and greasy hair and stopped my acne

    I had cystic acne for 13 years that got worse as I was ovulating every month. It appeared to be hormonal acne. I of course tried so many things that didn't work. Then one day I read about vitamin D3 and a week after taking it my acne was gone. I take 7000 IU per day. I am a 120lb female. The more I take the drier my skin is which is what stops my acne from happening. The first two weeks that I took it, my skin started peeling a lot. I loved it. The peeling made my hyperpigmentation go away faste
