[QUOTE=beachlover1133]Hi everyone,

Long story short, I've had acne for about 11 years now...severe for the past 6 months. I just graduated from college and, as you all know, it has completely taken over my life. I have been to 3 derms, done every prescription/OTC on the planet, and I still have terrible skin.

After spending hours reading these board, I've decided to try the only thing I haven't explored...vitamins. So far it seems like [I]B5, zinc, vitamin A, and Inositol [/I] are the most popular. So my question is, can I just take all of these at the same time? I take a daily vitamin that contains A, B, and zinc.

Also, does anyone have preferences in regards to vitamins? Any advice would be [B]greatly[/B] appreciated.

Thanks so much & good luck everyone.[/QUOTE]
hi,
I dont have perfect skin by all means...i still break out alot and nothing seems to clear up my skin. I have read alot about vitamins that help acne..i take a multi vitamin (u should look for one without iodine in which may give u acne). I alos take B complex and green tea is a great one. I think that may have helped my skin alot. Also..evening primrose oil helped me (i need to buy more!)..this made my friends skin clear up completely! Plus..milk thistle..this cleans out ur liver and is supposed to be great for your skin. Its very expensive tho which is why im not taking it.
I also went to a doctor about my skin and he didnt think it was that bad and told me to wash twice a day and take BETA-SITOSTEROL. I took it for 2 months but moved country so have stopped taking it. It may help u!
Wish u luck!

Hey bahamagirl,

Can you tell me about your beta sitosterol? what brand did you take and how much. I am a guy and I know im supposed to take less than a girl does. Where did you order yours from? What reason did your doctor tell you to take it for? Do you have very oily skin? Did it decrese oil? Thanks
