This may sound way too good to be true (and you know the old saying...), but more than just a few significant studies (plus my own experiencse) are placing a connection between taking vitamin C orally and the prevention of acne.
Vitamin C is considered a "super vitamin" because it plays such a key role in boosting the immune system and preventing infection. In order to reap the possible antibacterial benefits of taking vitamin C supplements, it's recommended that you take 1,000mg to 1600mg, three times per day. A few other supplements that seem to work well alongside vitamin C in the prevention of acne are: vitamin E, vitamin B complex and zinc.
Before I even found out about these studies, I'd starting taking the above mentioned supplements, and I can tell you that's it made an amazing difference in my skin. Rarely do I experience a breakout anymore; even at that 'special' time of the month. If I do happen to get a breakout, it is so small and basically undetectable. I can defintely deal with that!
Of course, always check with your doctor before taking any supplements. If he/she gives you the 'green light', then go for it. Clear skin may be closer than you think. ;-)
Question: If you experience breakouts, is there anything you've found out of the ordinary to help treat them? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Thanks!
