Ever suffer from an acne breakout that wouldn’t go away no matter what you put on your face?
It’s frustrating. You wash your face five times a day, go through twenty skin creams and face washes, and try every skincare mask under the sun.
You cut chocolate out of your diet, go heavy on the concealer, and every day wake up hoping your skin has cleared up… only to find you’ve got a new zit.
We’ve all been there, and I know it’s frustrating and introverting as heck. But instead of putting that bag over your head, locking yourself in your room, or smothering your skin with cover-up and foundation, have you considered taking vitamins for acne relief?
Here at Innate Skin, we’ve discovered that nutrition plays a big role in clear skin. When developing our Clear Skin Vitamin Pack™, we found certain vitamins work wonders on getting rid of your acne.
If you want to be that girl with the clear, glowing skin who turns heads, gets compliments, and laughs when asked what foundation she uses (none, of course!) then read on! These vites will help you make that dream a reality.
Believe it or not, vitamin A has been used to treat acne since the late 1800s! It’s one of those housewife remedies that got swept up under the table as we moved further into the modern world and away from natural remedies.
Vitamin A is what helps your body grow new skin cells, strengthen your skin’s protective tissues and keep your skin from getting oily. If you’re not getting enough in your diet, you end up with layers of dead, oily, bacteria-infested skin on your face. No wonder you’ve got acne issues!
If you’re looking at adding some vitamins for acne to your diet, try picking out some vitamin A-rich foods when you go to the grocery store. There’s a great list of them in this article, Top 10 Foods Highest in Vitamin A from Health-Alicious-Ness.com.
Vitamin E is another one of those oldie-but-goodie vitamins for acne. It’s great for keeping your skin soft and moisturized and protecting against acne-causing bacteria.
Also, if you’re one of those people who can’t stop themselves from popping their pimples, you can do some damage control by breaking open a vitamin E capsule and smoothing it over your skin to prevent scarring and dark spots.
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
I may have saved this one for last, but if you could only pick one of these vitamins for acne, this is the one you should choose. It reduces stress, makes your skin less oily, counteracts hormonal imbalances, and helps control blood sugar levels!
High stress levels, hormonal imbalances, low-blood circulation and oily skin can all contribute to acne flare-ups, so by adding more vitamin B5 to your diet, you’re handling all four of these issues in one shot.
Keep in mind that it is important to supplement with vitamins in the right amounts when you are trying to treat acne. Too much or too little of a vitamin can even make your acne worse. There are also many other vitamins that help keep your body balanced and skin clear that you need in lesser amounts, so they are hard to supplement with. Using a high quality skin supplement such as the Clear Skin Vitamin Pack™ that has been formulated to keep your skin clear is the best choice.
