Acne Vitamin B Supplements
If you have acne, vitamin B supplements might be a remedy to try along with your normal skin care routine with the approval of your doctor.
Many people are actually deficient in Vitamin B and don’t know it, so you may want to ask your doctor to run some tests and see how your levels are.
The vitamin B family is not just one vitamin, but several. For example, some believe vitamin B6 can play a favorable role in fighting acne.
Vitamin B6 does many things, including to help metabolize steroid hormones and reduces skin sensitivity. Studies have been done that show a decrease in menstruation-related acne breakouts in teen girls. Good food sources of this vitamin include fortified cereal, baked potato, bananas, trout, spinach, sunflower seeds, roast beef and more. Rather than popping a pill, consider enriching your diet with a wide range of healthy foods to get the vitamins you need.
Vitamin B12 is another type of B vitamin found only from animal food sources, so vegetarians may be deficient and will want to take a B-complex vitamin. Taking a B-complex vitamin in the lowest dose available is considered safe, but it is still better to get your vitamins from the foods you eat. Vitamin B7 is biotin, important for healthy skin, hair and nails. Once again, this is found in any B-complex supplement.
In addition to trying Vitamin B, experiment with skin care products to see what works best for you.
If you are taking good care of your skin, eating well and still have acne that you can’t get rid of, see your dermatologist. He or she can try other treatments, for example there are now painless laser light treatments to help fight acne.
