I’m trying something new, a vitamin regimen! I’m taking the recommended daily dose of Vitamin A everyday with my lunch. I also started cutting open the capsules and applying it directly to my skin. I’m using Jamieson Vitamin A capsules since they contain natural carrier ingredients (soybean oil, etc).
My internet research has shown that some people have had success clearing their acne with a similar regimen. I don’t plan on keeping this up forever as Vitamin A can build up to toxic levels over time (especially if taking more than the recommended dose, so just don’t). I’ll be keeping this up for a month or so to see if there’s any improvement. If there is I might continue for a few months hoping for lasting results.
Apparently it can reduce the amount of oil the skin produces which will then reduce the amount of blocked pores and acne. So far I’ve noticed my skin texture is improved after around one week of use. The skin that isn’t affected by acne looks more smooth and pores are less visible. I’m still dealing with (some, but less) acne. I read that part takes at least a few weeks before seeing major improvement *crosses fingers*.
I’m using one capsule in the morning as moisturizer (my oily skin doesn’t need more) and two capsules at night (drinks it up overnight). Side note: don’t forget the SPF during the day since it can increase sensitivity to sun exposure.
I’ll keep you posted! I’m taking other supplements alongside so let me know if you’re interested in knowing more about that.
