Hey people i posted a while ago about mucusless diet which cleared me but since i have exams at moment was kind of hard to stick to. However, because i didnt want to get sick during exam time i have been taking a vitamin C supplement that has bioflavonoids too (anyone from england it’s Holland and Barrett 1000mg non timed release) and within maybe 3 weeks it’s really clearing my skin, it looks very ‘radiant’ too (sorry to sound like a L’oreal advert)
I read on the net somewhere before thatr vitamin C can block the activity of the enzyme alpha-5-reductase which allows testosterone to be converted into evil DHT and so acne. The enzyme is much more present in the skin of acne-sufferers so maybe in some cases vitamin c can at least tackle some of the root cause.
Also ive been under quite a bit of stress as its my 2nd yr degree exams and i was eating sugary cereal, lots of starches etc too and i only came up with a few pimples that are starting to go now im not stuffing my face (food has big effect on my skin). I am trying to eat a bit more mucusless too which definitely helps. So thanks to these vitamins (i upped the dose to 10g a day divided up i.e. 10x 1000mg. This works very well) i am really looking forward to the holidays. Also like B5 vitamin C is water soluble so you can tell if youre taking to much if you get diarrhea. You may have expensive urine too :lol i have no probs so far though.
