Useful Supplements to Clear Your Acne

On December 23, 2010, in Acne Diet Tips, by Jennifer M. Gillies

Although it certainly is useful for you to use some natural remedies to clear up your existing acne on the outside, until you take care of the imbalance on the inside of your body you are not going to totally solve the problem. There are several ways that you can do this but one of the easiest is for you to make sure that you are supplementing properly on a regular basis. There are several vitamins and minerals that have been found to be deficient in acne sufferers.

One example of a supplement that you should consider taking is vitamin A. Not only is this going to help your body in amazing ways, it is also going to help your acne as well. Vitamin A is an antioxidant, that is in existence and it will help to remove the free radicals that are damaging the cells in your body. It also helps with the healing capacity of the skin, reducing scarring. This vitamin can go a long way in making sure that the acne that you are experiencing is taken care of from the inside out. However vitamin A in high amounts can be toxic so don’t overdo it. You can also increase your intake in the diet.

Along with taking vitamin A on its own, you should also take a blend of vitamins that are going to provide these antioxidant benefits to your body. There are several good products that are available on the market that accomplish this but you should make sure that you are taking vitamin C, zinc and selenium on a daily basis, perhaps in a blend. You really can’t overdo it with antioxidants so make sure that you’re getting plenty of them daily and they will help to keep your skin clear.

Finally, you can supplement with green tea as this will also provide you with additional antioxidants. Green tea has been used for thousands of years because of its natural healing properties. Although it is possible for you to take this in a capsule form, it is better if you get some natural green tea and drink it on a regular basis. Just make sure that the tea that you obtain is not the commercialized green tea that is available in many stores. Having authentic green tea from Asia thats not over processed is going to be what is going to make the biggest difference on your skin.
