What vitamins help prevent and heal acne?

vitamins and acne

If you are healthy and have a good diet, vitamins will not cure your acne. Nevertheless, some vitamins may help with skin health and supplement your basic anti-acne treatment (effective clinically proven medical-grade creams and gels).

Vitamins that are relevant to your skin health are vitamins D, Vitamin B5, and Zinc which is actually a mineral.

Vitamin D: helps clear acne by stimulating the production of cathelicidin and defensins. These peptides support the immune system in fighting off acne-causing bacteria. They also help regulate the skin’s oil production.

Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): is naturally found in a wide variety of meat, legumes, vegetables, and grains. Vitamin B5 also supports skin health. If your diet isn’t as well-balanced as it should be, adding this supplement could help clear up acne.

Zinc: Many people with acne will benefit from Zinc addition. Is known to promote skin, hair, and nail health. Scientific studies show that people with acne have lower levels of zinc in their bodies.
