There’s been much debate over the link between diet and acne-no, chocolate and greasy foods don’t cause breakouts-but a slew of anti-acne supplements have hit store shelves lately.
The key to stopping acne is keeping pores clear and bacteria at bay. While there’s no doubt that topical skincare plays a vital role, the active ingredients found in anti-acne supplements claim to tackle acne from the inside out. Among them-
•Vitamin A: Similar to how this ingredient promotes the skin-cell turnover that keeps skin looking fresh, it also helps prevent clogged pores that lead to pimples.
•Vitamin C: This vitamin helps in the wound-healing process, making it an integral part of any acne-clearing supplement.
•Zinc: This mineral purportedly helps reduce the appearance of the inflammation associated with breakouts.
If you are taking oral acne medication-or any prescription medication for that matter-check with your doctor to make sure the supplement you choose is compatible.
