Roaccutane is just one treatment that has been clearing complexions for years. And while this medication has proven beneficial for some, others have yet to find success with prescription acne cures. Cue vitamins for acne, the natural treatment options for those looking to banish blemishes sans traditional medicine.

 

Vitamins A, E, and B3, as well as zinc, have been proven to fight acne, says Marisa Garshick, MD, FAAD, at Manhattan Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. These natural alternatives may tend to take longer than prescription drugs to clear blemishes (it can take up to two months to see a difference), but they are less likely to cause an adverse reaction. However, Garshick notes that side effects from vitamins are very real, especially if the dosage is incorrect. To ensure that you are following the correct natural treatment for acne, she recommends talking to a doctor before adding supplements to your diet. With that said, vitamins for acne can be extremely effective and are worth giving a try. For the natural acne remedies as told to us by dermatologists, keep on reading.
