Supplements to help dodgy skin

(6 Posts)

I've always had dodgy skin. Sensitive, dry, reactive and blemish prone. I've got it under control with my skin care regime and by drinking a lot more water, eating better ect but I'm still plagued with really sore spots along my jaw line which are large, red pulsating spots until they're popped then the go away very slowly
Are there any supplements I can take to help limit these spots? I used to take vitamin e and evening primrose capsules, I can't remember if they helped and this is a relatively new issue!!!
I'm 32, I don't want to be spotty...

evening primrose and starflower capsules work for me -1000mg, along with a healthy diet and lots of water. They help balance the hormones which cause these type of spots.

I take fish oil with was recommended as the best for skin. Not cod liver oil though just fish oil.

And as a moisturiser use la roche posay - effeclar duo. Its great stuff for problem skin. And after cleansing use a clearasil pad to wipe over skin before putting on the effaclar duo.

Thanks I'll get to the shops and buy some more stuff.
I use the clearasil pads and have changed by cleanser and moisturiser which has helped with the other skin issues but these spots seem quite hardy and dont go unless popped.

I'm the same age and had the same problem following a miscarriage earlier this year. Agnus castus supplements worked wonders. Seriously, I went from one huge bump every few days to zero in a month. I bought the drops on amazon for less than a tenner. Have stopped using now and the problem hasn't returned. I guess my hormones are more balanced.
