Vitamin B Complex for Acne

Eggs are a great source of Vitamin B Complex. You can also get Vitamin B Complex in the form of supplements.

Vitamin B Complex can work to improve overall skin health and even reduce acne and breakouts.  Increasing the amount of Vitamin B complex in your body can improve energy, amino acid metabolism, and facilitate steps required for cell division. Vitamin B complex reduces the possibility of getting pimples and blackheads, because it increases protection against skin bacteria. Vitamin B complex cannot work by itself, though!

You need to help by washing your face properly twice a day, removing all makeup before sleeping, avoiding stress, and keeping chemicals and hair products off of your face.
