    Red face best antibiotic

    Vitamin b12 is said to positively affect the hormonal imbalance. i've been taking a pill a day for the last year (the first "good" year for me acne-wise since puberty).

    I've never used antibiotics for acne, and I believe that it should be the last resort. But I have used tea tree oil that was mentioned by some folks here.
    In my experience it does help of expedite healing of existing pimples. not sure if it can prevent future ones.

    lifting serums good for acne too?
    why would they be?

    Roaccutane worked wonders for my skin but my acne came back 6 months later. Thens i started using vitamin B12 and B5 and that has been working although i still get the occasional pimple or two.

    Some doctors think topical antibiotics arnt effective at treating acne. Apparently products which contain something called salicylic acid are the most effective. And benzoyl peroxide.

    Interesting article here about which products are the best at the moment (skip the first page or 2 about causes of acne!)

    Tetracycline and Roaccutane are the most the most powerful oral antibiotic for acne, as I know.


    I heard a lot of people who was treating the acnee with a combination between Roaccutane and Skinoren (Gel).

    Default Tetracycline worked wonders for me !

    I must say Tetracycline was the most suitable on my skin type. I had acne as a teen and saw a massive improvement after having Tetracycline.

    I find this a little bit confusing, I've never heard of any of these tablets and surely to judge the 'best' we would've had to try more than one... which doesn't seem that healthy to me...
    Skin is my passion.

    oh lucy you are so young. i love it. you will keep us on our toes. antibiotics are used when acne is out of control and nothing else is helping. yes you could use accutane(roaccutane) but that is a very big step for some people. you have youthful beautiful skin. and apparently haven't been sick much as a child. all the ones listed on the vote page are antibiotics. turmeric is an herb that has many uses. hope i helped explain some of your confusion.
