Vitamins for Acne Guide: A & B-Complex

There are numerous vitamins that play a role in promoting healthy skin, including acne prevention. While vitamin deficiencies are not a serious problem for most people, sometimes you need more than just the bare-minimum RDA when it comes to combating acne. This guide gives an overview of the key nutrients that are most essential for clear skin.

If all these vitamins and minerals are important for healthy skin, why doesn't Clear5's formula include them all?

Because we want a product that actually works, not one that simply looks good on the shelf. People who don't know much about vitamins often make the mistake of thinking that the best supplement is the one with the most ingredients. In reality, most "throw in everything" vitamin products are scams.


Remember the rule of smart supplements: It is better to have an effective amount of the vitamins that count, than an ineffective amount of everything. Don't be fooled by vitamin products that claim to treat everything. Some vitamins compete for absorbance, while others have little effect unless they are taken in fairly large quantities. A smart supplement combines the right vitamins in the right proportions. Clear5's natural formula provides a powerful dose of vitamin B5, along with supporting ingredients that ensure you see real results, without the potential hazards of mega-dosing.



Vitamin A

(with cartenoids)

Vitamin A deficiency can be a cause of acne. Vitamin A works to strengthen the skin's protective tissue and prevents acne formation by reducing sebum production. Vitamin A is also vital for the maintenance and repair of skin tissue. It is a potent antioxidant and helps rid the body of toxins. Many prescription medications (including Accutane®) are based on derivatives of vitamin A. However, as many users can attest, these treatments can cause potentially harmful side effects, from blistering and peeling to bowel damage and other serious conditions. Never combine strong vitamin A-based medications with other acne creams that could cause dryness (such as those containing benzoyl peroxide). Do not take vitamin A supplements if you are pregnant.



B-Complex Vitamins

Each of the B vitamins has a specific role in promoting healthy skin, and many of them compliment each other. Besides direct effects in enhancing your skin tone, B-complex vitamins are also considered to play a role in reducing stress, which can indirectly aid in preventing acne since many studies show that stress contributes to acne formation. Taking a B-complex supplement may help some users of Clear5 who lack a balanced diet, but use caution. While mostly beneficial, some B vitamins can actually compete with vitamin B5 or even cause problems for your skin if taken in high doses.


Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)

Vitamin B1 aids digestion in the process of metabolizing food. A proper balance of vitamin B1 can help your body to better absorb other vitamins. B1 is also an antioxidant that rids your body of toxins, enhances blood circulation and assists in energy production.


Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)

Vitamin B2 deficiency can be a cause of acne. B2 is essential for healthy skin, hair and nails. B2 also plays a role in growth and energy release. Along with vitamin A, vitamin B2 works to improve and maintain the mucous membranes in the digestive tract, aiding in digestion and preventing the buildup of bacterial waste.


Vitamin B3 (Niacin)

Another important element for healthy skin, vitamin B3 enhances circulation and aids in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Niacin can also provide for a more efficient exchange of toxins and nutrients into and out of your skin cells. But be careful, as high doses may result in irritation and cause your skin to become flushed.


Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)

Second in effectiveness only to vitamin A derivatives, vitamin B5 has been shown to counteract the hormonal imbalance at the heart of acne formation for most people. B5 plays a vital role in the production of Coenzyme A, which is necessary in order for the body to metabolize skin oil. Vitamin B5 is also the most common B vitamin for stress relief, indirectly aiding acne prevention through lowering stress levels. B5 enhances the circulation of cells involved in healing wounds and is needed for the proper functioning of adrenal glands. Besides acne relief, vitamin B5 is known to increase metabolism and stamina, as well as reduce pain and swelling in rheumatoid arthritis.



Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)

Vitamin B6 deficiency can be a cause of acne. Vitamin B6 plays a role in metabolizing proteins, sugars, and fatty acids. B6 is also important to maintaining a healthy immune system and producing antibodies.
