: This is just a recommendation from my experience. See how it works and then adjust as needed.
MSM - 1000 mg (3 times a day)
Vitamin Ester-C - 500 mg (3 times a day)
(Vitamin C and MSM work together, I take it after each meal. Ester-C absorbs quicker than regular C)
Zinc - 30 mg a day - do not take it with your other vitamins, it inhibits the absorption of antioxidant vitamins such as A and E. Do not take more than 50 mg a day, it will have the opposite effect.
If your acne is hormonal, I recommend Vitamin E (not the dry form) the regular Vitamin E works best for balancing hormones. Start out with either 200iu or 400iu once a day and then gradually build up to two or three times a day.
