Fish Oil

I read somewhere on these boards that Fish Oil (At Least 1000mg 3x a day) would really clear up my skin. I went and bought 1200mg of fish oil and have taken it 3x a day for the past 4 days. It seems my clogged pores and breakouts have gotten worse. Has anyone else had this problem or should I stay away from Fish Oil alltogether?

Re: Fish Oil

Hmm... maybe you're having some "initial breakout" due to the capsules, and perhaps things will get worse before they get better (it does happen). It could also just be a coincidence, and the problem is not actually the fish oil. If you are looking for clear skin though, fish oil is not what you are looking for. As far as I know, fish oil helps your skin to become smoother, softer and more radiant. Some good supplements for acne are; milk thistle, Vitamins C and E, Alpha Lipoic Acid, multivitamins, zinc and a B complex vitamin. Hope this helps... good luck!

Re: Fish Oil

I agree with goldenseal, fish oil is BY NO MEANS a cure for acne!! I have been taking 3,000 mg for over a month now and have not noticed a real difference...however, evening primrose oil has greatly helped my cycle breakouts - but i suppose that only applies if you are a girl

Re: Fish Oil

Thanks for the reply. I guess I can stop taking fish oil then. I just wish I was clear skinned - some days its really good and like today, it's really bad.
