Herbal Supplements???

I just bought this supplememnt(pills) today called AKN skincare in hopes of it improving my acne or Its not even acne just these frigin annoying tiny bumps, I already got rid of the big ones that used to be on my forehead but now my face has that ruough uneven look instead of smooth I ****kin hate it I really feel bad for others who have it much worse than me.
Anyone ever tried anything like this I went to the vitamin shoppe and I saw a good number of herbal face products like pills shakes etc any experiences or am i wasting my friggin time like i have on other things for the past year.

Re: Herbal Supplements???

hey stillmatic, did you check out my reply to you before? I replied under your akn skin care post..check it out. I do take skin supplements: herpanacine & sulfurplex. They both help my skin, but like you I have those awful small white bumps (on my forehead). checkout my last reply to your akn post. kjack

Re: Herbal Supplements???

I think you should use an aha at leat 10% like optimum in a red box that helped with the little bumps a little which purges the pores to get out all the sh*t.<p>[This message has been edited by stillmatic586 (edited 05-29-2002).]

Re: Herbal Supplements???

stillmatic, thanks for info about AHA's, how does your skin handle the 10% AHA ? does it get really dried out or anything? I have sensitive skin and it seems like almost everything makes it red /irritated. however, at this point I am willing to try anything & everything. did you checkout the product littlebonjovigirl mentioned? it sounds good . I am going to check that out tomorrow. thanks again <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> kjack

Re: Herbal Supplements???

I had just purchased the AKN last night and start on it today. The lil warning at the bottom indicated an inital breakout is common so I am looking forward to how well it goes. I'm also taking other supplements in order to combat my acne and havent really seen any results as of it. A daily vitamin, gotu kola, zinc, primrose oil, and some multi-oil pills. I just started this routine a week or so ago. I'll keep ya posted on how it goes. Oh yah I also switched to clean and clear blemish soap...wish me luck
