Post What is good for ACNE PRONE skin

Right now I just bought Trader Joe's (a small healthfood store in California) WOMENS FORMULA 'SUPPORTS NAILS, HAIR & SKIN'

???

Are there certain areas to stay away from, and certain ones to get more of...

thank you very much. is it safe to take all of that in one sitting and also take my multi vitamin.
or should i not take the multi vitamin because the bottles you recommended have the important ingredients already in them but in higher doses.
is the multi needed?

well i know that over 100,illigrams of zinc is too much and i think considered toxic so i wouldnt take anymore of that. Also 45000iu of Vitamin A is alot too but i think u have to consume alot more of that to be toxic. I would only take 2000 of the flaxseed because that is the recommended amount. So no i wouldnt take these with ur multivitamin. I would either do one r the other and add the Flaxseed in also. And i take mine all together after breakfast, except Flaxseed..i take 1 in the morning and one at dinner.By the way After u open Flaxseed oil it has to be refrigerated and kept cold. Good luck let me know ur results!
