Arrow Need Oral Medication Recommendations

I have a 98% clear face in terms of pimples, I occasionally get a small pimple if I do not remain loyal to my diet. I used to have severe scarring but I underwent micro dermabrasion and peeling sessions and they greatly improved. However, I still have some very minor scars and blemishes. They werenít really that noticeable, but it really depends on the shade of light. Under some shades of light, I look great and under others I look terrible. Along with that, my skin tone isnít that even.

I just received my order of Epidermx and I just applied it on my face the first time. It is too early to see results right now. I am hoping in a few weeks that I will start to notice some differences. I have heard generally good reviews from this product. This is the only topical medication I am using and will use. A few month's ago I used Rodan and Field's "Radiant", but it did not make any difference at all.

Besides Epidermx, I need some recommendations for oral medications for generally nice skin in the long term. I am not too knowledgeable in this arena.

I donít need to take medications like Accutane, which are intended in stopping acne. Acne isnít my problem anymore, just my skin tone and mild scarring.

I am taking 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil a day and 500mg of Vitamin C. That is all I am taking so far. I just started. Is there any other products or supplements I should know about? I considered taking Vitamin E, but I have heard terrible reviews that it didnít make any difference to people even after taking it for so long.
