Effect of stress on acne (and B5 influence)

I have been using B5 for almost 2 months now (4-5g a day) with good results. The main thing i noticed is that my skin became less oily.
However, today i came home in the afternoon and noticed that i had an oily skin again, for the first time in 2 months! Worse: i also had some whiteheads. Apparantly the bacteria on my skin could take advantage of my oily skin immediately.

I started to ask myself what has changed in the last days and could only think of one thing: stress. I have had 3 very stressfull days on my work and thinking about the B5 study (B5 is also used for stress hormones) this might have resulted in a B5 deficiency & therefore a less efficient fat metabolism in my body. I have increased my B5 dosage and am crossing my fingers that the oily skin will disappear again.

would like to hear ideas/experiences from other members, especially B5 users.

Re: Effect of stress on acne (and B5 influence)

Well, while on 6g of B5 a day I got really stressed out about some work stuff and next day. 5 new cystic zits, big ones! I KNOW that stress can effect acne. Anyways, I decided to up the dose to 9g thinking that would help, nope, all it did was give me 3 new white heads the next day because of the B5 change... <IMG SRC="">
