    Could be due to it pushing out the bad stuff in your skin. I took 3 pills a day for 30days of this Liver Cleansing pills and it had milk thistle and many other ingredients. I also had a big breakout and i think it was because its forcing out the bacteria in your skin. This is just a guess, but from what ive heard this is why you get more pimples before you get no pimples. no what i mean my *****?

    Milk thistle is for the liver,the liver filters out toxins either thru the skin or bowels .Hence the acne outbreak.

    Re: why would milk thistle make me get more acne?

    Another question about Milk Thistle (not acne related . . sorry). I've read that Milk Thistle helps to clean out the liver, getting rid of toxins and traces of medications. I was on anti-depressants for almost two years, which slowed my metabolism drastically. Now that I'm off of the medication, I want to try to cleanse my liver of any traces of the meds that might still be inhibiting its normal function, and causing me to not loose weight as I once did. I've been taking Milk Thistle along with Spirulina for about a week and a half now. Will this do me any good in cleansing my liver. I've been off the meds for almost 4 months now, so has my body done the job for me, or will these supplements help? Any other supplements that might help? I've heard that drinking lots of water helps too . . . .THANKS!
