Will disappont: The oil is shiny and will make the scars less visible as long as it's there. It will have no long-term effect. I'm sorry that your acne was not managed properly and you got scarred in the first place. This would be a great time to get with your personal physician especially if your Retin-A is not giving you adequate acne relief -- there's much more we can offer. ...Read more

Is vitamin E oil good for acne scars?

No: The oiliness will make them slightly less visible while it stays on your skin. I'm really sorry that your acne didn't get treated when it should have been.

It's your choice; especially if you're a man, note that several hollywood leads kept their for "tough". ...Read more

How good is vitamin E oil at getting rid of acne scars?

Not effective: Acne scars are forever. Vitamin e oil in my experience is not good at treating these scars. The most effective means to treat acne scars (there are 3 types of acne scars) is usually to have skin resurfacing with an instrument called fraxel. You will need several treatments and they aren't cheap, but they are among the most effective and safest ways to treat acne scars. ...Read more

Tea tree oil vs vitamin E vs vitamin c. Which one is best for acne scarring?

Depends how you use : I'm guessing you're asking about topical application of all of those things.

Will putting vitamin E oils on my face at night help with fine lines and wrinkles? Or will it just clog my pores and cause acne?

Bad idea: Try retinoic acid instead. Avoid sun exposure. Or forget the whole business. Who really cares about wrinkles? They are a sign of an adventurous, athletic life close to nature. Only advertisers would want you to be upset by them. ...Read more

What to do if I have acne. I take 400iu of vitamin e, 500mg niacin, 50mg zinc, multivitamin and fish oils, what order should I take them through the day?

Use a real Rx: Forgive my frankness. Beyond an economical multivitamin-with-minerals, these "health pills" are worthless for acne and are probably not doing you much good in any other way. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add something that will. Best wishes. ...Read more
