Is Vitamin E Oil Good For Acne
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
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. Nothing you can do will affect your scars, but a dermatologist can make them less visible with dermabrasion, filler, laser or microsurgery. It's your choice; especially if you're a man, note that several hollywood leads kept their for "tough". ...Read more
Is it good to use vitamin E oil ( 1 time on face) for mild acne-prone skin ? Does it clog pores and can breakout more? ( m using it 4 light redness )
Yes, BUT: It will not be of any benefit unless you wish to oil your face. The masturbation is not relevant. If you wish for less acne a dermatologist will help you.

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

Is it true that rubbing vitamin E oil onto acne blemishes and scars will make them go away and prevent future breakouts?
Depends how you use : I'm guessing you're asking about topical application of all of those things. First i would consider making sure that you're taking some supplements internally, such as omegas, vitamin d, and beta carotene, they help heal skin from inside out. Tea tree oil will help heal infected skin. Vitamin e moisturizes skin, and vitamin c helps add antioxidants to skin, which may reduce scarring. ...Read more

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?
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
