Acne and Vitamins A & E

In general, traditional medicine does not recognize that dietary factors can have anything to do with acne. Recent research appearing in Clinical & Experimental Dermatology (2006; 31(3): 430-3) may show that there is a nutrient connection. In the study, 100 subjects who were recently diagnosed with acne were compared to 100 healthy controls. The subjects with acne had lower serum concentrations of vitamins A and E when compared to the subjects without acne. Also, subjects with severe acne had much lower serum concentrations of the two nutrients than subjects with mild acne.
