Research appearing in the journal Cutis (July, 1981;28:41-42) shows that a nutritional approach to acne may be useful. The researchers treated 98 acne patients who had not been treated with antibiotics. The subjects took vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin B6 (for women with acne that is worse during menses). They were told to not eat a lot of refined sugar and fat, to avoid soft drinks, avoid female hormones (including birth control pills), avoid iron, avoid iodine (including iodized salt), avoid vitamin B12 and limit dairy consumption. Ninety of the 98 patients improved significantly and 42 of the patients had a 90 – 100% improvement within two months.
