Supplements to take to get rid of acne scars.
Hello, I am 23 years old female. Last year I developed acne more than usual on my face. I used to have acne on my forehead, cheeks, chin basically all over my face. I have PCOS which made my skin uneven and full of scars. My acne is healed but I have acne scars on my face. Please suggest which supplements would be best for acne scars? Which supplements will help in getting rid of acne scars?
@viena Hello, my suggestion would be to take the advice of the dermatologist or the doctor. treatment of existing scars is the vitamins from the B family, Vitamins A, the minerals zinc and selenium, and to a lesser extent, vitamins C and D.Vitamin A can modulate the renewal of damaged skin capillaries, melanocytes, and fibroblasts by binding to retinoic acid receptors. Vitamin B helps with wound healing by increasing protein synthesis and enabling more repair cells to the site. Zinc serves as a cofactor for numerous reactions vital to healing wounds and reducing scar tissue. Zinc helps in the synthesis of new collagen. Vitamin C improves wound strength and aids the production of collagen. It is also vital for developing new blood vessels that help to transport nutrients to the wound. Please contact your doctor before taking any supplements as they can have a few side effects. Thanks!
