Talking I accidentally cured my acne...

I have had acne since I was probably 14. In high school it was at its worst! It was horrible. I had no acne and beautiful skin for a few years while on birth control. When I decided to go off birth control just over 2 years ago my acne was not shy about coming back not nearly as bad, but there!

About 3-4 months ago at my annual doctors appointment I requested a Vitamin D level with my bloodwork and not surprisingly it was low. I started taking 1000IU of vitamin D3 daily and now my acne is totally gone

Worth looking into if you are having trouble with adult acne. Keep in mind vitamin d is more of a hormone than a vitamin so get your level checked and make sure you're taking a prescribed amount.

The things Vitamin D does never ceases to surprise me.

That is great that it cured it!!!
I read once that if you put your first morning urine on acne it will go away. I never could get anyone to try it out to see if it actually worked though, lol.
Exercise in the morning before your brain figures out what you are doing.

That's awesome!! I'm like a kid still getting breakouts and having awful skin except I'm 37. I figured I'd have to live with it all of my life. I had been on a high dose progestin for the last 6 months for another reason and my skin dried up/never broke out once. Sure as heck, I stopped the meds and the estrogen surge must have gone straight to my face. I hate it. I'm going to look up vitamin D right now! Thanks so much for sharing!
