Zits & the Light Bulb!

The light bulb came on today as to why I suddenly began breaking out with acne.

I'd wracked my brain trying to determine what I had done differently or changed. I wear the same Mac makeup. Granted, I haven't been eating properly, but I've done that sporadically for years.

As I was running errands this weekend, it occurred to me that I ran out of my Biotin pills over a month ago and with such a hectic April simply didn't have time to pick up more.

When I went to purchase Biotin for the first time about a year or so ago, the guy at the Vitamin Shoppe recommended their Skin, Hair & Nails formula. He said it contained as much Biotin needed daily while getting the benefits of addtional vitamins. The price was great so I thought I'd give it a try. I never really knew if they were "doing" anything - just that it was healthy to take them.

Ok that's my guess on the zits mystery. I started taking the Biotin again today, in fact they only had a 300 tablet bottle. I purchased it, ruling out running out anytime this year. I'm anxious to see if my skin clears up.
I'll report back on this issue in a month or so. I know y'all will be anxiously waiting on the status of Blaq's zits...LOL! I crack myself up.

Thanks for the tip, Blaq! I know I don't even come close to eating well, so this may be a help for me. The only drawback - I'm sure the pills are as big as a horse! And I've never been able to swallow pills easily.

I wish I had checked your blog before I went to Vitamin Shoppe today. I picked up the store brand biotin. When I run out I will have to try the Skin and Nails.

Definitely report back to us!

Hey, Blaq I use that one as well as the biotin, and multi-vitamin.

Oh my goodness. I just ran out of one of my products--the Wheatgrass powder. I use it in my protein smoothies daily.

I was going to try some thing new and different. I have a personal trainer recommeding me against all of the stuff I was currently taking.

But II have a huge bump, zit, or whatever it is called on my right cheek. It is going away, but that is the first I had seen I minute.

What is ever in the multivitamins, minerals, and biotin really does help because at my Mama's birthday luncheon my sister's and I took her to at the end of April she commented on how smooth, clean and even my skin was. My nails are even trying to grow.

I better get back to the natural foods store soon, Soon, SOON!
