omega 2-6-9 and acne
I just started supplimenting with Udo's oil and omega 3-6-9 complex and have started to notice a bit of acne around my chin, lower cheeks, and neck. Prior to this I had extremely clear skin...the most i ever had was one pimple every 6 months or so. So I was wondering if it had to do with the oil? I have always followed the same type of diet and foods except i recently started eating more veges and almost doubled my protein...so it could be either of these things as well. Have you heard EFAs causing acne? or more protein?

nah, probably just a mysterious phase of acne , happens sometimes...

but isnt it strange that it started right when i started using the efa's?

now im having efas and eating perfect
i have acne on my face that i cant get rid off

I have noticed this as well the last 3-4 months, not on my face or neck but on my back and shoulder area.

no way...haha i have the least stressful life you can imagine! i thought the efas were supposed to help the skin too, thats what i dont get. and i drink tons of water too. i think i will just have to go to the dermatologist.

Pro-active is a far better product, all around, IMO.

Its funny because the last 9 months while dieting I have got acne as well......hmmmmm.

Plus it has also been linked to deaths and suicides.
I didnt experiance the suicidle thing but def dehyrdration and just an overall sense of not being well came over me.

I take omega 3,6,9, from vitamin world there brand and have never noticed any acne from it and I am acne prone so I think like somone else said just a coincedence.
