I recently read a post on Into the Gloss where the interviewee said she took MSM supplements to help her achieve clear skin. Since I’m obsessed with good skin (I have terrible skin), I immediately went to Whole Foods to look for it.
I found this in the bones and joints section of the vitamins and supplement aisle. It was strange because when I was searching for more info about MSM online, I read a few reviews that said it was good for skincare and also saw that it was good for joints. I have no idea if the supplement is good for joints, but it is definitely helping my skin. I stopped taking birth control pills a few years ago because I was concerned about blood clots, and every since then I’ve had issues with acne. I usually have particularly bad skin around that time of the month, but with this supplement, it’s been a lot better. I’ve been taking one 500mg pill a day during the work week.
I bought the Whole Foods 365 brand, and the supplement is about 50% the size of a dime (see picture for comparison to a nickel). It’s pretty easy to swallow – not a huge horse pill like some of the vitamins out there.
Do you take supplements to achieve clear skin? Have you tried MSM?
