Virginia Beach, VA – My Vitamin Guide (MVG), an online reference guide for vitamins, supplements, herbal remedies and alternative medicine, has continued to expand its website information on acne. Found online at, MVG provides consumers free information on vitamins and supplements as well as resources, news, advice, and content from medical professionals on more than 650 health concerns and illnesses.

"Teenagers aren’t the only age group concerned about acne. Adult acne is also a significant problem, and even baby acne is an issue for some families. We find people of many ages searching for information about acne skin care, acne treatment, acne medication, acne products, acne prevention, and acne solutions." We’re pleased to offer information that includes natural acne treatments as well as conventional, medicinal approaches," said MVG CEO Sam Knoll. "By providing information in a clear and easy-to-use way, we are helping teens and adults make informed decisions about how to treat their acne effectively."

The MVG acne section, found at , offers a checklist that rates the effectiveness of natural treatments for acne, including nutritional supplements and herbs, as well as helpful dietary and lifestyle changes, and several recommended alternative health treatments.

Natural products that have demonstrated effectiveness include topical applications of niacinamide gel, oral zinc supplements, and topical use of tea tree oil. Other vitamins and herbal products are also reported on in the MVG article, but most of these have yet to demonstrate sufficiently conclusive results necessary to earn the MVG "three star" rating.

My Vitamin Guide’s acne section also recommends that teens and adults with acne should:

-Keep skin clean with the help of astringent lotions, oil-removing pads, and medicated soaps

-Use acne-fighting lotions that contain salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, niacinamide gel (4%), or tea tree oil (5%)

-Take 60 to 90 mg of zinc each day to improve acne

-If taking extra zinc, add 1 to 2 mg each day of copper to avoid a copper deficiency

-Prevent new breakouts and treat existing cysts with products containing tea tree oil or salicylic acid

For those wanting further information, MVG includes links to many other resources. For example, the acne page at contains more than 25 references to scientific articles dealing with acne-related research.
