How does vitamin B12 support skin health, and can it help with acne?

While not a primary treatment for acne, vitamin B12 plays a role in maintaining healthy skin. Here’s how it might contribute:

  • Cell Regeneration: B12 is necessary for the production of new skin cells, promoting healing and reducing the appearance of blemishes.
  • Reducing Inflammation: Some research suggests a link between B12 deficiency and inflammation, which can worsen acne. Injections may indirectly help by supporting an anti-inflammatory state.
  • Sebum Regulation: B12 may play a role in regulating sebum production (skin oil). Overproduction of sebum is a key factor in acne development.

Important Note: A B12 deficiency can contribute to skin problems, but it’s not a guaranteed fix for acne. Proper skin care and treating the root cause of acne are essential.
