Vitamin E is a powerful immune system booster when taken orally, which also makes it great for treating and preventing stubborn acne-prone skin. But the benefits don’t end there.

This beneficial vitamin is naturally found in green, leafy vegetables and some nuts, like almonds. You can also purchase Vitamin E as an oil for topical application.

For even more acne-fighting benefits, mix a Vitamin E oil with avocado . When combined, these ingredients produce a powerful anti-acne due for a clearer complexion.
