Dr Haushcka is a v. interesting skincare line: it "trains" your skin to correct its own problems homeopathically.
I had great success w/ using it on my oliy, acne-afflicted skin even when I was only veg, not vegan.
One tip on great skin: eat lots of alkaline foods. My beautiful nutritionist swears by this. Also Omega-3s are crucial: not gross fish oil, but hemp, flax, etc. Many naturopaths suggest borage or evening primsrose oil (internally) for chronic skin conditions of all kinds.
In my case, I got lucky: going vegan completely cured my acne. Have you tried this?
I can actually induce a severe breakout by consuming dairy.
