Does Biotin Cause Acne? We know it’s great for hair, skin and nails. Biotin, (which is vitamin B7) helps with the breakdown and distribution of fatty acids and improves the keratin infrastructure. This gives you both a glow and a protective layer.

Vitamin B5, (pantothenic acid) helps with the regulation of the surface layer of the skin. In short, it helps prevent acne. Working together they can give you healthy looking skin.

Biotin B7 is absorbed through receptors in the intestines, and so is vitamin B5. Because they are both absorbed through the same receptors, if there is an excess of one, there is a deficiency in another.

This means that if you’re taking biotin supplements, especially pure biotin, then you won’t be able to absorb the vitamin B5 in your diet. This means that the surface of your skin will be more prone to breakouts. It’s not that biotin causes acne, but a deficiency in vitamin B5 will.

What Can You Do to Prevent It? You need to make sure that you don’t have an excess of biotin to pantothenic acid.
If you’re taking supplements, skip the pure biotin. A biotin multivitamin such as Halcyon for Skin (link in bio, HalcyonSkin.com) , instead can give you a boost of vitamin B5 without risking any of the potential problems of an excessive dosage.

Chapped lips are super common. Our lips don’t have oil glands like the rest of our skin, which makes it difficult for them to retain moisture.

Lips also do not have a stratum corneum which is our skin’s armour, the top layer of skin. That being said, there are some other factors that could be causing this:

Salty and spicy snacks! Salt holds water, so it can absorb the water away from the lips and just dry them out.  

Vitamin B deficiencies can give you dry, cracked, red lips and sometimes a rash around the mouth.

Sun cooks the water out of your skin and that can leave an already dry area even more dry! Plus, a sunburn can leave your lips peeling as skin cells turn over and try to replenish.

Accutane is the number one medication to cause dry, cracked lips.

Yeast overgrowth.
Do you have an underbite? Or maybe you drool in your sleep? These factors can cause yeast overgrowth leading to dry, flaky skin around the mouth, and fissuring (small cracks in the corners of the mouth).

The key to restoring the barrier and retaining water is an amazing lip treatment like @halcyon.skincare Lip Treatment.
