The Best Vitamins For You And Your Acne | What Finally Ended My Acne

Todays post is one that I have been anticipating for about a month now and I am so excited that today is the day! I get to introduce a very important brand to you (that is of course if you don't already know how amazing this brand is) they have truly changed the way I look and feel in the best way possible! Can you tell I'm excited? Good! Because this is one of my favorite brands that I have discovered in a long time!

Hum Vitamins is a brand that I had heard about from my many Youtube friends but maybe like most of you, I just thought it was another boring vitamin brand. Oh how wrong was I?

You guys know that I never promote or write about a brand that I don't truly love because I am all about being honest and sharing my favorite brands with you, my friends! So here is a little story about how Hum Vitamins have changed my life and become apart of my routine!
About a month or two ago, I posted a long Instagram story about my skin and asking for your guys' recommendations on what I should do to improve my skin and clear my acne before my wedding. Unfortunately, I am one of those lucky ones that was blessed with adult acne (is the sarcasm jumping off the page?) After posting those videos I got a recommendation to take Hum Vitamins and how they have vitamins directed towards the skin. When I looked on their website I was amazing at how many of their vitamins are directed towards clearing acne, scars, rejuvenating the skin, and overall good looks, I mean who doesn't want to look good?

After reading their story it clicked.
"The idea of HUM was born out of Walter's personal struggle with his skin and breakouts. Years of trying topical products and prescription drugs had literally left him scarred emotionally and physically. Many of the drugs prescribed worked only on a temporary basis and the breakouts returned year after year. Walter always felt that there was a link between nutrition and his skin but research in the area was hard to come by, with the majority of dermatologists not trained in the field of nutrition. It was only after he met with one of London's most forward thinking nutritionists that he was able to fix his skin once and for all."

This brand is all about clearing your acne from the inside out and I just love that! I am all about naturally healing what is wrong with my body and it took me forever to get to a dermatologist and when I did they wanted to put me on a pill and I just was not about it! 

When I first started to show interested in Hum, I saw that they had a quiz on their website to find the perfect vitamins for you! I took the quiz and got about 6 different bottles. After reading their ingredients and how they are to help with my skin, I narrowed it down to 4.  These 4: 

D A I L Y   C L E A N S E: Helps clear your skin and body from toxins. 

G U T   I N S T I N C T: A potent probiotic that benefits your skin, health and beauty

OMG!  O M E G A  T H E   G R E A T: Supports even skin tone, a healthy heart, brain and body (and no fishy taste!) 

B A S E   C O N T R O L: Key nutrients for critical good looks and health

What I love about Hum Vitamins is that they are gluten free, Non-GMO, and they actually have ingredients I can pronounce! Some of their ingredients include: Copper, Matcha Green Tea, Beetroot, Sunflower Seed Oil, and Grape Seed Extract to name a few. 
When I reached out to Hum to collaborate with them, I told them which vitamins I was already taking and they recommended 2 more to compliment those. Those 2 are:  

R E D   C A R P E T: For glowing skin and shiny hair

F L A T T E R   M E: Supports a flatter stomach and healthy digestion

They also gave me the Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder that helps boost energy, radiant skin, and metabolism which is perfect for me because I am always feeling tired! I am not a huge fan of protein powders or any powdered drink but I have to say this powder is so good! I just put one scoop in 8 ounces of Almond Milk or in a smoothie and I got my daily greens for the day! 
 T H E   R E S U L T S:
Can I be honest with you guys? I saw results almost immediately! Once I started taking my first set of vitamins that I listed at the beginning of this post, I could start to see an improvement in my skin, overall mood and they way I felt! Of course, the real noticeable changes started happening within a week or two. Below are some photos of my skin before and throughout the few weeks I have been taking Hum Vitamins. 

Sorry for these uncomfortably close selfies of my acne (I am really being vulnerable with you) but I wanted you guys to truly see this brand is legit! 
My acne always takes forever to clear all the way up and my skin isn't 100% better but it is definitely on its way to being there! Hum has helped my skin calm down in the sense that the inflammation of my spots has decreased immensely, the redness has gone down, and there have been no new breakouts since taking Hum.  

Because I love Hum so much and I know you will love them too, you can get $10 off your purchase by using the code: 148CC1

Tell me in the comments which bottle you would love to try? 


  1. I'd like to try all of them to be honest, if I had unlimited money I would! But I've heard about HUM for years now and tried it once (but wasn't consistent), so what I'd like to try first is Red Carpet, Flatter Me, and Gut instinct

    1. Those ones are great! I just love their vitamins!

  2. I'm already using Red Carpet, Daily Cleanse, and OMG Omega the great. I started about 3 weeks ago. I recently stopped taking birth control pills and wanted to get my body back on track as fast as possible. One of the driving factors behind choosing HUM over other brands is that after the quiz you can add additional information to help your personal dietitian nutritionist recommend the best products. My recommendations made me feel more informed and confident in the decision I was making. I'm still evaluating the products, but I can say the side effects of getting off birth control haven't been as bad as I expected based off what I've read. It's definitely hard for me NOT to attribute my easy transition to HUM.

    1. I just recently got on BC and i was off it within a week! My body can't handle it! I love the HUM targets cleansing the body from the inside out! So good! I hope it continues to work out for you!

  3. Hi there. I was led to your blog from my HUM email update. I just wanted you to know that I have been taking HUM Daily Cleanse, Gut Instinct, and Base Control for about 3 months now. What a huge difference! I am 48yrs old and was going thru hormonal acne for several years (cystic on chin and jaw area). I can honestly tell you that my face is 100% clear now - it started clearing up about 1/2way thru the 2nd month of taking HUM. Stick with it. As a side note, I also attribute Skin Owl Maqui Berry Beauty Drops PM with helping clear up my acne. This product was also developed in response to the Founders severe acne issues. Good luck!

    1. I have never heard of that other product but I would love to try! I am so happy that HUM haas helped you! I can't wait to see how well I feel and look after being on these for a few months!

  4. Hello. I have always struggled with terrible cystic acne on my chin/jawline. I know that it is hormonal and nothing topical helps. Is this the kind of acne you have? Have you been consistently taking all of these? Can you update us on your results? I have been interested in HUM for quite some time now. Thank you!

    1. Hi!
      Yes mine is hormonal acne and HUM does an amazing job of balancing you out. I can update soon! Follow me on Instagram because more than likely the update will be through there :) (@samantha_rue)
