I recently came across Cave Girl Eats who swears by fermented cod liver oil for acne/skin improvement. Has anyone else had similar success? Do the capsules work the same as the actual oil? I'm really trying to paleo-ify my skin care regimen but really dont know where to start-for acne/trouble skin.

you can get FCLO in a bottle from Green Pastures... it is thicker. I think it would work.
Alternatively if you are skeptical to put FCLO on your face and still want a natural way try tea tree oil on the spots, wash with witch hazel or apple cider vinegar and use coconut oil as a moisturizer. It will take a week or more for you to see results - you might feel it is getting worse in the start bc your skin detoxes.

I've found the Beauty Balm from Green Pastures (new skincare product) to be helpful on the rare zit that pops up. It's a great moisturizer too! It has FCLO as an ingredient
At the Weston Price conference in November 2011 they gave free product samples, and one of the ladies I was hanging out with her acne (from travel and accidental gluten) literally dropped by 80% overnight. We were both skeptical but after her results we were impressed!

I don't normally have acne, and didn't notice any difference one way or the other with fermented CLO, but when I take 5 or more capsules of normal CLO I get tiny zits.

I know it has been a long time since you posted this question- but I believe that the fermented cod liver oil she was talking about comes in capsule form. The only difference might be you get a set amount of oil in a capsule- but by the spoonful there is not a specific amount you could be getting. I hope your skin is lovely at this point!
