St. John's wort and microlite together?

User Profile
Hello, I am taking at johns wort and also microlite for the purpose of helping acne. I am not using it for contraceptive purposes. Is it safe to continue taking St. John's wort and microlite together? While I understand that the effect of microlite may be decreased by taking St. John's wort, is it still worthwhile to take it to help my skin? Thanks
