Anyways, I was wondering, in your experiences, what the best product for treating non-inflamed acne? I hate it so much. :/

i second this. take 30 mg zinc chelated a day and put zinc oxide topical on your face at night. it comes in diaper rash cream.
Try zinc both internally and topically. Also look into diet modifications.

the RDA is 10mg.

"The effects of oral zinc sulfate (corresponding to 135 mg of zinc daily) alone and in combination with vitamin A (300,000 international units) daily on acne lesions have been compared with those of vitamin A alone and of a placebo. The number of comedones, papules, pustules, and infiltrates were counted at each visit. After four weeks, there was a significant decrease in the number of papules, pustules, and infiltrates in the zinc-treated groups. The effect of zinc plus vitamin A was not better than zinc alone. After 12 weeks of treatment, the mean acne score had decreased from 100% to 15%. The mechanism for the effect of zinc therapy in acne, to our knowledge, is not presently known.
the only problem is that 100mg of zinc is supposedly dangerous but who knows really? they change the RDA a lot because they pulled some of those numbers out of the clouds.
