I took zinc and my acne got much worse and I got really bad chest acne for the first time in my life, initial breakout yada yada, so I continued, I took it for about 6 weeks, acne continued to remain worse than before with very angry chest acne popping up daily, so then I decided I'd stop taking the zinc, my skin began to calm down, chest acne could finally begin to heal but I fear it will leave scars now on my chest, which sucks as I've put a lot of effort in at the gym to having a great looking torso. 

 

Zinc is a popular supplement which seems to work and has some science behind it. Yet it messed me up big time.

I took zinc for quite some time and it made my acne worse. I started breaking out in the areas of my face that always remained clear. In fact, I'm still working on healing the redness and marks left behind from the mess it made.
