Definitely take D3.
Magnesium is great. I take it even though I eat a lot of magnesium rich foods like greens & seeds. Take it in the evening. It relaxes muscles and helps with sleep.
Zinc can make you nauseous. Take with food. I no longer take it, but other than figuring out my food intolerance, a supplement that included zinc was the first thing I ever noticed helping me after years of dermatologists & their drugs. It made my skin a lot less oily & I rarely had inflamed acne on my face. Then i changed my diet & my skin cleared for the first time.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
