My scars are fading, whitewhead galore stopped happening as did the initial breakout, and my acne hasn't been coming in full force and so often anymore! I cant believe just a couple months ago i had severe acne that was persistent since my freshman year of high school. Im starting college in late August and I have regained so much confidence I once had before. I really do think the zinc is the cause of the acne not coming back since it is the only thing I am taking internally for acne. As for the things I use externally I know they work to treat the acne I have already and the zinc has been helping keep it in control. I cant wait to see how I will be after one month. I am glad I did my research and saw what I could use for my acne since I didn't like prescription drugs. I definitely see myself using this for a while to help my acne.
