Week 3 Just Started And I Have Made Significant Progress!

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.

What exactly is your regimen? I just started 44mg of zinc today so we'll see if it helps some. The last time i took zinc for 3 months, it didn't hurt or help. I'm taking a different form this time around

After I was my face with just water I:

• use a mixture of activated charcoal capsules(3 of them), sugar, and aloe vera gel and exfoliate for a minute or two and leave on as a mask for 5 mins and rinse off

•wash my face with my facial soap, I use asepxia neutral soap which contains salicylic acid and glycolic acid.

•use a mixture of aztec healing clay (which is calcium bentonite clay), lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar. I leave it on for an hour and wash off with hot water.

•once my face is dry I moisturize with that same aloe vera gel I used to mix the charcoal exfoliator/mask and head to bed.

I do this everything.

Hopefully this new brand works for you, I'm using 50 mgs of the vitamin shoppe's brand. Feel free to let me know how the zinc is working for your acne.
