Okay, so I was wondering if Zinc works like benzoyl peroxide, meaning the skin is said to never build up an "immunity" towards benzoyl peroxide, so likewise, will taking Zinc supplements to a certain extent make your body/skin get used to it and not be as effective as it was initially?

I took 1 30mg zinc tablet the other night, and now when i run my hand through my hair, it falls out. My experience may be rare, so dont let it offset you, but I personally dont plan on taking zinc ever.

I had acne from age 12 - 29. I used various methods including 3 years of treatment at UCLA medical center. Then someone told me this formula. I have been passing this inexpensive, totally non invasive method to others for years. You must do all parts for it to work. Let me know if you have results.

50 mg Zinc daily Gluconate, chelated are both ok for sure. I buy at GNC

One A and D tablet daily

A major multivitamin with lots of minerals.

Stop all milk, and most milk products, especially if you are male over 17

No alcohol. It destroys zinc

Should take about 2 weeks to see major results. 3 for excellent result. Does not cure 100%. I noticed stress would usually result in one zit on my nose. Really works well to eliminate scarring acne on soft tissue around cheeks.

Ok to go to 100mg of Zinc, especially on days you decide to violate rule about alcohol

I did this regimen for 25 years. I have now switched to Juice Plus with no change in results. My 17 year old son has just started, and after one week is clearing already.

I realize that this might only work for those who have zinc deficiency, but it costs so little and has worked for most folks I've suggested it to over last 30 years.

I don't believe that is cause-and-effect. Especially not from 1.
