I had an idea to use some zinc pills in the same way people make the asprin mask. I just disolved a few pills in some watter. My face felt really tight at first but I think it helped dry up a pimple and it left my face VERY soft. I have only done it twice now so I'm not posting to say it's some kind of cure. I was just wondering if anyone else had heard of doing this and what their results were.

Please keep us posted! Because I have some zinc pills and was wondering if that would work also!

It did dry up a couple inflamed pimples but like I said thats only with two uses. So I just hope I dont break out in some terrible rash :pray: ...It may turn some people off because of how tight it makes your face feel when you put it on, but it suprisingly didn't dry me out all that bad and I have combination skin. Ohh well we will see. I'll keep you posted.

I found this and thought it was interesting :

- Zinc (applied topically) reduces the Inflammation associated with Acne and retards the production of the excessive quantities of Sebum that causes the clogging of the Pores in Acne patients.

It says it is effective taken in pill form also but will take a couple months to see results.

But this might help if it makes my sebum production "retarded"....I guess thats a good thing.. :eh:
