It takes sometime to completely clear up. It took me a full three months to clear up, and I'm 19. It's different for different people. Just keep being persistent and diligent, and you will see great results.

Same, it took me around 3-4 months to become fully clear. By then, the Benzoyl Peroxide barely dried the skin like it did in the beginning of the regimen.

Just stay persistent with it and make sure you wash your face twice a day.

Yes you can take zinc tablets, but try to intake 50mg or less a day.

For Fish Oil, i heard you can go up to 6 tablets a day.

Also, take the survey at http://www.acne.org/regimenadvice.php and carefully review your results. This will ensure everything is going smoothly and you're doing what you can.

Regarding fish oil and zinc, they're always good ideas, but I wouldn't look for anything dramatic with them. Studies show zinc helps, but only moderately. Fish oil remains to be seen but common sense tells us it should help. Plus it's just really good for you in other ways.
