Zinc Cured My Acne Update: Yeah, No... Acne Hell Again..

Recommended Posts

So, im just here to say that zinc cured my acne.

Sometimes i still have some, but it never ''grows'' So seems that zinc stops inflammation, so for me i dont have that red spots anymore (i used to have a lot)... BUUUUUT my skin still extremelly oily

I stopped to take for 2 weeks and i was having red spots again...

I take 50mg in the morning and 50 at night...

I think its a nice idea for everybody at least try it...

As i said my skill still a mess because its like oil.. and i dont know what to do about it...

ps- sorry for my english

FYI, if you're taking 100mg of zinc a day, in pill form, then you're probably overdosing.

consuming more than 100mg of zinc can be toxic, and you CAN get quite a bit of zinc from your diet depending on what you eat.

Also, I really think this is all in your head. I doubt pill zinc has the ability to cure anyone's acne

hi there, i think you are wrong. Taking more than 40mg of zinc daily would make your antibody worse in long run. After all, our body always flush out excessive intake of vitamin, including zinc. There's no difference between taking 18 mg and 30mg of zinc daily. You might want to read this:

I also take zinc daily, in form of multivitamin but my multivitamin only contained 12 mg of zinc. I think I need to add zinc-containing foods into my diet to make up for the remaining 6mg of zinc.

Also, the same rules apply to vitamin C and the other popular stuffs. If I take in 250 mg and 1000 mg of vitamin C at different days, they won't make any real difference as the body would consume about 90-150 mg of vitamin C and flush out the rest.

I honestly don't believe though that taking any vitamin stuff help us in fighting acne. (including zinc/iron/etc.)
