Zinc For Oily Skin?

Recommended Posts


anyone ever have any luck with zinc for oily skin? I think it works by limiting the conversion of testosterone into DHT (the cause of oily skin). Correct me if I'm wrong on that. Also, anyone have any luck with any of DHT blocker/inhibitors?

I wouldn't suggest it. I tried zinc and it didn't do much for me. I've heard some people have success with vitamin d3 though.

I've been taking 50mg of Zinc a day along with Vitamin E, C and B6. It's been 12 days and I don't see any results so far. I've read somewhere that it takes 12 weeks to see some results. That's 3 months. . . :/
