30-40 mgs of zinc gluconate...lots of research backing its use for calming acne inflammation, and Dan himself personally recommends. This form is more bioavailable than other forms.

A note on fish oil...not all are effective for acne! Look for a high-potency, highly concentrated omega 3 fish oil with at least half of the omega 3 fatty acid from EPA omega 3. The higher the EPA, the better it is for calming inflammation. 1000 - 2000 mgs of EPA omega 3 per day is optimal. Carlson brand Norwegian fish oil in the bottle is the most potent I've come across, although drinking it by the teaspoon isn't going to work for everyone. So I recommend Solgar Triple Strength Omega 3 fish oil and taking 2 gel caps per day. 2 gel caps contains 2000 mgs of omega 3 fish oil, 1000 mgs of which is EPA omega 3. Kirkland (Costco) also makes a good affordable high-potency fish oil gel cap but you may have to take like 3 or more of these per day.

Vitamin A...eat foods high in Vitamin A, and supplement with 10,000 IU per day for inflammation.

Here's a great article that talks about vitamins to heal your acne! :)

Just an FYI, but if you're taking fish oil, you should also definitely take zinc along with it, as zinc helps the body metabolize and absorb omega 3 fatty acids! :)
