  1. I feel pretty embarrassed but I when I double checked the vitamin label for the the zinc dosage was 50 mg not 300 mg. I have no idea how I mixed those two up. So I'm taking about 150mg a week for zinc, which I think would be pretty safe since it's under recommended daily dosages. As for which I think is helping the acne I have no real idea since I have always taken them together. I have been taking the two vitamins for about four weeks at this point and I continue to improve. Right now I have o
  2. I take the dosage three times a week so it would work out to something like 1500 mg vitamin A a week and 900 Mg of zinc a week. or about 200 mg vitamin A a day and 130 mg of zinc a day so I thought that would be pretty safe. I have read that vitamin A and Zinc can cause toxicity if overdosed so Intentionally spread it out to almost every other day. Oddly though both vitamins on the bottle say that I can take a pill daily.
  3. Hi all, I'm a 28 year old guy and I found this place a few months ago because I was just about ready to try Accutane due to my moderate-severe acne that did not respond at all too proactiv and Skin ID. I wanted to see if there was anything else that I could try and I was pretty much willing to try anything.

  4. So it's been over a week now and I'm noticing improvement. Other concurrent factors to consider is the dramatic change in weather in my area (cold to warm). One other thing is that I have reduced my skin products usage from all the Skin ID products to just the mask. I'm taking pictures every few days as proof. Visually though I don't look that much better since my skin is still healing from my past breakouts but I'm very surprised at the results so far. I'm looking to see what will happen afte
  5. I have had moderate to severe acne since I was in HS (am close to 30 now). I have tried Proactiv, and Skin ID to no noticeable effect. I'm lactose intolerant so I have a significantly reduce intake of milk products, I sleep well and have a easy job. I don't want to try accutane since I'm worried about the side effects so I think I'll try this out. I'm assuming I should see results pretty quickly if this does work for me.
