  1. I have been taking zinc for about a month. I saw a decrease in oil production right away, but I am still breaking out on the lower half of my face (where I am driest and have been using moisturizer) I believe that is true about our skin not bouncing back as fast.

Has anyone run into this problem and found a solution.
  5. Hello, I am getting married in 4.5 months and I want clear skin at least once in my life! I have been on the Dan's regimen following it closely for a while. When I first started using it in 2008 my skin cleared up almost completely, I went on birth control to prevent cysts that kept forming on my ovaries, and I broke out once again. Since I have been on birth control I cannot clear my skin up. I have switched to a low dose birth control and only saw minor improvement. I believe it is hormonal
