  1. bump! I've been on Zinc 50 mg for almost 3 weeks, and I really feel as though it has made a difference. I went from having a few active pimples and a few redmarks to NO remarks today and only one (small!) active pimple. Not bad. Of course the next 3 weeks will really be interesting because I go through ovulation and my period!
  2. be careful on the whole "overdosing" thing Alex -- people on here have said that if you get too much Zinc it can just make problems worse! 50-75 mg seems to be a happy, effective medium for most.
  3. 2 weeks of the zinc routine and I have zero active acne right now. STILL too early to tell it its the supplement or just my normal cycle. I think I'll wait until I get to my next period to decide for certain.
  4. I agree -- my Zinc pills are hard to swallow as well. I think they start dissolving the second they hit the tongue, which makes them hard to go down, or something. I'm not sure what else is out there to take though...
  5. Well, it could be the zinc, or it could be just my monthly cycle -- or something else!-- but I have been on 50 mg of zinc gluconate for 11 days now, and I have no active acne! I have also supplemented with Flaxseed Oil (around 1tbsp/day and my skin is much softer)
  6. Day 5 of zinc... still getting as many white heads, but they appear to be healing faster. could be my imagination OR another product i am using! i have been trying to take 250 mg of Vitamin C and also 1 TBSP of Flaxseed Oil.
  7. I wasn't expecting it to work overnight -- I know there are no magic bullets when it comes to acne. I'm just wondering how LONG it will take to start seeing a difference.
  8. I started taking 50 mg of Zinc Gluconate 2 days ago (in the morning, after breakfast). I'm wondering, for those of you who have had success using zinc, how long did it take before you start to see clearer skin? On some of the product reviews of zinc people say "My skin was clearer after 3 days!" or "My skin was clearer overnight!". I have a difficult time believing this, but at the same time, it makes me worried that I have not seen improvement. Of course I'll stick it out for a month or so,
  9. Hi Everyone, I was just wondering if anyone could direct me to a place where I could get testing done for various food intolerances? I've never been told I had any sensitivities, but because of my stubborn acne, I'm wondering if soy, gluten, etc. could be culprits. Do they do this at any holistic medicine places? I would much prefer that than going to a hospital! Any help you could give me would be appreciated
  10. There is no water at all? What about for drinking? Just take some bottled water along and a couple cloths to get wet and wipe your face with.
