  1. WEEK 11 (2.5 MONTHS): - I stopped posting for a while because midterms started coming up and I got very busy. I think I may be posting less frequently though as i don't see me having any skin epiphanies anytime soon lol - I have currently a few spots (active) and a lot of healing ones on my cheek (those honeslty kind of come and go and I swear it's due to not washing my makeup brushes frequently enough) - I have not had any super inflammed or itchy/painful hormonal spots around my mouth an
  2. WEEK 5: - last week I took my zinc pill at 1pm, literally right around the time I take my birth control pill and I started to bleed the next day and for many days after, barely stopped yesterday actually, I also broke out - It's finally getting better, it wasn't super terrible but it was a bad breakout generally - don't really have much more to update, I feel like next week will show more improvement overall, so here are some pictures:
  3. Hello there, this is my first blog where I report my improvements using Zinc to treat my persistent, painful acne. Lets get the basics out of the way real quick: - I'm 25, female - currently taking Zinc (as Zinc methionine) 30 mg (OptiZinc by Source Naturals) which also contains Copper (as Copper Sebacate) 288 mcg - also currently taking a women's multivitamin that also contains 15mg of Zinc (as Zinc Oxide) (2+ years) and Yaz birth control pill (8+ years) - I avoid dairy (not lactose
  4. WEEK 6/7 (I skipped a week): - I finally overcame the majority of that awful hormonal breakout, for the most part && most importantly no spotting/bleeding issues (sorry tmi) - now that I'm in week 7, I can say that I am overall happy with how zinc has been helping me out with my skin - the primary improvements are seen in the reduction of hormonal acne around my mouth area which is AMAZING because that's what bothered me the most - I currently have a few minor cysts on the sides of
  5. WEEK 4: - I am pleased to update that my skin has continued to improve into week 4 on zinc - I still breakout, still somewhat frequent (but a little less frequent than before) but when I do breakout, they are so minor and tiny; hardly ANY at all are inflamed/cystic - I have really seen a reduction in the acne around my mouth/jawline which is amazing - as far as oiliness goes, I feel that my skin is back to the norm for me, which was combo skin; mildly oily t-zone and dry cheeks - I don
  6. WEEK 3: - the breakouts that popped up on my chin/jawline area have definitely calmed down a lot (sooo happy) - I think I notice slightly oilier skin since being on zinc, but during week 3 now, it seems less noticeable and probably closer to what my skin was normally at (combination skin, but not overly oily t-zone) - the breakouts are much less inflammed, itchy, and painful - I notice a somewhat steady/usual occurrance of spots on my face though, in the usual places (hairline, forehead, aro
