Be careful with Zinc. Taking high doses can cause liver problems and it can prevent the absorbtion of other minerals. Try hard to get your zinc from food, not pills. Too much zinc can also inflame acne. It can stir up an imbalance of androgens (hormones) in the body, causing further activity in your oil glands.

Everyone is so caught up in vitamins as quick fix. Instead, investigate info on foods that are helpful for acne sufferers. You will find that this helps, faster, longer, less expensive, and without side effects.

However, I have found that when my diet is lacking or if I have binged on high-fat, high-sugar foods, there are a few safe vitamins/supplements to turn to! It took me nearly 10 years to narrow this list down and for the last 5 years, these have been the most effective:

Evening Primrose Oil***excellent for helping calm red marks, swollen bumps, cysts, flaking/peeling, oiliness, damage from "picking", and even sunburn***

Burdock Root***helps detox the body, without purging the skin too quickly***

Garlic***helps boost the immune of your skin cells and helps destroy bacteria***

B-Vitamins***especially Niacin, and sublingual if you can find it...helps the nervous system and helps flush impurities from the blood, take in combination with Vit C and really boost it***

Acidophilus is great if your acne is yeast related. Yes, some acne is actually a yeast infection of the skin. People that break out only around their mouth, usually yeast or food allergy.

Some things work better for some people. I'd advise you to invest $30 in a good natural remedies book. I bought one years and years ago and learned what is good and what is trend. The trends can cost you a lot of money and may not be good for your individual chemistry. You'll also learn about the toxic doses of Vitamins, Minerals, and herbal supps. Always do your own research before buying and taking anything. We don't know if you have allergies or medical conditions that may preclude you from taking even the most harmless of supplements.

NEVER TAKE ANYTHING JUST BECAUSE A STRANGER SAID THAT IT WORKED A MIRACLE FOR THEM. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, DO YOUR HOMEWORK, THEN CHECK WITH YOU DOCTOR IF YOU AREN'T SURE. Remember, no one is overseeing the supplement market.
