Zinc is one of the best supplements for acne. It helps increase your absorption of Vitamin A and keeps your Vitamin E levels stable in your bloodstream. If you are using harsh ingredients such as Benzyl Peroxide that are drying out your skin, you will want to increase your Magnesium intake, which not only improves skin elasticity but it also balances your hormones, which are often responsible for acne breakouts.

As a 15yr. old girl (this was 16yrs. ago) I started Accutane from http://goo.gl/l9qLGH . After the initial 30 days of my acne getting worse I started to notice that day by day the acne lessened and the pores on my face became smaller and I didn't have to constantly blot the oil off my face. I had some dryness but it was a small sacrifice to look in the mirror and not see these big ugly zits causing me to feel ugly and self conscious. I also started to look people in the eyes and not constantly worry that they were staring at the state of my skin, or to go outside in the bright light and have people thinking negative things about me. After 3 mos. my skin was beautiful, without a single blemish, and the pores shrunk back to normal. Although I had the dryness that everyone experiences, it was SO WORTH IT. People talk about depression as a side effect, but honestly I was so deliriously happy with the results that I can say I was never depressed for even one day. After 1 yr. of being off the drug I started to get a few pimples and went back to the dermatologist. She started me on a second course immediately. That was 17yrs. ago. My skin has been perfect and flawless ever since. I never get a breakout. I shudder to think how my life would have been if it wasn't for this wonder drug. I would recommend it in a heartbeat. It changed my life.
