^thanks for all the great info so far! i have been considering taking zinc, but i heard in high doses it can be toxic. My multi has 15mg and i'm assuming i get some from my diet too, what really is a good dose to take?

you should not take more than 50mg of Zinc per day. I have 50mg pills, and they have been approved by my doc as an acceptable amount. try not to go over this amount, but dont stress too much if you think you eat a diet rich in Zinc already, cause its unlikly it will be toxic unless you are eating a ton of zinc....too much of a good thing DOES apply with vitamins as well though, so just be sensible. plus, getting your supplements thru food is the best way cause your body can absorb it better, so if you eat a diet rich in zinc, thats better than taking the pill.

i know in a lot of the asian countries they sell collagen to put on your skin, and drinks with extra collagen inside. some people tell me it really works, and your skin looks better, but i don't think that's necessary to take yet (especially if you're still young). in addition to that you have to sleep between 10PM-12 i think... and if you think collagen supplements are too expensive, eating egg whites is good enough

yeah, you can take vit. E & A internally, once a day with food, and also rub the Vit. E on marks daily. its a good combo for skin!!

Zinc:
Zinc treatmentis very effective to reduce oil from the skin. It is also helpful to give birth to the new white blood cells and may protect the body from free radicals.
Zinc comes in the form of Zinc gluconate or Zinc Sulfate to prevent acne. Zinc picolinate is also necessary for removing acne and it is the combination of an organic salt and zinc. Zinc acts similar to tetracycline for reducing acne from the skin of body.

i have used Oil of Olay vitamin set for a long time. It worked wonders for me. But it is off the market in the US. I find little packets aimed at skin care is very beneficial in the long run. They tend to cost more but it is so convenient. You don't have to count how many grams of what it is done for you...

I would just take either a half of a regular, standard Zinc pill of 50 mg (simply split it in half--save the other half for next day). My mom works for a vitamin company, and knows lots about vitamins, and I asked her about zinc. she told me its imporatant to not get too much, but to not stress about it. some people take 100 mg of Zinc a day, but I'd stay with half of a pill, or 25 mgs if you get zinc from other sources and you just want to supplement it.

Okay.. seriously. I have been taking Multi Vitamins, and Vitamin E internally for 2 days. On each morning. My skin has totally cleared, looks much better. I actually opened the Vitamin E capsule and put it on the red mark and it's practically gone!
