Acne is a common condition that affects the surface of the skin. It often occurs during puberty, although people of all ages can develop it. Acne occurs as a result of the overproduction of sebum, an oily secretion of the skin. This overproduction of sebum can lead to inflammation and clogged pores, causing lesions to form on the skin. Common symptoms of acne include small red bumps with white, pus-filled tips, black marks at the surface of the skin, etc.
Zinc’s anti-inflammatory properties make it well-suited in treating inflammatory skin conditions. Researchers also believe that zinc might help treat acne by suppressing the production of sebum and fighting acne-causing bacteria.
A study has found that people with acne have significantly lower levels of zinc in their blood than people without any acne. Therefore, a person may be able to treat their acne by increasing their dietary intake of zinc.
Zinc is an essential mineral that the body needs to perform some important functions such as growth during childhood and adolescence, wound healing, enzyme activity, immune system functioning, cell division, DNA and protein synthesis, etc.
