How To Get Rid of Acne: Scientific Evidence


Hey guys it’s Anita Tee from FactvsFitness.com today we’re going to be having a little chat about acne and a
common cause of it that you can actually use at home in order to improve your
skin and help your acne acne is a really common problem especially in teenagers
also in adults and it occurs across a wide range of demographics and let’s
face it it’s a no brainer nobody likes acne and overhaul is just
stink so the topic of today’s video is going to be discussing a common cause
and contributor known in science but maybe not known as much by the general
public and that’s zinc zinc has a massive
relationship with acne in fact several studies have shown that acne patients
very very often have low levels of serum zinc when tested as a nutritionist it’s
not such a surprise the daily recommended intake of zinc ranges from 8
to 11 milligrams depending on your age and gender
however it’s estimated that approximately three-quarters of people
do not meet this daily intake the connection between zinc and acne has
actually been repeatedly shown in studies when they supplemented zinc and
it’s improved people’s skin and overall acne in fact some studies have actually
shown zinc to be as useful as systemic tetracycline drugs so it’s as useful as
these pharmaceutical drugs which is amazing for an all natural mineral to be
able to do the mechanism of how zinc is involved in acne is not fully understood
however there’s three common theories that I’d like to share with you guys
today the first one is a hormonal acne theory this is especially applicable to
teenagers or anyone experiencing a hormonal imbalance this theory is based
on acne being caused by an excess of androgens in your body particularly
dihydrotestosterone or DHT which is particularly known to be involved in
acne what zinc is able to do is is actually able to block the conversion of
testosterone to DHT therefore clearing your skin the second mechanism is that
zinc can actually act directly on the microbial strains in your body involved
in acne so it can act directly on your bacteria that are involved in these acne
processes this is huge because it means that supplementing with zinc is both
improving the root cause and the of your acne the third series i think is
actually depleted during times of stress as it’s needed for repair this is
significant if you get stressed out of work or during exams or anything else
and you notice breakouts during that time that can actually be a good
indicator that you may have a sink insufficiency or deficiency regarding
forms of supplementation zinc sulfite has actually shown to be more effective
for severe acne & masaya 9 bouncing to be more effective for mild to moderate
acne if you guys are wanting to up your zinc
intake but aren’t so into supplementation this can also be done
through another way the magic of food by increasing zinc rich foods such as
pumpkin seeds moister toffee nuts or my personal favorite cocoa powder which I
put on absolutely everything you guys can actually increase your zinc levels
and help clear your skin improve your acne and be beautiful from the inside
