How Zinc Works
Zinc's anti-inflammatory properties help the body to reduce swelling and redness in acne patients. Studies show that patients who were treated with zinc noticed a decrease in active breakouts compared to those who didn't. Since zinc also helps wound healing, it can help to reduce any residual acne scarring
How Vitamin D Works
Vitamin D has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which are beneficial for your skin. Antibacterial properties of vitamin D can help fight bacteria that are causing acne. Acne also leads to inflammation which can be controlled with vitamin D.
How Probiotics Work
Probiotics help increase the amount of beneficial bacteria in the body and on the skin. By increasing the number of “good” bacteria, there is a decrease in the counts of P. acnes (“bad” bacteria) on the surface of the skin. Probiotics target one factor contributing to acne formation. Probiotics also inhibit production of inflammatory cells that contribute to acne.
How Vitamin A Works
Vitamin A encourages the growth of new skin cells whilst breaking down dead skin cells. It can also regulate the amount of keratin being produced by your skin and prevent dead skin cells from sticking together and forming acne-causing blockages in hair follicles.
