Zinc: Anti-Aging, Anti-Acne and Anti-Spot Ingredient

Zinc for Skin Care

Although there is NOTHING new about zinc, the mineral is being talked about more and more. Largely because it works wonders for the skin holistically. That’s why it is used to treat rosacea, dermatitis and acne. In this article the benefits of zinc for skin care are explained in detail.

How Zinc Benefits Skin?

Zinc has the ability to limit the over-production of oil while stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. And being a powerful antioxidant, it inhibits the negative effects of free radicals and oxidative stress. There are also studies showing that zinc can inhibit factors that cause hyperpigmentation, over-stimulation of hormones, scarring and sun damage.

Zinc for Skin Firmness & Rejuvenation

By limiting oiliness, the likelihood of congested pores and pimples is decreased. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, skin is strengthened and rejuvenated, wrinkles are diminished and firmness is stimulated. By protecting the skin from free radicals, the effects of pollution are inhibited. Finally, it also helps even tone and diminish blemishes. It is like an all-in-one treatment: anti-aging, anti-acne, anti-oxidation and anti-spot.

Zinc and Skin Type

Zinc works well on any skin type, including sensitive skin. The only people who should NOT use it are those who are allergic to zinc.

How to include it in your routine?

Zinc is much more effective when you use it as a supplement and it is supported by other beneficial ingredients for the skin. Which step of your routine you use, is totally up to you and what you’re looking for: a toner or serum for a more intense dose or a cream for something a little more gentle. You can also use a sunscreen formulated with zinc.
