Protects skin from harmful UV Radiation and treats topical irritations like acne.
The mineral Zinc helps repair damaged tissues and heal wounds. Like vitamins, minerals are essential to your overall health and development, helping the body grow and take care of itself. This mineral is particularly effective in treating topical irritations and injuries, such as acne, skin sores and minor wounds, by helping skin cells to regenerate. Using Zinc topically prevents and alleviates the inflammation and scarring associated with acne. It may also help nip zits in the bud by reducing the amount of natural oil, or sebum, produced in the skin. It may also help heal damaged skin around acne that does develop. Some research has indicated that acne formation results in part from a lack of Zinc. Another use for Zinc includes protecting skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.
