    Dear Mary M, With 2 teenage sons I know all of the tricks. Zinc is a very useful mineral for treating acne. The RDA for women is about 15 mg. daily. My experience with this treatment is in about 1 week you should notice a difference. 1 package of Emergin-C (best price Trader Joe's) daily with the zinc is what i do for maintenance. For over night breakouts that suddenly appear, mix 3 aspirin with a couple of drops of fresh lemon juice and apply( works wonders). The aspirin combats the puffiness and the lemon takes care of drying up the acne. Hope this helps.
