Zinc facilitates apoptosis, or programmed cell death, which is a natural part of your skin renewing itself. If apoptosis is delayed, as in the case of zinc deficiency, skin cells stick together instead of dying and sloughing off like they should, which leads to clogged pores. Zinc kills acne causing bacteria, reduces inflammatory response to bacteria when it invades a blocked pore which can cause severe irritation and reduces keratin (a tough protein that binds skin cells together. Too much keratin prevents cells from separating and leads to blocked pores, as is the case in acne. By reducing keratin zinc helps to keep skin pores open). Zinc is a DHT blocker, meaning it reduces the effect hormones have on the skin (excess sebum production). Zinc is also a powerful antioxidant.
