UV protection: Zinc protects skin from UV rays by acting as a shield and preventing penetration. It’s included in many broad-spectrum sunscreens as zinc oxide and is less likely to irritate skin.
Healing: Zinc helps fight infections, reduce inflammation and speeds up healing of minor wounds and skin irritations.
Acne: Zinc helps boost immunity, reduce inflammation and scarring due to acne by reducing oil production and clogged pores. Both oral and topical forms are effective.
Scalp treatment: Zinc is effective for treating dandruff and fungal infections of the scalp. Many dandruff shampoos contain zinc pyrithione to prevent fungal growth and remove excess skin cells.
Skin rejuvenation: Zinc lessens the formation of damaging free radicals and protects skin lipids and fibroblasts from UV and environmental hazards, even though it’s not an antioxidant like vitamins C and E.
Pharmaceutical uses:Pharmaceutical drugs regulate hormone production in humans, primarily growth hormones and sex hormones. They are also used to increase insulin secretion by the pancreas.
