Zinc Gluconate and Chelated Manganese

Posted by S on 01/05/2008

Hello, I was very intrigued and impressed about your cure for large pores. I am having a hard time finding Zinc Acetate and Manganese Sulfate. I've tried to find a website that sells these but am not having any luck. Where do you get yours? Is there a website you can direct me to? Also, If I take Zinc Gluconate (powder) and Chelated Manganese, will this work also? Specifically, what kind of Manganese should I be looking for if I can't find Manganese Sulfate? Thanks so much.

The chelated manganese and zinc gluconate can be used as a suitable substitute. I buy them from a local drug store and sometimes from chemical suppliers, but that's not convenient for most people.

A large pores has many causes, but if the circulation is restricted a few pores will sweat, causing an oversized pores too. Hence, if we allow many sweat glands to work, the few pores wouldn't be doing overtime, and hence, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water is taken at least twice a day or three times. However, a 2 tablespoon of lemon juice, freshly squeezed, with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day. This will caused the pores to rid of sweat. Alkalization cause dilation of tiny skin capillaries, causing many sweat glands to work without a few skin pores hogging all the work, and hence no more large skin pores.

The other thing I have found is people with large pores is they don't wash their face often, causing many tiny pores to be blocked allowing the larger pores to work too much causing large pores.

The problems with using traditional soaps is that they don't really clean the face. Most soaps are astringent, and this is not helpful either, worsening the skin problems. The oils and other things still remain on the skin! I resolved this two ways. I used alcohol (used ethyl alcohol - the kinds they add in vodka) and wipe clean my face with a white towel. I sometimes use milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide and peppermint only, NO aluminum added) also as a cleaning solution using a white towel. Then, followed by a water wash.

The newer remedies believe it or not, that is MOST effective for me is the baking soda and it takes effect within the month with smoother skin. I found the obvious, by mistake, and it is this mistake that I found this helped with large pores the most. I however prefer a lemon and baking soda, but ACV and baking soda, or even just baking soda will work. The three remedies I used are (your choice!)

2 tablespoons of lemon juice plus 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in 1/2 glass of water at least, twice a day at least.

2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking in 1/2 glass of water at least, three times a day.

The ones I did used to found accidentally was:

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water, three times a day.

Those are the foundation to resolving large pores that needed to be addressed FIRST. Any one of the above will result in smooth skin and smaller skin pores. The more complicated acv and lemon will work better, but a baking soda alone will work too.

How long does it take for pores to close after starting to drink the baking soda, lemon, and water every day?
