will taking zinc and magnesium pills help build my testosterone levels for facial hair growth?

No: Facial hair growth is more complex than just testosterone. Growth depends on the genes you inherited. Zinc and magnesium do not increase testosterone. Facial hair does not the person make. Be happy with who you are.
