Adjunct only: Soy is promoted by the "natural healing" community as a source of estrogens; ironically, "greens" publish disinformation about estrogens in the environment causing us terrible harm. I hope you'll see through the huckstering and get your acne treated scientifically. If benzoyl peroxide / retinoic acid haven't cleared you in a few weeks, you'll need your physician's prescription-strength choices. ...Read more
Adjunct only: Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related disease.

Adjunct only: It will probably not clear you and i'd be pleasantly surprised if it even helped. Zinc is likely to upset your stomach, and if you take a lot, you can make yourself copper deficient.

I bet it won't: "sea salt" that you buy is essentially just overpriced salt. Nobody can or should test the hundreds of "pop" acne remedies.
