This amazing news can be shocking to those who are not previously aware of it. According to Dr. Sonia Batra, this is all due to one of the active ingredients present in the dandruff shampoo: zinc.

Everyone has a type of yeast on their skin, which is known as “pityrosporum”, which is believed to be one of the potential causes of dandruff overgrowth. This yeast is also believed to be a source in an acne-like rash formation after too much sweating. Fortunately, pyrithione zinc is a great ingredient that can help alleviate this issue. In order to use dandruff shampoo to help deal with acne issues, it is a simple process of washing the affected areas with the dandruff shampoo, leaving it on for several minutes in order for it to sink in and deal with the yeast build up, and then can be washed off.
