Post Anyone tried topical Zinc?

I have a friend from Australia who applies topical Zinc sulfate to her skin every day and this has completely cleared her up. I believe she used something called "Zink Drink" by Metagenics. I looked it up onlne and it was manufactured to be taken orally. But she swears by it and so do many of her friends. I was wondering your opinions on this or perhaps you've tried it? It might be pointed out that Zinc is a main ingredient in many acne products so there must be something to this. Zinc is supposed to have antibacterial and skin healing qualities to it. Let me know your thoughts
