Lysine is one of the main components of collagen along with other amino acids. Collagen provides the skin with its firm, healthy structure. There is some evidence that in addition to its essential role as a building block for collagen, Lysine is also important for the normal immune function of the skin and possibly helps fight, p. acnes (the acne bacteria).

As with all supplements, they should be used only when one has proven deficiency in this specific compound.
