I am a 28 year old female that has been suffering from mild acne since I was 23. I had some acne prior to that but nothing near the type I had when I was heading off on my honeymoon with huge painful pimples on my face. I was devasted. Since then it has come and gone with severity. I have tried antibiotics and proactive. Which helped but ultimately never made it go away completely. I have sensitive skin so alot of the benzol peroxizdes and such products completely dry out my skin.
I've been searching from some natural ways I could decrease the oilyness of my face. I think I might have come across something that works. I'd like to hear your feed back. I've been tryiing to drink as much peppermint tea as possible 2-3 cups a day. It's caffeine free so no jitters and loads of benefits. Its actually called Sweetdreams Tea, which has other things but peppermint.
From what I read mint raises estrogen levels simular to what birth control pills do. I personally don't take birth control pills so i was excited to hear about this side effect of mint.
I have defenitly seen benefits in the last week. I'm seriously amazed. I also have read that tumeric is a great way to help clear your skin topically and internally. I just bought this today and applied to my face. A little scary turns your skin yellow but it came off just fine. It makes your skin really soft.
