I don't have any links or statistics to show you... BUT... I HAVE heard that "Chamomile" is suppose to be good for your skin. Several tea's with ingredients to "help with skin" include chamomile as it's main attraction, but I have not come across this in the books that I actually read pertaining to acne alone (unless I missed it... the links to some of these books are on my front page). When people say "skin appearance", they could mean a number of different things (such as color, radiance, smoothness, wrinkles, etc...), and although it sounds wonderful, I have baby smooth facial skin with acne all over it. The smoothness makes the acne less painful and more tolerable now, but never actually got rid of it. If you type in "chamomile tea" in any internet search engine, they will frequently mention that there is a link between the herb and our skin, but no immediate links featured 'acne' and 'chamomile' alone.... unless you typed both words in at once. The only product I have seen (where I live) that had a DIRECT link between the words "chamomile" and "skin" was at a retain store called "The World Market" and it was up against a wall with several other teas. The only reason why I know what it said is that I held the bottle and read it out of curiosity. It's amazon page is right here which strangely does not mention the fact that the tea type is red and that it has chamomile as it's main ingredient---> http://www.amazon.co...et gorgeous tea
. The reviews have mentioned acne though.
I am pretty certain there is a link, but more people seem to prefer "Green Tea" to any of the other read, white, or black teas I have come across. I am sure that all are good for you in one way or another (and some have proven to cary multiple health benefits), but it is still unclear whether or not Chamomile has had any effect specifically on Acne whatsoever. Word on the street says it does though, so in my opinion you have practically nothing to loose if you try it out for yourself
. Always give something like this 3 months before you make a decision to stop though, and you'll have to be relentless and patient with it WHILE remembering to drink it every day. Best of luck on you search!
