Non-english speaking here, so some of my sentences may sound weird.
How do i start..
I have had acne from when i was about 13 years old up until currently 21.
In the beginning, it was BAD. Then after a few years i cut down on sugar and it went from bad to "okay".
Then i cut out dairy, and it got even better.
I recently cut out Gluten, and for the first time in my life i actually had "almost" entirely clear skin.
I was thrilled, and thought "how can i make it even better?".
I went online and read that replacing coffee with green tea should be good for acne, so i thought: "Well, i do drink coffee, so maybe i should do this switch".
I went out and bought some very good quality Loose leaf Green Tea and started drinking 2 cups a day.
This quickly went up to about 4 cups a day, and it was actually very calming to drink instead of coffee.
But after about a week, i went from not having a breakout in a month, to now breaking out pretty bad.
I looked online, and found that a lot of people had the exact same experience: Very oily skin, and breaking out in chin and forehead area.
I've never had a problem with coffee, so i actually doubt that its the caffeine (however, that is the trigger for most people).
A bit longer than i expected, but my question is mainly: Does anyone get acne from green tea, but are able to drink coffee?
