So for the past year almost, I've been using BP as my acne treatment. As far as I can tell, it helps keep my worst acne at bay, but it's never completely cleared me.
So I did a little research (and by research I mean google) and a little thing called green tea caught my eye. And it had me thinking twice about BP. Sure, BP kills bacteria, but other than that, it kind of ruins my skin. Green tea (used topically), however, is as good at killing bacteria as BP is, BUT it also has anti-oxidants, and lots of other good things for skin that I can't even pronounce Not only is it more natural and better for skin, but it's also DIRT CHEAP! Also, I do believe it can help heal red marks faster, and reduce oil, unlike BP.
ANYWAYS, I've decided to swap out my BP with a green tea bag, and just apply that topically. I'm a little nervous, because I've been using BP for so long, my skin might have a fit if it doesn't get its fill. But in the end, I think this will be better for me.
So my question, does any one approve of this? I know lots of people on this site cling to BP like life support. Maybe they think I'm being fooled by simple google searches where no one really knows what they're talking about.
Does anyone else use green tea, or has tried it?
