On my quest for good nutrition I added quality organic green tea (decaf) to my diet last week and next day got 1-2 inflammed whiteheads. Thought it was a fluke. Kept on drinking the decaf green tea (2 cups/day) thinking how healthy I was being and each day woke up to several more inflammed whiteheads...very surface things but still inflammed with a bit of pus (sorry). Today woke up to 4 and oily skin. I've been clear for months and months now...this was the only change. Then I remembered I cut out green tea years and years ago but couldn't recall why. Think I remember now!
Just thought I'd share in case anyone else may have this reaction --- which goes against almost all info on net about green tea. Looked back through this site for any similar experiences and came across old thread about this.
I am incredibly sensitive to caffeine and hormones so it could be that even this so-called decaf has eneough caffeine to be an issue. And supposedly there are some studies somewhere indicating that green tea can increase DHT. Too tired to track down right now but will eventually.
