Been a few months. Just wanted to update my progress. I stopped doing the honey and switched to a moisturizer after the worst of the 'crepe-paper' look that my forehead in particular had was gone.
My skin has improved 85% from where it was even three months ago. The licorice (now I take less, 2 capsules of 450 mg a day) settled my hormones and resulted in clear skin (mostly) for me. I used to have this permanent inflamed look to my skin all over it and that is gone. I have at a given time two or three zits, nothing major. I don't want to take more licorice to counteract this as I find it made my heart race at higher levels. I also recommend ten-day or two-week breaks from the licorice after 6 weeks of taking it. Hope this helps someone! If you think you might have hormonal skin problems then PLEASE give licorice a try!
