Hey welcome to acne.org, im fairly new here aswell but love that i can talk so openly to people about the issue of acne. about a year ago now i was seriously depressed because of my green tea and sought out help for a professional, while i was there i told them one of the reasons was because of my acne and as they knew a little about it they told me to use green tea. so i did and the improvement was huge, ive never stopped drinking it as it helped me so much. you dont get immediate effects but after about a month of drinking it , it should start to show its effects, its reduced the amount of spots and cysts i get so i can focus on managin scars etc and getting all around better skin..

Hope this helps. x

Hello, welcome. I have tried drinking lots of detoxifiers and taking supplements. They really helped my skin look healthy, but didn't really get my acne taken care of. I would recommend going to the Skintek website and completing the questionnaire. They will really be able to help you combat your acne.

Best Wishes,
