  1. This year, I've become increasingly frustrated with my acne since it has started appearing more frequently in strange places - like my forearms, hands, fingers, and stomach. While in the past I put my acne concerns on the back burner, recent events have made fighting this acne a much higher priority. It's at least somewhat socially acceptable to have acne on the face - or on the back and chest - but not other weird places. It's just scary and frustrating to think that I might not have any c
  2. Hey guys! I just wanted to start this topic on the over the counter product, Tea Tree Oil, and post my journey with using this product. So before going any further, I just wanted to give a brief history on my acne. I've had acne since I started puberty...so maybe when I was around 12. I never really knew how to clear it up and did not have much help with my skin so I was practically on my own and I had no idea what to do. All I used at that age was an astringent and it really didnt
  3. Ok, so some background: I've had acne since I was in about 8-9 grade (I am now in 11). I now have moderate-severe acne. Tried SA (didn't work and sometimes dried my skin), BP (worked a little, but not worth the dryness, Epiduo (worked a little, not worth dryness), Baking Soda (didn't work, dried me out) I just quit the Epiduo a few weeks ago after two months of trying. It was painful, dried me out, and wasn't worth the minimal results I saw. Coincidentally, around the time I quit Epiduo I
  4. Has anyone had skin improvements by drinking rooibos tea? Green tea didn't do anything for my skin so I hope someone could tell me more about their experience with rooibos tea
  5. First entry! Here I will keep track of my current regime, and update with posts anytime I change anything about my regime. Morning and Evening* Wash face with Fresh Farmacy by Lush (calamine powder, chamomile, elderflower, lavender, tea tree oil, rose absolute, marigold flowers) Tone with Breath of Fresh Air by Lush (spring water, sea water, aloe vera gel, rose absolute, patchouli oil, rosemary oil, seaweed absolute) Moisturize with Celestial by Lush (vanilla water, almond oil, almond
  6. Hey Everyone! Its been a while since I've been on this site. I took the I dont care about my acne anymore approach, and its really helped. However, I came across something that I needed to share. I have extremely oily skin. I love to drink tea, and lately i've been drinking Gingko Kava-Kava tea at my local coffee shop, which has spearmint leaves in it. After a week of drinking a few cups I noticed my skin didn't get as oily. So, I went out and bought some spearmint tea and it has
  7. My Story: My adult-onset acne began in early 2010. I still don't know what triggered it but for the next 3 years, I suffered ugly red zits... mostly on my forehead. Sometimes on my nose. It effected my self-confidence and made me feel frustrated and depressed. I had long suspected a dietary cause. But 2 seperate dermatologists told me unequivocally, "there is no proof of a connection between diet and acne". They then prescribed antibiotics and harsh topical creams. As a result, I suffered w
  8. Does Tea Tree Oil work as well as benzoyl peroxide for acne? This has been one of the most popular questions that I've seen asked, and out to seek answers. If you don't know who I am, my name is Taylor Thompson, and I'm 8 years acne free with the use of 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. Whenever I stop using benzoyl peroxide, I breakout... So of course, I don't consider my acne cured, I just consider it treated. I'm super happy with the results I have obtained by using Acne.org, and other produc
  9. I have suffered with acne for nearly 8 years, but have finally found something that works for me. I would love to share it with you and hear your response if anyone goes ahead and gives it a go. It is a combination of BP 10% at night, with a green tea bag as a topical during the day. Simple, but effective! The good part is that it doesn't end up bleaching your clothes during the day. Read more about my method at my blog: www.beatbacne.blogspot.co.uk Hope this helps, even if it's onl
  10. Hey guys, I have moderate acne on the sides of my face and on my chin that doesn't seem to go. Recently I was told dairy could be playing a big part in my struggle to get rid of acne and that I should cut it out. I have also browsed the internet and I only hear good things about the health benefits of green tea and it's anti inflammitory properties. So today I popped to the shops and picked up some green tea and almond milk as a substitute for my beloved milk. Just wondering if anyone has
  11. So many people have said that green tea is excellent for the skin. I have suffered from acne that can range from being mild, moderate and moderately severe. Currently my skin has completely cleared up and I'm doing my best to keep it this way. I have come across this pill called "Tegreen 97" by pharmanex. You may want to read this for how green tea impacts acne.. http://www.stopacne.com/herbal-remedies/green-tea-acne-treatment.htm And I am a believer of the statement that green tea defin

  13. I haven't really had the need to return back to Acne.org for a few years when I got over acne. When I was 18, I broke out all over my face and struggled with finding the right skincare products and taking regular trips to the dermatologist. Since then, I've only had mild breakouts and have kept them under control. All of a sudden, I'm experiencing a whole other new kind of breakout: adult cystic acne. For the last 2-3 months, I've been breaking out in cysts. They are large, painful, under-th

    I always knew tea was a better option then coffee when it comes to your skin which is why you will find me drinking it in the afternoon vs. my age old habit of filling my coffee mug at the two o'clock hour. However, now I am reading about so many other benefits to it that I am really excited to try. Simple... yet so low cost! Check out this link that has many of the benefits all grouped together! I would suggest go for organic to get the most of the benefits! I have done the face comp
  15. Hi, I've decided to cut out my daily big cup of coffee because I think that the milk and high caffeine content could be triggering my very oily skin and hormonal acne. I'm drinking 1-2 cups of green tea a day now, strongly brewed. If this diet change is going to help my acne or oily skin AT ALL, when will I experience a change? Could it be as soon as a week if the green tea really is going to improve my ridiculous oil production? Or is it one of these things that will take about 3 months?
  16. I have had really bad acne to mild acne for the past 10 years, and I am barely in my 20s ,so its been a while. I have tried everything: all rx meds (except accutane), all rx creams, OTC creams. I tried natural remdies but those worked only short term. I found that eating a bit of sugar caused breakouts, so I knew that it was internal. I have been doing everything right: eat vegetables, drink almond milk, water, B vitamins, lemons, omega 3, probiotics, 3 day juice diet, water diet, nothing signi
  17. Hello everyone! I have an interesting question that Google and other search engines can't seem to answer.. So I thought I would turn to you lovely people on Acne.org for a little insight on this... So I've been drinking Decaffeinated Green Tea for about 7 months now (to help control my acne) and last month I started to notice a lot of hair falling out from the top of my head. I didn't think anything of it, thought maybe it was stress but it has continued for weeks and is still pretty per
  18. Alright hey guys! I'll get straight to the point. I have some ice pick and box car scars on my forehead that really bother me. Luckily, I can cover them since I have bangs. However, one small peak at those scars and I want to chop my head off lol. I have a bit of scarring on other parts of my face but I would say that those scars don't really bother me, it's mainly the forehead ones. But, I've noticed that actual scarring isn't my only problem, I have a few red marks but most importantly, I have
  19. I tried drinking green tea for a week or two & my skin looked great...until a few days ago. Suddenly my skin's been breaking out something awful & getting really oily. It's not that time of month or anything, and was wondering what a substitute could be. I love tea in the morning, but I don't know if I'd trust green tea anymore. Peppermint, spearmint, lady gray, oolong...which one? And it'd help if you could list the benefits
  20. A few days ago, I started using green tea as an attempt to treat acne. I drink about three cups a day and rub the bag over my face, mostly on old scars. I have a few questions about this method. How effective is it? Should I use the leaves inside the bag on my face? How long will I have to wait to see changes? I'm washing my face with a tea tree wash and using a toner as well
  21. Has anyone successfully incorporated drinking green tea into helping acne? If so how long did it take and how much did you drink a day? Does it work as a topical?
  22. I have tried drinking green tea in the past. I drank cans and cans of Arizona green tea thinking it was helping my skin, but it was absolutely doing the opposite. There is so much sugar in those things but I didn't even realize because I was young and didn't care to really look at the fine print. The sugar spiked my insulin levels which then stirred up inflammation in my skin and whammo-zammo I had pimples up the ying-yang. I tried real green tea in 2011 with little results. It tasted horrib
  23. Help make my topical one So basically i've gone all out, i can choose between pure tea tree oil, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, apple cider vinegar, weak manuka honey. What do i do with all this? this is like the powerhouse of all acne treatments, is it good to combine them? Thanks for your help!
  24. Hello, I'm trying a new, au naturale acne routine. (well, mostly natural ) Just curious if any ladies have seen success with supplementing spearmint into their diet. (capsules/tea or otherwise) I've recently discontinued using spironolactone because the side effects freaked me out. I'm looking to try 100% natural remedies to try and balance them hormones! FYI, doing surprisingly well off of spiro, but I'm totally dairy free now as well, which may have been most of my issue, anyway
  25. Hey guys... Just thought I would mention this and see if anyone can relate. It started about November- when I stopped using my normal skin regimen because I thought it was causing some clogging and perhaps it was too much exfoliation for my skin. I was using - Neostrata Clarifying Cleanser- 2% BHA - Neostrata Toning Solution level 2- 2% BHA and 10% AHA. - Neostrata Level 3 Smoothing Lotion- 10% AHA. About a few weeks later- I began to get some cystic pimples. Which I had never had before- my
