Hello from rainy and cloudy New York!
A few weeks back I was suffering from an awful rash and acne breakout that was caused partially by hormones and the Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser.
After much research, I came across a study done in 2015 by the American Academy of Dermatology, that noted two cups of organic spearmint tea ingested daily reduced inflammatory acne lesions by 25% after one month and by 51% after three months.
Balancing your hormones is often your main goal when you suffer from hormonal acne (the deep, painful cyst type lumps that take a lifetime to heal on your jaw, chin, and neck. Drinking two cups of spearmint tea per day can help balance your hormones and reduce your acne or even heal it up completely.
Spearmint eliminates oily skin and clogged pores because it slows down the oxidation of fats. If you have oily skin it can stop the sebum from oxidizing as quickly (this is where it hardens and clogs pores then goes rancid and is perfect for bacteria growth and lots of lovely acne), so less oxidizing, less acne!
Spearmint is the most potent of the different mints in killing skin disease-causing bacteria and yeasts. In addition, spearmint has the most anti-inflammatory activity of the mint varieties.
For as little as $5 dollars this tea can shift your hormones while banishing acne for good.
Thus far, my skin has cleared up significantly just after one week of drinking two cups a day.
Who knew two cups a day could keep acne away!
Sending sunny beauty vibes! 💋
