Green tea extract is a potential ingredient in treating acne

EGCG (epigallocatechin-gallate) major polyphenolic compound present in green tea was found to exhibit therapeutic properties such as anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties both are which are believed to be beneficial for your skin. 2016 Study explored the effects of polyphenols present in green tea and its effect on sebum production and acne vulgaris. EGCG is anti-androgenic – androgens are hormones that your body naturally produces.  Fluctuating levels of androgen can cause your sebaceous glands to overproduce sebum which could actually result in acne flare-ups. EGCG actually helps reduce lipid levels thus potentially slows down the overproduction of sebum which in turn helps in lessening the development of acne. To further validate this claim, 2016 Study exploring the supplementation with green tea extract to improve acne in post-adolescent women where subjects took 1,500 mg of green tea extract for merely 4-weeks. It was then concluded that subjects showed a significant reduction in the red skin bumps and causes of acne.
