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.
