Green Tea Increase or Decrease DHT Hormone and Acne Relation

by Sue
(Washington, DC)


I'm curious about the connection with green tea and whether it increases or decreases DHT (which I guess is a hormone that can cause acne).

I used to have great skin and the past two years nothing has worked. My last resort is either probiotics to help with my gut, and then I either have to choose the oral acne pill or birth control pill.

But I drink a ton of green tea (2-3 cups a day) and would this have any effect on my skin? What other teas help with inflammation - calendula perhaps?

Thank you!
