How to Beat Acne with Thyme

Posted by

Thyme tinctures may be more effective at destroying blemish-causing bacteria than benzyl peroxide, the active ingredient in many anti-acne face washes and treatments, according to researchers from Britain's Leeds Metropolitan University.

In the laboratory study, the scientists examined the effect of different herbal tinctures, including thyme and marigold, on the bacteria that causes acne. They discovered that thyme destroyed the most bacteria—even more powerful than the standard concentration of benzyl peroxide.

  • I have always fought with really bad acne. T'was only a few weeks ago, when I discovered this life changing system to finally remove my catastrophic case of acne. First I somehow discovered this youtube video and I was careful at first but after that I began browse for more reviews and I decided to give it a chance. And I'm happy that I did. My facial skin is so better that I'm no longer afraid to go somewhere and it took just 7 weeks! Take my word, this system works. I have gave a shot to many systems like this, but this one works!
