Does Spearmint Tea Help Acne and Hormonal Imbalances?

Acne is just…a jerk. It’s a common skin condition that affects so many of us – not just physically but mentally. Whether we are 12 years old and just starting puberty, or 30 years old and still dealing with breakouts (as our founder Camille found herself doing, until she came up with Averr Aglow on her own), it’s just incredibly frustrating. 

While we have many wonderful, natural, cruelty-free Averr Aglow products that help with acne, we also have many recommendations that, added to your routine, are tried-and-true additions to paving the way to clear, glowing skin. Today we’re going to tell you about one of those superstars - Spearmint! Teas in general are great, but today we focus on Spearmint, which restores balance to the body when your hormones are out of whack. Spearmint tea also slows your production of sebum or skin oil. We’ll get more into the benefits of spearmint tea for hormonal acne treatment, but let’s dig down into the issues of acne, first. 

What is Hormonal Acne? 

Acne erupts as a result of your pores being obstructed by blockages created by pus, clogged pores, oils, dead skin, and all the yucky stuff that we don’t want to think about. It can come in many forms, including whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. You can find out more about each of these invaders in a previous blog of ours!

Hormonal acne is characterized by breakouts that are associated with hormonal fluctuations caused not just by puberty as mentioned above, but also by menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. That’s pretty much the whole lifecycle of being a woman!

Sometimes people might be tempted to take the route of hormonal therapies, such as birth control pills or medications that target androgens (which increase sebum). But these treatments may have nasty side effects, which we at Averr Aglow don’t believe in. Our products are all-natural to ensure that your skin heals gently. Before we get into those products that will be of great benefit to clearing your acne and making your skin glow, let’s talk more about Spearmint.  

Spearmint Tea Benefits for Acne

Spearmint tea has long been valued for its medicinal properties, including its ability to promote digestion, relieve stress, and support hormonal balance. Here are some of its properties, with which it is bursting!

  1. Regulation of Androgen Levels: Research suggests that drinking spearmint tea regularly may reduce circulating levels of androgens, thereby decreasing sebum production and preventing acne formation.
  2. Anti-inflammatory Effects: Inflammation plays a significant role in the development of acne, exacerbating existing lesions and contributing to their rebellion. Spearmint tea exhibits anti-inflammatory properties, which can help soothe inflamed skin and reduce the redness and swelling associated with acne breakouts.
  3. Antimicrobial Activity: The antimicrobial properties of spearmint tea make it effective against the bacteria P. acnes, which is implicated in the toxicity of acne. By inhibiting the growth of acne-causing bacteria, spearmint tea can help prevent new breakouts and promote clearer skin.
  4. Hormonal Balance: Spearmint tea contains compounds that can regulate hormone levels, promoting more stability within the endocrine system. By restoring hormonal balance, spearmint tea helps to alleviate hormonal acne and reduce the frequency and severity of breakouts.

Drinking Spearmint +  Using Averr Aglow Products = Clean, Clear Skin! 

Here are three great tips for daily use with your Averr Aglow skincare plan! 

  1. Drink Spearmint Tea Daily: Brew a cup of spearmint tea using fresh or dried spearmint leaves and drink it daily – even better, drink it during your Averr Aglow skin routine! Try to consume at least one to two cups of spearmint tea per day to experience its therapeutic effects on hormonal acne.
  2. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: While spearmint tea can be beneficial for managing hormonal acne, it is essential to complement its use with a healthy lifestyle. Eat a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, stay hydrated, get regular exercise, and manage stress through relaxation techniques like meditation or yoga.
  3. Use our Clear Skin Kit! This collection of products does wonders for your skin and combining it with Spearmint is the perfect combo! Within the Clear Skin Kit lies these four products: 
  • Clarifying Hydration Dew – Love this refreshing spray with the most wonderful scent! Perfect to reduce irritation and redness, this burst of misty goodness preps your skin for cleansing and keeps your microbiome in balance. Not to mention, it’s an Earth Day Beauty Awards Healing Lifestyle Award Winner!
  • Radiant Cleansing Nectar – Gentle exfoliation and cleansing help knock out acne-causing bacteria that leave your skin refreshed and clean. 
  • Clear Skin Elixir – Also called “Liquid Gold” this overnight face mask balances out redness and soothes dry, oily, and combo skin. It also smells wonderful, fresh from the earth. 
  • Flawless Nourishment Cream – This moisturizer provides deep hydration and nutrients to give you a smooth and healthy glow.

      And don’t forget our wonderful new Vitamin C Serum for Acne! With raving reviews from customers, this blend of Vitamin C ingredients is kind on sensitive skin, reducing dark spots and acne scars, for a smooth, even skin tone. And “smells incredible, like citrus,” says customer Mark L. 

      Finally, these final few suggestions are the icing on the cake – or rather the glow on the face! 

      Avoid Picking or Squeezing: This can have the opposite effect – it can make the pimples or acne worse!

      Limit Sun Exposure and Use Sunscreen: Excessive sun exposure can worsen acne and cause inflammation, even in the winter. 

      Manage Stress: Stress can exacerbate acne, so practice stress-reducing activities such as meditation, or deep breathing. And as mentioned above, exercise is always beneficial, in so many ways.


      Spearmint tea offers a natural and holistic acne remedy, addressing both the symptoms and underlying causes of this common skin condition. By regulating hormone levels, reducing inflammation, and inhibiting acne-causing bacteria, spearmint tea can help restore clarity and balance to your skin, while providing the perfect accompaniment to your Averr Aglow Skincare Routine!
