Our son has been having the standard “teenage” acne BUT with Hempermint he/we realized it really helps a lot (really really helps!). Not only does it help with the speed at which current acne goes away, I am convinced that it pre-empts some acne/pimples trying to start up. Even myself – I had one of those sore *not-yet-visible pimples (brewing) below the skin, added hempermint daily and the pimple never happened!! (I use Hempermint for muscle soreness as well – love it!)
