Acne is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the skin around the hair follicle and associated sweat glands. I’m not aware of the benefit of lycopene to prevent acne. A recent study showed that lycopene from TJ might attenuate the risk of CVD by reducing the concentration of important inflammatory molecules related to atherosclerosis (Colmán-Martínez M, 2017).
