Estrogens in general help acne since they use up some of the sex binding globulin. This leads to decreased activation of testosterone. Estrogen itself also causes decreased oil production of the sebaceous glands.
There are many phytoestrogens in soy isoflavones. Lessers, but still abundant amounts, are found in yams and red clover. I suppose you could try these and see how they help. Warning: if you have breast cancer or a strong family history of breast cancer these should be avoided since they could worsen an estrogen-dependent tumor.
