How to heal acne naturally (it worked for me!)

38 posts in this topic

Those GNC vitamins are $17! Ouch!

I want clear skin, but I can't afford a $17 experiment (and that's the on sale price)

Maybe later when I have more cash-when I graduate from college in June.

I take vitamins now that contain 100% vitamin A (50% as beta-carotene) anyhow and if that's the miracle vitamin that works the wonders, I think I'll pass on these.

Status: Clear through diet

Diet: Unprocessed meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts, water and coffee. No supplements.

Fitness: Exercise whenever the hell i want

Stop treating your personal experiences as universal facts. Please and thanks.

If you can't clear your skin through diet and overall health, you aren't doing it right.

Gotta bump this topic back up. Thanks for the info on this!

Been using a honey mask on my face for about 30 minutes every night for the past week and it seems to make my skin look awesome. Just makes my skin tone a lot more even. I went to Jewel(grocery store) and bought the only organic honey they had and it seems to do the trick.

I just hope this keeps on working

I found this thread like 2 weeks ago and I'm going to follow her routine. I've got 25,000 IU beta carotene, raw organic honey, and baking soda. Armed and ready! starting the BC today. I'm going to try to find a generic version of the hair skin and nails vitamins as there are no GNCs within a 200 mile radius of where I am.

I used plain ol honey (it was even in a plastic bear) at first and to be honest I had the most dramatic hyperpigmentation reduction the first time I used that (ovenight). After the first two times I haven't noticed much more fading, or maybe just a little. Now I use organic raw occasionally although this hasn't had any amazing effects.

sito I think the BC is worth a shot :)

Thanks RockingRed. i def. will give the BC a shot altho i am a male and i want some other vitamins as well.

My main concern is the Manuka Honey tho. >>> i'd like to know what type is best and if there is a UMF which i shouldn't go above>>

like the Active MGO 400+ (UMF 20+)>?? would that be too strong?? does anyone know?

because i heard you shouldn't go above 18+?

that's the one i'm thinking of getting.

what is the UMF thing you are talking about? I have no idea. so sorry no help here. the only thing I know about the manuka honey is that it has the highest concentration of enzymes or whatever.

UMF stands for UNIQUE MANUKA FACTOR>>> and is the trademark for the special antibacterial property found in Manuka Honey.

the higher the better supposedly, but i have read that using anything above 18+ for a facial mask is not good so i was just wondering if people can comment on this point.

sito how's it going? I've been doing the BC for just over 2 weeks now and to be honest I'm not sure it's had an effect. for the past 2 days I've had the best skin I've had for a while but I've got a lot of other factors going as well.
