In Topic: Honey And Its Potential In Treating Acne.

29 September 2013 - 04:26 AM

That sounds like a great research topic. Raw honey can be unfiltered though, so do you think it might be less sanitary? There are some types of raw honey that say filtered on the label, so I'm guessing that most raw honey doesn't get filtered.

What do you think of clover honey? Do you think it has the same benefits? I accidentally bought clover honey instead of regular one and have been using it as a mask...it helps with inflammation but I don't think it's as effective as regular honey. 

Sorry i've been gone so long! No, the human body is designed to handle far worse than anything unprocessed honey would contain (insect parts ect). I will note though that some bacterial spores have been reported in honey, newborn children up to one year are susceptible to infection but our adult immune system is far to strong for any infection to take hold. There are different types of filtering for honey, in terms of nutrition, eating honey in the honey comb (propolis) is fantastic, honey comb is so incredibly dense in nutrients and is antibacterial in itself. Any honey that isn't heated above 40 degrees is usually fine. Most processing of REAL honey doesn't take away any helpful effects as long as its not "creamed honey". I've read a little about clover honey, apparently it is one of the weaker honeys around... i would suggest something like buckwheat, its like the Guinness of honeys and its very dark colour suggests a high nutrition content.  :) 

i use dabur honey in my oats.am unsure if its all 'organic' but its a big OLD and reputed brand thats been there since my grandmum's era.

can i expect any 'good in gut' happening with this?

Its better if you eat the honey on its own, the oats would dilute the effect i would suspect. But thats a very good honey! 

I have honey on my face right now smile.png


Raw honey of course. I washed my face, then rubbed some honey all over my face, rubbed it in nicely so it doesn't drip (just a thin layer). Maybe I'll keep it on overnight, I've had good results with that in the past

It makes your skin so smooth! 

I eat a tsp of royal jelly & raw honey 2x per day.  And 1/2 tsp of propolis 2x per day.  It's really making my skin glow : ] and I have less inflammation. I love this stuff it made my face so much clearer.  I haven't tried using it as a mask though.. I think I'd rather supplement with it.

Propolis is one of the most nutritious foods around "In general, propolis contains 5 flavonoids, about 30 minerals (minerals promote life-activity of the organism), vitamins B1, B2, B6, A, C, E,… it contains various aromatic organic acids, caffeine acid, cinnamic acid, antibiotic compounds and others.  It has from 8 to 17 amino acids including several essentials. It also includes material from the secretions of saliva from the glands of bees. Such materials include some unsaturated fatty acids, which are potent antioxidants."  i mean no wonder you're feeling good.

In Topic: Smoking And Acne

02 July 2013 - 07:16 AM

I smoked cigarettes and i suspect that gave me a lil acne. Now i've smoked weed quite a few times now and  i'm not advocating smoking weed but it feels like that actually did quite a bit for my skin. I got the munchies like mad and i ate a load of stuff that i shouldn't  which would usually give me acne..... but it didn't. 

On several occasions infact.

Now i'm not sayin theres a definite link but....


I'm just puttin it out there...

Thanks guys ya quitting is tough eusa_doh.gif.  I've been really tempted the past week but I just keep thinking about getting a nasty cyst the next morning and I fight through it.  Almost 4 weeks since my last smoke banana.gif  !!

The fabled success thread, never thought i'd make it. 


Anyone reading this, go through my previous content if you wanna find posts about my acne experience,  the link above tells you how to get rid of that last nagging bit of acne. 


Next week i'm going to a nightclub to celebrate my 18th with 12 other people who are on the guest list.  Acne forced me to eat well and exercise and because of it i'm looking good, that is to say i've never been more confident. I just wanna say to anyone on their last legs to not give up. Clear skin is not a carrot on a stick, even though it feels like that sometimes, it will come if you stay focused and remember the real reasons why you're doing this! 

If im honest, i did it for a girl! But it turned out she weren't that great! 


feel free to PM

Great job and thanks for the information!


Personally, it's hard for me to recognize stress when I'm under it. As a result, I just try to take it easy and breathe deeply as much as possible throughout the day. I take whatever time I have to calm myself.  If I'm driving in traffic, I'll use that time to do deep breathing and sort out any niggling issues. Throught the day, I make a conscious effort to slow my mind down when it's racing all over the place. I practise smiling as much as I can (sounds foolish but it works - just smile, whether you feel happy or not). I can report that I feel calmer and happier, and this shows in the skin.

So true, its been proven that you do get happier even if you force a smile. Have one on me :) 

In Topic: Gut Flora And Leaky Gut. After 5 Years I Finally Found The Root Cause And I...

28 October 2012 - 05:27 PM

i've just had 7 bananas, had some weird craving out of the blue, i'm not stressed but it's in the back of my mind as to whether it will break me out further. I really hope i don't.
