In Topic: Honey to spot treat

25 April 2013 - 11:57 AM

I used this last night on a newly forming pimple (not quite a cyst, but had the potential to be big). I put honey (I *think* it's raw, but I can't be sure as it's local and the label is very minimalist) on the spot and covered with a small bandaid. This morning, I pulled off the bandaid, and noticed an oil spot in the middle of the band-aid's gauze area. I'm sure this was the honey/bandaid soaking up the stuff in the cyst! The cyst is still there, but it is no longer painful and appears less inflamed. I work from home so I'm continuing to treat it with honey today. Fingers crossed it disappears. 


FWIW, I've heard that honey does two things to acne - either shrinks it into nothing, or quickly brings it to a head so it can be extracted without much ado. In my opinion, these are both very favorable options. Fingers crossed it keeps working!

I read through this with great interest and expected there to be a ton of responses...I can't believe no one wrote back!


Congratulations on finding your skin "cure"! That's amazing. I'm just beginning to investigate the properties of oatmeal for acne in addition to the application of cod liver oil (for it's vitamin A content) to the skin. This is mainly because after 3 months on the regimen, my mild-moderate acne had gotten worse. Like you, I'm trying to change things up a little bit without abandoning all the old fixes.


Anyway, just wanted to say a huge thank you for this. I may try the oat cleansing formula.

Thanks Robert. :). I hope you're right! I guess I figured that since I'm a fairly mild case it would happen fast. Patience...

In Topic: Tanning on the DKR

Thank you! I'm thinking Ill try a sunless tanning cream "trial" a couple months before the wedding and see how that goes. If it sucks, I may try a bit of tanning. I havent broken out from tanning in the past, so it might be worth a shot. I also saw a suggestion from someone else to try tanning, but cover your face with a towel ( so that it only hits your body). Then, use tanning lotion on the face to try and match it. That's not a bad idea. I'm also thinking that since ill be getting makeup done on the big day, theoretically my makeup artist should have a problem matching my face complexion to the rest of by body :)
