  1. When I read papain I knew I'd seen that ingredient in one of my products before and yep the Victoria Principle skin care line I bought awhile back has papain in the gentle enzyme treatment. It is a great little mask. The note on it says this advanced formula enzyme treatment with breakthrough papain (natural papaya enzyme) works fast, thoroughly and gently... I never used it regularly enough to get rid of scarring, I used it like once a week and it made my skin feel great. I'm thinking I m
  2. Thanks for the reply Maya! I just used local raw unprocessed, unfiltered honey. I don't have any reactions when I eat it, though I do have some allergies. I don't think I've ever been stung by a bee so not sure about that. I used some Manuka honey on blemishes awhile back and found it to be a bit harsh too so maybe I am allergic. I just haven't ever heard of anyone having a bad reaction so was wondering :-s
  3. I have a nasty cut on my forehead that I don't want to scar so I've been reading how raw honey helps to heal it, so I applied it with a bandaid. I was wondering is it suppose to sting like crazy for like the first 30 minutes to an hour and then just feel a little irritated the rest of the day? Also when I took the bandaid off to change it, I noticed it did seem to be bonding together a bit, however it was also more red and a bit more swollen. Do you think I'm having an allergic reaction to ho
  4. The mandelic acid can really start to flake your skin up, especially when getting used to it and using it twice a day. What I've found is when you see flakes, put egg yolk on your face and leave it there for 30 minutes. It will harden and dry up. Put it on thick. Then instead of washing it off I just kind of pick the egg yolk flakes off, because they usually come off easily and then rinse the remaining residue. Then my face seems alot softer and a lot less flakey! The egg yolk is great for
  5. I'm not sure whether chocolate could cause a zit over a 5 hour period, but I know that it can affect one's body over a 5 hour period especially on an empty stomach. I have a lot of family that's diabetic and the chocolate changes your insulin levels and this can happen within 5 hours. I think raised insulin levels from the sugar could affect the skin in 5 hours, and definitely affects the skin if raised consistantly over a longer duration of time.
  6. To Shiny: the cleanser is great, but I use a scrub to get bits of dry skin off when I see them. I don't really like using the tape method for this, as the serum does enough exfoliating on it's own and the tape just makes it harsher. I haven't got the mandelic scrub, it said it had jojoba beads in it, but you might want to get that to get rid of flakes. I have another cleanser with beads in it I'm using now. I think it is a good pimple preventer, but just be sure not to overdry your skin
  7. I just wanted to say I've been using the whole line of mandelic products thanks to this site, and really like the results / I especially like the toner and night time moisturizer, I find even though the moisturizer is a bit thick it doesn't break me out and really softens the skin. I can't use the serum every day yet because my skin peels pretty quick, but with the other products the peeling is not too dramatic and my skin still has a good ph balance. I'm just trying to take it slow so I d
  8. I really agree with Lylat, don't let your skin control you and ruin things for your future, don't let it win. Either way if you stay home or go out you aren't going to help the condition of your skin, but by staying in you are also just creating a mental condition, depression. Sure going out and having people stare at you isn't fun either, but at least you are living and not in solitary confinement. When you are out just look around you at everyone else's flaws and realize people are not real
  9. Last time, but I really like this website! For those who say the Bible has "holes" and discrepencies, this website is a good place to look http://www.apologeticspress.org/rr/abdiscr/abdiscr.htm
  10. http://www.apologeticspress.org/scrspeak/2...03/ss-03-56.htm This argues some about why the God of the Bible is the true God
  11. http://www.apologeticspress.org/rr/rr1995/...tm?overture.com This article is pretty interesting, kind of goes along with what was being said about proof for God but totally agrees it's not science.
  12. Unguarded, all of history is one big story. You believe in it because there were many people who reported it, eyewitnesses. There are many different eyewitnesses for the Bible many not even in each others lifetimes, however everything they say holds true with the earlier's prophecy's and I don't find contradiction. Researchers have found evidence that Pilot did exist and different things from the Bible do check out. How do we really know Joan of Ark existed or anyone, especially the furthe
  13. Ok, I forgot If you read Matthew 27:62 Pilot set a Guard outside the tomb, you can read it all. They were being extra careful that he wouldn't get out of there, since he predicted it. He would have had to go into a coma and became invisible to get past it all.
  14. I forgot to answer you about the coma. Well there was a large rock blocking him in there, I don't know if a coma would get him thru that. Also Jesus was resurrected in the flesh so that there would be proof, you can read John 20:24, the disciples wanted to put their hands in the print of the nails for proof. Thomas got to touch so he could believe. verse 29 says Jesus said to them, Thomas because you have seen ME you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.
  15. Lylat, thanks for the comment you made earlier, I really don't want to fight with you guys! Religion is hard to understand, and predestination verses free will is hard for anyone. God predestined us to be adopted sons of his, it says this in Ephesians 1:5. We were also predestined to have an inheritance from him in Ephesians 1:11. Romans 8:29-30: For whom He foreknew He also PREDESTINED to be conformed to the image of His Son that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover wh
  16. Ok, I read most of the above article, I would have read all, but I'm not terribly interested in evolution. Sure I have always believed in some evolution like natural selection, things do change over time. Animals have changed, I can believe in the Bible and believe that too, you're right that's not mutually exclusive, and you are right religion is not scientific and based on faith, we agree. It makes sense there would be different fossils of animals, similar yet different, not all animals a
  17. Hey again! I figured it's Sunday so I had to give a sermon. =; No just kidding, I am sorry if I insulted you guys for not understanding, you just seem to gang up and sometimes I wonder if you are as open minded as you claim to be. I didn't intend to sound better than anyone and realize I'm not and every one needs to do as they feel right, I just wanted to bring a different view. If you believe in any God at all, you should just pray for understanding and wisdom to guide you
  18. If I knew you personally I could tell you more because I think a guys personality really plays a big part in how attractive he is. Let people know that you're confident in yourself and they will be like who's he!
  19. I think your social life will improve after your acne clears, mine did, and unless your body dysmorphic it just makes sense that you will be more confident. I still have some scars but am working to clear those, I found guys were more attracted to me afterwards not only because of my skin but because I was happier and more care free. I guess if I was happy and care free before maybe it would have been the same. I'm married now, and when I get a zit it's really not that big a deal anymore bec
  20. God says he is the alpha and the omega, that's who's authority I base his being eternal on. If you don't know what that means looks it up. I don't know if you guys are just playing dumb or really are. I'm not going to re-explain everything I've said over and over I really don't think it's necessary. My parents raised me to judge things for myself and I have and I think my judgement on this is it's getting to be a waste of time, if anyone has any real questions they can pm me. Now keep the
  21. Everyone here has a right to research every religion and decide for themselves what the "true" religion is, I believe in the Bible for many of the reasons stated before, if you discount all religions then I guess you don't believe in any God which means by default you pretty much have to believe in evolution which I think is more ignorant than any religion. There is not going to be total proof of any of the above mentioned things so you take any of it on faith. And no one made God because God
  22. After my face started to clear I thought I had heavy scarring too, but it just looks that way right after it starts to clear. In time in will smooth out a lot more. Try some mandelic acid, it works good, and you should treat the scars while they are new and not wait. Like Mercer said you never know what the future holds, and it sounds like you're due some good times so hold out for them
  23. 7) If you've never heard of Jesus, do you go to hell? Ok, I'll quote some scripture O:) Romans 10:17-18 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say have they not heard? Yes indeed: "Their sound has gone out to all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world." I think this is still true today, the Bible has been spread thruout the world and I think that it is a testament to it's authenticy that it still is. I know of stories of people in count
