  1. I'm hoping that I'm putting this in the right thread here but I need some help with healing a couple of open sores that I have ATM. Pretty much I've come to accept the fact that I have a problem with picking/popping things on my face and I tend to do it more when I'm under stress. I've been under more stress as of late so long story short I was stupid and picked a couple sores on my face lol. To avoid me picking at these more for the next couple of days (having these come to gross, crusty sca
  2. Hey guys, the 7 year battle with problem skin has finally shown some results! I had literally tried everything to combat spots ranging from antibiotics to benzoyl, gels to over the counter medicines and nothing ever worked. However, since the start of March I tried a new regime due to the fact that I read somewhere that spots (non hormonal) are caused by two main reasons 1)bad diet and 2) the liver not being able to cleanse your blood properly. I did some research and found that coc
  3. Hello Everyone! If anyone has been reading my blog thus far, you will know I have been on the regime (drugstore version) for about a month. I can honestly say that benzoyl peroxide is a very effective acne/blemish treatment - at a cost. The dryness, roughness and overall uneven skin texture is a trade off for fewer pimples and potentially clear skin. I found that my skin was so rough and uneven that it just didn't look great, even though I had fewer pimples and blemishes. Doing some research

    Honey Mask Backfired?

    I have pretty severe acne and my face is usually always red around my mouth, cheek and parts of my forehead area. I'm a 20 year old male who has a family history of acne, mom mainly has it, sister has it, 2 of my 3 brothers has it. I've been breaking out lately only around my mouth and chin area. Some say that this is a cause of hormones while others say it is because of the food im eating(oils of food going on my lips onto my chin/mouth area). Not sure what is exactly the cause but
  5. So ive been reading about honey and cinnamom face masks...ive been researching natural ways to.help acne and acne scars...has anyone had any luck with facemasks? i tried honey and cinnamon last night on my forehead and nose area and my skin felt do smooth and tighter...tonight i will be exfoliating with brown sugar and almond oil (i did this on my forehead last night too) and then the honey with cinnamon on my lower part of the face.. What Are your thoughts on this? im tired to getting harsh
  6. I was using a honey and lemon juice mask and my skin seemed to be improving slowly. I added oatmeal to the mask because of the positive things people say about it. My skin has gotten worse since adding oatmeal. Not too much worse but I noticed it. I'm wondering if my skin just doesn't like oatmeal or if I'm going through a purging process? Has anyone dealt with this?
  7. Has anyone tried royal jelly long term? I started taking it last week once & sometimes twice a day on an empty stomach, and so far I noticed that my sinuses are better. Also, I had fewer allergic reactions to things like dust. It's supposed to boost the immune system, and has no side effects (unless you are allergic to bee products). Has anyone tried royal jelly?
  8. Hi guys, What are your thoughts about this idea. Many people say that by regualrly massaging with certain oils and washing face with manuka honey in the morning. They have finally managed their acne. Both of these are processes which affect acne to a superficial level. unlike diet. So do they work even without a diet change (ofcourse that would be a plus). If yes, can we conclude that acne can be controlled by what you put on your face alone as well?

    First Update

    Ok! So a brief history. I was a late bloomer with acne, it started getting bad my senior year of high school and peaked my freshman year of college. I had pimples all over my face, mostly on my cheeks, around my mouth, and my chin. They were those nice inflammed suckers with a white head you just want to pop. I assume the stress of going away to college had alot to do with it but I was a mess, and had a ton of scars. I started retina around november that year as a last ditch effort. My doctor ha
  10. I have heard some say that when the use lemon/ lime juice they experience irritation. One thing I have found is the use of honey, preferably local, helps to reduce the slight discomfort. All you do is smear a little on the lemon/ lime wedge, or mix a little in with the lemon/ lime juice. Does anyone else have any other tips? Hope this has helped.
  11. Hi guys! I’ve been struggling with acne since I was a teenager (I’m 25 now and still struggling lol) but here’s what I wished I’d known in the past. Natural remedies are the best and supplements help a great deal too. For me, I’ve switched to using aloe gel and jojoba oil as my moisturiser and castor oil (anti-bacterial) for my acne. I also use a raw honey, lemon, cinnamon and nutmeg mask once every 2 days. Also, I’ve started taking some supplements because I highly suspect the cause of my acne
  12. Honey is incredible for your skin thanks to its antibacterial properties and hefty serving of skin-saving antioxidants. Whether you're looking for an inexpensive DIY solution or a powerful skin treatment, raw honey can help you regain your glow. Also honey is superb for healing burns and small cuts. It's also a humectant, which means it helps keep your skin moisturized. Because of all of these amazing qualities, honey is thought to treat acne as well. What benefits can honey have on your

    What Helped Me Fade Moderately Severe Pih (Pics)

    A little background on my acne story: I've always had little-no acne until October of 2011 when I had horrendous break outs on my cheeks. Prior, I'd only get pimples (whenever I got them) on my forehead and nose. This break out was not normal for me, so I tried ProActiv, Clinique acne solutions, and Neutrogena to no avail-- It actually made my acne worse! My little 'pimples' quickly turned into cystic acne. Acne being my #1 self-esteem dropper, I made an appt. with my family doctor to get a ref

    Day 1

    Yesterday I started my new skin care plan. In the morning I put raw honey on my face and let it sit for like three minutes. I then take a hot wash cloth and lay it on my face then wash the honey off. I found that this leaves my face feeling great. It feels soft and not oily at all which is surprising for me because I have really oily skin. After all the honey is off my skin, I pat my face dry and apply my apple cider vinegar toner. At night I did the oil cleansing method with grapeseed o

    Honey Is My Secret Weapon

    I've been putting raw organic honey on my face after washing it and leaving it on for about 10 minutes and it's been working wonders! I've been doing this for about 3 weeks now and I've seen major improvements. Honey mosturizes skin and can help with hyperpigmentation, it has natural antioxidants and other benefits that I cant recall off the top of my head. You can also try an almond honey mask that is great for exfoliating Here's a link for that:

  17. Hey guys. I'm new here. Anyways, as most of you-- I basically tried EVERYTHING there is to offer in the market but nothing ever worked for me. Ever since I was 10 (which was when I first started having my periods and now I'm 19 nearly 20), I was already experiencing acne breakouts. My mom would send me to the best dermatologist every Saturday in my city 'til I was 13. Constant extraction from the doc. Constant shit on my face and it would never ever stop! So my dermatologist then suggested Ac

    Honey

    This is my story I had moderate to severe acne vulgaris when I realized I needed to do something. I was smoking a pack a day, lots of weed and every drug you can think of I took on regular basis and drank a lot to and ate nothing but mcdonalds and other fast food any and all junk food was my diet with a few 52 ounce sodas every day and absolutely no water and very poor hygiene. One day I was with friends and the looked at me like I was a monster and started treating me differently which was a re

    Happy New Year peeps! I hope this year will be best year yet for your skin, self esteem and confidence. Here's hoping! I just HAD to make a post about a wonderful treatment I've been applying to my skin since December 26th; it's none other than the aspirin honey mask that I'm sure a lot of you guys would have come across when google-ing for acne remedies like I'm sure almost all of us have done countless times. Basically it's aspirin pills (I use two pills of 300 mg dosage) dissolved in a so

  25. Greetings All! I have never written on the site before but have referred to it soooo many times that I feel like I have to give back now that I have found some success. First about me: I'm a 28-year old female who had mild acne from 13-17 (T-zone), which then advanced to moderate acne (it hit my cheeks). Nothing worked, or it worked with reduced effectivity: Tazorac; Retin-A; Differin; antibiotics, BP, etc. At 19 I found B5 blogs that suggested it would inhibit the production of sebum and s
