    sharing my acne cure

    when I was younger, I had a lot of acne. No one helped me with ridding myself of it so scars developed after years. Even with the scars, I would still get acne.

    Then simply, I started using honey on my face. no special brand or kind. Just plain honey. Just like that, all my acne vanished. I thought maybe my body was just changing or my diet or something so I really didn't understand it. Every once in a while, I'd get a zit or start to feel one developing. I'd get out the honey and dab a bit on the area and leave it there for hours. Sometimes overnight. Within 24 hours, either it had been completely gone or that 'tender' feeling would be gone and it was vanishing.

    'Til this day, whenever I feel one coming on, I just take out the honey. I shaved the other day and a razor bump developed and the honey completely cured it.

    I've heard in the past that honey has incredible healing properties but I'm walking proof that it does. I've since told quite a number of people about this with their acne and for every single person, their acne was gone within days.

    Don't smear it on thick. Just put a safe bit on it so it'll dry on it and then wash it off later in the day. My experience was always best before I slept (just becareful not to turn or it'll come off on the pillow).

    Unfortunately, from youth, I was stuck with the scars from before the honey experience. That's why I do the saline stuff to try to remedy that. I know how traumatic both acne and scarring can be so whatever I can do to share or help, it's my pleasure.

    Thanks for sharing that with everyone, I'm sure someone will try it. I would but I have found my own cure. If my cure stops working I might give the honey a try.

    The main reason for this message is that you posted a new message on Skin Culture Peel 4000 for me.

    I am unable to see it for some reason. The last message I see is the one I wrote yesterday. Are you able to see your message you wrote earlier on it?

    Anyway could you let me know what you had said, I have been waiting to hear from you.

    Thanks,
    Jani

    if I'm not mistaken, I think I read where you had said that you can read the post now. if you still cannot, I'll repeat what I had said again.

    You are right. Honey does something to bacteria and that is why it is good for acne. I have used it too and it works good on current acne.

    What kind of acne do you have? I have moderate hormonal (i think hormonal!) and am a 20 female. Think honey would work for me?

    Thanks,
    20.

    no blackheads, some whiteheads but when I do get a zit, it's usually starts out as those painful large ones. the honey really helps it. the one I spoke about before is completely gone within the day.

    Honey? Really? My question is this: How are you applying it? Do you dab it on existing pimples to spot-treat? Or do you put it all over your face to prevent future break-outs?

    Re: sharing my acne cure

    well....i just read this post about 5 minutes ago....it was convincing so i just went and put some honey on my face...i smeared it all over my face...i have about 3 spots on my face due to mashing under-the-skin whiteheads...so I hope this gets the bacteria out of them and doesn't cause them to form a pimple. i don't really have breakouts....i mash under-the-skin whiteheads and this causes an infection....why i do this i have no idea, but...i'll learn one day.

    Re: sharing my acne cure

    no, I've never smeared it over my face at all!
    I just apply a dab to the area that has a pimple and then leave it there for several hours but most times overnight as your body heals itself in your rest state so the honey drying on your skin aids in this.

    just apply a healthy dab on the area and do not make it thick... just thin enough to cover the pimple.

    Re: sharing my acne cure

    Honey is very anti-bacterial. I remember once I went to a village fair and there was a stall selling all kinds of things made from honey by some local bee keepers and the old dear on the stall said to me "You should try this face wash and soap dear, it'll clear your skin up in no time" I just wanted the ground to open up and swallow me, I ran off and was almost in tears, she'd said that in front of a load of people and Ireally didn't ned reminding how everyone could see my spots. I never bought any though. I was about 15 or 16 at the time.
    Anyway as I was saying honey is VERY good for all kinds of bacterial infections and has been used for centuries.

    Re: sharing my acne cure

    just curious, would it make a difference if it's pasteurized or not? and i suppose you just use plain golden honey, not that white kind?

    and currantbun, did you at least eventually try using honey?

    i suppose i'll try this before going to bed, as i've just developed a wonderfully enormous new postule today.
