Woohoo! It's taken me days to read all 21 pages but I'm finally here
Washing with honey first intrigued me because although my skin got much better when I switched to an all-natural cleanser and moisturizer almost a year ago, I still have occasional acne that just won't quit. And the texture of my skin (esp. on the sides of my face) is really bumpy. Argh.
Someone mentioned (a few pages ago) that the location of pimples on your face may be an indication of what is causing the acne. Anybody know what sides of the (face from temple to jawbone) might mean? I have lots of zit scars there from when I was a teenager.
Also someone mentioned Accutane. Does it cause any long-term side effects? (My dermatologist prescribed it when I was a teen. Just wondering.)
For moisturizer, I've been using some coconut oil I got from Rose Mountain Herbs. I am SO pleased with it thus far. My regular (all natural, no mineral oil) lotion moisturizer worked great when I first started using it a year ago, but recently I've noticed my face starts to feel ucky after a couple hours. Feels like I haven't washed my face yet that day. But the CO has completely solved this problem. It's so light, my skin just feels good all day. (My 17mo toddler approves of it, too. He watched me applying my moisturizer and stuck his finger in the pot, then wiped it on his forehead. Dipped his finger in again and stuck it in his mouth, then declared, "Tasty!")
Does anybody do a castor oil treatment with steaming or hot washcloth (as per this article
)? Does it go well in combination with the honey washing?
Lastly, is there anything that can help heal or fade acne scars?
