Honey and Skin Care Anti-aging Skin Care

Question: I have been having many outbreaks of pimples on my face lately. It might be due to heatiness as I have insufficent sleep due to my working hours. Any recommendation for such skin problem now? I have been using aloe vera now, but after a week, there is still no effect. Please advise if I should continue using aloe vera gel or should I try a new product, like honey perhaps?

Reply: Actually, there are a few things you should do. If you suspect that sleep could be one of the factors that encourage pimple outbreaks, get back to more normal sleeping hours. Hormonal disruptions due to stress and lack of sleep are not helpful in ensuring good skin care.

It's not very fair for anyone to tell you whether you should stop the use of aloe vera gel, as generally, there is no skin treatment that works overnight. With continued use, the raw Manuka UMF Honey and cinnamon combination has been reported to be effective in treating skin conditions because of its high antibiotic activity. You may want to give it a try. And where severe acne (red and swelling) is developed, always see a dermatologist.

Question: I am suffering from severe hair loss. Please advise the honey remedy for this which would be fast, effective and long lasting. I heard that usage of honey will lead to graying of hair. Is this true or scientifically proven? Please let me know.

Reply: I am not sure how the concern of greying hair comes about, but frankly I haven't heard of this negative effect or cause before. On the contrary, many shampoos or hair treatment products containing honey as ingredient promise healthy and shiny hair. Also, many people have found honey to be a beneficial ingredient in treating hair loss.

For hair loss, try this remedy which is found in: What You Need to Know When Looking for Hair Loss Remedy?

"Make a paste by mixing olive oil, 1 tablespoon of Manuka honey and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Massage on the scalp and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Wash off and repeat it for 3-4 times a week."

As also mentioned in the article, in the case of severe hair loss, it's necessary to find out the cause of it through your medical doctor. Effective cures stem from the root of problem.

Question: I've made a cold processed soap with goat's milk and honey (500grams with one teaspoon of honey added to the lye mixture). Is it safe to use this soap on infants? The idea was to make a super sensitive soap for children with dry skin and exema. Did I just ruin it by puting honey in it and will it be toxic to babies? Or will it be okay? The honey is all natural from a friend of mine's bee hives.

Reply: It's safe to apply natural honey on baby's skin. But to make sure that all ingredients in the soap are harmless to the baby's skin (e.g some people are sensitive to lye soaps), you can first start using it on a very small area on the baby's skin, and then apply to other parts of the body if there's no negative effects.
