stress zit

OHMYGOSH! adsense set up an AARP ad on my blog. are they crazy?!?!? i feel a stress zit coming on right in the middle of my forehead. good thing i can combat this with an easy and natural remedy. what you will need is:
baking soda
band aid
at bedtime, pour your normal cleanser into your hand and add 1-2 tsp of baking soda. cleanse as normal, paying a little extra attention to the area where the blemish is. the baking soda acts as a gentle exfoliant. rinse well and pat your face dry. put a DROP, just a little bit, of honey on the white pad part of a band aid and place it over the offending pustule(the technical term for a zit, but i think both sound equally bad).
when you wake up the next morning and remove the band aid-voila! the zit will have either disappeared or been reduced so dramatically that you can successfully cover it with make up. why does this work? it sounded ridiculous to me, but i tried it and was pleasantly surprised. apparently the honey clears up the bacteria and helps with redness and inflammation.
dont let a glaring, angry, zit ruin your glamorous holiday look this season, try this easy zit cure. let me know if it works for you.


  1. thank goodness for make it at home health tips other wise they would have us paying all we had for the little things we need in life

  2. Thank you for this idea! I use antibiotic ointment but it rarely works. Tea tree oil works ok, so I'll give this concoction out next time!
