Disclaimer: I am not a Doctor but I really want to relay a home remedy for acne I have seen with my own eyes.

What is one of the only foods that doesn't spoil ? Answer is HONEY... Why: it has anti fugal and bacterial properties..

One of my wife's friends has a daughter who was really starting to break out in spots and painful zits.. My wife told the daughter to wash her face (soap and water) and then apply honey to her face for at least 10 minutes before going to bed.. rinse the honey off after the ten minutes without soap..

Absolutely amazing what this has done for the girl in less than a month..

It is a hand me down that has been used by many people who live in the sticks and do not have dermatologist to run to... My wife still does use honey as a skin cleaner and blemish remover...... her completion and facial skin is as clear and smooth as a babies butt..

Oh.

I was going to say peanut butter as I am fairly certain there is a jar from 1999 still in use in my cupboard...

Ya....I was gonna say rice. But nevermind! And you are right about the honey. I've used it myself.

It makes sense, because sugar also doesn`t spoil, that`s why there`s isn`t a date on it.

You are correct - honey legitimately does not spoil. Interesting to think of it as being a home remedy for acne, I'll have to remember that.

I immediately thought of a Big Mac and fries, but honey makes sense and is way more useful. So does any honey work or just the £15/jar manuka honey?

I recall reading that a clay jar of honey was found in some pharaohs tomb,thousands of years old and still edible.

I agree and it does not need refrigeration. Although peanut oil will tend to rise after awhile..

For those who answered/commented thanks... I just think it makes sense and, well it works from what I have seen.

Manuka honey is from the blossom of a tea tree tree (the same you get tea tree oil from) which is why its properties are great for killing bacteria.

My mrs suffers from nasal problems and since using mnauka honey it has reduced drastically.

Just make sure not to use with boiling water as it kills off most of the beneficial properties.


Its also good used with fresh lemon juice to make traditional lemsip rather then the chemically produced version, to kill off colds and flu.

Nature has a cure for everything

Honey doesn't and part of it has to do with its liquid factor too. Bacteria need a certain amount of moisture in order to grow and honey is just wrong for that. I could describe this better if my husband were awake; he knows the technical terms for it.

sugar doesn't spoil because it doesn't have water. The key to bacterial growth: water and food. Same with all Earthbound life.

Honey has water. it has sugar. But it doesn't spoil...that is special.

Other foods that won't spoil, like peanut butter (although the oils will still go rancid and taste terrible), lack water. Fungus can still grow, but its more difficult.

Ancient Egyptians used honey as a layer for treating injuries, for said antibacterial properties. Modern day we tend to use silver cream, as silver also kills bacteria.

One of my old friends who fought in vietnam said that they put silver pieces in their water bottles to purify it. Science is cool!

It does have water, but a low ratio of water which makes it resistant to fungus. The anti-bacterial stuff is something else.

Settlers going west would put silver coins in their milk to help it keep longer.

The active ingredient, methylglyoxal (MG) can be found in most honeys but manuka has a higher concentrate and that is why it can be used to treat MRSA as well as simpler skin infections such as acne.

The only I know that you have to watch with peanut butter is even in a sealed jar their are bug eggs and after years can lead to them hatching and destroying the product. At least that's what I've been told by my boss at work.
