Honey is my Enemy! :(

WHY! WHY! Why did I do this? I am so upset right now. Okay here's what happened. My skin has always been smooth with no breakouts or blemishes. I noticed this past week I had about 2 very small dry patches on my face. So I searched the internet for some natural cures. I came across a few websites that suggested HONEY will leave your skin smooth and add moisture to it. So yesterday I decided to put honey all over my face. I left it on my face for 1 1/2 hours. After I washed it off, those sites were right it did leave my skin moisturized. But it also left my skin with the ugliest rash/breakout. I am so pissed! I have a major audition coming up next weekend. Plus I also have an interview with a talent agency in a few weeks. I need this gone, like now. Right now I'm sitting here with aloe vera gel on my face, praying to God that it will go away.

Here's the comparison shot of my face: BEFORE/AFTER

I believe I'm the only person in the world that honey has affected this way. I searched to see if anyone had the same issue, but everyone had great results. This definitely taught me a lesson. DON'T FIX IT IF IT AIN'T BROKEN!!!

Sew-In Pics

Here is the sew-in I did a few weeks ago. I totally forgot to post it. Anyways, it came out perfect. I braided my hair back vertically and then sewed the tracks across. I kept it in for 5 weeks and followed the regimen in my last post. I just took it down today. The takedown was fairly smooth and easy. I basically soaked my hair with conditioner and water, and my braids just slips right apart. I must say I'm very happy with the results. I actually gained an inch of new growth.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to put another sew in back in my hair until the end of October. I have a boatload of auditions and interviews coming up and I'd rather rock my own hair while I do those things. I was trying to hold off on the relaxer til' January, but I need to look fresh for a very important audition coming up. My career is first priority over my hair...lol. But I promise to post my relaxer pics when I relax in October.

Here are some more pics of my sew-in:
