Okay, I have a problem with some of this. Honey is a very weak bleach method, if at all. It’s also not a moisturizer. It’s an emollient, meaning it softens. Only water is the true moisturizer. Anything else locks in moisture and conditions. Lemon and turmeric works better than orange. The honey mask listed is pretty complex. I suggest egg and honey. Buy the raw honey, not the fake stuff in stores. Most store honey is fake or laundered, which removes any good properties. Egg whites and yokes are awesome in skin tightening. Don’t go over 15 mins. The same mixture is pretty great for hair as well. You can even add oatmeal if you want to lightly exfoliate your fast as you wash it off. By that I mean actually rub it on your face in small circles for a few minutes before clearing it off. It’s messy to apply/wash off, but worth it every 2 weeks.
I think it’s really important to share these stories. Ages ago now, a friend gave me their family saga of dealing with lice and I remember feeling so glad that I wasn’t going through that. Well about a year later we did–but I was much better prepared for the turmoil because of what I’d learned. (I still remember my daughters favorite stuffed dog, which turned into a curly haired dog when I put it in the hot dryer since she couldn’t sleep without it). At least the lice are over faster–you have my sympathies!
