These days, though, we're obsessing over new (and expensive) types of honey, like raw honey, rooftop honey, and the most popular, manuka honey. Manuka honey is touted as a superfood 'healer' which can treat wounds, cold and flu, sore throats, and more. But how real are these claims, really?

Scars can be divided into two categories: dark marks that are actually a result of...

Without exaggeration, acne can ruin a person's quality of life, which is why the dermatology industry has put immense effort into producing the most powerful acne-blasting treatments possible.

It was first used by the Maori community in New Zealand in the early 1900s because of its incredible anti-bacterial and healing properties (rumor has it, it can be used as an effective hay fever remedy).
