zitFew things can deflate confidence more than waking up with a big ol' honkin' zit. I know. The word is even gross. It's the ultimate killjoy. And the worst part of all is it's not like blemishes just magically disappear in an hour! We have to live with them for a few days. And it sucks.

But. There actually are a few ways to drastically reduce the life of a pimple -- to a day or possibly even ... an hour. Yes, I'm being serious.

Excited about the basil one, mine went bitter, then I was careful with trimming it, then it was still bitter, then read once it goes bitter, you can never get it back, and now have all this bitter basil, and thought it was useless.  Plus the allergy fighting/natural remedy, since I really like non-bitter basil.

lou, fry your basil leaves and add that to your pastas or dishes, it works really well in bringing out the anise flavor. or just mix your fresh chopped basil with some strawberries, balsamic, and sugar... YUMMMMM
