Apple Cider Vinegar Helped My Adult Acne

by Jamie

Finally I am not ashamed.

I have been battleing adult acne since I was 25; I am 29 now. I never had acne until then and it took control over my life.

I lost chances to make friends and to meet guys because I was so ashamed of my face. I stopped drinking soda and drank nothing but water and stopped smoking and that didn't seem to work completely.

I tried everything from OTC(over-the-counter) products to natural products and oils. I never went to a dermatologist because I couldn't afford to.

I have to say that it is important to make sure you have a good cleanser that cleans all the dirt and makeup off your face and a good gentle exfoliater daily has helped; also a good moisturizer helps tremendously. Jojoba oil is the only oil/moisturizer I can use. But even all of that I still had mild breakouts.

Then I started Braggs ACV. I put about 1 1/2 tsp in a 16.9 oz bottle of water with some honey; I also chew on a strong piece of gum. The taste isn't bad at all, but I have noticed that if I use 2 tsp in my bottled water that it kinda burns my throat a bit so I have stopped that.

I drink 1-2 bottles a day with 1 1/2 tsp ACV and my face has been clear for the longest it has been in a year. My acne scars are also fading. I can actually wear no makeup in front of my family and my kids without being ashamed.

I am not embarassed to be around friends or guys anymore either. I no longer have to hide my face! I have been doing this for a month and even during that time of the month my skin looked great. It's improving daily and the color of my skin also looks more colorful, not so blah.

I will continue to use this and maybe take a break then continue then take a break and so on. It's worth the try because it can clear your face. I couldn't figure out what was causing my acne other than maybe it was hormonal, but even then it never went away and ranged from mild to moderate.

I am so so so so greatful I gave ACV a chance. Make sure you get the ACV with the mother in it. I had to get mine from the natural foods market and it isn't expensive at all.

Acv only helped with my acne it did not cure it. I didnt add that title, the person who runs this site did that. It did help with my skin and helped with the acne to an extent but I stopped drinking it. It was making my urine smell funny. I use it with my aztec clay now. I searched for so long for something natural with no long term luck. I am currently using Proactiv everyday and the aztec clay with the ACV once a week. I was terrified to use Proactiv, but I tried it and its been almost 3 weeks and the results have been great for me. I am also still using my johoba oil since it has been a blessing to the texture of my skin without causing breakouts.

acv for my break outs
by: Anonymous

I have decided to start drinking the acv, I am doing fully organic acv and adding some honey to taste, its horrible!! I hate the taste, but I sure notice a very nice complexion already! My skin is alot softer, and my break outs aren't that bad. I really just started drinking it about two days ago, but the break outs arent looking too bad now, and my pores are look smaller already. Am also using it as a toner, but I am unsure how much I should be drinking?? a day?
