Apple Cider Vinegar To Treat Acne
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is an effective natural bacteria-fighting agent that contains numerous essential vitamins as well as trace elements such as potassium. Also Malic (acid made from apples) and lactic acids found in the vinegar help to soften and exfoliate your skin, reduce red marks, and treat acne on both your face and body. Apple cider vinegar also tones your skin to the proper pH. (see the pH scale below)
How to Buy The Best Apple Cider Vinegar
Natural Apple Cider Vinegar is made by simply mashing fresh, organically grown apples and allowing them to mature in wooden barrels. This approach boosts the natural fermentation benefits of the crushed apples, which differs from the highly processed distilled vinegar found in supermarkets.
When the apple cider vinegar is mature, it has a dark, cloudy, web-like bacterial froth called mother, which becomes visible when the rich brownish liquid is held to the light. All-natural vinegars that contain the mother have enzymes along with minerals that other vinegars in grocery stores may not have due to over-processing, over-heating, and filtration. For this reason, it is recommended that you buy only Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, with an suitable level of acidity (pH) level of 5 to 7. The more the skin leans toward the acidic to harder it for the acne bacteria to grow. Also see lemon juice to treat acne.
Apple cider vinegar is an effective all-natural ingredient which cures acne breakouts by simply eliminating the bacteria along with balancing our skin’s pH level (which is a measure of acidity). It also soaks up excessive oil from our skin, which is a primary cause of acne breakouts.
I personally use and recommend Bragg’s apple cider vinegar. It’s organic, still contains the mother, and is easily found in most supermarkets.
How To Use Apple Cider Vinegar
Most people use a mix of half water half ACV, but some don’t dilute it down at all. Since ACV is an acid, many people’s skin does not react well to it at this concentration.
When you first start using this toner, it’s a good idea to start off with a half and half ratio, or 3/4 water and 1/4 ACV to see how your skin reacts. You can then make it stronger or weaker depending on how it feels. You can also add in a few drops of essential oils as desired to help mask some of the smell. Click here for the best essential oils
Put on the solution directly to your skin using clean cotton, and leave it there overnight, rinse off in the morning then start again.
Use this once in the morning and once in the evening before going to bed.

Cons of Using Apple Cider Vinegar
The only known cons of using apple cider vinegar is the smell and the slight stinging after application. It has a very strong, distinctive odor to it that some people do not like. Once the vinegar has been applied to the skin the either the smell lessons or your nose adjusts to it.
