After doing the Caveman Regimen I was mostly clear, but after the first month, thousands of colorless clogged pores appeared on my forehead, giving my skin a sandpaper-like texture. A few of those were slightly raised and pinkish.
I couldn't wash my face or hair with soap or apply any kind of acne treatment or hair product without aggravating the bumps, turning them into full-blown pimples/cysts. Doing so, would just make new spots appear on my face anyway.
After waiting one month to see if they would clear up (which they didn't), I was fed up and started searching for a Caveman friendly treatment. I was scared to try ACV, but the reviews on here convinced me. Braggs doesn't exist in stores in Denmark, but I managed to find an organic, non-filtered, non-pasteurized alternative in a health store.
I just dilute the ACV 1:1 with boiled and cooled tap water and apply it on my forehead with a cotton pad. Since I still try to avoid washing my face with water, I just leave the ACV on my skin at night and apply another layer the next evening. It seems to work, even on my sensitive skin.
The pink bumps on my forehead quickly disappeared or turned into whiteheads. It took about one week for the colorless bumps to reduce their size, but now, two and a half weeks later, they have almost disappeared completely.
As a bonus, it hasn't affected the progress I've had with reducing the oiliness of my skin. So happy I finally decided to give ACV a try!
I started getting acne when I was 17 years old. It started out mild and nothing that a consistent use of Proactiv couldn't fix. As years went on however it got worse and worse. I started developing bad cystic acne around age 20. My entire face was covered in cysts and pimples. I tried every over the counter wash/treatment out there including a few oral medications such as minocycline and doxycycline. The oral medications helped but once I got off them my acne came right back. One month ago I bought a bottle of Braggs acv and started drinking 1 tbsp mixed with water twice per day. I am now 22 and this has worked amazingly for me. I did "purge" for the first 5 days roughly in which my acne got worse but stick with it for at least 10 days before you try stopping. Now my skin is mostly clear with only acne marks and scars left to heal and the occasion pimple around the time of the month but I've noticed they heal much quicker than they used to. I've been drinking the same routine for about 1 month now and my skin still looks 10 times better. Drinking acv also has tons of other health benefits so I would highly suggest this for someone suffering with acne.
For those of you hopeless individuals who have tried ACV (organic) with no luck i seriously suggest you try again. I had horrible acne growing up and yes it did start clearing up once i hit my twenties (I am now 26) but it did not completely stop. I still had breakouts pretty often especially before my period. I started applying Braggs as a toner right after washing/drying my face. Dont get me wrong, i had to use an ENTIRE bottle before i started seeing results. I am now on my 4th bottle, id say its been more than a year now and i have NO ACNE whatsoever! I literally cant remember the last time i broke out. I do get one occasional, sometimes unnoticeable, pimple once every few months and even thats a rarity. I have never experienced skin i dont have to cover up and i cant remember the last time i wondered if ill be breaking out before an event months in advance. My skin has become the least of my problems. Along with this toner I have also incorporated Vitamin C serum into my regimen (after ACV) and my skin is glowing. One thing i will point out however, is that putting this on some existing acne actually keeps it from coming to a head which in my opinion makes it linger on your face a lot longer. Other than that minor issue i cant find anything wrong with this miracle product. I hope this works for others as well as it has worked for me.
I like apple cider vinegar. A cyst was forming on my forehead where it's pretty clear just some few little small bumps and I put it on and surprisingly it didn't get as bad as It used to. And in 2 days it dried up and disappeared from my forehead. It didn't get as big as it used to. It works well with cystic acne that's either forming or that's there. Also I've used this before but stopped. now I broke out a lot and will try this again hope it will work. The reason it has 4 stars is because it stings your eyes a lot when applying but oh well hehe.
I use this every night as a toner after I wash my face. I do dilute it, half ACV and the rest water. The only bad thing is that it smells like stinky feet, and it makes your eyes water. Other than that, it doesn't dry out my face and it makes my skin smooth. I also found that it works well on existing acne, as well as make redness go down. I didn't find that it helped dark spots much.
I've been suffering from moderate acne since around the age of 15 . I'm turning 23 in a month and the battle still goes on.. although it's not as bad as back in my teen years. Like many people on this site, I've tried pretty much everything.
I've read lots of reviews and articles about Organic ACV and I watched a Youtube video that motivated me to try it out. Honestly, this has done wonders for my face. I cleanse with Cetaphil and then use Bragg's Organic ACV as a toner (half ACV, half water in a sanitized glass bottle) in the morning and at night before bed. I did notice a difference within the first week and over the next couple of months it kept getting better. I haven't really had anymore breakouts since I started using it... I do still get the occasional tiny whitehead and I still have some tiny black heads in the chin area, scarring along the jawline, and quite a bit of those stupid tiny skin coloured bumps on my forehead but they seem to be less noticeable now. So I wouldn't say it's cured my acne completely... but this product has worked the best out of all the other ones I've tried throughout these last 8 years. And it's consistent... It doesn't just stop working after a while and I didn't go through a purging stage.
I figure if you haven't tried this yet and nothing else is working... then give it a shot! Just make sure it's the organic kind with the "mother". I tried the regular Heinz ACV about a year ago and it did nothing. (I didn't do enough research back then) I found the Bragg's brand for about $6 at Superstore in their Organic section. Oh, and.. I did try drinking this product like others have but I gave up with that after about a month. Honestly I didn't notice a difference from drinking it. Using it as a toner seems to be all I need.
Final note: I think one other natural product I'd like to try as a toner eventually is Witch Hazel. I may end up using it instead of ACV just to see if it works better or not. I will post a review about that experience later on!
I have tried many products, from oral medication to a wide range of store bought topical products, to the Acne.org regimen and I still had breakouts on and off. At the age of 26, I am tired of still having mild to moderate acne. I purchased Bragg's ACV and used it both as a drink and a diluted toner. I tried mixing a tablespoon in a big glass of water and couldn't stand the taste of sipping on it for a while, so I now just quickly drink a tablespoon straight followed by a glass of water. I do this twice daily. I also use the diluted ACV toner (3 T water, 1 T ACV), twice daily. I apply the toner, let it dry, then apply acne.org moisturizer with a drop of jojoba oil, and then my makeup. At the end of the day, I wash off my makeup and apply the toner again. I am now 3 weeks into this new routine and I have noticed a big difference in my skin. I have has significantly less breakouts and a more even skin tone. I would strongly recommend this ACV routine!
I was really hoping this would work for me. the reviews seemed great and even fam recommended it. So about 3 weeks ago i started drinking 2-3 capfuls of this stuff diluted in water everyday. About a week after i started drinking i began using it topically on my entire face overnight. I noticed tht i was still getting new acne after taking this but my skin did look glowy n healthier. But the acne continued, it did not improve. I had so much faith in this stuff...and i used the good one too-braggs organic. Kinda sad, man :l i wouldnt NOT recommend this though becuz some ppl have seen fabulous results with ACV. Just not me :l
