I posted this somewhere else too but figured I should add this to my pre-accutane updates. The bumps on my face have been bugging me SO much!
So I read that vinegar can be helpful with folliculitis and other noninflamed acne and I also saw a lot of posts about baking soda and apple cider vinegar on your face.
Decided to give it a go. After 2 days I'm seeing the bumps go WAY down and some that weren't budging for what felt like ages have finally come to a head.
I simply added some baking soda to my regular facewash (effaclar) and after washing my face wiped all over a solution of 7 parts water to 1 part apple cider vinegar. I left that on for 15 minutes then rinsed my face with a bottle of water (figured might as well try it). This is supposed to balance your ph level because baking soda is a basic and vinegar is acidic (and I just did the bottled water because I did! haha). Anyway, the vinegar also kills bacteria and fungus so hopefully if there was any folliculitis on my face this would help. I put my regular aczone cream on at night and when I woke up after doing this morning and night for two days I was SO HAPPY! Today I can touch my face and feel some smoothness! I can't believe this has helped. seems so simple and I was always such a skeptic! It also seems so bizarre to me that I am seeing results after two days. I could simply have been LOOKING for the results but this is so uplifting! I will keep updating as I follow this routine up until I start accutane.
