ill wash my face and keep it wet, then apply the ACV and let it dry.
it smells bad, so i put it on at night, then put BP on after it dries, then take a shower in the morning and the smell goes away.

I wash my face with cetaphil at night then tone with asda simple toner then use ACV with cotton pad not diluted and leave it on all night the smell goes away after 20 mins of applying it. I wake up in the morning and wash face with cetaphil then apply makeup and my face has never looked so healthy and glowing all down to ACV as this is the only thing I have done in the last 3 days differently and it def works! I am also drinking it xxx

I use it three times a day and keep it on. It has really done wonders for my acne, and my redmarks are vanishing.

I generally just put it on at night and weash it off when I shower in the morning. I use about half ACV half water....but does anyone know why you need to dilute it or if you even have to? Is it just very drying if its not diluted or what?

I remember my buddy NdnRomeo saying that your face has a ph level and that ACV is a heavy acid which actually kind of eats away at your skin. Mixing it with water which is a base balances it out so it matches the ph of your face.

Personally, I rarely use water when I apply it, and havent noticed anything but results and a bit more dryness than I was used to. Sometimes I'll wash my face and not dry the water off when I apply ACV so its partially diluted. Since I noticed results, I stopped using it as often, only on the weekends.

I worked my way up from 1:2 acv to water to pure acv, it used to dry my skin terribly, but now it doesn't dry it too much. I use to do it morning and night, but I have lowered it to just mornings, although I may change to night so there are no trace smells during the day

I have to stop using ACV. The smell is unbareable for me! Plus it wasnt helping. I think I am gonna stick with sea salt and water
