It is like a reason that picks you up

And places you

Where you always wanted

To be.

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 AM 100% CLEAR ON FACE AND 97% CLEAR ON BODY

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?

Morning

- Queen Helene Oatmeal scrub

- Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

Night

- Alba Sea Organics Cleanser

- Differin .01% Gel

- Ortho Tri-cyclen

I've been with this plan for years, keeps me mostly clear!

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

Anyone who has a problem zit thats having a hard time healing, try this and let me know if it helped you. Mix one tablespoon of sea salt with three tablespoons of warm water, apply to a cotton ball or a paper towel. Apply to the zit for ten to fifteen minutes, and then wash it off.
