Vinegar Cured my Bacne

250 posts in this topic

Hey guys

I dont pop into this forum much anymore - since I cleared up my acne I really haven't had the need - but I thought I'd pass on my experience to hopefully help some of you guys out there still struggling with acne.

Quick history on my acne before I pass on my personal bacne cure - I had pretty serious acne for 17 years (I'm 31) and had it on my face and back - the acne on my back was cystic and quite nasty whilst my face was generally less cystic.

My face has cleared up with the regimen (I use a lot less BP now than prescribed but it seems to keep my acne at bay, amazing considering I had used BP since day one but not knowing the appropriate way to apply it meant years of nasty facial acne).

My back resisted all attempts to rid it of acne - I tried accutane (was too harsh and I ended up sunburnt all the time back in Australia where I grew up so I gave up) and I tried a number of expensive topicals that did virtually nothing, I'd kind of given up hope an resigned myself to a life of bacne when I read about using vinegar on your face to get rid of hyperpigmentation so I thought I'd give it a go to get rid of the red marks on my back that had formed as a result of the cysts and would stay for weeks if not months before being joined by new fresh red marks.

So off to the supermarket I went and the only vinegar I could find was Japanese rice wine vinegar so I bought it home and tried it (I found it worked best by using it with a bit of Tea-Tree oil), well the results were amazing, within two weeks my back was clear of spots and the marks had faded significantly within three weeks. I have to say I was stunned. The truly strange thing is that its been almost a year since I first started using it (at the time nightly) my back is completely clear and now I no longer need to use it as regularly, I probably apply it once a week if that and my back stays acne free. I still have the original 375ml bottle from last year which shows how little I need to use these days.

If you've made it this far through this long post I'd like to say please give it a try (the smell can take a bit of getting used to but believe me its worth it) and thanks for listening and I wish you all the best in your fight with acne.

Good luck, hope it works for you like it worked for me.

Did you put it on and then take a shower? Or just put it on at night, then take a shower in the morning. It seems like you would be able to smell the vinegar on you.

Indeed! I've been using apple cider vinegar and it works better than those expensive over the counter topicals. I wish everyone here will try it coz it does work!

HI guys

Good to hear someone has backed me up - its not just the cheapest way to get rid of it but for me its the only way I've found to get rid of my bacne - nothing else worked.

I personally use it undiluted - bear in mind I have very oily olive skin but I still only use it on my face rarely, only if I get a spot and think I can turbocharge getting rid of the red mark thats left. My back can take any sort of treatment so I used undiluted vinegar mixed with a bit of tea-tree oil ( I found this gave the best exfoliation effects but now that the marks are all gone I have discontinued the tea-tree oil and only use the vinegar once a week or so) you can also add the taping method (just use sellotape to remove the top layer of dead skin cells if you want to ramp up the red mark removal) bear in mind thatas with all these treatments take it one step at a time and layer them to suit your skin type - if it gets too red or sensitive then dial it back, i.e dilute the vinegar and discontinue taping etc.

Now I put it on before a shower or a bath and wash it off and I still have no bacne - occasionally I'll leave it on when I go to bed but it doesn't seem to make much difference to the results - I haven't had bacne now for a year whereas I used to get at least 6 or 7 large cystic spots on my back at any one time.

Give it a go guys, I cant recommend it enough, getting rid of my bacne and the red marks associated with it with something so easy and cheap as vinegar was an amazing surprise and was such a relief given the amount of time and money I had spent on other treatments.

All the best.

I doubt the vinegar was the reason why it cleared up.

Your body probably turned the corner and the vineger just helped clear things up.

Check this out!

ZENO Acne Clearing Device. It is a bit expensive for the initial purchase, but replacement cartridges are only $35 and you get 90 individual treatments out of one cartridge.

There is only one acne product safe for use during pregnancy and has been FDA approved... MyZENO Acne Device. This has just been introduced and featured on TheView September 5, 2005 for treatment of acne. This Acne Device is safe for CHILDREN 5 years and up too!

This device is fabulous. I had the opportunity to use it at a demonstration a couple weeks back and the acne treated starts to heal in 2 (TWO) Days and by the third day -- the acne lesion is gone!

It works on the premise of heat. The unit heats the acne lesion to exactly 119 degrees Fahrenheit for 2.5 minutes - this kills the acne bacteria causing the inflammation and healing begins at the time the treatment is finished. We are expecting this to be HUGE for pregnancy and teenagers and menopausal women suffering from hormonal acne.

Tried it, result is very good after just a week, using apple cider vinegar, apply very liberally( splash it on) before bedtime, smell soon goes. Greasy skin feels dry but not dry as when using BP. Please try it.
