Vinegar Cured my Bacne

250 posts in this topic

Ok, I used 1 Tea Tree Oil (100%, undiluted) : 1 Apple Cider Videgar and ...somehow it doesn't feel right. My skin feels fresh, it has a nice smell but I am not sure I put the right quantity of TTO. Should I have put less?

Just tried the Japanese Vinegar like 10 minutes ago, burned at first, skin feels real smooth now. I'll try 2 update daily... i just pored it on a cotton ball and rubbed it on, didn't dilate...

I'll give this a week then im going 2 try the BP/Alpha Hydrox. treatment.

If any 1 has success at all with bacne pm me please.

[attachmentid=3874]hi! I am new to this. But I'm going to try the apple cider Ving. I have tried pricey creams, BP and everything under the sun. I think the only time I had clearn skin was in china! I don't know why...but it is the only place I lived that I had clear skin...

So...I am going to try it. ;)

How do you apply the vinegar? Like, do you soak it into a cotton pad or a tissue?

The only vinegar I found at the grocery store was diluted to 5% acidity. Should I buy indiluted vinegar? Would something like this be OK:

Thank you for your help!! I really hope this solves my scars.

bragg's is definitely a good brand because it's raw/unpasteurized.

you can get this cheaper though (and faster) at a whole foods market or any natural food store -- look for eden's, bragg's, or other brands that say "raw" or "with the mother" ("mother" i think is a term for the strain that actually produces the fermentation...you'll see this goopy, stringy brown stuff floating in the bottle -- don't worry, it's good for you :) it's actually really good to put a tablespoon or so of vinegar in water and sip it every day -- easy to get used to the taste after a while -- it alkalinizes your whole system and is really good for digestion)

8 passes full-face; 4 extra passes on temples and the more heavily scarred areas of my cheeks (outer cheeks toward hairline and jaw)

serious swelling afterwards that went down on day 4 after taking chinese herbs and drinking lots and lots of tea (as a diuretic). ice is not good at all for swelling after heat inflammation subsides! must sleep sitting up until swelling goes down, too.

Hey everyone,

I've never really been too happy about my body, i've always been overweight and had quite a lot of acne and body acne, especially on my back and upper chest.

A few of weeks ago i saw this thread and it inspired me to change, i started using vinegar on my back and upper chest and decided i was gonna start to go the the gym, sitting here after 3 weeks i feel a lot better about myself, the acne on my upper chest has totally gone and on my back there's hardly any of it now. My face has totally cleared up too and i've lost a lot of weight. I generally feel a lot better about myself, i'm even going swimming with some mates next week

thanks for all your advice and thanks for helping me change my life

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.

Hi guys

Just thought I'd answer some of the questions, I put it on with my fingers and just rub it on with a few drops of the Tea-Tree oil (which should be available at any good health food shop) and use it as an exfoliant (i.e. rub it in to take off the top layer of dead skin, especially good for getting rid of the hyperpigmentation associated with old spots). I used Japanese rice wine vinegar but I dont think it matters, any type of vinegar will do.

Not to disrepect anyone's opinions but the poster who thought that my bacne stopping and the use of vinegar was coincidental was not correct - I had bacne for about 15 years and whilst it was sometimes worse than other times it was always there in some form and when I first tried the vinegar it was especially nasty, until I started using the vinegar - as I said I only used it to try to get rid of the red marks and I was astounded when I stopped getting new spots.

It cost like $3 for a years treatment, you have nothing to lose and its changed my outlook on life (the beach is a different place when you dont have to worry about people looking at the dark red spotches on your back).

All the best folks.

M.

Can u please Post places to buy tea tree oil. I cannot find it anywhere. Online or some stores in the states would be great. Thanks Mikka!

Walmart has tea tree oil. It's in the Pharmacy section (the isle with all the vitamins) on the bottom shelf. If you have trouble finding it , just ask for assistance. It's about $4 and some change. Hope that helps.

Hmm.. I tried to reply to your 1 ACV: 1 TTO post Sebastian, but it'll only let me quote "does sunbathing cause a problem if you use vinegar on your skin?"

Yes, I think you've probably used way too much TTO. Essential oils are concentrated, and are supposed to be strong, so I think a few DROPS would do it, as opposed to tablespoons or whatever you used.

I read some recipes in an organic beauty book and none of them used nearly as much essential oils.

I dunno if ACV has done anything for my face, but it's actually worked really well on my back (which was getting progressively worse the last month). I tried BP, just made my skin hurt all the time, to the point I couldn't sleep on my back. And sea salt scrub alone wasn't doing it anymore.

This is what I do (**NOTE: I have skin like an elephant, so if you don't this will not be good for your skin...at all. I'm serious. Seriously.) First, in the shower, I scrub the hell out of my back with exfoliating gloves and Dove Sensitive Skin Body wash, then I apply a sea salt scrub, let it dry a few minutes and rinse it off. After I get out of the shower I apply at least 2 layers of Omega Nutrition's Organic ACV full strength on my back.

I dunno if it does anything for scarring (actually, probably the opposite), I'm probably gonna try that PanOxyl 10 stuff suggested on the other thread.

Only thing I don't like is I reek of vinegar...uck. Oh well, I could smell like garbage for all I care, just get rid of these damn spots.

And if you live in Canada, the Omega Nutrition brand ACV is sold in Shoppers Drug Mart. It's raw, unpasteurized, contains "mother." In any case, it works for me. It also tastes good with fish :razz:

Hi i was wondering where you got the kind of vinegar you used and if it got rid of any scars and redness you might've had. And one more thing, do you think it would make a difference to just use regular baking vinegar?

I've had fairly mild bacne and some large back cysts for around 20 years (Im 38 now) but the results are that my back is quite badly scarred and I have almost given up tryin to find anything that will actually work. I have 4 young kids and it breaks my heart that I have never been swimming with them.

Has anyone using the vinegar found any real improvent in the appearance of you back with both pimples and scarring? I dont get many spots now so its mainly the scarring that I need to deal with. Im looking through this thread and wondering if vinegar would help and if so, which types of vinegar give best results?

Thanks

Hello All, I've been keeping an eye on this thread lately, and decided to give it a try. I too, have been suffering from Bacne for over 20 years, I'm now 36. I get them all over my chest, back, and shoulders. I've tried a good number of over the counter remedies, and the thing that somewhat worked for me was 10% BP wash. However, it left my skin very dry and red at times, and never really got rid of all of the acne including the red pigmentation, but it helped. I am so glad I found this forum. I've been using Apple Cider vinegar mixed 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water twice a day for 3 days now, and I have already noticed a drastic improvement. My wife commented that my back is very clear now, and there is no redness. The red pigmentation from past acne has also almost completely vanished. I will continue using this treatment, and hope that it will keep improving my skin. I hope there is no such thing as building a tolerance to vinegar.

It makes sense to use a natural type remedy like this, since it seems alot of other health problems can be cured using natural remedies. The store bought remedies seem to give little improvement, which leads me to believe they were intentionally made that way to keep you buying them.

I will post more results here in a couple weeks.
