Apple Cider Vinegar For Indented Scars And Red Marks?

04 March 2013 - 12:26 AM

Here is my plan. I have lots of red bright marks on my cheeks and I can't take it any longer. They look horrible. I also have several indents by my temples on both sides and there is redness in them. I have been reading up on apple cider vinegar over the last few hours. I just have a couple questions:

 

I half asian skin prone to scarring/marks. I have lots of oil on my t-zone and nose, forehead is FULL of clogged pores too. I can almost see it coming out of my blackheads on my nose.

 

Will the ACV help get rid of nose blackheads? And how will it do this if so. Will they just eventually fall out on their own or do I need to scrub a bit once I start seeing them come out?

 

Does ACV help indented scars? Some posts I read said it did.

 

I am going to dilute it 50/50 with water. I already bought Braggs ACV. Do I need to refrigerate it? I was going to mix a bowl and store it. Refrigerate or not?

 

I am going to apply it after I cleanse. I am currently not using any products at all except Cetaphil cleanser and sunscreen moisturizer. I was on retin A but stopped after seeing no improvement for several months. So I am ready to try this new thing that seems like it can help.

 

After I apply it with a cotton pad, I will let it dry. Can I put my sunscreen on afterwards? And does the apple cider vinegar cause any sun sensitivity at all?

 

Please help I would greatly appreciate responses. I am hopeful for this and just really want to clarify my questions before I start. I am praying this will improve my redness and be an answer for me. I'm having a hard time emotionally cause of my appearance currently. God bless
