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.

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.

This is a silly question, but you could possibly provide where and what kind of vinegar you purchased? I am a guy and i have not seen the supermarket in ages. I wouldnt know what to look for. I have a Stater Bros and Vons near me. If that helps any. Thanks, My bacne has been the biggest pain in the butt ever. I think you may be on to somethin with the vinegar. Also, where can i get the tea tree oil? And how do u apply the vinegar? Sorrry for the many questions. sad.gif

No SPF in it.  I don't like this one though.  If you want a good moisturizer with SA in it, then try Loreal Pure Zone.  I find this one to be much better than the C&C alternative.
