You probably used to much acv compared to your water ratio. If you feel extensive burning, itching, and extreme tightness with peeling on the skin, you possibly might have burned your skin. If that is the case, don't touch your face with any products, and let it shed off naturally. Do not try and peel the burned skin, as that will create extreme discoloration. The shedding process should take a maximum of 5 days, if not touched. If necessary, rinse your face with lukewarm water, and moisturize with Vaseline, or cetaphil. Best of luck

I would stop using coconut oil on your face as it is fairly comedogenic - meaning it clogs your pores - so you are most likely correct in saying that is has caused some of your breakouts. I would look into other oils for your face if you wish to go this route - there are so many natural bloggers that can give you more advice and specific oils/routines. (Personally, I would start by doing random searches on Pinterest, ie. 'facial oils' 'natural acne cure' and then finding blogs that way). If you are going to use ACV as a topical toner, you NEED to dilute it with water. So half ACV and half distilled water twice daily on your face as a toner if you wish to use this product. I would also recommend seeing an esthetician in conjunction to seeing a dermatologist. While insurance covers a dermatologist and not an esthetician, they may be able to help you with more natural cures and home remedies as opposed to a dermatologist who just writes prescription after prescription (been there , done that, I know how frustrating that is!). My last piece of advice is to try not to let your skin hold you back! I am 23 and have been struggling with acne for about 10 years now. While I have never cystic acne like some, I do know how insecure your skin can make you. So while you are trying all these different things to clear your skin, try to make peace with what you have and love yourself BECAUSE of your imperfections! Good luck :)

How long did you use it for? The same thing happened to my forehead (where I don't normally breakout) for the first two weeks and then after that my forehead was the clearest and smoothest it's ever been. Did you give it at least 3 weeks? ACV is a natural AHA and thus could cause your skin to purge a bit.
