How often should I be changing the batch I used is there a time limit of how long this stuff can last before you need to make some new stuff?

I just bought some ACV...

just make sure you get the unpasturized kind... or RAW.

Otherwise all the beneficial enzymes will be dead.

Bragg's is a good brand that is RAW.

ONLY 4 DAYS into using ACV and ive already seen great results. i wasnt expecting results so quickly, but im absolutely amazed. (its probably due to the fact that i also apply it 5 times a day lol). i dont think it will take much longer to completely eliminate the red marks on my face. everyone should definitely try this for sure!!

Shake the bottle if sediment occurs.

Yeah that's what the bottle says, but is it still good as a toner though?

could someone please answer these questions as i don't have time to look through the whole thread.

the ACV i want to use it ASPALI organic cyder vinegar and has 5% acidity, is this okay?

i read about people burning themselves, is that thorugh using it 100% pure, instead of 50% also is there any chance that you could scar yourselve through using this.

and how many times a day should i use it.

Thanks.

I have some questions on ACV before using it:

I stopped using accutane 3 weeks ago, all my acne is gone but I'm left over with scars: red marks.

I don't have that much of red marks but if I could reduce it even more, why not?

So my question is: is there any way ACV could get me back into acne activity since I stopped my accutane treatment 3 weeks ago?

ALL ON FIRST PAGE

+ Can be pruchased at any local grocery store, and is in the salad dressing isle.
+ Yes you can still use BP and any other acne related medications or remedies ex. Tea Tree Oil.
+ Yes you can also use Emu Oil. I suggest using it at night bc it is oily and use it of course after ACV/BP or w/e else you use.
+ If you want to drink it add 2 - 4 Tablespoons of ACV in a large glass of Apple Juice or Apple Cider. Use a straw because the more acid that touches your teeth the higher your risk is of ruining your enamel. IDK too much about it so your best bet is to look it up yourself so that you don't ruin your teeth, I have read that swishing with Baking Soda afterwards will reduce acidity in the mouth.
+ Any BRAND of ACV is fine and yes they all say 5% Acidity.
+ Using tap water is fine, using cold water is probobly better, more soothing and less irritating.
1. 50/50 ACV + Water in an old Astringent bottle, Shot glass or Spray bottle.

2. *Optional* Can add a few aspirin in the Toner or make a toner with asprin in it separately. The asprin is essentially nothing but Salicylic Acid which is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (exfoliates skin), SA also dries up acne and can penetrate deeper into the pores unblocking clogged pores, which I find helps more with removing blackheads IF you don't like to manually exfoliate. Instead of plain water you could use Green Tea (the kind you make with water and a tea packet, not Snapple lol) because Green Teat is packed with antioxidants to fight the aging process and it would def. give your skin an extra boost because of the caffeine content.

3. Use a cotton pad, cotton ball, or spray bottle to apply ACV Toner.

4. I still occasionally break out usually hormones so I currently use Tea Tree Oil, Benzoyl Peroxide. Yes TTO is better then BP to me because it doesn't dry your skin out as much or interfere with the healing process, but I am pregnant and I cannot use TTO anymore.

This was my process with TTO ~ I applied TTO diluted with water, usually between 10 - 15 drops in a shot glass filled less then half way with water. I wait until my face is completely dry, then apply ACV wait until it is dry, Moisturize and I am done.
(for BP users)
After shower (or anytime day or night) apply the ACV Toner and wait until it is completely dried on your face, apply BP and wait 15min. Next moisturize!

5. Sometimes I use ACV full strength it all depends on how my skin is feeling .. somedays it can handle it. There is nothing wrong with using full strength.. you just have to know your own skin. If you have sensitive skin I suggest sticking with the 50/50 solution, and if it is tougher than applying the ACV without water every now and then is okay too.

PS

if you do not use 50/50 water/ACV at first then yes you will burn, become red, possibly scab and leave scars. This is an acid and if you read what I have stated above then there is no reason for burning to occur.

ALTHOUGH

If you know you have sensitive skin I suggest using more water and less ACV at first so you do not burn.

Imagine the worst red marks on your cheeks, with no active acne, would ACV work? Because I can't see any red marks on your first page pictures Rebecca! Your skin looks great

OK, its been about a week since Ive started using ACV and I've only used it once a day. Twice a day for 2 days maybe. I can say, i havent broken out any and i think the oil has reduced. wow. I still get oily but not like before. If i dont use it at all, i get oily but i think ive seen a reduction in the amount. Im on minocycline so that with the acv is helping to clear up. I hope the oil greatly reduces itself. Summers around the corner so we'll see. So far Im still a ACV fan. I think its working tone down the oil.

Thanx guys!

I'm confused, you say any brand, yet it seems theres a raw and natural kinds compared to some other ones. I have Western Family acv 5%. I use it undiluted and it doesnt sting at all or leave red marks. It just waters my eyes up pretty good. Is BRAGG the best one because it has the "mother" or whatever it is.

I have been using this on some marks on my chest for 2 weeks and I haven't seen any improvement. In fact I actually think ACV might have caused a few red bumps on my chest as well.

Note I use my fingers to apply it, does this matter? I wash my hands thoroughly with soap before doing it.
