Full Strength ACV

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, is there anything wrong with using ACV full strength, not mixed with water? I'm not really sure what people mean when they say that it depends on whether your skin can "handle it". I have sensitive skin, and I use full strength ACV every night. Is this possibly going to break me out? Logically it should just cause red marks to fade faster.

My second question is using it, and then after it dries applying topical treatments, such as Stievamycin, which I'm on. Is this alright, or will the ACV react with the Stievamycin gel somehow? Cheers!

Hey Surf Dude,

The ACV might hurt too much because the skin is too raw from breakouts. It might need to be diluted for some people so they can handle it when applied to the skin. That's what "handle it" means.

Personally, I use full strength ACV for prevention and an occasional zit. Back when I had lots of breakouts, ACV really helped dry it all up.

I don't know if ACV would react with your other topical med, though.

full ACV burns like hell. but helps. I tried using it a week ago, ouch. So i went back down to 50:50 and have been working up from there, but have been seeing great stuff happening. Just go up slowly!

Look it what full ACV did to my hand.... :X I had a tiny little wart (ish I know) that I wanted to get rid of.. and I heard ACV was great for that, so I soaked some in a cotton ball and taped it to my hand.... next morning, I look and a bunch of my skin was burned off. Imagine using full strength on your face! I say dilute it lol
