Okay, frick. I am so sick of this.

I have a prominent zit on my upper lip. I also have a few other less noticeable ones on the side of my mouth. I put apple cider vinegar on them; yes, theyre going down!

Then I applied some baking soda paste to them for about two minutes each.

THEN BAM! Little white bumps, everywhere.


I only have at home remedies available; lemon juice, baking soda, toothpaste and apple cider vinegar, along with my Clean and Clear Deep Action Cleanser. I am going to have a panic attack if these dont go away. PLEASE HELP.

Baking soda is alkaline. Please read the following post on pH and why your skin prefers acidic products. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/pH-import...-p-t144725.html The product you wish to use is alkaline and will damage your acid mantle and increase the risk of breaking out and irritation.

Sometimes ACV can cause a bunch of little pimples; they'll go away. It sometimes seems to make pre-existing spots come to a head.

For particularly troublesome spots, see last link in my signature.
