OMG!!!!! U GUYS MUST TRY THIS!!

Recommended Posts

I have been doing the egg mask, and it really tightens my pores which feels good. But I think it was the Aveeno Clear Complextion foaming cleanser that was making my skin dry and flaky. So I switched to Cetaphil and its not irratated anymore or dry. The moisteriser is awesome!

But about the egg mask..its good stuff, thanks for the suggestion.

Personally I am scared to use the ACV..because I have read posts that i burnt peoples skin, and they had skin similar to me..so no thanks..I have been using the Baking soda on my back though, its helped dramticly..but I am very scared to use it on my face...:(

I'm not doubting your judegement on the ACV but I think the reason it burnt people's faces was because they didn't dilute it enough.. Maybe they started too high like 1:3. Just a suggestion. I'm going to try it on my back tonight if it works like you said. Thanks! :surprised:

I have a question...

if this regime is to neutralise your appropriate PH balance, why not just use a skin care product like johnson and johnson PH 5.5? wouldnt that work the same?

Im not saying i doubt the regime, its just (as im sure you all know), after trying so many apparent 'miracle' regimes with absolutely no success, im starting to lose all hope!

5.5 is a "neutral" pH, but not the "neutral" you want for your face. your face is actually naturally acidic, w/ a pH higher than 5.5. So, the ACV is a perfect follow up to the baking soda theoretically. pH "balanced" = zits

a suggestion...

bakin soda + vinegar (10 minutes)...in the morning after you have cleansed your face.

vinegar (10 minutes) and then egg white mask with a twist of lemon (15-20 minutes)...at night after you have cleansed your face.

so basically the only difference i've made is to apply vinegar twice a day. :D

works like a charm

this formula has worked for me, but a drying affect will occur (especially during the cold season), so moisturizer will be needed.

Hello, everybody.

I read most of the posts here and some didnt use any acne cream in their regimens.

But, Delna and some others insisted that we should use acne cream (such as neutrogena on spot 2.5%).

I would like to know how to determine whether I should use an acne cream or not?

May I know most of you use acne cream or not in your daily regimen?

Hope to hear you all, please, any suggestion or recommendation is welcome.

I used to use dans BP but it made my skin so dry and irritated. Now i only use ACV and i wash it off in morning but leave it on at night. I also use a moisturizer in the morning with SPF. i want to try the baking soda mask but im afraid because my skin is really sensitive. so im going to wait till i have a few days of not really doing anything that way if its bad i can stop and let me skin calm back down.

You should use a acne cream maybe if you have really bad acne. For me, my skin is just red and irritated looking. might depend on the person but you could try it a few different ways and see what works for you.

hope that helps

All_business, thanks you very much for your reply. Thanks a lot! For your information, I didnt have a bad acne,

I have 2 or 3 pimples on my face at a time but have many shallow red scars. That's why I dont know should I use

acne cream or not. I worried acne cream will cause break out.

Some says that I must use acne cream for this regimen but i read that some skip this step.

All_Business, do you mean that if I didnt have bad acne, I dont need to use acne cream? Please give your opinions,

please.

Thank you

Delna, I am going to try this! In fact, I'm going to bike to the supermarket today and buy what you recommended. I'm really hoping this works, but if not, it's not like it would be the first thing that didn't. Still, it sounds so promising!

I'll be sure to give an update!

I've been using this method for 3 days. It improves my skin, but not much. My redspots are getting lighter. I'm not sure if its the Baking Soda and Vinegar that cause some of my recent pimple. I mean before using this method, i have two active pimple, but after starting this regime, i got another one. The thing is its getting smaller really quickly. I notice after putting on Baking soda and vinegar cuz my pores to be seen so easily. Feel like just a quick stroke w/ blackhead's remover i can take out every thing in the pores lolz. I'm not sure if i'll continue w/ baking soda, cuz it irritates my skin so bad .. may i'll use less.

Sorry if this questions has already been asked, but i couldnt be bothered to look through every post for this topic. :confused: Can this regime be used in the long term? I mean if you follow these steps for a long time, will there be any bad side effects to your skin? Im guessing no1 has already used this regime long enough to know for sure, but if anyone might have an answer, plz let me know...thanx

First off, Delna your the best. Well anyways can you list all the stuff I need for this process? Like what to add (lemon juice you said) and stuff like that, how much do I add, etc. Thanks so much I want my red marks to be gone by the time I go on spring break. Once again, thank you.

how long should i wait before trying this? I just stopped retin-a micro. thanks!

also, do you apply the bp on your entire face or just the prone areas?

oh, and one more thing. i work out pretty much every day...what do you recommend i do after a work out? Would washing again with soap be too much? The thing is that I put styling crap in my hair and I sweat a lot.

handsbella- I was using the ACV method this way wash let dry, apply ACV, let dry, rinse, then add moisturizer. Well my skin I don’t think liked this. Even though it made my skin lighter an \d less irritated it made me get pimples on either side of my nose where I had never gotten them before. Im not sure if that ever happened to anyone else? So then I started to apply some BP because the stuff dries my skin out really fast and I knew would make the pimples go away which it did. So now what I’m doing is

· Wash with purpose gentle cleansing, let dry

· Apply ACV let dry, then wash off

· Then apply a small amount of PB

· And then moisturize with some green cream

Seams to be working alright. I have to say that I think I have more rosacea then true acne because its really only on one side of my face and my nose. I did some searching online and people with rosacea have high alkaline skin and should try to have skin around 5.5 because that’s natural for human skin. Then web site said that you can get litmus paper to test your skins PH level. Also it gave a really good recipe to make a toner. Which I will list below. Hope that helps answer your question.

And for the guy that works out if you break out a good sweat that will actually help protect your skin and open your pores up. I would just wash with cold water or cool off your body and then go home and do what ever you normally do before you go to bed. And make sure that while you are working out you, DRINK WATER!

Toner

1 cup distilled water

1 heaping tablespoon dried green tea leaves

1 heaping tablespoon dried chamomile flowers

1 tablespoon rose hydrosol

1 tablespoon aloe vera gel

3 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

3 teaspoon lemon juice (optional addition for oily skin)

Heat distilled water until boiling. Remove from heat and add green tea and chamomile. Steep for 15 minutes and strain out plant material. Add rose hydrosol, aloe vera and vinegar (and lemon juice, if using) and stir well. Pour into a clean bottle and label. Shake well to ensure the mix. Store in refrigerator for best results and use within 3 weeks.

Apply the toner with a soft cotton pad, but do not rub the skin. Rather, saturate the pad and pat the toner over the face and neck area. Do not pat skin dry. If you sense the aroma of the cider vinegar, don't worry. It disappears quickly. Apple cider vinegar is the best natural ingredient to ensure optimal pH balance for the skin. Avoid eye area when using this toner. You skin is now ready for moisturizing.

This basically add together everything that you guys talk about and combines them slightly different.

the place where I received this never says anything about washing this off after? or applying any acne cream I might try it the way they suggest. Because I really think that acne creams are to harsh for my skin.

Im going to give it a try to night. First I need to see if I can find all the stuff .........rose hydrosol?

Ok. i just went to the supermarket and brought some products. however, im not sure if what i brought is correct. I couldnt find any apple cider vinegar, so i got just 'cider vinegar'. is this ok? also, they said there is no such thing called 'baking soda' only 'bicarbonate of soda', so i got that. is this ok as well? please someone let me no cuz i dont want to start this regime unless i know im using the right products...

thanks

-well there you go I just learned something new.

ok well im going to through a little update in here.

I was wondering with the people that are using ACV are you using any acne cream after. And if not did you break out for a little while before the ACV really started to work. The reason I ask is because before I start BP I really didn’t have any zits but my face was red then I started using BP and my face got redder but still not zits. Then I used just ACV and got these crater looking things on either side of my nose. So for the past few days I have been using the ACV then the BP and I always moisturize after any of those. Well today it feels like I just stepped out of a tanning booth and I look about the same. The BP just has to go but im working if my face will get used to the ACV or if I should increase the ratio. Right now im using 1:5 (ACV: water) I was going to make it 1:3 and through in some lemon. Well any ones thoughts would be great.

I read throuh 20 pages or so but i still dont understand some problems.

When applying baking soda with water must there be a ratio??? 1:5??

I've read that you have wet hands and then apply BP to that and then rub onto face?

Is this right? Can putting too much BP is bad?

The egg whitemask Well i have 1 table spoon of egg white then how much lemon do i mix it with? Im scared of putting too much lemon as my skin is sensitive. Just one hard squeeze?

Im kinda confused at the moment anyone care to go into detail? I'd really appreciate it!!!

Hey Yonder1, Ive been trying this process for about a week so far. I have seen only minimal results, but I still am hoping. I mix some baking soda (not alot at all) with water so that I make a paste with them. I dont think it matters how much you use, as long as it it a paste (not too dry, not too wet) You dont want the paste to have too much water, rather more baking soda.

For the egg mask, I just take all of the egg white from the egg, then do about 2-3 squeezes of the lemon, not really hard squeezes but NOT TOO MUCH, probabaly about 5-8 drops of the lemon juice. It all depends, but I still havnt seen much results. For the vinegar I started off with a 1:8 vinegar-water ratio. Now I am probabaly going to swtich to a 1:4 which might help my skin. This is what I have been t rying so far, but Im still hoping for the best! The bad thing about this process is that it takes while, and you have to be very patient.

1.Has anyone with red marks for a year + have success with this? Is this a temporary or a permanent fix?

2. Is it ok if I cleanse with Cetraphil soap bar?

3. For baking soda paste, around how much baking soda do I use? (if u could tell me in table spoon or cups or some measurement it be an awesome help!) how much water for the paste (how many drops??)

4. After the baking soda paste done how long u massage it for?

5. It says use 1:8 apple cider vinegar and then work to 1:1... so like first week do 1:8, second 1:7, etc.??

6. How much apple cider vinegar and water do you use (tablespoon measurment would help me)

7. On evening step it says cleanse face using baking soda and acv, so how much baking soda do I pour and how much ACV do I put in it? And I just use baking soda not baking soda paste? Someone plz explain that step for me.

8. What is ACV- I mean what product

9. Do you all do the egg-white + lemon mask everyday???

10. I got only a few pimples, would it be ok for me to go from the apple cider vinegar to moisturiser?

I really want to try this and not screw up! THANK YOU FOR HELP!
