I am a 50-something woman who has reached menopause having stopped menstruating 2.5 years ago. My skin has become blotchy with what can best be described as large light brown freckles. They are very obvious on my calves, once lovely, and a few on my face coupled with the melasma, or darkening from nose to chin around my mouth. I also had crusty, painful hairs on my upper lip (I liken them to matchsticks) that would get ingrown, scabby, flaky, etc.
I started drinking ACV about 2 months ago. I keep a little shot glass on my bathroom vanity and try to get 3-4 Tablespoons a day. I fill it about half full, add water, drink a little, add more water until it's gone......better than sipping, I believe, as your tooth enamel is not being exposed to it for an extended amount of time.
I have noticed in this time that the hairs have become much softer and fewer. The darkening has decreased significantly and with regular exfoliating the brown spots on my face are lightening. I have been told that my face is brighter. I have not noticed a big change in my legs, but have seen enough to keep going with this daily regimen. I will update as I see more progress!
