Please post this question on the site for readers to respond to* Hi! I'm in my mid-20's and I've had pretty clear skin for about 5 years after things were pretty bad as a teenager. Recently, however, my face has really broken out in places that I've never had pimples before, such as my forehead and my cheeks. I came across the Apple Cider Vinegar remedy on this site and decided to give it a try. For the past five days, I've been drinking 2 tsps 2 or 3 times per day and applying it directly to my face before I go to bed (after gently washing with mild soap and water).

Things seem to be getting worse, though. My pimples don't look much better and I seem to be getting more and more every morning. Did this happen to anyone else? Should I continue with the treatment and hope that things get better? Is this a case of things will get worse temporarily so things will be better in the long run? Any advice or encouragement would be greatly appreciated!

Apple Cider Vinegar cured the acne beneath the skin and made pores appear smaller, also added a glow to skin. WONDERFUL! I used ACV as a toner to my face twice daily for beneath the skin acne and enlarged facial pores and I saw a fantastic difference in 3 days. There are only a few visible pores left, only seen when I stand close enough to the mirror to see my breathe. I also have a glow to my skin that is unbelievable. I've always loved my skin but didn't always treat it with love an care--but now seeing it glowing and healthy I am intent to add ACV to my diet for internal cleansing too. Thank you God for ACV!

I have insane acne problems since 15 now am 23. Recently started drinking organic ACV with organic honey in hot water 3x a day, it works. People should try this, and forget all the crap those infomercials on TV tell you they just want your money.

Today was the first day I tried vinegar on my face. (used plain white) And already I can see and feel a difference. I plan to keep using it a couple times a day and I really hope it clears up my acne. I want to thank everyone who posted that it works.

I have been using a the following mixture for 1 week and I see a big difference in my acne.

1cup ACV
1cup honey
8 cloves of garlic

Blend all the above ingredients together and put it in a glass container. Tightly
seal it and put it in the fridge for 5 days. Then apply it every night.

I was so fascinated with what I read on this site about Apple Cider Vinegar that I decided to start taking some. I use a recipe I found here: dilute 1 tbs 5% ACV in a cup of hot strong green tea with 1 tbs of honey and drink this once in the morning when I get up and again just before bed. None of the ingredients are labeled organic; they are straight out of supermarket shelves, but something is happening after just two days! My normally drab, pimply oily skin is glowing for the first time since I was a kid and it looks much clearer. My once every two-three day (if lucky) toilet visits have turned into twice daily offerings :o) and I have a lot more bounce in my step. I am going to replace the tea, vinegar and honey with organic versions for enhanced benefits and will start using it on my pimples too, if they ever come back!

Ever since I was a teenager I've been dealing with acne. Sometimes bad, sometimes worse. When I turned 32 my acne (most of the times under control) went very bad. I tried several things, among them, zinc, flaxseed oil and vitamin A, and even though it improved I didn't notice a big change until I started drinking and applying topically ACV. I drink it 3X a day and also noticed that I haven't got any colds, or canker sores, which were very common to me. The skin on my face has improved a lot. I'm so glad I found out about it.

Apple cider vinegar has helped cure my acne. I have had pimples under the skin on my chin for several years. I tried everything and they would not go away. I started using acv in the morning and at night. My pimples have dried up and the redness is clearing up.

I have had acne for years, I started using apple cider vinegar on my face a few months ago, and have seen major improvements. I don't have nearly as many blemishes and the ones that do pop up every now and then are small.

My daughter developed a case of moderate acne, and after trying a number of different things for over a year which helped very little or not at all, she started drinking 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar three times a day and applying it topically once at night. She has been acne free for two months. It took about three weeks to clear up.

Applying ACV topically to'my face several times a day (4 or more times) has cured me of a very bad complexion. I apply it straight and while it burns my skin a bit, it still works like a miracle!

ACV applied in small dosages directly to acne, dries it up and makes it go away. I started taking about 2 tablespoons every other day and that has also helped my acne.

Apple Cider Vinegar has already helped my family so much in the last three days since we've started to use it regular. I first found out about it's benefits when I read a little book from the grocery store check-out line. I started to put it on my face for my acne and instantly things started to dry up. I gave it to my daughter when she started to get a cold, and it has stopped the cold symptoms and cough! And now, I have a little sore throat and it is helping me greatly! I can feel the acv working as soon as I take a sip of my tea.
