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.

I started drinking acv two times a day, morning and before bed. My routine goes like this: 2 little paper cups, one with a little hydrogen peroxide and the other a little acv. I take a cotton ball and soak it with the peroxide and I then use it all over my face (like astringent), careful to avoid my eyebrows. Then I wet a q-tip with the acv and dab any pimples. It is very effective with whiteheads. I hate to throw out the acv so I drink what's left. Drink in small amounts, one big swig will leave you feeling like your gonna get sick. I know from experience. When I started this routine I broke out a lot, I think this was because it was getting all the icky bacteria and toxins out of my body. It took a couple weeks but I had faith and kept up the routine. I also take two tbs. of blackstrap molasses morning and night. I am able to go from a laying down position to sitting up on my own. I am disabled and pretty much bedridden. Is this a miracle? I think so. I have more energy and don't sleep during the day which left me feeling more tired and unable to sleep at night. I take the molasses before the acv.

WARNING: DO NOT spray apple cider vinegar straight to your face before making sure you're not allergic to it. After I read all the great reviews about the benefits of ACV on acne treatment, I went to the grocery store, bought some ACV, put it in a spray bottle and applied over my face and neck. My skin started burning and I thought it was just working the way it's supposed to, until I noticed bright red spots that looked like skin rash all over my face and I washed it off right the way. I've never had any allergy problems so I never test anything before using, but this was a scary experience. I'll try hydrogen peroxide for acne treatment next time, no more ACV for me.

Sorry to hear this happened to you. did you try it again without the sprayer? Perhaps you could have been allergic to the plastic in the sprayer as they have many many toxic chemicals. Just a thought!

I've actually been using combination of baking soda and Apple Cider Vinegar to clean my face and my results have been very successful. Here is what I do daily:

Morning: I use a deep cleansing face wash. Lather and let sit for 1 min, then rinse with ACV.

Night: I add baking soda to the deep cleanser (excellent make-up remover!), lather and let sit for 1 min. Then rinse with ACV. I get a quick foaming reaction that gives a deeper pore cleansing!

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

1cup ACV
1cup honey

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.

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.

I went to this web site and decided to try apple cider vinegar for my acne. I started drinking 2 tablespoons 3 times a day and applying it topically at night, and sometimes I would put vitamin E on my face in the morning after I rinsed it off. Well I wasn't really getting any results until about 2 months into this regimen. I almost wanted to give up but I kept on it and I now have a great complexion. I actually now only take the ACV internally maybe once a week but I still apply the ACV to my face daily. I had, had acne since I was 13 and I am now 21. ( 8 years!) I would usually have about 15-20 pimples on my face at one time and right now at this moment I have only one!! Which will soon go away. I've noticed that the ACV also heals the pimples quicker and it is also helping with my many years of dark scars. The ACV has made a world of difference on my face. Oh, I also stopped using all of those special acne face washes which were not helping anyway. I only use a mild hand soap on my face in the evening then put the ACV on with a cotton ball, then in the morning I simply rinse my face with warm water. I don't use any soap which also has been working way better than those acne soaps. I also have been visualizing my face being smooth and clear which is also a help because our thoughts have a lot to do with what is manifesting in our life.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
