Shrink Large Pores

I have been drinking ACV (a couple TBS diluted in water) a few times a day for about 10 days. I am hoping to alkalize my body and lose weight. I haven't seen any weight loss yet but I have noticed that my complexion is clearer and the enlarged pores on my nose are getting smaller. In fact, today I noticed that the little bits of solidified oil that previously sat inside the pores were all sticking out of my skin. My nose looked a little like a porcupine. So I kind of scraped the tiny oily "sticks" off. It was like my pores had just expelled their contents on their own. After I cleaned all that stuff away, I could see that my pores were noticeably smaller than they had been in decades (I am 42). It was not something I was trying to do or an effect that I was looking for, so you know it had to be pretty real and dramatic for me to notice this anyway.

I would not bother to put ACV on my face. It's acidic until you metabolize it and then it has positive effects. Not sure I want to put acid on my face. But the alkalizing effects of having it course throughout your system once you digest it definitely affect and improve your skin.

I used apple cider vinegar and have had the similar result of larger pores. I think this is the result of the pores being cleaned out, and the vinegar has dried and toughened the small area at the edge of the pore. I've read some articles from doctors etc... That suggest exfoliating. There is a good clay that you can get at mountainroseherbs -- Rhassoul clay. It is especially exfoliating.... I am going to massage with lavender oil prior to the clay pack.

I tried the ACV, and it worked pretty well. I washed with an all natural soap at night then applied the acv, then in the morning I would wash my face again then moisturize. It didn't completely shrink them yet but they are a ton smaller than before!!!

The apple cider vinegar (acv) drink is about 1-2 Tbsp ACV, 1 Tbs of raw (unheated/unfiltered) honey (or agave nectar) and about 8 oz. of Water. Drink that 3 times a day.

For your skin - I do about 4 Tbsp. ACV to about 2-4 ounces of Water. (dilution depends on personal sensitivity) I put it in a jar. You can add a little lavender/vitamin E oil and aloe vera gel as well. Just shake before each use and apply with a cotton ball.

Voila! Beautiful skin!

Hi, I found this site and am amazed by what I am reading. My mother always told a story of how in the thirties, my uncle was a little boy and desperately ill. The doctors could not figure out what was wrong or how to help him and finally told my grandparents to prepare for the worst. Apparently all he kept asking for was vinegar (my mom never specified if it was ACV) and when things looked really bleak, they decided to let him have it since he never stopped asking for it and since there was no real reason to deny him, however bizarre it seemed to give it to him. He apparently struggled to drink it, but got through a whole bottle in a few hours despite his weakness. The fever suddenly broke and he fully recovered, and to this day no one in my family really understood how. Now I'm getting a clue as to why! So, I thought I would try the honey/water/AVC drink three times a day- today is day 5 and while I didn't see any real weight loss until today, today my jeans are suddenly loose! Also been using it as a toner and guess what! No trip to the dermo like I planned because my pores are getting smaller on their own! Depression doing a lot better too - though the jury is still out on that since today I was a bit down after a few up days - will check back in and let everyone know- but WOW! I'm amazed! My little uncle was really on to something, clearly!
