ACV for Acne Scarring (dark spots): I am a 45 year-old brown-skinned African-American woman who has had acne since my teens. It got better when I stopped drinking cows milk in my late teens and of course my skin is better depending on my diet. More fresh fruits, veggies, clean water and I it's noticeable.

Even when I don't pick at pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, etc. , I still sometimes get dark marks (hyperpigmentation) after it goes away. Frustrating and not attractive.

I read somewhere that ACV is good for fading the dark marks so I tried it.

What I noticed is that the ACV works well and kind of like a peel. After several days of applying the ACV, the dark spots just peel off.

I use a 50/50 mixture of organic ACV (with the mother) and distilled or reverse osmosis water. I store it covered in a small glass bowl and leave it in the fridge or sometimes the bathroom (if it's not to warm in there).
