Acne breaks out your face and can be very embarrassing sometimes. The blemishes caused by acne can stay on your face for a couple of months and even years. If you have ever had acne, then you must be familiar with how annoying the situation is. The condition subjects you to live with scars on your face for a long time. You could have applied various treatment methods and resources such as medicated creams, drugstore cleansers and dangerous prescription pills all in vain.
I have a very close friend who suffered the effects caused by acne since her puberty through high school and even college. She had tried all the methodologies and applications she had heard, or read of, but there was not even a single one that helped her to remedy her skin. She lived a stressful life. She had also started developing low self-esteem. Luckily, her mother read about the use of apple cider that produces vinegar to cure acne. The mom revealed the hint to her, and since she had suffered enough, she decided to try anything that could free her from acne. She tried it and it, indeed, worked. I decided to find out how apple cider vinegar works, and the following are hints to help you achieve your goal of treating acne.
How apple cider vinegar cured my acne in 1 week:
1. Buy your apple cider vinegar
When you go out to purchase an apple cider vinegar, ensure that it is unfiltered, organic, unpasteurized and it contains the ‘mother.’ The Mother is the brown strand that floats in the vinegar and is beneficial for your health.
2. Put a small portion of apple cider vinegar into a glass container
The amount of apple cider vinegar that you should use depends on the size of toner you need to prepare. However, I recommend that you start by making smaller portions of about a teaspoon. You should then increase the amount with time as you get used to it.
3. Use distilled or filtered water to dilute the apple cider vinegar for acne
Your skin sensitivity will determine the amount of water you should use to dilute the substance. Consider diluting it in the ratio of one portion of the content to about two or three equal parts of water. If your skin is sensitive, then you should add some more water to have a more diluted material. Depending on your skin type, you may have to make a couple of toners before you get the one that fits your skin the best.
4. Pour a little of the fully prepared substance onto a clean cotton pad for application
Treatment starts by cleansing your face. Ensure that you do not apply anything else on your face before your toner is dry. After it dries, you are free to use your preferred lotion or cream. Repeat this procedure twice a day until you achieve your goal. You may also consider using your toner every time you wash your face.
The toner may not work for everyone, but it has shown positive results for many people who had used almost all other approaches to cure acne without getting anything positive. As it is with every treatment method, this natural and organic substance requires care and responsiveness for it to deliver the expected impact.
Based on the information on WebMD, the alcohol contained in apple cider is turned into vinegar by bacteria and yeast during fermentation. Vinegar helps in fighting bacteria that causes acne. According to Healthline, apple cider vinegar has citric, succinic, lactic and acetic acid. These acids have been proven to have the ability to kill P. acnes that are scientifically known as Propionibacterium acnes. This bacteria is the primary cause of acne in humans.
Additionally, the acids defend your body against acne scars through reduction of inflammation while smoothing out the pigmentation and texture of your skin. In many cases, acne leaves deep dark or red tones on your skin after healing. It may affect part of your face or the entirety of it. Apple cider vinegar for acne cures any acne since it attacks the primary cause of the illness. The substance has a strong smell that may not be pleasant for you, so prepare yourself for it in advance.
