Using Apple Cider Vinegar to get rid of pimples

Acne, Natural products, pintrest recipes, Skin care

For some reason that I cannot figure out I broke out horribly on the left side of my face!!  I usually have very clear skin, so acne is not something I have a lot of products to deal with…Two giant pimples! I’m not even exaggerating, these things are big, bright red and very very noticeable! My regular stuff didn’t even work on it, so I decided to try Apple Cider Vinegar because it was all over Pinterest…

Day one, I used Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner…it burns!! When I say it burns, I don’t mean a little, tears actually came to my eyes. Must be working right? No pain no gain! I used it twice a day. I followed that with my usual skin care regime and avoided mirrors for the rest of the day..The burning only lasts a few seconds though, so power through..in the morning they were smaller.

Day two, I read that you are in fact supposed to wash it off after 30 min. Whoops!  So I used it as a toner, waited 30 min. and washed it off. I did this twice a day. Yes, it still burns, but I also don’t want to walk around like this, so I power through..

Day three, I pop the 2 disgusting whiteheads on my face and use the Apple Cider Vinegar again, leave it on 30 min. rinse it off. My skin is a little dry, but not too bad. I use very moisturizing serum and day cream. I use it again at night, 30 min on, rinse off, regular night-time regime…

Day four, Hooray!! My skin is clear!! I mean clear! I have slightly pinkish marks if you really really look, but no pimples, no blackheads, clear skin!! I may continue to use this for maintenance!! It’s cheap too!

Do you have any great acne remedies? Share!!

Get sexier with Apple Cider Vinegar

Natural products, Skin care

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, you’ve heard all the buzz about apple cider vinegar. There are so many ways to use acv!! Apple cider vinegar can relieve constipation, fight acne, soothe a sore throat, help sunburn, remove warts, disinfect, neutralize odors and help speed up weight loss!  No one feels sexy when they are constipated, have warts or acne, or smell bad. Here are my favorite recipes that I can personally  vouch for…

Apple cider vinegar can help you lose weight because it has acetic acid. It detoxes your liver, reduces heartburn and helps your body combat candida. Here are two of the best recipes I have found.

Dr. Oz’s Swimsuit slimdown drink-

1 cup of grapefruit juice

2 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp honey

Drink before each meal.

I have personally been using this for a week and I have lost 4 lbs.

 

Morning detox tea-

1 cup warm water

2tbsp apple cider vinegar

2tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp raw honey

1 tsp cinnamon

dash of cayenne

I use this when I really want to jump start my weight loss, it doesn’t taste as good as the first, I find cayenne pepper is not to my liking, but it will speed up your metabolism.

-Apple cider vinegar can help get rid of bad breath-

1/2 tbsp in 1 cup of water

gargle and spit. It actually works and lasts longer than just mouthwash does.I tried it when I was sick with a sore throat and my mouth felt dry and I just knew my breath was less than stellar.

-Get rid of acne-

Just use as a toner and that’s it!!

-If you have a lot of product buildup on your hair, or you just want extra shine-

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 cup of water

rinse after shampooing and condition as usual.

-After a really sweaty workout, you can use acv on a cotton pad and swipe it on your armpits. wait 5 to 10 minutes and then shower as usual.

I will keep trying new recipes and natural remedies.  I’d love to hear what you have tried!! Let me know what you think.
