How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar for Acne

Skin is naturally acidic.

However, that natural acidity is disrupted when using harsh cleansers and soaps.

The natural acidity in our skin is needed to protect our skin from germs, bacteria, and pollution.

Apple cider vinegar is excellent for curing acne because it returns the acidity to our skin. It also kills bacteria, removes excess dirt, oil, and makeup and dissolves dead skin cells.

If you suffer from acne and want to make the apple cider vinegar toner that cured mine, here is how!

1. Purchase your apple cider vinegar.

We recommend purchasing Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar because it is organic, unfiltered, unpasteurized and has the “mother” in it.

The “mother” is the brownish stuff that you will find floating in your vinegar (it will likely be settled to the bottom). The “mother” contains the natural enzymes that are beneficial to your health.

2. Add a small amount of the apple cider vinegar into a container.

The amount of apple cider vinegar that you use will depend on how much toner you want to make but I recommend starting with about a tablespoon.

Apple cider vinegar is acidic, so start with small amounts to see how your skin reacts. Don’t over do it.

3. Dilute the apple cider vinegar with water.

The amount of water that you use will depend on your skin sensitivity. Try a starting with 3 parts water to 1 part ACV to start (and if your skin is really sensitive, add more water). If your skin reacts well, reduce your ration to 2:1.

You may have to play around with the ratio of your toner a bit, but once you find what works best for your skin, it will be worth it!

4. Pour a little onto a cotton ball and apply it to your skin after cleansing.

Wait until the toner has dried and then use whatever other lotion or moisturizer your like. Do this twice a day or any time you wash your face.
