Till the time we reach a certain age, we always take our body and skin for granted. We don’t feel the need to take care of it until that unfortunate day comes when our skin starts showing signs of fatigue, stress and aging. Admit it, you’re guilty too!
This is, of course, the natural course of life: a person ages and so does his or her skin. It all starts when you hit adolescence and suddenly the universe decides to throw a bunch of acne-causing germs at your face. And when you don’t care and decide to go all barbaric and squeeze the life out of them - it’s all but a downhill ride from there. Those suckers just don’t leave.
Like many of you out there, I decided it was time I started taking care of my skin and ran to the nearest solution provider I could find - the internet. The good people on the world wide web gave me a LOT of probable solutions that could wipe those stubborn acne and breakout marks from my face. “Apply lemon juice and honey. Dab toothpaste on a zit! (Don’t do that). Potatoes and tomatoes too.” None worked. At least for me, they didn’t.
Luckily, I stumbled upon an article which talked about Apple Cider Vinegar.To be honest, I didn’t even know such a thing existed before I read that article. I must have clicked on it only to find out what it was. To my surprise, I found a long list of health and skin benefits associated with ACV. I looked up some more articles and found testimonials from people - all of them strongly suggesting it to get clearer skin and better health.
So the next day, I found myself in the store buying a bottle of ACV. I bought the American Garden Apple Cider Vinegar and started using it on my face. You only have to put one or two drops of it in water and apply it on your face with a cotton ball. Note: the smell is a little overwhelming. It smells like raw cheap alcohol. But hey! It works.
I started incorporating it in my diet as well. Mixing a few drops in my veggies and meat. After a few weeks, I noticed a considerable reduction in the acne marks and I had far fewer or no breakouts at all. So this is why I suggest ACV as a natural solution for acne, acne scars and overall good health. It also works towards a better digestive system. Just don’t overuse it, too much of everything is bad after all.
