Introduction And Background
Acne is not at all a skin condition that one can take easily. If someone has acne, they get really upset about it which is justified because letâ€™s be honest, who likes having scars and pimples on their face? I know I donâ€™t. There are many treatments available for acne and everyone can choose from the one they like best. They have dermal creams, herbal treatments, natural home remedies etc. In this article, we will be discussing how vinegar can be used to treat acne.
What Can Vinegar Do?
We all know that vinegar is acidic in nature. Its low pH is just what we need. It can regulate the pH of our own skin and has the power to detoxify. It is also used as a toner. Vinegar is often used in home remedies to make the skin clearer, fresher and to improve skin color.
Type Of Vinegar
This is naturally important. When the word vinegar comes up, we automatically think that it can be any type of vinegar. Wrong. It specifically has to be Apple Cider. This is the type of vinegar that is good for the skin. Other types can potentially harm and are not really used in home remedies or for acne treatment. It is basically Apple Cider which hold all the contents and the elements of treating acne.
How To Make And Use Vinegar Acne Treatments?
Here are a few ways in which you can use vinegar to treat the acne. Be careful, Iâ€™m talking about Apple Cider here specifically in each case. It is essential to remember that before performing each process, you must ensure that your skin is clean. Wash it thoroughly with a face wash or soap and then dry it with a towel.
- Mix water with the same amount of Apple Cider and then add a little of witch Hazel to it. Mix thoroughly. Splash the mixture onto the areas where you have acne but only leave it on for a few seconds or a minute. Be quick to wash it off with warm water and them dry your skin again. A hint to apply here is that you first use warm water to wash it off but then use cold water. This will help in first opening the pores of the skin so that cleansing can be done but then cold water will close the pores so that they do not become clogged or oily or have bacteria inserted in them.
- Mix water with Apple cider but this time we are just using these two items. Put the mixture in a spray bottle and spray it onto the face where you have acne. Just the same, remove it quickly afterwards.
- This is a treatment in which you will have to drink the mixture you make. It is termed as Apple Cider cocktail. Youâ€™ll have to mix 2 tablespoons of Apple cider vinegar, a little lemon juice and about a glass of water. You can even add a little honey if you want but that is optional. After mixing all these ingredients, have yourself a nice drink. It might be difficult to drink altogether so have little sips throughout the day. It will definitely give you a better complexion and a clearer skin.
These methods will all erase the acne in a matter of weeks. All you have to do is be a little patient and not take any stress. This is also important. Taking stress is likely to inhibit the acne treatment process because the hormones produced during stress can very well aggravate the acne. So be careful.
The Social Dangers Of Acne
One should not ignore acne at all. In fact, it can be very dangerous to the social health if not the body health. We all know that acne does not prove any harm to the body besides being bad to look at on the outside. But what it can do sociallyâ€¦ Many children often get depression due to this skin condition and it can cause a lot of worry and low self-esteem as well as low self-confidence. Parents have to be serious in guiding their children to the right path of acne and to ensure that their acne problems get resolved quickly because otherwise they would have to face emotional trauma. Likewise, those who have friends with acne should be supportive and help them find the right treatment process.
Vinegar acne treatment has its perks. It is not expensive at all and on the bright side, it actually works. Many have tried it and have claimed to have better skin in a matter of weeks and the signs of acne were quickly disappearing too. Do not hesitate to try this treatment out.
