My experience with Apple cider vinegar _home remedies


This ingredient that I once knew very little about is very powerful in so many ways both used externally and internally. A lot of people have used it for weight loss, detoxing their bodies, in skin care as a toner, to fade dark marks and in my experience, I tried it for my seborrheic dermatitis (a skin condition that is not very popular but a lot of people suffer from). 

I used the Nature's Choice brand because I heard from a youtuber that it will work just as well as the Bragg's apple cider vinegar. As long as it is organic and unfiltered it should work perfectly for whatever your problem is. I would mix it with water so that it doesn't irritate my skin. I didn't really focus on the measurements as long as it didn't burn my face then it was perfect. Basically, I did this to try and get rid of the flare-ups I had from seborrheic dermatitis and to control it from spreading. It did a pretty good job at getting rid of seborrheic dermatitis in certain areas of my face and it would leave a light patch on my face which I was not okay about. It faded my acne scars to a certain extent but it never made my acne go away. I also have fungal acne (also known as pityrosporum folliculitis, or malassezia folliculitis) and later on as I continued to use the ACV, it only made it worse.

I must admit for the first two weeks of using this product it really helped my skin in so many ways. My acne was drying up, no new seborrheic dermatitis flare-ups and the fungal acne was under control ( it was only present on my forehead and not on my cheeks) but later it only made my acne and fungal acne worse. The seborrheic dermatitis is the only thing that benefited from the ACV.

Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse:

I also tried ACV on my hair as I found out it balances the ph balance of your hair and scalp. It worked wonders with the bentonite clay because it made the mixture more smooth rather than using water. My hair felt bouncy and had more elasticity after my ACV rinse but after several uses, it caused a major problem. I started having seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp. I was really confused because I knew most people use ACV to control the flare-ups on their scalp but it only caused mine to start which was depressing. I only suffered from this skin condition on my face and never on my scalp. I stopped using it later on and it got better. It didn't completely stop until I started using a shampoo that contains 2% ketoconazole and I also had to stop using oil for my hair which was even more depressing but somehow this was the best decision I've made for my dry scalp and that's a story for another day.

I no longer use apple cider vinegar on my hair and face instead for my face I now use witch hazel and rosewater as a toner and I'm still battling with acne. I don't pay much attention to my seborrheic dermatitis. I've just made peace with it as it has no cure.
