Acne & Dermatology : Does Apple Cider Vinegar Clear Inflamed Acne Lesions?

It’s possible you’ve heard from a family member, or even by hearsay, that Apple Cider Vinegar is a great way of treating acne.  This is no old wives tale.  Apple cider vinegar is chemically related to glycolic acid, a powerful natural chemical which is often used in skin remedies and to treat acne.  Glycolic acid is easily able to penetrate the skin and reacts with the upper layer of the epidermis, weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold the dead skin cells together. This in turn allows the stratum corneum to be exfoliated, exposing live skin cells.  As you can imagine, this is great for many skin affections and has been found to improve other skin conditions, including Actinic keratosis, hyperkeratosis and serborrheic keratosis.

Try a little Apple Cider Vinegar on a small patch of your skin for about ten minutes and then wash off.  If you find no adverse reactions and in fact find it helps your acne, consider using the apple cider vinegar on a daily basis, leaving it for ten minutes before washing off in warm water.  This will not only help reduce your acne, but may help tame any future flare-ups.
