Apple cider vinegar is one of the most valuable treatments you can have in your box of natural acne scarring goodies. It's a very effective way of toning the skin, helping to even out any discoloration as well as helping to reduce further outbreaks of acne. Apple cider vinegar is the vinegar that is recommended - not only is it more mild then some of the other vinegars - but it also smells reasonably okay!
By far the easiest way to use apple cider vinegar is to use it as a facial wash. Put the plug in a sink and fill it up with a cup or two of the vinegar and splash your face well with it. Try to keep it away from your eyes, and be careful since it might sting if you have any current acne that's exposed.
You can also apply it by first putting some on a face cloth or cotton ball and rubbing the skin in a circular fashion. This is perhaps more helpful for those that want to avoid wastage. If you would really like to get specific with it, you can use the vinegar as a spot treatment, although it does help all the skin, regardless of whether that bit of skin is scarred or not.
By using it as a face wash on a daily, or every other day basis you will help to smooth the skin and reduce the size of your pores. The act of doing this will also help the skin to balance its ph, which again leads to smoother skin and better looking scars.
The key to using apple cider vinegar as an acne scar treatment is that consistency is the most important part of the regime. It is the simple act of continually performing the treatment that will yield the best results - regardless of the product or natural remedy that you're using at any particular time. You will probably also like to perform a few other treatments as well so that you get the maximum results for your scarring. Thankfully there are heaps and heaps of alternate treatments that you can try to treat your acne scars with.
Many people have seen great results with apple cider vinegar, and so I really recommend that you try it. It's not very expensive, and you should be able to purchase it in bulk. Remember - consistency, and trying other treatments. It's a sure-fire way to success with your acne scar treatments.
