My Testimony on ACV

I recently made a life changing discovery few weeks ago on YT. And this is the amazing powers of Apple Cider Vinegar. While looking up natural facial cleansers online, I stumbled on a YT video on using ACV for acne. Since I don't have a problem with facial acne, I didn't pay much attention to what was said. But days later, it dawned on me that I could try using some ACV on my back to clear the little acne I had going on back there.

I often get acne/ tiny bumps on my chest and back on days when I wear a piece of clothing which doesn't cover my chest and back on a hot sunny summer day. Fortunately, these spots usually heals itself naturally within a few days. But, it's been months since last summer and I still have these bumps on my back. With summer just around the corner, I thought I better do something really quickly to get rid of these unwanted visitors. So after looking up some possible treatments for back acne (which by the way is a common issue, just not commonly talked about), I decided to give ACV a chance after turning up with nothing that is accessible and affordable.

Any brand works, as I use the Heinz brand
So I grabbed my bottle of Heinz ACV, poured a little on a facial cotton puff, applied it on the acne on my back, did this religiously in the morning and night for a week. And Lo and Behold, these bumps were miraculously flattened! Who knew a salad dressing could cure months of skin ailment just like that?

So if you suffer from acne on any part of your body, please consider giving ACV a shot and you won't be disappointed! May be you will some day shout on mountain tops and proclaim the healing power in this potion!

CAUTION: You might feel a tingling/burning sensation upon application. Since the skin on the back is thicker than that on the face, I only felt a slight tingling sensation, mostly when I had just scratched my back before applying it. But it might burn when applied on the face, so use with caution.
