WFMW: Acne Solution
It's hard to just accept that season of your life when your hormones are out of whack and your growing like a toddler (both mentally and physically!). I happened upon a little trick from some crazy website (I wish I could remember to give them credit, but it really was years ago!). I think it may be a common thing. Maybe?
It's Apple Cider Vinegar.
Yeah. Instead of the hundreds of dollars spent on medicines and doctor visits....you spend, I don't know, $5 for half a year's supply! Now, the site, as I remember, recommended drinking a shot of the ACV (that's what the apple cider vinegar veterans call it). I haven't gone that far.
Here's what we do: we make a toner out of ACV, witch hazel, and water. Use it twice (or more) times a day. My girls just soak a cotton ball and swipe their whole faces. It's a bit stinky at first and don't get it in your eyes (ouch!). Seriously, in a couple of days their skin will be clear.
Here's the "recipe:"
1 part ACV
1 part witch hazel
3 parts filtered water
* The key is to use ORGANIC Apple Cider Vinegar. It's got to have those stringy, goobery things it in. You just shake it up before you use it. I know, sounds gross...but, really...it works!
I hope this works for some of you. Find out what works for everyone else at Rocks in My Dryer. Don't forget to say a prayer for Kristen and the other bloggers in Kenya with Compassion International! What a life changing trip for them!
