At night, I want to ask if I use apple vinegar toner, after I rinse with water, I use the medication in my acne, is it safe and what effect?

1 Answer:

Hello Wahyu,

Apple vinegar (apple cider vinegar) is one ingredient that is being trended as a facial treatment ingredient. You must know first what the effect of apple vinegar on the skin, before deciding to use it regularly.

Apple vinegar has an acidic pH, especially if you use it without dissolving. Acid in the skin can cause chemical trauma in the form of burns, which are characterized by redness and pain in the skin. If used with occlusion, the liquid is applied to the skin and then covered by special gauze / cover material, the burns that arise can be deeper resulting in a resounding wound.

Apple vinegar used as a toner should have been dissolved in the correct amount to be safe for use on the skin. Even so, there are still many people with sensitive skin who experience skin irritation when using it. Studies of apple cider vinegar for atopic dermatitis, show the use of apple cider vinegar on the skin causes significant water loss in the transepidermal layer at 0-15 minutes after use.

Apple vinegar contains acetic acid, succinic acid, citric acid, and lactic acid which have antibacterial and antifungal effects. These acids are proven to kill the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes. Because one of the factors causing acne is an increase in bacterial colonies in the pores of the skin, apple vinegar is thought to have benefits to help prevent and treat acne. However, until now there has been no medical research with sufficient data and evidence that states the effectiveness and safety of apple vinegar as a spotty treatment.

The acids contained in apple cider vinegar also have the ability to be a natural "chemical peeling" so that they can help disguise acne scars.

The use of apple cider vinegar should be diluted with water that can be 1: 3 or even thinner if your skin is sensitive. If it does not arise irritation, you can try more concentrated. If you have sensitive skin, you should try first as a small area of ​​the skin and see the reaction. It's a good idea for apple vinegar to be used only in problem areas. Clean your face well before using apple vinegar. Use clean cotton to apply to the face. Let stand 5-20 seconds (preferably after that washed, especially if your skin is easily irritated). Only then use the ointment to treat your acne.

Severe skin irritation until your skin is reddened, sore, itchy, peeling, new pimples appear in places where acne usually does not appear can indicate your skin is not compatible with the use of apple vinegar. It is best to stop using and consult further with a dermatologist. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
