calling ms. sweet jade1

while searching for gentle exfoliants i stumbled upon a reply of yours (which appears below) in a past thread. i found the information quite helpful but i was curious as to what the correct procedure is when using this formulation and is this gentle enough for black skin? my skin is oily/acne prone and a bit sensitive now a days so i'm verrrrrrry careful. ha ha.

in using this as an exfoliant i want to be sure that i am using this correctly. in addition, i would like to use this as a weekly mask but am not sure how this should be applied. thanks in advance

What's great about Vinegar is that it helps to exfoilate, shrink pores, and lighten (due exfoilation) and does so seemingly without irritation for me at least. This is my personal formula for this 50% Apple Cider Vinegar, 50% Distilled (purified) water, and 4 - 6 asprin tablets. Keep in fridge if you like and apply no more than 2x a day. For the aspirin, find a formula that uses the least amount of ingredients and you can even make a mask out of these tablets & aloe (or a cleanser), but again...be careful. Oh yeah and since Aspirin contains Salicylates you should find that it helps reduce inflammation and Vinegar also helps with acne reduction.

Re: calling ms. sweet jade1

Hey =)
Of course you can use the above treatment. The thing I hate worse than acne is the marks or hyperpigmentation it leaves behind. The vinegar solution is very gentle if you dilute as similar to the above. It will help to lighten, exfoliate, and treat some exisiting acne you may have.


I've never actually used the aspirin mask, that's a bit stronger than using some aspirin in the vinegar solution, but some women love it. As for the vinegar/water/aspirin solution you can apply this at night or when you don't have to go out as apple cider vinegar does have a slight scent (I can tolerate it). You can try this every other day, or daily whatever your skin is used to.


Try it and lemme know what you think.
