Question Apple Cider Vinegar and Other All Natural Cleansers...

I was reading an article talking about how there are good, inexpensive facial cleansers you can use from home. It talked about apple cider vinegar and lemons.

Has anyone tried this?

Is apple cider vinegar a good cleanser?

I use witch hazel, it's an all natural atringent/cleanser. It works pretty good.

In theory the stuff I use to wash my face (johnsons ph 5.5) should keep the ph of my skin just right, so no need to use anything else. BTW I have tested the ph of it with indicator paper and it is no lie.

Skin is acidic, (around 5.5) this helps fight infections and such like
Soap - alkaline, - dries face, stops skin resisting infections.
Apple cider vinegar could help resore the natural ph, I've heard its good anyway.

i hope i do not confuse anyone by suggesting this--has anyone read the book eating for beauty. it is only organic fruits and veggie, also things such as raw nuts, pure honey and things of that sort--they also do not eat meat, which i can say i eat fish--my doctor says he thinks i should get more protein and also he says animal protein is different than protein you get from veggies. so that means i do not eat 100% raw. the reason i brought this up is you guys mentioned the ph and things of that sort. This book is really into balance of the body such as alkahline and acidic balance. one things that it does say is if you are going to stop sugar (not the ones found in fruit, since they are natural) you must do the same for red meat because if you do not the balance goes yo-yo. when you read the book it was somewhat hard for me to understand because i do this to be healthy and i do believe things that are not natural do harm us in some way. witch hazel is something that they suggest for acne and as far as the vinegar they do not use soap so they say the vinegar is a great way to clean the body. i also use 100% natural products on my face and for me it has made a difference. like i say i believe this is healthy and i do not do this for religous purpose and don't get me wrong if I have a headache I will take a aspirin--so in alot of ways I am not 100% raw but i do alot of it. also i cannot spell very well-thanks---if anyone has read this give me your feed back
