I get asked a lot about using lemon or apple cider vinegar for the face, and if it’s safe? Many of you are intrigued to try lemon juice or apple cider vinegar in DIY recipes to treat pimples, blackheads, melasma, sun spots, acne scars, or sun damage – but does it work, will it damage your skin, and is it worth trying?

Let’s just say, I wouldn’t intentionally put lemon juice or apple cider vinegar on my face. And, if you follow my blog, you know I love doing all sorts of skin care and beauty experiments.

  1. Thanks Sheri for sharing your experience with the raw milk kefir. It makes a lot of sense because you’re doing the fermentation at home with live cultures, which in my opinion are a million times more effective than any bottled probiotic supplement (which you never really know how effective those are!). Plus, raw milk can be a lot easier to digest than pasteurized milk products. When my daughter Luna was a baby (and even now as a toddler), she always loves drinking the clear liquid that collects at the top of plain yogurt (I believe it’s yogurt whey). Most people discard that stuff, but she always liked it more than the actual yogurt! I believe it’s because there’s so many nutrients in it and it’s full of live probiotic cultures, it makes her feel good. She’s not the only child I’ve met that loves that stuff!
    And lucky you not having to clean up the vomit anymore. I sure know what that’s like 🙂

  2. Yes, have to be very careful with baking soda, many people can’t tolerate it. For some reason I find it helps added to a bath for treating rashes and itchy skin, but then again, the ph of the skin might be off, and the baking soda brings the ph back down.
