I read about an eggplant and apple cider vinegar cure and decided to try it on my face and hands as I am getting older and started to develop age spots. I mix organic apple cider vinegar with a chopped eggplant and use it three times a day on hands and face. My skin tone has evened out and age spots faded.

Reply to Sherry of Sebring, FL:
The need for refrigeration depends on how long you are going to keep it before using it. You will have to experiment to smell if it goes foul after a few days or weeks or never.
I don't see any reason why you shouldn t be able to put it on your face. I wouldn't put it on an open wound or sore. Just try a little and see how it goes.

I mixed up some apple cider vinegar and onion as in the instructions. Does the mixture need to be refrigerated? Can it be used on the face? Thank you.

Are the vinegar, onion & lemon juices all to be mixed & used together? If so, what ratios or amounts? How long does a premade batch stay fresh in fridge? Thx

Hi Eva, may I answer your question? Use neat ACV or juice unless your skin is broken or damaged. Test a little bit if you are in doubt. It will work much better if it is full strength.

My question is to Marilyn. Did you use the ACV, lemon and onion juice neat or diluted on your skin?

I had some age spots on the backs of my hands that slowly appeared over several years. At first I wasn't too worried because I thought they were just freckles, but they continued to grow to nearly 1 cm in size, and made my hands look old. I have applied apple cider vinegar, ACV mixed with onion juice, and lemon juice to the spots. They lightened within a couple of weeks, and after two months had just about disappeared completely. I think the ACV and the lemon juice pretty much have the same effect, a natural acid on the skin. I also drink them in water every day. My skin is so much better. The onion juice feels good, I know it also helps. But it stinks, so you can really only use it at night before going to bed.
