Meet Melissa!

Hey guys! Today, I have my friend Melissa talking to you about apple cider vinegar and the awesomeness of it!
You probably recognize her from our TPP link up, or maybe you follow her blog too?!
But what you don't know is that we go way back!
Melissa and I have been online friends for YEARS now! (Sarah too). We actually all met in a cafemom group and have just kind of been friends ever since. Yay us!
One of these days we'll all meet up somewhere and it'll be the coolest thing like ever!
Anyway, say hi to Melissa! Head over to her blog and give her a follow or just a nice comment. Continue reading to learn something new!

Hey everyone, I'm Melissa and I blog over at Lulu & Sweet Pea.
I'm 28 years young & I'm married to a phenomenal tattooer named Shayne. We have 2 little ones together...Ayden is 8 and Lily is almost 5.

 I'm a hair stylist, nail tech, and makeup artist turned stay-at-home-mom, so I write about crafty stuff, parenting challenges, wife duties, books & reading, sewing, cooking, family fun, and beauty tips & secrets. I might not look like your average Susie Homemaker but don't be fooled...I've got some experience under my belt! I also co-host an awesome linky party every Tuesday called The Pinspiration Project where you can share your Pinterest inspired creations.

I wanted to share a one of my top blog posts with you guys because I get so excited when I talk to people about it. It's all about using apple cider vinegar (ACV) on your skin for acne. You can read the entire original post here where I share with you my struggle as a 28 year old mom of two and still being embarrassed by breakouts. I'll explain step by step how to make your ACV toner and how/when to apply it. I'll also explain how to start with a diluted concentrate of the stuff and how to gradually increase the ACV amount for maximum results {I started at 25% & now I'm using 100% undiluted ACV}. I'll also go over things like the smell {no, I don't smell like vinegar all day!} and why it works so well for problem skin like mine.

If you would have told me 6 months ago {before using ACV} that pretty soon I'd be confident enough to leave the house without a full face of foundation on I would have laughed at you.

The above picture was just taken before leaving the house the other day. Yes, I have makeup on, but I have nothing on my face besides a little powder for the shine and my eye makeup. This is a huge step for me because in my original post I said how I'd love to be one of those women who didn't have to wear foundation every day. That's finally me!

It's been 6 months since my original post about ACV and I have to say that my skin has completely transformed. I have pretty much no breakouts anymore (other than a few random hormonal ones here or there). I'm not spending a fortune on acne medicated cleansers and creams, and my skin isn't irritated or sensitive at all anymore. I don't have to wear foundation. I don't have to worry about someone staring at a zit on my face anymore. I have more confidence and I don't feel like a teenager going through puberty anymore!

If you are dealing with breakouts at all, I highly recommend giving ACV a shot. It's super cheap and what have you got to lose? Make sure to read my post carefully that explains how to use it. And after you get your breakouts under control make sure to read my 2nd most popular post on the Acne Scar Fading Mask.

Please feel free to email me with any questions or comments you might have. I have people emailing me almost daily praising ACV as well and telling me their success stories after using it. I'd love to hear how this has worked for you!

I tried ACV since the conversation on twitter, it has done wonders for my skin! Thanks so much for sharing it's so hard to find a reasonably priced product that actually WORKS.

I'll have to tell my daughter about this post. She spends much more money on Proactive and it doesn't really work all that well. I have heard a lot of uses for ACV, but never skin care. Who knew?!!
