I've been using ACV as astringent, but I wonder if I'm using the right mix of ACV and water. I started by using 1 tbsp ACV and 1 cup water, but that seemed pretty weak. So then I found a thread on here that said to use a 1-to-1 ratio of ACV to water, so I did that. But now the solution is pretty strong and sometimes burns a little on dry areas. Is that normal? Is my solution too strong?


Expecting #2 in May 2013!

It depends on the person and some people get used to the 'sting'. If it's too strong, work on a 1/3 apple cider vinegar to 2/3 (or even more diluted) water solution and work your way up if needed.
