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?
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.
