Hello - Although it's not very important, I wonder what I can do to get rid of spots from my skin. I seem to only get them on my back, and a few on my shoulders and sometimes top of my chest. Rarely anywhere else. It doesn't matter I guess, but I'd prefer them to be gone. I heard that drinking lots of water can get rid of them? Is that bogus? Is there something I should be eating to sort it out? Or something I shouldn't be eating? Or is it a stress-related thing? Basically I have no idea. First one to give me advice that works is awesome

my spots almost disappeared since i went vegan but sometimes they show up on my shoulders or back.
i use a peeling glove and just basic soap and rub off the respective areas very well. i observed that that helped although some of the damn bastards come back from time to time.
ah yes, and much sunlight is also quite effective :wink:

I think lelle has a point about the sunlight. I only notice spots on parts of my skin which are not tan.

spots are like ummm pimples? Little bumps on the skin that contain puss. They suck. Normally find them on greasy teenagers.

I don't get much sunlight at all :s especially on my back as I never go shirtless. Thanks for all your advice so far, I will try it out and see who is awesome and who's not.

- Sunlight helps, but wash the skin first, i.e. take a shower. It's better to sunbathe when the skin is clean.

- Brewer's yeast is supposed to help, too. But be aware that initially the spots get worse (as tthey're coming out of your skin) before they vanish.

- I noticed that the amount of sugar i eat affects my skin. The more sugar, the more spots, but that's just a personal observation.

- I sometimes get spots (in the face) when i sweat over a long time and don't wash in between, that means, when i do longer workouts than 2hrs, sometimes in the evening i have spots, or sometimes on hot summer days. So perhaps simple washing would be an idea :lol:

Hey Richard,

I don't know your age, but I have had lots of spots till 25. Lots on my back and in my face. I have tried EVERYTHING ! Nothing has helped. From heavy medicine to natural stuff. Then I have heard of apple vinegar! It is an old "houswife" wonderstuff for lots of problems. I do not know if there is any literature in the UK about it. In The Netherlands and Germany there are lots of books about it. It is absolutely not tasty, but I started to drink three times a day a glass with some vinegar and ( I was not vegan that time) with some honey. The spots disappeared very shortly. It has to do with your intestine. Vinegar supports the bacteriums in your intestine (the largest immune system of your body). I used vinegar only a couple of months, but for me it worked. Now, I am 33 and have a perfect skin all over my body.

Hope this helps for you, too.

Thanks nobbi. My physical age is 23. Is it specifically apple vinegar, and not other types like balsamic or malt etc? I will examine the situation

Hi Richard,

Yes it should really be apple vinegar. I have found books on amazon. Just search for apple vinegar.

I forgot to tell also... you can use it also directly on your spots. Clean your face first. I always used to clean my face with something, because I hade very greasy skin, but now I clean it only with water. Make sure that your hands are clean, pour some vinegar in your hands, apply it on your face and DON'T WASH IT OFF !!! It burns a little bit, but has a great effect. A friend of mine has problems of dry skin in the winter, because of the dry air caused by the heating. He always gets a very red, dry skin in his face. No moisturizer helps. Apple vingar works for him within two days.

Good luck.

To be clear, I am meant to put the vinegar onto the area of my skin which has spots on it, not my face right? My face is spot-free, it's just my back that is infected, so I should put the vinegar on my back right? I don't use any other products on my skin, just some kind of shower gel or shampoo, no specific skin products and chemicals etc. I'll try to get my hands on apple vinegar, I have had it before when I was little.

Yep, it should work on all areas. I have had really huge spots on my back filled with painfull puss. I am absolutely smooth know. However, I cannot remember that I have used vinegar quite often on my back. So, I think to drink a little every day should be more important than to clean your skin with it, because I believe that an 'unhealthy' skin has its roots somewhere inside of you.

haha, well, I think that your inner body could need a little support from the outside...

Not to forget... as I have told you before I have been 25 when my spots disappeared. I am sure that it was because of vinegar. However I have heard that there are people, who have to suffer from spots even at 30 or older. So, it could still remain a problem of some hormons, couldn't it? But I am not a doctor of course.

I made a transaction involving a trade of coins and notes in exchange for a bottle of apple vinegar. However, I can't find information anywhere on exactly how much I should consume a day. Searching online reveals that it is definitely recommended as a cure for spots, but they don't explain exactly what I am meant to do. Got any ideas? I don't want to damage myself by drinking too much of it
