Did you know that you can use apple cider vinegar for your skin and hair as well as in cooking?
Since apple cider vinegar is natural, it is widely used today for many purposes. We use apple cider vinegar in meals for cleaning and to add a different flavor.
If you are planning to apply apple cider vinegar on your skin, keep these in mind:
buy the products with the "Mother" enzymes which are full of probiotics and acetic acid bacteria
always dilute the ACV with 50 percent water, and it can be left on as a toner but you must wear sunblock
A friend of mine who is so into skincare and acne treatment leaves it on as a toner and says that it insanely helps the peeling of dead layers of former pimples leaving his skin without any scars of the previous acne.
Of course, you need to know that every skin type is different, and it may be inconvenient to apply it without consulting a doctor. Therefore, if you have sensitive skin do not use it without consulting.
1. Cleanses the skin and opens the pores
Apple cider vinegar is a natural facial cleanser.
It works so well at cleansing the skin and opening the pores by absorbing the excess oil. This kills the greasy look and helps your skin shine.
However, it is very important to be washed with water after every use due to its acidic nature.
It will be sufficient to wait for 6-7 minutes if applied with the help of some cotton or a cotton pad. The face should then be rinsed with warm water.
You can apply this every day or every other day, depending on your skin type.
If your face feels burning, you should wash your face with warm water immediately. You can also apply it to a small area and test whether you have allergies.
2. A true acne-repellent
The decrease in oil and bacteria on the skin make vinegar a nemesis for acne.
Due to its acidic formula, apple cider vinegar prevents the formation of acne by killing bacteria. Natural vitamins and minerals found in vinegar also support this.
3. Revives your hair
I would like to say that regular use of apple cider vinegar has endless benefits on hair. It makes hair fuller, more vibrant, resistant to breakage...
I wash my hair with apple cider vinegar after every bath. It is obvious to say that apple cider vinegar makes hair plump.
You can guess that it has a pungent smell at first, but after it dries, the smell disappears.
Apple cider vinegar has become so much more than the dressing. If you think I am exaggerating its countless benefits on skin and body, give it a try.
However, do not expect to see results after a month of consistent use. You should be using it for at least 5 months to a year. The length of the process depends on the skin type, brand, how you apply, and how consistent you are.
Never give up, and treat your body with the power of nature!
