Everyone familiar with apple cider vinegar (ACV) knows it has been considered a general health tonic throughout the ages. While the pungent smell can deter people from using it, ACV is completely natural with no side effects, making it well worth adding to your day-to-day regimen!
ACV for Acne and Pimples
ACV contains antibacterial and antiseptics that can target and kill the root of acne and pimples deep inside your pores. Further, it contains both malic and lactic acids that help exfoliate and soften the skin. When you feel like you are getting a pimple, just apply a small amount with a cotton pad on the affected area.
ACV for a Natural Skin Toner
You don’t need to buy over-the-counter skin toners filled with chemicals and unnatural ingredients! Go natural and use ACV for your everyday skin toner. ACV can balance your skin’s pH and clear away excess oil. At night, apply evenly on your skin with a cotton pad. The strong odor will subside shortly, so don’t let that stop you from trying this.
ACV for Sunburn Relief
The anti-inflammatory substances in ACV can help soothe and reduce sunburn pain. According to Earth Clinic, ACV’s mineral and vitamin content can nourish the skin faster back to recovery. Pour two cups of ACV into a lukewarm bath and soak for immediate relief!
ACV to Reduce Your Age Spots
According to Organic Facts, ACV can help reduce or even completely eliminate age spots. Add a few drops of ACV to a glass of water and drink. In addition, try mixing ACV and lemon juice, and apply directly to age spots in order to fade their appearance or eliminate them all together.
ACV Detox Bath
ACV is wonderful for an overall detox of your body, including skin issues and yeast infections such as candida. It serves as an overall detoxifier for muscle aches and pains. ACV baths can aid in drawing excess uric acid from your kidneys. And for those who have concerns about body odors, ACV baths can help eliminate that problem, too!
