Apple Cider Vinegar for Beauty

There has been a huge trend in drinking Apple Cider Vinegar for health benefits including, lowering glucose levels, weight-loss, and heartburn relief. But did you know ACV is also good for beauty maintenance as well? When used properly it can also benefit your face, hair, and body. Here are a few tips:

FACE

ACV can be used as a toner. ACV speeds up cell turnover, therefore making it a great astringent. Dilute it then dab on a cotton ball and apply to the face.

HAIR

ACV can be used to combat dandruff. The acid in ACV controls dryness and can remove oil & dirt.

  1. Use a spray bottle, mix 2 tablespoons with 8oz of water
  2. Spray on scalp like a conditioner
  3. Leave on for 30 minutes, then rinse thoroughly

** The smell will dissipate after a while

BODY 

ACV can be used as a deodorant. The acid kills odor causing bacteria, it absorbs and neutralizes unpleasant smells. Common deodorants are antiperspirants, which inhibit the body’s natural ability to detoxify. Use ACV as a mild refresher by applying it under the arms. Once absorbed it will minimize body odors naturally.

TEETH

ACV can be used as a teeth whitener. The acid is great for lifting stains caused by foods we ingest.  Just be sure to avoid over use as the acidity can also breakdown the enamel.

  1. Mix baking soda and a small amount of ACV in lieu of toothpaste
  2. Use 2X a week (no more)

MAKE-UP

ACV is perfect for cleaning make-up brushes. Since we know ACV kills bacteria, it can be used as an astringent to remove dirt & debris. This can eliminate possible breakouts.

  1. Mix ACV, dish liquid, water, & coco oil
  2. Cleanse thoroughly with solution until clean
  3. Rinse with warm water
  4. Dry overnight

Apple Cider Vinegar has both internal & external benefits when used as directed.
