The Beauty Benefits Of Apple Cider Vinegar
As beauty products become a large and growing market, people have begun to wonder what exactly is in the products they have been using religiously on their skin and in their hair. And you should know what exactly you’re using and how it affects you. Many companies and brands can even get away with not telling you all of the ingredients they use because it is less than a certain percentage and not legally required. That is where the recent craze of wanting 100% organic or all natural products come into the picture. With these types of products you don’t have to question what it may contain when there’s only one ingredient and there are many possible uses for it!
Apple cider vinegar is one of these products that has a seemingly endless supply of uses. Here’s a list of some of the most common uses and how to properly incorporate them into your beauty routine.
Apple Cider Vinegar for your Face:
Many shampoos, soaps, and face washes commonly used can cause an imbalance in your skin's natural pH levels. Sometimes even the water from your faucet can have a hand in it. Since there are so many factors that can be attributed to the imbalance it is nearly impossible to avoid. Luckily, apple cider vinegar can help restore your pH levels. By doing this you arre less likely to have rashes and dry skin. It also helps to brighten dull skin!

To soothe irritated and dry skin you need to mix 1 tsp. of apple cider vinegar with 1 tsp. of organic aloe vera juice. Apply this soothing serum in the same way as the face toner.
Detoxifying for Oily Skin
While many of these hacks are helpful with combating dry skin, there is also a way to treat oily skin. Apple cider vinegar mixed with water and witch hazel works very well in balancing your sebum production. This helps to remove excess oil from the skin that causes acne or breakouts. This mixture works best when used three times a week and applied on to face on a cotton ball.
Using this cleansing mask helps, specifically, to remove dead skin cells. This, in turn, increases blood flow to the skin, minimizing pores.
To create this mask you need to mix apple cider vinegar, green clay (which you can get from your local target), and 1 tsp. of honey. Once finished you apply it to your face and allow it to harden for 15-20 minutes. Then rinse off with cool water.
While this facemask is very useful and easy to make, there are many different variations you can find that are apple cider vinegar based. Each containing different ingredients for different specificities you may need for your skin type.
Apple Cider Vinegar for your Body:
In the same way apple cider vinegar helps to brighten the skin on your face, it can be used to
brighten your skin where you may have cellulite. There are two simple ways to help your body flush out toxins, improving your skin elasticity, and reducing cellulite.
The first way is to bathe in it. Fill up your bath how you normally would, just include 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and soak in it for 20 minutes.
The second way it to drink it. Mix 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar and 1 tsp. of honey (for taste) into a cup of water and drink it twice daily. Not only will this help reduce cellulite, but it also helps to even out hormone imbalances (which is a big reason for weight gain).
This next concoction will be a little on the stinkier side, but it does help to reduce age spots. To make
this mixture you will need to mix apple cider vinegar with onion juice. For every two parts apple cider vinegar you will need one part onion juice. Once made, dip a cotton ball in it and rub over age spots. Let the mixture sit for 20-30 minutes then rinse off. Results are best seen when this is used once a day for at least two weeks.
The simplest way to use apple cider vinegar on varicose veins is to soak a bandage and wrap it around your legs for 30 minutes. While you wait for the 30 minutes it is recommended to lay on a flat surface with pillows under your ankles to reduce blood flow to your legs.
Apple Cider Vinegar for Hair:
In the same way that apple cider vinegar rebalances the pH levels in your skin, it can rebalance the pH levels in your scalp. Using an apple cider vinegar hair rinse can bring those pH levels back to normal and fix many common problems people face with
The hair rinse is simply a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with water. When you shower, wash and condition your hair as you usually would. Then you poor the mixture over your hair evenly, and massage it into your scalp. Let it sit for a couple of minutes, then rinse it out. Use this rinse once or twice a week.
This rinse is used for a number of different hair problems. The most common being to make your hair more shiny, promote hair growth, and it is easier to detangle. For all three of these things to be possible the apple cider vinegar properties work to breakdown the buildup of product that sits at the roots of your hair. Destroying the buildup allows your hair to grow easier and produce the oils it needs to have a natural shine to it.
To help relieve your scalp of any sensitivity or dandruff you create the hair rinse the same as above, just adding essential oils. For the itchy scalp you can add 2-3 drops of lavender oil. To help get rid of dandruff you can add 10 drops of tea tree oil. Once you add the essential oils, you apply it in the same manner.
Apple Cider Vinegar for Teeth:
While this may not be the best tasting option, it works really well. Creating a one part apple cider vinegar and three parts water mouthwash can help with teeth discoloration. This can be used daily and will also kill off bacteria that may cause bad breath.
Apple Cider Vinegar for Nails:
In the same way it helps whiten teeth, it can help whiten your nails. Wearing nail polish often can lead to discoloration of your nails that looks like it will never go away. Letting your fingers soak in an equal parts apple cider vinegar and warm water for 20 minutes will help brighten your nails. This can be done as often as twice a day until you get your desired results. Not only will this help with discoloration, but it also helps strengthen brittle nails.
Lots of different companies will try to sell you their products that claim they can do these things, but the ingredient list is five miles long and they might as well be in a different language. All natural and organic products do the same things and more. Trying these healthier alternatives should be a no brainer. Know exactly what it is you’re putting into your body.
