Apple cider vinegar is produced in the process of fermentation of apple juice until its sugar turns into vinegar. You can recognize a good ACV if it has a cloudy thing at the bottom of the bottle. That substance contains beneficial bacteria, enzymes, pectin and trace minerals which have numerous health benefits to your health.
If you have problems with pimples, age spots, acne or other skin conditions, apple cider vinegar is the right solution for you.
Always try to use only raw, organic and unpasteurized vinegar.
ACV for pimples and acne– soak a cotton pad in the ACV and apply on the pimple/acne area and let it act for 5 minutes if you use it for the first time, and then wash with warm water. When your skin gets used to it, you can prolong the amount of time. Malic acid, contained in ACV, has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal effects that prevent acne and skin infections. It unblocks the pores which allows the skin to breathe normally, removes the excess oil from your skin, balances the pH levels and the sebum, keeping your skin from being too dry or oily.
ACV for age spots– dip cotton buds in undiluted ACV and apply it on the age spots. Let it act for 20-30 minutes and then wash your face with water. Repeat the procedure once or twice a day for about 6 weeks. ACV contains alpha hydroxyl acids which are able to remove the dead cells from your skin and make it look healthier, younger and refreshed.
ACV for skin cleaning– make your own face tones, diluted with water because it is very acid and can damage your skin. Mix equal amounts of water and vinegar and you can also add green tea, aloe vera or witch hazel. When your skin gets used to it, you can increase the amount of ACV. Shake before use. Dip a cotton bud and apply it to your skin to remove makeup or oil impurities, just try to avoid eye contact. First don`t let it stay longer than 5 minutes. After your skin gets used to it, you can leave it for longer time, if don`t have any reactions. It is recommended to apply it at night. This procedure is also beneficial for treating your acne on the back. After the treatment, use a chemical-free moisturizer such as coconut or jojoba oil.
