Apple cider vinegar has been used for centuries for various purposes such as cooking, cleaning, weight loss, hair care, disinfecting and blood sugar control but many do not know that it can also be used for skin care, especially for acne prone skin or skin with fine lines and wrinkles.
Apple cider vinegar is antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antifungal and it balances and restores the skin’s natural PH improving the skin complexion, evening out skin tone and reducing the appearance of pores.
This natural remedy is very affordable and to get the best result one should buy a non-filtered one, preferably with the “mother” which is strands of proteins, enzymes and friendly bacteria that give the product a murky, cobweb-like appearance.
When preparing a facial toner one needs a small container, water and apple cider vinegar. A popular mixture of water and ACV is 1 part vinegar and 2 parts of water. Mix and apply with a cotton pad. Apply moisturizer. Try out which mixture is best for your skin and try not to use it every evening since it can be quite drying.
