Apple cider vinegar is practically considered magic. It can be looped into a “cure-all” group with products like coconut oil and honey. Eat, drink, or use topically, these products are completely natural and found in nature, so what’s the harm in trying them?
ACV might smell off-putting, but many people have had amazing success with its use. Here are some of its many beautifying benefits, and how to reap them.
Internal health means outer beauty! Here’s how ACV can help…
-It boasts nutrients like vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, biotin, folic acid, potassium, and iron (just to name a few).
-ACV promotes healthy digestion and regular bowel movements.
–Aids in weight loss by stabilizing blood sugar, which helps to control appetite and avoid cravings.
-If you aren’t yet aware, our pH levels have a lot to do with the health of our bodies. You don’t want to be too acidic or to alkaline, and apple cider vinegar helps regulate that.
How to Use Internally: Add 1-3 teaspoons to a glass up to 3 times a day, preferably before meals. It’s also a tasty addition to homemade salad dressings.
-ACV is perfect for the skin, and can be used for everything from acne to psoriasis to general detoxifying. The same way it balances the pH levels in your body, it helps balance the pH levels of the skin (helping keep skin between too oily and too dry).
-Draws toxins out of the skin.Next time you take an epsom salt bath, add some ACV to the water!
-With ingredients like malic acid (which is antibacterial) and amino acids (that help balance hydration), ACV is great when used as a toner, helping clear and prevent blemishes and acne.
–TONER: Put ACV on a cotton pad, and apply to face.
–SPOT TREATMENT: Dab on problem areas before bed.
–MASK: ACV is nearly life changing when used in place of water in the clay mask we mention here.
ACV can also be used in your hair!
–Make hair extra shiny by rinsing after shampooing & conditioning. Mix 2 parts water and 1 part ACV, apply to hair, leave on while you shave, and rinse out (the smell won’t linger).
-Thanks to ACV’s alpha hydroxyl acids which work to exfoliate the skin, ACV can help banish dandruff, and supposedly stimulates hair follicles and promotes hair growth.
