When apple cider is fermented with yeast and other beneficial microorganisms, apple cider vinegar (ACV) is produced. Apple cider vinegar's effectiveness is mostly due to the fruit acids it contains, such as acetic and malic acid.
Here are some methods to utilize apple cider vinegar for your face, whether you're wanting to treat wrinkles, acne, or even a sunburn.
A spot treatment is a simple approach to stop rogue blemishes from forming. Simply dab a small amount of apple cider vinegar onto the blemish with a moistened cotton swab or cotton ball to make your own apple cider vinegar spot treatment.
Because apple cider vinegar is an antimicrobial, it may help prevent pimples from forming completely.
When applied to the skin, apple cider vinegar is an astringent that can be used as a toner. The following is a recipe for using apple cider vinegar as a skin toner:
- 1 part apple cider vinegar
- 2 parts purified water
After cleansing the skin with a face wash, apply this mixture to the face with a cotton pad or ball. You can alternatively spritz the mixture evenly onto the skin with a spray bottle.
Apple cider vinegar, when used as a face cleanser, effectively removes bacteria and dirt from the skin. To make an all-natural apple cider vinegar face cleanser from scratch, use the following ingredients:
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
Instead of harsh soaps or chemicals, use apple cider vinegar to gently wash.
Apple cider vinegar has received a lot of attention, some of which is justified and some of which is not. You can try ACV because it's quite safe, but don't expect it to be a miracle treatment for everything.
