Stop ignoring your mom and tita when they tell you to use apple cider—available at your nearest grocery store—for all your skincare needs! Here, four ways you can use this kitchen staple to up your beauty game.
Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial liquid. It helps balance the pH levels of your skin. Use it as a toner because its acidity will help dry out blemishes, reduce dry spots, and ward off breakouts. Suffering from psoriasis? Apply a few drops of apple cider vinegar—which will help reduce inflammation—on the affected areas.
First, combine half a cup of apple cider vinegar and four cups of water. Get a clean washcloth and dip it into your mixture. Take the damp cloth and apply it on sunburned skin.
Bid stinky feet goodbye! Combine one cup of apple cider vinegar and four cups of water in a basin. Let your feet soak for about 15 minutes, rinse, and then dry thoroughly. The solution will help battle odor and bacteria on your feet—and will even prevent athlete's foot.
Sweating is good, because it's our body's way of disposing toxins. But a lot of the deodorants and antiperspirants in the market stop your sweat and ultimately, your body’s way of detoxifying. Instead, try rubbing a bit of apple cider vinegar onto your armpits—don’t worry, the vinegar’s smell will immediately disappear once you let it dry.
