How Apple Cider Vinegar Brings out the Beauty in You

Updated on August 2, 2010

Apple Cider Vinegar is so much more than just for the kitchen.  It smells weird and is extremely bitter, but don't let that put you off.  This amber colored liquid is pure gold for helping to bring out your natural beauty.

The best apple cider vinegar is made from organically grown apples.  It's all natural with no preservatives or chemicals.  This type of apple cider vinegar is going to give you the best results.   I use raw organic apple cider vinegar for the best results.  At under $4.00 for a bottle, you can just imagine how much savings there are compared to beauty treatments that have the same ingredients.

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar for Beauty

  • It's a natural antiseptic.
  • It's rich in alpha-hydroxy acids.
  • It regulates the pH of the skin.
  • It promotes blood circulation.
  • It's anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.

Apple Cider Vinegar Amazing Shine Hair Rinse

  • 1/2 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 4 Cups water

Use this mixture as a final rinse after shampooing and conditioning your hair.  Don't worry, your hair won't smell like vinegar after it dries, but it will have amazing softness and shine.

If you have dandruff or an itchy scalp, soak hair and scalp in full strength apple cider vinegar and leave on for a 1/2 hour.  Shampoo and condition as normal and you'll notice an extreme relief from the flakes and itching.

Improve Your Face

For soft, smooth, and clear skin, pat apple cider vinegar on face before bed and leave it on while you sleep.  In the morning wash face with a gentle exfoliating scrub or washcloth and add your favorite moisturizer.

Zap Zits with Apple Cider Vinegar Mix

Make a paste with apple cider vinegar, honey, and wheat flour.  Cover your pimples with a light coat of the mixture and leave on overnight.  Your zits will clear up in no time!

Lastly, one of my favorite uses for apple cider vinegar is to help my nail polish last longer.  Just remove any old polish and then soak fingers in two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar mixed with a 1/2 cup of water.

It's also a perfect cleaning agent.  Add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in with a dab of your favorite shampoo in a 1/2 cup of water.   Soak your makeup brushes, rinse and lay out to dry.  They'll be clean and sterile for your next use.

Apple Cider Vinegar is also great to have on hand to help relieve sunburns, and to soothe insect bites.  I keep mine in the refrigerator just for all these purposes and more.
