Top 5 Beauty Uses For Apple Cider Vinegar

Top 5 Beauty Uses For Apple Cider Vinegar, By Barbie's Beauty Bits

Today, I wanted to share with you a Pantry to Pretty Bit.  Getting Gorgeous For Less, With At Home Beauty Creations.  Today’s bit is with Apple Cider Vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is one of the great all-time pure goodness remedies from grandma.  It contains natural bacteria fighting properties as well as various minerals and other elements that are important to maintaining a healthy body.  You can use it to help with skin conditions, as well as some other ailments.  See below my Top 5 Beauty Uses For Apple Cider Vinegar.

I’ll start with this one first as it’s that time of the year, with allergies and colds; you can get a sore throat.  And we all know how painful these can be.  But with apple cider vinegars wonderful antibacterial factors, it is sure to soothe this away.

Ingredients For Sore Throat Remedy:
  • One tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar.
  • One tablespoon of pure organic honey.
  • One cup of warm water.
  • Mix well.
You can also make a formula to gargle. Personally, for a really sore throat I prefer this; I just cut down the water to about ½ cup.

Important: Apple cider vinegar is very acidic, so with any mixture you make, it is imperative that you always dilute it with juice or water.  DO NOT GIVE HONEY or the above mixture to children or infants.

Facial Toner:
Apple cider vinegar is great to treat acne, minimize pores and other skin issues.

How To:
  • Mix 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 2 cups of water.
  • Dip a cotton ball or cloth (I prefer to use THE MAKEUP ERASER) into mixture and wipe it all over your face.
  • Like other toners, there is no need to rinse off.
  • You will get used to the scent.  If not, it will start to disappear in about 10 minutes.

Hair Rinse:
I love using this to help remove hair product residue.

How To:
  • I find it best to use this in the sink, instead of the shower. 
  • Mix 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup water.
  • Wash your hair and apply before you condition.
  • Rinse out and condition as normal.

Razor Bumps & Irritation:
ACV is great for inflamed areas on the skin.

How To:
  • For this, I use the sore throat remedy that has a combo of both honey and vinegar.
  • Simply apply to the skin and leave for about 5-7 minutes and rinse.

My Diet:
The expression "An apple a day, keeps the doctor away", is perfect,in this case.  As I take a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar daily (diluted with some water).  According to a trainer friend of mine, it can help with breaking down some starches, digestion, detoxing and blood sugar control. As mentioned prior, it is important to make sure you don't drink it straight as it can eat away at your tooth enamel & throat.

Lastly, for all of these hacks, you need to make sure you have the correct ingredients.  Starting with the right type of apple cider vinegar, being raw-unfiltered vinegar.  I prefer to use Braggs organic, as it is also unpasteurized and gluten free.  Furthermore, it is important that you consult with your doctor or health-care professional prior.

So there you have it, my Top 5 Beauty Uses For Apple Cider Vinegar. Do you have any tricks or ways that you use apple cider vinegar? If so let me know!
