Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is a common condiment in the panty, but it’s rarely used outside of the kitchen. Did you know, It could benefit your skin in so many ways! The secret is that Apple Cider Vinegar balances the pH when applied to the skin. Its antiseptic properties, help prevent any fungal infections and create an environment where it’s nearly impossible for bacteria to grow! Below are 10 Apple Cider Vinegar Skincare Hacks that can be incorporated into anybody’s daily routine:
Hair Rinse and/or Co-Wash: ACV makes a great Hair Rinse. It removes product buildup, adds shine and bounce to hair. After its use, hair feels extremely soft and full of body. Next time you feel like skipping the shampoo, opt for ACV as a Co-Wash or substitute shampooing with ACV diluted in water. Hair will be left more manageable and full of shine.
Dry skin/Dandruff remedy: ACV also helps to fight off dandruff/dry skin. Applying vinegar to hair and massaging into scalp for 30 min to an hour will leave your scalp flake free.
