I love natural remedies, and beauty products you can find or make in your kitchen. One of the things I’m doing these days, is using Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with water as a skin toner!
This super simple DIY remedy can help improve your complexion by balancing and restoring your skin’s natural pH. Our skin is naturally acidic but when our levels are in balance our skin will live at the perfect level between oily and dry. When you pH levels are out of balance, that is when you break out, when your pores get clogged, you are too oily or too dry, your skin can be itchy or irritated, and the list goes on.
Apple Cider Vinegar has a pH of 3 and when diluted, the acidity from the toner can help bring your skin’s pH back to its normal levels. By restoring your skin’s balance, this apple cider vinegar toner can help your skin function optimally, warding off bacteria and shedding dead skin cells at the proper rate so your pores do not get clogged and your skin remains healthy.
Additional benefits to Apple Cider Vinegar Toner:
Rich in natural alpha hydroxy acids
Lightens sun and age spots
Dissolves dead skin cells
Balances the skin’s PH
Improves acne and acne scars
Helps minimize appearance of pores
I like to do a 1:4 ratio when blending the toner. ¼ Apple Cider vinegar, and ¾ water. You can experiment with the ratios and see what your skin likes and responds to the most. You will know when you find it.
