Apple Cider Vinegar for your skin??
The health benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) are no secret. From immune system support to gut health, and even improvements in heart health, the list of health benefits is endless! Now Apple Cider Vinegar is proving to be a more well-rounded drink than we thought, studies are showing that oral and topical use of apple cider vinegar can improve skin as well.
In its purest form, Apple Cider Vinegar acts as a natural detox for the body, cleansing your gut and flushing out unhealthy toxins, while replenishing your body with vitamins and minerals.
So what does this mean for our skin?
- Due to its detoxifying benefits, not only will we be flushing all the yucky toxins from our body but simultaneously clearing the skin from impurities and preventing it from obtaining any new blemishes.
- The anti-inflammatory properties in ACV also help reduce swelling and redness in the skin, leaving the skin looking smooth and healthy.
- The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar uses its antibacterial and antifungal properties to fight acne.
- Additionally, ACV contains properties like beta-carotene and quercetin, which are known to have anti-aging benefits.
Apple Cider Vinegar has also shown to tone skin, help reduce scarring, and prevent acne when used as a topical treatment in skincare routines. Whether consuming orally or applying it as a topical treatment it is important to dilute the apple cider vinegar because of its potency. It is recommended to mix 1 teaspoon of ACV per 1 cup of water.
