What if I told you that Apple Cider Vinegar can be used in over 100 different ways? I want to share 3 of them with you today! Comment below with additional ways you use apple cider vinegar (ACV)!
1) Weight Loss Aid: A study in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health found that consuming 2 tablespoons of ACV every day can help you decrease your body weight, BMI, visceral fat area, and waist circumference (along with a healthy diet of course).
2) All-Purpose Cleaner: A diluted bottle of ACV is a safer, more effective, and cheaper way to clean your kitchen, bathroom, and windows. It effectively removes dirt, mineral deposits, and bacteria from surfaces. Recipe: 1 cup of ACV, 1 cup of water (optional: 6-8 drops of lemon essential oil for fragrance)
3) Facial Toner: Using diluted ACV as a facial toner can help your skin in many ways. Renown dermatologists, Laura and Diana Palmisano, have said that because of the acidity of the ACV, it can help balance the skin’s pH and restore a better environment, aiding in better skin function, prevention of bacterial growth, and exfoliation of dead skin cells. It may also help with acne by reducing oil and helping to unclog pores.
Suggested ACV-to-Water Ratio by Skin Type
Sensitive skin: 1:4
