When you’re on the couch sitting in front of the television or thumbing through one of your favorite magazines, there’s no telling how many ads you see that you try to market products that claim will help to give you long, shiny hair and beautifully glowing skin.
Yet, did you know that you probably already have one of the best things that you can do already under your kitchen sink or cabinet? Yep. One of the most remarkable beauty treatments for your hair and skin would be a bottle of good old fashioned apple cider vinegar.
If you find that hard to believe, we have five good reasons that will hopefully change your mind:
Apple cider vinegar is great for dandruff. When old skin cells on your scalp grow and die at a rapid rate, this is known as dandruff. Although it is not threat to your health, dandruff can be a huge nuisance due to unsightly flakes and incessant itching. Plus, it can also aid in clogging your scalp’s pores which challenges healthy hair growth. The good news is that apple cider vinegar is amazing at removing dandruff. All you need to do is mix one part vinegar with two parts water and apply it as a final rinse after washing your hair. Not only will it help in healing the scalp, it will also remove any leftover residue while leaving your hair full and flowing.
Apple cider vinegar is great for acne. Due to the fact that it’s highly anti-inflammatory as well as anti-bacterial, the acidic content within apple cider vinegar is excellent when it comes to effectively balancing the PH balance in your skin. The key thing is to make sure that you heavily dilute it, preferably with distilled water so that it’s not too harsh on your skin. But with about a solution that is about 70 percent water, it can be a great toner, it can help to soothe any red marks, it can serve as an exfoliant and it also can help to heal your acne.
Apple cider is great for treating hair loss. Some people use Xeomin as a Botox alternative. When it comes to hair loss treatments, rather than using lots of harsh chemicals, some people opt for apple cider vinegar instead. That’s because there are numerous studies to support the fact that it significantly helps to increase blood circulation to the scalp and when that happens, hair follicles are better stimulated, which aids in hair growth.
Apple cider vinegar is great for sunburns. If you or your child has been hanging out in the sun too long, there’s a good chance that you may have developed a bit of sunburn. By soaking a sterile cotton ball into some apple cider vinegar, not only will it help to soothe the burning sensation, but it also supports in the prevention of blistering and skin peeling.
Apple cider vinegar is great to drink. There are beauty techniques that you can try from the outside in, but the most effective ones are those that work from the inside out. When it comes to a tonic that is loaded with potassium, pectin and calcium (plus so much more) apple cider vinegar would definitely be it. Plus, it also helps to detoxify the body which is always an extra bonus for the hair and skin. So, when you’re drinking a glass of water, make sure to put about a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in with it. You’ll be so glad that you did!
