Apple cider vinegar has a long history of cosmetic use. It is a restorative tonic for the skin, improving blood circulation to the capillaries that feed the skin and deliver oxygen, toning, maintaining elasticity, purifying and revivifying. It is a natural anti-fungal and an antiseptic.
Vinegar can have a positive effect on acne and itchy skin conditions such as those due to eczema or sunburn and eliminating fungal infections, warts and skin tags.
Apple cider vinegar is made by crushing fresh apples and allowing them ferment. The best quality apple cider vinegar is made with organic apples, allowed to mature in wooden barrels and retains the “mother,” which is a natural sediment. Apple cider vinegar should be a little cloudy with a rich amber color.
Apple cider vinegarcontains natural enzymes, vitamins and minerals and is rich in antioxidants. It contains Vitamins A, B and C, beta carotene, bioflavonoids, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, copper, iron, sulfur, iron, fluorine, silicon, boron and pectin. It naturally balances the pH balance of the skin and the entire body.
Apple cider vinegar boosts the immune system, fights bacterial infections and reduces inflammation. It makes an excellent astringent, even for sensitive or oily skin.
I make my own bathing formulas using the most fresh and organic array of ingredients.
