Here is Why Apple Cider Vinegar should be Your Skins New Best Friend
Apple Cider Vinegar is a very popular clean and green beauty trend. It has many benefits from treating acne to reducing age spots and wrinkles.
How Apple Cider Vinegar Balances pH
The most important benefit of apple cider vinegar (ACV) is its power to restore your skin’s pH. Your skin is covered by a protective layer called the acid mantle which has a pH of 4.5 – 5.5. This delicate mantle can be disturbed simply by water (pH 7) as well as some shampoos and soaps.
A damaged acid mantle allows in bacteria, pollution and leads to moisture loss and free radical damage. Using a toner after cleansing can help prevent a variety of skin conditions.
Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar on Skin
ACV provides probiotic benefits that not only balance the skins' ph but removes dead skin cells and can lighten sun and age spots. It is also effective for improving acne. It removes excess oils and make up that may have been left behind after cleansing.
ACV further benefits the skin via its A and B vitamins, enzymes, mineral salts and amino acids. The antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral properties of the malic acid in raw apple cider vinegar make it an excellent weapon against acne and acne-inducing bacteria. It also has the ability to relieve clogged pores, regulate sebum production, and balance the skins pH.
ACV can reach deep into the skin’s layers and hair follicles, where bacteria can hide. The naturally-occurring alpha hydroxy acids can also help reduce the appearance of acne scars over time. Apple cider vinegar can even reach deep inside pores to kill spot bacteria within 3 minutes of contact!
Apple Cider Vinegar to Treat Sunburns
ACV is an age-old treatment for sunburn. A natural astringent, it helps soothe sunburn pain, and speeds up the healing process by balancing the skin’s pH. In addition, it calms irritation, itching and inflammation, helping to prevent blistering.
