To tell you the truth, I wasn’t too keen on putting apple cider vinegar on my face in the beginning. For so long, I stuck to my three step cleansing process I thought I had to do to get clear, beautiful skin. Until I tried this natural cleansing product.
You guys, this is the truthhh!!! (I know I always say this but it is the truth, lol)
To help you gravitate towards natural skin care, here’s why apple cider vinegar can be great for your skin, and how to make your own apple cider vinegar facial toner at home.
YOU WILL NEED:
- Raw apple cider vinegar
- Cotton pads
Ratios you can mix:
For sensitive skin: Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water
For normal/dry skin: Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 2 parts water
For oily skin: Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 1 part water
Note: One “part” is any measurement you chose to use. So, if you’re following the sensitive skin ratio, you’ll mix 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar with 4 tablespoon water.
Regardless of your skin type, always do a skin test first before usage. When I first tried it, I used the sensitive skin ratio and gradually moved up to the normal skin ratio.
Mix ingredients together and store in a glass or plastic container. Toner is shelf stable and does not need to be put in the fridge.
To apply, simply use a cotton pad, and lightly rub the toner all over your face. You can also store this apple cider vinegar toner in a spray bottle and spray a light mist directly on your skin to freshen your skin throughout the day. Do not rinse it off after use.
So, why apple cider vinegar???
Apple cider vinegar facial toner balances the natural pH of the skin, and breaks up the bonds between dead skin cells (exfoliating) to keep skin pores open. It also can lighten sun and age spots, and can improve acne and acne scars. And lastly, it’s great for freshening and removing excess oils and make up that may have been left behind.
Best of all? It’s super affordable and contains no added chemical craziness. Now that’s what’s up!
So that’s it guys, my simple home remedy for great skin. It is a tested and trusted product I have been using, and there are so many more benefits to apple cider vinegar , I feel like everyone should have this product at home. Can be used for skin, food, health remedies, hair, you name it!
