Apple cider vinegar is very versatile because it is so much more than food. Because it contains alpha hydroxy acids, it makes for an effective face cleanser. These acids help remove dead skin cells and can effectively clean your pores. Consequently, this makes apple cider vinegar face tonic a great, natural way to clean and revive your skin. When used regularly, it can give you a healthy and fresh-looking complexion.
Apple Cider Vinegar Face Wash Tonic Recipe
This homemade tonic is simple and has only three ingredients. To make it, combine:
- 100 ml of water
- 1 teaspoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar
- 3 drops of lavender or frankincense essential oil
Before you use the tonic, always make sure that you’ve washed off all of your makeup. I also like to first wash my face with diluted Dr. Bronner’s peppermint soap.
Before you use the tonic, always shake the bottle first. Then, apply to the face using a cotton pad. Alternately, you can pour the mixture into a small glass spray bottle and mist the face once or twice. After 30 minutes, splash cool water on the face and blot dry.
Use this tonic each night before you go to bed. If you like to use a night cream, then apply the tonic 30 minutes to one hour before you apply the cream.
After using the apple cider vinegar face tonic, your skin will immediately feel fresher. Regular use may even make your skin more elastic and toned.
This Tonic is Versatile
You can apply the apple cider vinegar tonic to other parts of the body. For example, it can make the skin on your feet smoother without the use of exfoliants. The tonic will also acts as a deodorant, so it will help you get rid of any unpleasant foot odor.
Apple cider vinegar can also help diminish the appearance of age spots. If you don’t see your age spots decrease with the use of the face tonic, you can even apply undiluted apple cider vinegar directly onto the spots and then rinse off after 10 to 15 minutes.
Here’s to a healthy complexion and youthful-looking skin!
