Plus, it has some spectacular health benefits!

  • Regulates the digestive system

The number one use of apple cider vinegar is to improve the look and texture of hair.

Add raw honey and organic salts to apple cider vinegar and make a great toning and brightening mask. Not only does it nourish the skin, but it also helps to remove bacteria and toxins from the outside of our bodies.

Just as it has inherent anti-inflammatory properties, it has external ones as well. This makes it perfect for anyone with rosacea, eczema, or even psoriasis. Use it to soothe a stubborn burn or bite or relieve veins' swelling in your legs and feet.

And because it is antibacterial, it won’t clog your pores and wash away the nasty bacteria that cause acne.

When added to a bath, it can work all over the body to purify and tone the skin. As it takes away these impurities, it moisturizes you so that you won’t step out of the bath dry and scaly but hydrated and glowing.

Along with all of its other fantastic uses, apple cider vinegar can help to even your skin's appearance. It improves both the tone and texture of your complexion. If you have age spots, use a small amount of apple cider vinegar on them every day to begin to break up and remove the discoloration.

Though the smell of vinegar puts some people off, it can block, absorb, and remove foul odor in the proper application. Many people leave a bowl of vinegar uncovered in their kitchen to absorb fishy scents. This same property can be utilized as a deodorant on the skin!
