All vinegar! The beauty all-rounder apple cider vinegar.
Actually, my supplies of caring cosmetics are always well stocked. It can still happen that I'm sitting on the couch in the evening or at the weekend, thinking about doing another peeling, mask or hair treatment and realizing that I don't have the corresponding product in the house. But that is by no means a reason to forego my beauty routine, because I now have a whole series of “recipes” with which I can make care products myself from food that I always have in the house. The latest addition to the household is apple cider vinegar, which I actually bought because drinking it regularly is said to strengthen the immune system - perfect for prevention during the current cold season. And what's great for internal use can't hurt for external use - this is also the case with apple cider vinegar.
It shines with a few special properties: It has an antibacterial, germicidal and wound-healing effect. It helps against blemishes, pimples, large pores and oily skin. For example, you can make your own natural fruit acid peeling with apple cider vinegar. To do this, soak a terry towel in warm water and place it on your face for two to three minutes so that the pores open. Then mix a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with half a liter of warm water and soak a tea towel in it. First place the tea towel on your face and then the terry towel over it. After about five minutes, take off both towels, wash your face with warm water and carefully rub off the excess skin cells with the terry towel. Then wash your face again with warm water and gently pat it dry. And that was your fruit acid peeling, which prevents skin impurities, refines the pores, mattifies the complexion and makes it appear clear and pure. And since apple cider vinegar stimulates blood circulation, its use is also a great anti-aging product.
Since apple cider vinegar neutralizes the pH value of the skin, it is also great for hair care. It removes the residues of care products, cleanses the glands of the scalp from sebum residues and thereby degreases them and closes the cuticle layer of the hair. If you dilute two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with a glass of water, you have the perfect conditioner: apply to your hair after washing, leave on for five minutes and rinse thoroughly. The result is soft and beautifully shiny hair.
PS: By the way, apple cider vinegar is not only healthy, but also super tasty. It goes well with hearty dishes and salads, which it gives a great, fruity note. So not just on your face, but also on your food with the apple cider vinegar.
