Apple cider vinegar is known to be used for dieting purposes when one wants to lose extra fat.
However, there are also other advantages to this magical vinegar.
As far as the face is concerned, apple cider vinegar helps with the regulation of the pH of our skin. If you mix 1 cup of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup of cold water (in a plastic bottle) and apply this with a small cotton ball every day in the morning and prior to going to bed, it works as a toner.
When it comes to the hands and feet, one piece of advice would be to rub apple cider vinegar on hands or feet when they are swollen. It is something to keep in mind when one is pregnant.
Apple cider vinegar also benefits clear skin. For one, it helps clear skin that is acre-prone when used on a daily basis. Furthermore, apple cider vinegar kills bad germs and bacteria, while drawing out toxins as well. Mixing cider vinegar with Epsom salts in a bath can also help with acne on the chest and eczema. This can be used for sole detoxifying purposes and healing.
Are you prone to sun burn? Well, diluting 1-2 cups of cider vinegar in warm bath right after the sun burn can dismiss the symptoms and help with the burn.
Now, who doesn’t want healthier hair? For more radiant and vigorous hair, use the vinegar instead of shampoo and/or conditioner. To do this, mix 4-5 tablespoons of baking soda with 1 part apple cider vinegar and 1 part water for a shampoo that is both free of chemicals and illuminating as well.
Once you have done this, rinse and apply 1 cup of the vinegar as a conditioner. If the smell is too strong, feel free to add scented oils to your liking.
Our favorite part of the vinegar is the effects it has on the body in a physical manner. It helps with weight loss, with the stabilizing of the blood sugar for a longer time and helps with controlling one’s appetite. For those of you trying to cut a few excess fat from the belly area or any other part of the body, simply add 1 teaspoonful of apple cider vinegar to 8 oz. of water and drink it over the course of the whole day. For quick results, try to drink at least 64 oz. of water daily.
Get this: it also acts as an antiseptic that soothes bug bites, along with skin allergies right away.
Detox, anyone? This amazing apple cider vinegar helps with detoxification like nothing else! All you have to do is mix 1 ½ cups of the vinegar with one gallon water and drink it all day. This is great for detoxing of kidneys and the body in general. Do not do this more than three days at a time.
Finally, it helps with digestion and in bad cases of food poisoning. Hence, it contains malic acid that helps common digestive problems such as constipation and/or acid-reflux. If you consume 1-2 tablespoons with a glass of water, it can help with the food poisoning.
