Apple cider vinegar is a staple of natural medicine. It helps break down fat, supports digestion, and lowers both blood sugar and cholesterol levels. But this natural wonder is not only good for your insides: It also has major benefits for your external appearance. Apple cider vinegar is a top performer in natural cosmetics - and most people don’t have a clue about its many useful properties! Here are a few recipes that prove apple cider vinegar is a true all-purpose remedy.
For Beautiful Hair

If your hair is dry and brittle, apple cider vinegar can bring back its shine. Each strand of hair has an outer coat of protection. If this coat gets a rough, flakey texture, your hair will look dull and flat. The acetic acid in vinegar helps make this outer coat lie flat, which gives your hair a healthy, shiny look. Apple cider vinegar also works wonders for greasy hair. Not only does it remove oil from your hair, but it also cleans unwanted sebum deposits from your scalp.
Instructions for Use:
Begin by washing your hair with shampoo. Then, massage the apple cider vinegar into your hair and let it soak in. If you have very oily hair, it may help to massage the vinegar into your scalp as well. Afterwards, rinse your hair with warm water.

Helps Fight Pimples

The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar helps shrink your pores and dry out pimples. The vinegar has both antibacterial and oil-fighting qualities. Since bacteria are usually the cause of pimples, using vinegar on your skin can improve your complexion.
Instructions for Use:
Mix 50 ml apple cider vinegar with 150 ml of distilled water and pour the mixture into a clean bottle - preferably one with a screw cap. Close the bottle and shake it well. Wash your face with facial soap or a cleansing gel. Afterwards, pour a bit of your homemade apple cider vinegar toner on a cotton pad and wipe your face with it. Make sure you avoid the areas around your mouth and eyes. For the best results, you should use the vinegar mixture in the mornings and the evenings.

Instructions for Use:
In a bucket or bowl, mix lukewarm water with apple cider vinegar in a 4:1 ratio. Soak your feet in the mixture for 15 minutes. This is one way to prevent fungal infections, or if you use it regularly, you can get rid of ones you already have.
