The Miracles of Apple Cider Vinegar

Many a times there are ingredients in our kitchens whose multipurpose benefits we aren’t aware of. One such miraculous product is the unsung Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) which, with its potent ingredients and therapeutic properties, becomes a DIY delight.

First, what is apple cider vinegar?

It is made by taking liquid out of apples, adding yeast and letting it ferment, thus turning it to alcohol. The second process ferments the liquid further converting that alcohol to vinegar and to the version we recognise. Today we uncover the mysterious ingredient’s beauty benefits and how you can add it in your skincare routine.

Repels dandruff

Apple cider vinegar acts as a dandruff repellent thanks to its antibacterial formula; it makes dandruff fade away with every use.

How: Mix equal parts of Apple Cider Vinegar with water, apply and massage it on to your scalp before shampoo. For the lazy girl route, just add a little in your shampoo to make the process easier and as a bonus you won’t have to deal with the smell.

Whitens teeth

ACV can even whiten your teeth. Yes, you heard that right! It has properties that can remove stain and whiten teeth; you just need to be a bit more careful with this one as too much of it can destroy your teeth enamel.

How: Mix one-part ACV with two parts of water, gargle for about a minute and rinse thoroughly with water. Wait for a minimum of half an hour before you brush your teeth.

Softens skin

Having a nice soak after a tiring day is probably the best part of the evening. To make your relaxation even more special, you can add a few drops of ACV to soothe your skin. The vitamins in it will leave your skin smoother and softer.

Strengthen nails

ACV is your nail’s new best friend! You can strengthen your nails, get away with nail fungus and even remove stains with the help of this miraculous liquid. You can either gulp a teaspoon of ACV with water in the morning (Pro tip: This will cleanse your digestive system as well) or soak your fingers for five minutes in the same solution everyday to reap its benefits.

So, how are you adding the miracle ingredient in your beauty routine?
