Apple cider vinegar is an apple juice fermented with yeast and other useful bacteria. It is a unicorn in the natural beauty world because of its antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties loaded with probiotics, vitamins, and minerals.

ACV contains organic acids, like lactic, citric, malic acids and acetic acid that may help kill the bacteria that causes acne.

The main benefit of apple cider vinegar (ACV) for acne is its ability to fight the bacterium (Propionibacterium acnes) that causes acne and its ability to also remove excess dirt, oil and dissolves dead skin cells.

Just because apple cider vinegar is not a scientifically proven treatment for acne, that doesn’t mean it won’t work for treating acne. One of the things that make apple cider vinegar so great is that it restores the skin’s pH balance.

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO USE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR FOR SKIN?

Before you try using ACV on your face for the first time, try out a test spot to make sure it won’t have an adverse reaction to your skin.

If your skin reacts to it, you can try mixing one part vinegar with four parts of water.  For people with sensitive skin, you might want to dilute it even more with water, but if it doesn’t affect your skin badly, you can try a stronger concentration.

  1. Apple cider vinegar, better known as cider vinegar or apple cider vinegar, is made from the fermentation of sugars, either apple juice or cider. In addition to its culinary utilities, it has other properties that will serve you to look better. First, it can be used to improve the condition of your skin, but since it has a high acid content, it must be diluted with water. Thisis very important because if applied pure it could damage it. Another key recommendation is to perform this treatment overnight before bedtime, wash your face thoroughly the next day with plenty of warm water and then apply cream to your face. Washing well the worked area as soon as we get out of bed is paramount as it could be harmful to the skin exposed to the sun.
