Apple Cider Vinegar Beauty Hacks
ACV health and beauty benefits
Have you ever considered the slightly more unconventional ways to use apple cider vinegar? We are going to let you in on some great apple cider vinegar beauty tips that you may have never heard of before!
Apple cider vinegar benefits for skin
There are multiple apple cider vinegar benefits for the skin.
Apple cider vinegar beauty uses are growing in popularity and there’s been a lot of cases where people have seen a vast improvement in their acne after incorporating diluted apple cider vinegar into their skin routine.
As a result of its anti-inflammatory properties, acetic acid and alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), ACV is able to act as an exfoliant for the skin and also absorb any excess oils, unplugging your pores. Apple cider vinegar uses for skin enables the right pH balance, giving you that lovely summer glow!
How to use ACV to benefit your skin
The beauty benefits of apple cider vinegar for skin problems are immense.
We’d recommend diluting the apple cider vinegar with water and then doing a patch test (back of the wrist, or behind your ear) to make sure you’re not allergic/ sensitive to it. Once you’ve done a patch test (at least 24 hours prior), clean your face with a cleanser and toner, as usual, and pop some of the diluted ACV onto a cotton ball and apply to the face.
To see the benefits of this you may need to continue this routine for at least 4-6 weeks.
We also recommend drinking apple cider vinegar for glowing skin. Why not try some of our ready-to-drink shots? Or even our 60-day challenge dosing bottles to try and encourage a natural, healthy glow. By taking a 50ml shot every morning for at least 60-days, you should see an improvement in not just your skin, but also your general wellbeing.
Did you know that you can also use ACV to treat your skin via a face sauna? Simply add a few teaspoons of ACV to some hot water in a bowl, hover your face over the bowl with a towel over your head (to trap the steam) and let the face sauna work its magic!

How to use ACV to benefit your hair
We recommend trying an apple cider vinegar hair rinse. Washing hair with apple cider vinegar can help attack any fungus on the scalp.
Try diluting some ACV with a couple of tablespoons of water & after shampooing and conditioning, pour some of the mixed ACV solutions onto your hair, massaging your scalp & leaving it for a few minutes before rinsing it off with water.
Another way to use apple cider vinegar to benefit your hair is by making an apple cider vinegar hair mask. Try adding some honey and ACV together in a bowl and mix it together until smooth. Apply the mixture to damp hair, starting from your scalp all the way to the ends of your hair. We recommend using a comb to evenly distribute the mixture throughout the hair. Leave the mask in your hair for 10-15 minutes and then rinse it out. You don’t necessarily have to use shampoo to remove the mixture, but if your hair feels slightly oily then use your favourite shampoo to remove any excess of the mixture.
Some people even use apple cider vinegar for hair loss!
Apple cider vinegar benefits for feet
Due to ACVs’ high antibacterial properties, they can be used to help neutralise any odour. It’s also amazing to use as a soft chemical exfoliation for your feet.
