Beauty's Best Kept Secret: Apple Cider Vinegar

Growing up, my Grandma swore by this vinegar as a cure-all; She drank it to cure illnesses, and lathered it on her skin. All the while I thought she was crazy, but as it turns out, there is reasoning behind her obsession! Apple cider vinegar is all-natural, and has an unbelievable amount of health/beauty benefits when used topically and when ingested. It also happens to be delicious on a salad!

Hair

Rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar immediately after shampooing (no more than a tablespoon amount, mixed with water) to gain body and shine.

Skin

Apple cider vinegar can also act as a skin toner. Create a skin solution that consists of 1 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 cup of cool water. Then, using a cotton ball, sweep it across your freshly washed face at night. This can help cure acne and promote smooth, evenly-balanced skin.

Smile

Get rid of teeth stains by using apple cider vinegar as a mouthwash!

Weight Loss

Dr. Oz's recommended apple cider vinegar/grapefruit juice beverage is a fantastic aid to any weight loss plan. To kick-start your metabolism, drink the mix that consists of 1 cup of grapefruit juice, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of honey before every meal.
