Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
Besides being a great salad dressing, ACV can also be used in your beauty regimen.
Removes Age Spots
It helps eliminate dead cells, leaving the skin fresh and young.
Add a tablespoon of ACV to half a glass of water, and apply all over the skin with a cotton pad. Let it sit for 30 minutes and wipe with a dry towel.
Precaution: Apply at night to avoid contact with the sun, as it can leave spots on the skin.
ACV works wonders for dandruff.
Mix 1 quarter cup of vinegar with 1 quarter cup of water in a spray bottle. Spray onto your hair and scalp, wrap your head in a towel, let it sit for 15 minutes, and rinse. Adding vinegar to your favourite shampoo can also help tackle dandruff.
