I know, the smell of vinegar is antagonizing..But it works.
I’ve tried it on my hair because it helped in removing left over residues from products but my husband would not go near me due to the smell. Needless to say I wont be doing that again. I think I’ll use plain baking soda mixed in with my shampoo to help with that next time.
I’ve learned that vinegar also helps in brightening the face and keeping your skins pH balanced. You shouldn’t use it alone though. Ever. It acts as an astringent and a very harsh one at most. So diluting it a little or mixing a drizzle with egg or honey can help with it not being so harsh and you’re still getting the same benefits and more by combining it with eggs or honey. I’ve read somewhere that you can even combine it with lemon to help reduce pore size. Um,after using the egg/honey/vinegar recipe I think I’ll just use the lemon as a lemon and sugar scrub only. I would think lemon +vinegar=fiery pores. Wouldn’t recommend it especially if you have sensitive skin. Or if you are allergic to any of these.I used 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar,1 tbsp of honey and two eggs.I mixed the ingredients together and brushed it on my face. I let it sit for 20 minutes (or until it was hard to talk) then rinsed with warm water. My skin had a reddish tint at first as if I just came out of the sun but quickly went to pink. I wouldn’t recommend going into the sun after doing this without a SPF. But later my skin looked brighter and firmer. The eggs are known to tighten skin and reduce inflammation. They call it the natural “botox”. The vinegar has enzymes and is enriched with vitamins and antioxidants while the honey acts as an antiseptic. I’d recommend doing this once a month. Not to often. Oh, and don’t worry the smell subsided after rinsing. My husband was still able to give me smooches. 🙂
