You might not love the smell, but you’ll love the many ways in which apple cider vinegar can benefit your skincare routine!

We all know that apple cider vinegar is excellent for your digestive system – but did you know that the simple pantry staple can work magic on your skin? Especially if you suffer from skin-related woes such as oily or acne prone skin.

In fact, its astringent properties (which helps increase blood flow and minimise enlarged pores) makes it one of nature’s most effective weapons for clearing, balancing and healing your skin.

The natural remedy also has the ability to:

  • Reduce swelling on your hands and feet, especially during pregnancy
  • Relieve sunburn (and prevent peeling!)
  • Treat skin infections and fungi
  • Reduce the appearance of acne scars

Why spend hundreds (in some cases, thousands) of rands on fancy-schmancy cleansers and creams, hoping to get the skin you want – when the secret of beautiful skin (and a natural, easily affordable one, at that!) could be stashed in your pantry? Or on a shelf at the grocery store?
