If you're determined to leave a positive mark on the planet, you can start with cosmetics. Turn your bathroom into a battlefield against pollution, climate change, and pesky chemicals. Apple cider vinegar is your secret weapon.
There are ways to consume fewer beauty products. You can choose to buy less makeup, creams, deodorants, soaps, or shampoos and prepare some at home. No, it is not the return to primitive life!
It is apple cider vinegar with which you can take care of your body. Here are some tips to encourage you to use it
1. As a toner
One tablespoon of apple vinegar in two cups of water. Use a damp cotton ball to refresh your face and tighten your skin. Don't worry about the smell: it evaporates quickly. Above all, do not rinse! It will stimulate circulation, prevent breakouts and minimize pores.
2. To combat Dandruff
Mix some apple vinegar with plain water. Massage your scalp before shampooing. Another option is to mix a teaspoon of vinegar in your shampoo and wash your hair with that mixture.
The most important thing is to massage and concentrate on your scalp. Apple vinegar has natural anti-fungal properties that fight dandruff and condition the skin.
3. Hair rinse
Mix two tablespoons of apple vinegar with one cup of water and spray on your hair after washing it. Rinse it well and then use a light conditioner. The acetic acid in the vinegar helps remove unwanted residue and will leave your hair shiny. All the styling products leave a build-up preventing your hair from showing its natural glow. The vinegar will help uncover it!
4. Treatment against insect bites
Wet a cotton ball with undiluted apple vinegar. Apply it to the affected area and you will feel immediate relief. The acids in the vinegar neutralize the itching, while its anti-inflammatory properties reduce swelling and its pH-balancing properties accelerate healing.
5. Foot deodorant
Mix one cup of apple vinegar with four cups of water in a bowl. Soak feet for 15 minutes, rinse and dry. The vinegar has antiseptic properties that help eliminate odors and disinfect the feet. In addition, its anti-fungal attributes prevent and combat athlete's foot.
