Here's How To Make Your Own Apple Cider Vinegar Face Toner--It's Cheap And Beneficial

July 23, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) has so many benefits for your body like boosting energy, aiding indigestion, soothing a sore throat and much more. Although ACV has many benefits for inside the body, it really helps outside the body as well, mainly the face. I’m talking about acne. If you suffer from combination, oily and acne-prone skin, then you’ll want to keep reading.

For months I had been hearing about how great ACV is for treating acne and I finally decided to try it out. Instead of spending upwards of $20 on face toner, I now make my own with ACV and it’s well worth it. ACV balances out the skin and has antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Also, because of the malic and lactic acid found in vinegar, it helps to reduce red marks as well as soften and exfoliate the skin.

If you want to clear up your acne, try using an ACV face toner after cleansing. Here’s how to make your own.

Note: make sure your ACV is in raw/organic form and includes the “Mother” enzyme. I use the brand Bragg’s, which you can find at most natural food stores. Because ACV is very acidic, you need to dilute it with water. Finding the right balance of water to ACV for your toner might take a little while because everyone’s skin is different.

– Buy a small plastic or glass bottle. I got a travel size shampoo bottle from the drugstore and it works great.

– Fill your bottle with the desired amount of distilled water.

– Because the Mother enzyme settles at the bottom, shake your ACV bottle before adding it to the water. Again, add the desired amount.

I started off with three parts water and one part ACV. Now, I fill my bottle with half distilled water and half ACV. If your skin is super sensitive, it’s better to start off with more water until you build up a tolerance. Before each use, shake the bottle to lift up the enzyme. After you cleanse your face, simply dampen a cotton pad with your ACV toner and swipe it all over your face. Allow it to dry and then follow with your usual skincare routine.

It’s also worth mentioning, ACV smells really bad but you’ll get used to it and the smell doesn’t linger on your face.
