The DEETS: Apple Cider Vinegar


Hi loves! Here is a post that has been HIGHLY requested by many of you :) ALL about APPLE CIDER VINEGAR and why it has changed my overall health so much. I've only done one other DEETS video and that was on oil pulling, which I'll link here: The DEETS #1: Oil PullingYou can purchase ACV right off of Amazon or you should be able to purchase it from your local health store. Here is the link for the Amazon store that I purchase it from: Vitacost Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar


There are really only two cons to using the product: (1) it smells bad but you get used to it in due time (2) it may cause stinging or dryness to your skin if you have active breakouts or if you use it directly without diluting it (work your way up!). 

Here I'll fully detail how I use apple cider vinegar and hopefully that answers all of your questions! 

How I use ACV: 

1. DANDRUFF 

Why?
  • Helps remove dandruff and product buildup
  • Add body and shine 
  • The acidity in the vinegar makes it harder for the fungus that contributes to dandruff to grow on your scalp 
How? 
  • Mix equal parts ACV + water (1/4 cup each) into a spray bottle
  • Shampoo hair then spritz on to hair 
  • Leave it on for 10 minutes
  • Rinse with COLD water 
  • Use 2x/week 
2. Acne Scars

Why?
  • Removes dead skin cells 
  • Lightens scars or age spots due to the acidity 
How?
  • Dilute ACV according to skin sensitivity (start with a greater proportion of water than ACV to begin then gradually increase the amount of ACV) 
    • I personally use 1 part of water + 1 part of ACV currently
    • NOTE: if you use it directly right off the bat it may cause redness, irritation, and dry skin
  • Apply to Q-tip then directly to affected areas only 
  • Do this BEFORE going to bed every night 
3. Toner + Acne 

Why?
  • ACV is an all natural astringent that will help restore the skin's pH 
  • The protective acidic layer of ACV will make your skin feel and look smoother, absorb excess oil, remove dead skin cells, and reduce fine lines (over time) 
  • Beta-carotene in ACV helps counter future skin damage (#winning!) 
How?
  • Dilute ACV according to skin sensitivity (refer to "Acne Scars" section)
  • Soak cotton round in solution 
  • Apply to entire face and neck 
    • I apply it both morning and night 
  • Let it dry before applying moisturizer, serum, makeup, etc.
4. Detox 

Why?
  • What you put IN your body effects your skin more than what you put ON it
  • Your body is constantly trying to maintain a state of homeostasis and it's best to help in that process as much as possible
    • ACV helps maintain a healthy alkaline pH inside your body
  • Two of the leading causes of skin problems are problems with DIGESTION and DETOXIFICATION
  • Normally your liver helps detoxify your body but at times it may get overworked or placed under large amounts of strain 
  •  Detoxifying with ACV will help detoxify your liver, stimulates your cardiovascular circulation, improve energy levels, reduce infections, improves skin tone and complexion because there isn't that much strain on your liver
How?
  • One tablespoon added to one cup/bottle of water 
  • Use a straw to drink this mixture 
    • It will breakdown the enamel of your teeth overtime if you don't! 
  • Ingest it twice daily
    • FIRST time: first thing in the morning before you drink anything else
    • SECOND time: before dinner 
Hopefully you guys found this post helpful! Feel free to leave comments, questions, or concerns on this post of the video itself and I'll get back to you :) Have a great weekend loves! 

Much love, xo
