Read on to know how you can use apple cider vinegar as a toner to benefit your skin!
Apple cider vinegar has been used for various medicinal purposes since ages. Not only to heal wounds, but ACV is also used for cosmetic purposes since long in history. In fact, Cleopatra is known to use ACV to cleanse her face regularly. Here is a really quick DIY trick to prepare the toner using ACV and benefit your skin with it.
Based on the skin type you can make a customized toner using ACV.
For sensitive skin. Add one part of ACV to four parts of distilled water and keep this mixture in a clean and dry glass jar. This is a mild and gentle toner, which is perfect for the sensitive skin type.
For normal and dry skin. Add one part of ACV to three parts of distilled water. This ratio of the two ingredients is perfect for normal and dry skin type.
For oily skin. A ratio of one part ACV mixed with one part distilled water is perfect for the oily skin.
You can also add a few drops of hydrosol and any essential oil of your preference to each version of ACV toner and then transfer it into a spray bottle. Store the spray bottle in the refrigerator to use it for a long time.
It is also beneficial to use organic apple cider vinegar with the mother, as the mother contains maximum enzymes, proteins, and skin friendly bacteria in it. Do not use ACV on any cut, wound, or scratch. ACV tends to sting a bit if it is applied on dry skin, pimples, acne, and open pores. Always do a patch test before applying ACV or ACV based ingredients on your skin.
