When we hear the word vinegar we quickly think of food. But the truth is that talking about vinegar is talking about beauty, health, and even cleanliness, since it has different properties to use, according to the needs of each person.
That’s why we have given ourselves the task of finding some of its benefits for you to put into practice.
Most of the time we use it in our salads. But apple vinegar is an excellent ally in beauty treatments.
Remember that to use it you must apply it at night, avoiding contact with the sun; if you do so, you will damage your skin.
1. No stains on the skin
It helps in the elimination of dead cells due to age, leaving fresh and young skin. Add a spoonful of vinegar in half a glass of water and, with the help of a cotton ball, pass the mixture through your skin. Leave it on for 30 minutes and remove with water.
2. Reduces acne
Say goodbye to annoying acne and pimples, remove excess oil from your face and the blemishes caused by it.

Before bathing, relax your head with a scalp massage to remove the dead skin that accumulates. Add a little vinegar to your regular shampoo and bathe as usual.

Apply some undiluted vinegar to the injured skin and leave it on for an hour. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it will also help to calm the pain.

The itching and inflammation caused by a mosquito bite can be quickly relieved thanks to the acids that make up the vinegar.
Dissolve a spoonful of it in a cup of water, apply with a cotton ball and let it act for 10 minutes, then rinse.

Mix one tablespoon of vinegar in two cups of water, apply to your face every night before going to sleep. Do not rinse, as this will tighten the skin and stimulate blood circulation in your face.
